A screeching noise doesn't sound like a jack problem, more like a messed up amp potentiometer. Mess around with the controls and see if the noise stops...

i'd need to see an internal picture to be sure, but it could be a number of problems. an amp i worked on recently had leads from the input jack going all over the place and if one of those connections is broken then all kinds of stuff could go wrong. for example, if broke your connection to ground then excess current has no place to be 'dumped' and could cause some serious noise.

take it to a tech. especially if it's an old maestro amp, keep her going.
