How are you with a soldering iron? And what kind of jack is it?

Glue. Super Glue or Gorilla Glue.

Put a dab on the part that came out, but not enough that would expand beyond the shaft when the two pieces are pressed together or if the glue expands as it sets.

Let the glue set.

Pull the jack out.

That definitely beats my idea (buy a new 1/4" female jack, crack open the board, pull out the soldering iron and get to work).

Did that with a 1/8" av cable that my son snapped the tip off in one his toys.
#8
theres nothing to latch onto to grab it, so i opened it up, and there were three metal flaps that where in each jack, the kind that lock it into place, i had to bend one of the a decent amount, and just lift the other one, but now one sticks up, so when i plugged everything back in , it didnt work like is should have,so i put tooth picks over them and a rubberband for pressure, and i hope it will bend it just enough to help. maybe im wrong idk, input would help. im furious

Wait. What?

My understanding is that you broke off the tip off a male 1/4" TRS jack inside of a female input jack.

Then you went in and bent the tabs on the inside of the female input jack? Now it doesn't work right?

Well, you have bent the tabs... might as well look at soldering in a new jack now.

Is the jack PCB mounted?
#10
It's just slightly bent. Idk what todo Now. I don't know how to explain what they look like

don't you mean the third from the left? the one in the middle? that is the on that looks like is being held down.

secondly, you are making it awfully difficult for us to understand what the problem is or what it is you are even talking about. I had to google it to figure out what the damn thing is (see below). For those that want to try to help in this emergency, this is a Pedal Board. It looks like the effects Send jack broke off the PCB and he needs to get it back on there. I recommend super glue

here is description off furman web site

yea sorry for not givving the best explanation, its out now but it doest work right and idk why. when i put in a jack, the last metal thing(that there are three of, that make contact, to my beliefe) doesnt move at all, and im thinking thats it.

Lesson learned.

What you are looking for is a 1/4" phone jack.

I suggest contacting Furman for a direct replacement or sourcing one similar from somewhere else.

IIRC that is a stereo jack, and thus has 6 pins sticking through the PCB.
#23
its still completely attached, i mean i could bewrong but im like 99% positive that nothing else is wrong with it besides that. im trying to make it make contact but i guess its failing.

I linked you to it. They are a standard size. You have a standard, 6 connector plastic jack. The one I linked you to is $1.25 and will drop right in.

This one will work too, and has the threaded neck like the jack on your PCB.


there we go! thanks man! im jsut worried it wont fit in perfectl, but if it doesnt(like in the casing not on the board), do you think that would be a problem?

It will fit just fine. Don't worry.

Unsolder the old jack, and the new jack drops right in. Solder the pins in place. Really quick and simple fix, nothing to worry about.

These are a standard size which means the body size and pin spacing are the same.

I have a wee bit of experience with these types of things.

also is this something i could find in store or no

These are hit or miss in Radio Shack stores. A lot of RS's are phasing out discrete components--and the ones that still carry them don't always carry everything. Worth a shot though.

Not having any idea what's near you in the way of independent electronics stores, I don't know where else to guide you.

oretty much radio shacks haha im in jersey. so they may be hit or miss but they do carry them? id prefer it asap i need it for saturday for a show at croc rock

Some Radio Shack's carry plastic 1/4" jacks and some don't. You just have to go check, it's the only way to know.

You could always call and ask them?

PS: Are you typing from a cell phone?
#38
Or if one of the other jacks is not being used he could swap that one out to get it going again...

One little bit of a warning here though: Most RS employees could tell you a lot about cell phones, GPS's, and mp3 players, but couldn't tell you the first thing about what's in their discrete component drawers. So calling and asking about specific components may or may not be the best idea.

However, you could call the stores near you and ask if they carry resistors, capacitors, relays, transistors, etc. and if they say yes, then you know that they at least carry discrete components and can go check it out with your own eyes. If they don't carry discrete components, you know to avoid that location.
