Its possible that if you changed strings the saddle might have changed position in its slot. It has to sit uniformly on top of the piezo element in order to work properly. Try testing the pickup(piezo element) first before suspecting the preamp.

You can also try putting a fan on the unit to verify if it is a thermal problem.

It is not clear if the volume knob you are talking about is in the amp or the guitar... SINCE you said you verified the amp is OK I have to assume the volume control you are talking about is in the guitar and my answer is based on that...
I SUSPECT that the resistance element and/or the wiper in the volume pot is damaged. One other possibility is the soldering of a wire to the volume pot may be bad. If you are competent with a soldering iron you could replace the pot yourself or take it to a competent guitar shop for repair. I would myself suggest you open the electronics and look for anything obviously wrong. I have ALSO seen one other problem where one lead of a pot is touching the CONDUCTIVE paint in the cavity where the controls are. If the shaft nut becomes loose and the pot slightly rotates this can happen, grounding out the signal.
