Hi, i have a typical 5 year old ony amp, but whenever i turn the volume above a quarter of the way up, it cuts out for about a second at a time (sounds like a cd skipping) untill i turn down a bit.
i though it was over heating, but it is well ventilated.
any ideas, as it works fine otherwise.

If this is the old style potentiometer unplug amp and remove cover to get to volume control. spray contact cleaner made for that purpose at the radio shack stores or similar. Spray it into the control and turn the control back and forth to work it in. Let stand for a few minutes and try it again. Always make sure it is dry on all components first.
You need to check the amp for dry solder joints about the output stages. These amps are notorious for soldering going bad. I would set about re-soldering the entire output stage.
