Hi 256Male

Look at the fan in the back and see if it is running. Souns like your PS2 is overheating. Sometimes so much dust and lint build up on the fan it stops. You will merely need to clean it up on the inside.

Projector screen turns off after 10-20 seconds

Is the projector receiving a source signal? if not it will power itself down after whatever time you have it set to do so when no signal is present.
Just an idea?

Panasonic PT-53TWD63, TV will not turn on, Red power light blinks

It is most deffinately a convergence chip issue. The die for no reason. They can be bought online for around $10 dollars and anyone with experience with soldering can replace them pretty easily. I have done it.

Sony bravia-flashing red light

I would guess your power supply board is slowly disintegrating. It is hard to tell what it is, until it finishes frying itself out. Plan on replacing the power board soon, 1-3 months maybe.

After 20 mins of play console turns itself off and red light flashes

There are some known issues with the PS3 overheating.

Be sure that there is plenty of room around the unit. ie; not directly under or over another piece of electronic equipment, it needs room to breathe!

There are numerous suppliers of "intercoolers" and fan systems to help cool the unit available for around $20.00.

If you have a small fan, you may want to try it on the unit to be sure that this is indeed the problem!

Good Luck!
