Have you ever reset the device by removing the battery? If not try that, and leave the battery out for a minute. Afterwards see if it's still doing it.
If it's still not working I'd recommend reloading the OS

I have a blackberry 8700c. As i use it, t keeps switching off randomly.
Recently, i accidently left the charger on too long that it battery expanded - Increased in size!
I have a hunch that the battery has become weak dude to which the cell phone is constantly giving in.
Can anyone help me here?
