My Ibanez is broken. The (nut? around the) input jack is loose. I can tighten it but it loosens again. What should I do?

Most likely that's a cheap input jack on that guitar. My suggestion is to replace it. If the hole in the guitar is big enough. Get switchcraft. Problem solved.

Replace it, or just put some blue loctite on the threads and tighten it down. That should hold it.

Make sure you remove the entire assembly and hold both the inside and outside when you tighten it otherwise it's possible you can cause the inside to spiin, ripping out the wiring inside the guitar.

Not a hard fix (just resolder), but still annoying.

Like someone said, many people use loctite to keep it from loosening. Another thing you could try is to get a very thin locking washer (available at any hardware store) and place it in between the nut and the jack.

No it should not be... because with Loctite you may never get it back off without destroying what you are working on.

The Blue (242 Removable) Loctite is still removeable with hand tools and doesn't require anything special to remove/disassemble.

Just make sure you're using the correct type. Other types of Loctite may require high heat treatment to remove or can be permanent.

That's why I said blue. Red requires heat to get off. Blue just holds the nut in place, you can still get it off when you need to.
