okay, so if I'm reading this right, the input jack came loose on the amp and fell inside of the chassis?

The easiest remedy to this problem would be to remove the chassis from the amp, and then put the input back in place.


Seems pretty straight forward to me.... Or do I have something confused here? I'm not sure what you mean by preamp, but I'm guessing that you mean to say chassis? And it's not a washer, it would be a nut

what is your difficultly? WARNING ELECTRICITY CAN STILL BE IN THE AMP EVEN AFTER YOU HAVE UNPLUGGED. DON''T POKE AROUND INSIDE THE CHASSIS, i am assuming its like most amps, take the back off, pull tubes out, unsecrew the chassis (if top mounted make sure somebody can catch it, or from the bottom slid out. shake a little bit and it would likely fall out.

Guys, it's a Spider 4.

I assume that it's a PCB mounted jack, yeah? You'll probably have to remove the nuts off all the pots, switches and whatever. Apart from that, look for screws holding down the board. On a Spyder I wouldn't be surprised if there are plastic clips as well (or instead of.)


PS: take photos as you go.

This guy's got it.

I took all of the screws out of the top holding (I guess it'd be the chassis. It's the casing that holds all of the knobs and pots. Sounds like a preamp to me). There's two little bits of wood holding it up so I thought after uncrewing everything it'd slide right out. But it's not wanting to give and I don't want to just yank it out and damage something.

I'll get some pictures up in the morning. The lighting in my house sucks and it's night time out here in California.
