Loss of power while playing
If you can solder, try resoldering any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. It is likely that after the unit has been working for a while, the heat is causing a marginal connection to open up.
Keep us posted.

This is a common problem with Bugera. And, unfortunately they are made by Behringer who is known to have the worst customer service of all and do not follow through on their warranties.

Zoom MRS 1608 will not power on
I suggest checking to make sure those 2 units can actually use the same adapter and also check the polarity on both to see if they are the same. Most stompbox stuff usually has negative on the center of the socket, instead of positive like other devices. If I spend a little time I could find the manuals and find out for myself but, this was my logical "top of my mind" kind of advice. Those values (volts,mA, and polarity) must be known in order to help you further. I believe it will be 9v, a few 100 mA's, and negative in the center on both but, not sure.

Baldwin pianovelle ps2500 my piano turns on but speakers don't sound can someone give a hint to solve this problem
So I got a used one of these for free because it had the same issue.
I read about battery failure, so I opened up the piano and sure enough the battery had corroded. I also read that the battery is only necessary for the memory feature, which I don’t care too much about. I pulled out the board (super easy to do, no screws or anything, it just pops out) and took it a local electronics/tv repair guy. In about a half hour he took off the battery, fixed a bad trace on the board with a quick solder, and handed it back. $40.
Plugged it back in, bam works like a charm.
As long as there wasn’t too much damage from corrosion, a repair guy should easily be able to do what I described.
I hope this solves your (and anyone else’s) problem!
