The unit is most likely getting too hot. Check your speaker cables for frayed wires that may be touching each other. The amp will continue to work, but work much harder into a lower impedence load. Over time this will damage the amp. If the cables are OK, try running the amp with the speaker wires disconnected. If the unit still behaves the same way, there is a problem internally with the output section that should be corrected ASAP.

I have a YPT-310 Yamaha electronic keyboard. I can play it for about a minute and while I press every key the light up panel flashes. After 1 minute of play it turns off. Any ideas on how to fix it?

The problem is in the inside of ypt310,nothing to do from outside.
Is it after the unit is turned off, and then revived, this conditions happen again?
If the unit still can play for a minute/moment, the damage is usually located on the regulator. There may be a capacitor/resistor/ic damaged by heat. When there is not hot, the regulator is working normally, and the unit was normal. But after a while the heat turned up (at component parts), the regulator becomes abnormal / unstable, and the unit is turns off.
There may also be damage in the other section, which causes the regulator gets hot. If you are not experienced in electronics repair, then leave it to the experts.
Try also, check the wiring-connection from regulator to another board (usually using the socket, it may loose its socket)

My yamaha dt125r starts and runs for a few minutes then cuts out and won`t start for ages how do i fix this ???

Check out the coil. When a bad coil heats up it can become open circuit - closing up again as it cools.

It sounds like you have a part overheating and failing, then cooling off and starting again. i would take it into the nearest Yamaha repair facility or contact your local authorized repair to come take a look before it goes out of warranty.

Htr 5590

Mine played for about and hour then cut off. It would cut off randomly after this hour. I initially thought it was overheating but after seeing other people had it happen after immediate turn on it must not be the case. Intermittent problems like this are difficult to troubleshoot which is why I came to this site hoping someone had found a simple answer. I am a technician and will have to do it the hard way. When I find the answer I will report my findings to this site.

Lights blinking and won't clear

the solution #3 should work.. you may want to try again.... first turn off the Breaker to cut power then wait a few minutes then turn back on, then within 6 seconds try (Heated dry)(normal)(heated dry)(normal).. all lights should light up then you know that you are in the service cycle, and the unit should go into a self test and clear the fault. The test take about 30 minutes. let me know if you can get into it...
