    Orange TH30 Channel Switching

    Hi, I have another post about this in the electronics subforum. I have an orange TH30 that is switching unreliably from the front panel switch only without the footswitch plugged it. I thought it may have been the relay, but if it was, it probably wouldnít be working at all. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas of what it could be. I know a faulty jack could cause something like this. Itís a 3 tab cliff style jack. It says on the schematic that all 3 tabs should be grounded when there isnít anything plugged in, but the middle one doesnít ground at all. Itís probably a very simple fix but itís been kind of confusing. Iím not too familiar with these amps and their common issues. Thanks!

    Hereís a schematic: https://music-electronics-forum.com/...3&d=1521589896

    I don't see that anywhere on the schematic you posted?
    The relay or the switch could still be intermittent. Or a shaky solder connection.

    Sorry, I misunderstood the schematic diagram. After looking around a bit more thereís only 1.5vDC on the supply. Iím thinking C8 and C9 may be faulty. Iím going to replace them and see if the supply voltage looks closer to whatís stated

    You can measure AC on the rectifier side of C8 and C9 to verify AC is getting to the rectifier without having to shotgun the caps.

    ďYeah, well, you know, thatís just, like, your opinion, man.Ē
