Not sure what you mean by off and on. Assuming it just doesn't respond when struck.
I believe most of these, and real electronic drums, use a piezoelectric element to sense when it is struck. Open up the pad in question and see if the element has become disconnected or broken.
The piezo element is a flat round metal disk and can be replaced for fairly cheap if it is broken.
Alternatively there could be a break or short in the wire from that pad. If you can find a way to put a multimeter on the plug and then strike the pad. If it is connected and if it is a peizo element system you should see a small voltage spike.

ok but its not the sensor thats broken, its just the protective pad has fallen off.
