Customer Question
My on off switch...

My on off switch (power switch) on the Roland street cube no longer “clicks” when turned on, and I have to press super hard for it to go on. It sometimes does not go on. I am a full time busker and this is the second unit brand new unit this has happened to.

Technician's Assistant: When could you last turn on your instrument?

I can still turn on intermittently.

Technician's Assistant: Do you have access to a voltmeter to test the voltage coming from the AC adapter?

No, I only use batteries. Once I press the button and it goes on, it stays on all night.

Hello: my name is ***** ***** I am a Roland certified technician. From what you are saying it sounds like the power switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Is this unit still under warranty? I have not seen a lot of switches go bad but like any other part, it can happen. What would you like to do?
