Rather than using the crude electrical tape mod, maybe you can disconnect the USB 5V from this end? I'm not certain and I don't have the knowledge of how to figure this out.. just throwing it out there for others who may have more knowledge on how to accomplish this.
A user has written his feedback on the nfb1.32 product page about the usb32 being powered internally, not sure if this is what you meant.

After some switch off and on, it will slip to Low.
Anybody also sees this happen?
The logic gets haywire could be due to the internal jumpers or connectors, related to the gain switch, having intermitten contact.
Try open up the top cover, plug out and in the connectors or jumpers a couple of times, or wiggle them a little if they are glued.
Check on the male pins if there are any residues on them, and the female molex connectors if any wires are breaking off where possible.
This is a something similar that happened to me, when i initially got one of my stuffs. There are some sorts of laquer-like residue that tainted few of the pins. when the amp gets warmed up, it sort of melted the coat, and i got no issues then.
