I bought this no more than a few months ago. And in the middle range there is a loud squeaking sound that resonates louder than the speakers.

Is that under warranty? Can I get it repaired?

As well my power adapter is broken sometimes.. Roland, I am disappointed.

In the UK I would get both items repaired or replaced under warranty.

FP-4 or FP-4F? The FP-4 has been discontinued for nearly 2 years. The FP-4F was introduced in early Spring of 2011. That's not a problem if you purchased new with warranty, but it could be if it is b-stock or other. Here in the US, I believe the FP-4 had 90 days parts & labor and 12 months for parts. Find your receipt and find your service center.
