Customer reply replied 2 months ago
around 6 years, I can't remember exactly. I'm wondering if the power supply is failing. If so is this a repair I can undertake myself?
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Harry, Customer Service replied 2 months ago

That is likely and no, you need a certified technician.
