Hey!

Ok so, the screw on the "INPUT" jack on my amp (marshall mg30fx) came loose, and now the actual thing is inside the amplifier!

can it easily be fixed? i dont want to have to take the amplifier apart because that may make it more complicated.

Take your cable and stick it in there, then pull the jack out and screw the bolt on. It should work.

I'm afraid the only way to fix it is to take the amp apart to retrieve the screw. Putting it back together shouldn't be all that hard.

And just to give you a heads up, MGs are vastly hated amps here on UG, so watch out for people who will flame you for owning that amp (I'm not a flamer though).

Only bandwagoners flame in cases like this, mate. Smart people will tell potential buyers to stay away.

And it's not a screw, it's a nut . How the hell did the OUTSIDE nut end up INSIDE the amp?

You will have to open it up to fix it probably. With that said, should be an easy fix. Just take off the back panel of the amplifier and take the electronics out, you should then see the jack. You can probably solder or glue it back into place and put everything back in. Just don't touch any capacitors...or any of the electronics just to be safe.

Sorry didn't realize that. I agree with you now though.

He might be talking about the jack, maybe.

You know you can go to the control panel and set up a signature so you don't have to type that every time you post, right?

Oh. Well, yeah. You'll have to take it apart. Shouldn't be too difficult in all honesty.
