Sounds like the T/R relay in the amp needs to have the relay contacts cleaned or adjusted, or the relay should be replaced.

I'm with Phil, relay is first suspect.  

Relay contacts can be cleaned with ordinary white paper or a clay containing rough business card.  

Put the paper between the contacts and polish them.

Don't use anything more abrasive than that on them.
