So I was playing my guitar (epiphone les paul special II) and I noticed the output jack was loose....so logically I tightened it. When I plugged everthing back in the amp didnt get the signal from my guitar. I know its a problem with the guitar cause I tried both my amps.....yeah. I don't really feel like taking a 50 dollar guitar in either so I do want to fix it myself. Any suggestions?

Tightening the input Jack
1) Open up the input jack's plate, do not tighten it from the outside coz it will twist and snap the connection inside.
2) Insert the jack, see whether the connection is proper, then only you tighten it. Make sure that the shield and tip connects to the hot (red). Also, tighten it properly so that you dont have to do it again. Always good to use plumber's tape if its loose.
3) Test out which wires go where by tuning ur amp on if you're not sure. Resolder the connection.
4) Screw back the plate.
