Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
Loosen the nut slightly. Just enough to turn the jack some. Plug your cable in. If you get sound with the jack moved, then it's just the shield wire hitting the tip of the jack shorting it out. If that doesn't work then either take it to a tech or try and fix it yourself if you're handy with a soldering iron and pulling jacks from semi's.
