I've been having this problem for a while now, I just wanted to see if anyone else has encountered this issue, and if there is a solution. A guy on youtube posted the exact problem that I am experiencing. I've got an ID260, his is an ID60. When I got my amp a while back, everything was fine, but after a few frimware updates, this problem started to show.

Your reference video no longer exists. However, I am not having the issue. Is there a way you could use Deoxit spray on the controls, with the amp off, work the controls and that may fix the issue, if it is due to dirty switches. Just a suggestion. :idea:

Hi. Having exact same problem with TVP valve models moving about on their own and cutting out all sound in the process. Having researched this issue its clear it is NOT an uncommon problem as Ive seen it surface in forums several times. Have not, however, heard an explanation or remedy. Talked to a Blackstar authorized warranty tech and he did not seem to have any insight and furthermore didn't seem too eager to get my business...?...(maybe they are not a joy to work on?). The random and unpredictable nature of the problem means I certainly cant play out with it. I also have an issue where the sound will suddenly go {significantly) dim and (usually) come back after 10 sec or so. This issue is also mentioned in forums but, again, never addressed. Excepting these severe issues the id260tvp is an amazing amp...right now its just an amazing 80lb paperweight. If anyone has ANY insight on these issues please share. Ive had the amp 31 as best as Ive been able to figure is NOT under warranty. Help!?
