Hello, I own a Korg M50 myself and I had the same issue, its a quality control issue at their factory but, I may have a solution for you I found at a Korg forum. the issue is with these teeny cables inside the synth. you open the rear panel and firmly press each teeny cable into the terminals again and re attach and secure them firmly just finger push them all into their teeny sockets. this should stop the freezing I tried it the synth played all night with out freezing . I hope this helps other wise the solution with the capacitors is simple you order a new mainboard but they run about 400 plus. but try my solution it may work for yours this answer comes from a korg tech, he stated 90% of this freezing issue he has encountered has been these loose teeny cabling adapters, hope this helps, Have a great day..
First thing would be to check the power supply voltages. It may be the disk drive is failing. Drives are inexpensive, might be worth a try with a new drive. Also check that cables to the drive have not been loosend by handling.
