Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the requested question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, is the Yamaha inside a cabinet or closed space? And have you tried forced ventilation ? i.e. running a blower/fan over the unit?Still, the described symptom almost always point to an internal hardware issue or more particularly, possible suspect after a quick review of the schematics / Service Manual would be a thermal/heat related concern or in some instances, the temperature sensor itself. A primary suspect would be a low or slow to build-up secondary voltage and/or its peripheral capacitor.The above would require that the unit be opened up for visual inspection, voltage/continuity/resistance checks, confirm faults and effect repairs.I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, there is no quick-n-easy fix and neither is there a workaround; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repairapproach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multimeter and even a soldering iron?Equally important, could you make use of the repair/Service Manual ?
