Ok, so I hope you realize the Fender FM25DSP guitar amplifier is an "entry level" NON-valve amp with a DSP chip that has model shaping tones. I am sorry but this is a toy and Fender did not spend the tens of thousands of US dollars to have built-in tones that truly 'kill". This not digital modelling like Line 6 or Fractal Audio did and so you have a problem from the start. This amp was always intended as an entry level amp for the bedroom only and never to be used on stage.
Jazz and acoustic modes have some similarities requiring mid-range boost and some rounding. Not easy to achieve with a DSP chip that costs about US$10 to manufacture. Sorry, consider using the amp for practice but look at a more serious valve amps for live on stage

You can tell by the colour. If slightly yellowing, bone. If dirty white but cleans up, plastic.
All quality guitars are bone. Cheap Japanese copies are generally plastic.

Your guitar was made at the Qingdao Plant (Epiphone), China in April, 2016

Contact Yamaha agent in your area, or take the "dc in 6765" to an electronics component store.
If this is a DC power pack that you're describing, just get the same equivalent or higher amps rating at same DC volts.
DC plug must match size to piano socket.

All of the above answers are wrong.

First off, forget about 6ya! Sixya, fixya, scam artists all. See for example, Calling them for a digital piano repair would be like calling a plumber to do brain surgery.

She's asking about a KORG C-155. Not a Roland anything. Not a Technics anything. Not a Kurzweil anything. And the problem isn't about dead notes or intermittent loss of touch sensitivity, or volume issues. Her piano is dead until after a 15 minute warm-up and then plays NORMALLY! This issue just about screams, "POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM!" At least, this is the first place to begin.

For the average user, this is not a DIY project. Troubleshooting it will require an experienced technician with the proper instruments and tools at least an hour to open the unit (ker-ching!), take some measurements, identify the defective assembly or component. Then on a 25 year old unit, he would need to start hunting for replacement part(s), since KORG very likely no longer stocks parts on a unit that old.

That is probably why the typical answer from a professional would be, "save your money, and buy a new unit." Because of the parts issue, the cost of the repair will likely be in the hundreds of dollars (ker-ching!), and when it breaks down again with something else (ker-ching! ker-ching!).

I'm not saying the piano can't be fixed, but I am asserting that it can't be fixed economically by a professional who cannot afford to spend many hours on isolating a defect, hunting online for a USED replacement assembly, or a NEW component (assuming that the repair involves just one or two individual components), then actually doing the repair, and putting the unit back together, and only get paid for a fraction of the actual time involved.

That serial number is listed for a guitar made at the Gibson Kalamazoo Plant, MI, USA in 1962 estimates value (depending on finish and condition) at US$1000 - 1600.

That serial number matches a Fender made in Korea,
between 1988 and 1996.

It also matches an Ibanez made in Korea in 1922.

Give StereoNet a try as they have a classified section and sell lots of 2nd hand HiFi gear.

The green blinking light indicates a failure in the switching supply. Try Diodes D15 and D22 which may have overheated and are shorted or open. The Mouser part # for these diodes are 750-SB2100E-G for reference if needed. You will need to disassemble the unit to get to these parts and locate the parts by number. They have hot glue on them which you can leave off if you need to replace them.
