My friends guitar is currently giving no output. It does have active pickups but we tried a new battery and it didn't help.

He said the hard shell case he's kept it in when not playing was not specifically designed for the time and it seems it has slowly messed with volume pot (and also one of the tone pots somewhat, though that wouldn't be the primary issue here).

The volume pot is rather loose now and can be lifted up probably a quarter inch or so now.

Do you think it's probable that this is the issue? (also, he always turns the volume knob to 0 after playing of course, so if something did get disconnected it would make sense.)

Yeah if it's loose it probably spun around and broke a wire off.
Not much to say except: fix it and tighten up those pots.

Just lift the knob up and turn the pot manually. I think the knob is worn and does not turn anymore.

- EDIT: Me and my quick reading... It seems like one of the wire is snapped off. Open the back cavity and check for loose wires. You can lift the knob and tighten the pot with a wench.

+1. Resolder any loose connections and also add a locking washer to the pot.
Active wiring is too easy.
