Hi guys, I'm hoping you can help me out with this one
and sorry if this is not the place for this kind of stuff,
I read through the categories and decided this to be the best..

I purchased a Bugera 6260 120w guitar amp head
& I'll be playing in the lead channel, it will just switch by itself
to the clean channel, I have to manually set it back to lead
and it will only stay like that for a couple of minutes before going back to clean..


Troubleshooting so far!

-I'm playing through a Marshall 1960a lead,
my head is set to 16ohms just like the cab and it sounds great!
it just changes to itself to clean..
-when I switch both head & cab to 4ohms I get no sound
-I thought maybe the foot switch is the one making
the amp change channel by itself, took it off, still does the same

The head never goes off or stops sending output to the cab,
if the channel changes I can still play and hear my guitar,


any advice?
thanks in advance

Do you have your footswitch plugged in when this happens?

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.

I think they were known to have this problem. A quick goggle search revealed many complaints and no solutions. I thought I remembered someone finding a bad relay inside the amp but I can't find that thread.

Might be worth trying some contact cleaner like Deoxit on the footswitch jack.

Is it a 1/4" jack, or some kind of 7 Pin DIN or MIDI type connection?
Spin 'round carousel when your horse isn't screwed in.

its a 5 pin connector, like the old pc mouses haha..

well guys I opened up the damn thing, seems to be a bad relay,
kinda small to solder in a new one with the equipment I've got, don't have the parts either,
I'll send it to a local tech for repairs :/

thanks for the quick response, would have not noticed the relay being bad if not for your heads up, thanks again (:

See what your local shop can do. It's worth repairing a relay.
