Hello my name is ***** ***** I am a Kawai certified technician. Can you give me a little more detail on what is happening. That should be a push on push off power switch. for example does it come on while you are holding the switch down and then turn off when you release it? Does the unit come on and run for a few seconds and then shuts off on its own? Does it play and then randomly turn off and on on it's own?
