For the first time, When I switched my Kronos X On it did not power at all.
Since the switch felt a little “softer” than usual, after trying on and off a few times I started putting a little pressure on different spots of the switch and it worked.
After playing a few hours, I turned it off and tried tuning it on again just to check.
Same issue, so pressed again in some spots and it turned On again.
It really looks like the switch itself is goin bed.
I could not find any posts with this issue.
If someone has a hint, or if it is possible to buy a new switch, let me know
Thanks

My K2 seems to be getting a little soft in the power switch as well. I haven't had a failure yet. Hoping I will not. Unfortunately, I do not have a solution either, just letting you know that mine is apparently heading down the same road (that I'm not liking).

I leave my K on 99% of the time….wait…I have it plugged into a UPS, and I use the switch on the UPS to turn it on/off. That might save my switch from an early failure.

If you don’t use a UPS, you could use a power strip too.

It's no big deal if the power switch fails as it can easily be replaced. On a K2, since it offers an auto-power off setting (which sends 5 V to mechanically turn the switch off), it uses a remote reset type, costing $25 at the most. If you don't think you can DIY, a decent tech would do it in about 30 minutes.

good to know and thanks for tip.

and yes, understand the studio aspect. I'm a gigging musician, not a studio musician, so I am turning it on and off all the time via the switch.
