Guitar Amp power problems

I hope this is the right place for my question.

I've got a Line 6 Micro Spider guitar amplifier from my sister. It seems like it got wet one day and could not be switched on anymore. I identified some dried water spots on the board and cleaned it with isopropyl.
I didn't think it would turn on again, but it really did after cleaning and drying. Here comes the strange part. It does only switch on every 5-10th time now when I flip the on/off button. When it finally has turned on it works until I turn it off again. This does not make sense to me, as the device is working without any problems when it's turned on eventually.
Does anyone have an idea?

Intermitttent powering-up of equipment usually points to issues with the power supply and failing/failed capacitors.

Show the power supply board.

Short out the switch and see if that is giving you problems. It may just need a squirt of cleaner.
