so i was playing guitar today
and at one point i took the cable and put it in and out a couple of times
when i put it in next, there was no sound coming out my amp at all. so i tryed tightening the nut on the jack and it didnt help i tryed many things. Until i tryed lossening the nut when it fell off, i tryed putting it back on but it wont go.
Am i screwed? can it be repaired? how much?

if it's just resoldering, like 5 bucks, if you need an entire new jack, not more than 20 including installation.

more than likely, yes. and it should be under $20, but it depends on if it's your jack or if it's the wiring.

All you've gotta do is re-solder the jack. If the jack is old, you could just go buy a brand new one, shouldn't cost too much.

Assuming you know how to solder.....

If you don't, I'm sure your dad/grandad/uncle/someone in your family does, ask them about how.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

that's why you dont hand tighten a jack...



go to radio shack, by a soldering iron kit, and follow the directions on the kit to reattach these two wires. takes 10 mins.

the usually black ground wire goes on the inner most of the two lugs.
