    Fitted a 3 band eq to my p/j style bass and it only works with the jack slightly pulled out and the eq controls don't seem to alter tone , every thing is new except the pick ups which have always worked fine before hope some one came help thanks in advance.

    A lot of pre-amps use a TRS (stereo) jack to connect the battery to the circuit using a mono instrument plug.

    If you can, insert a plug an check that the contacts are contacting the plug.

    I have plugged a jack in and can see its touching all 3 terminals but as soon as the jack clicks in the sound goes, and it is a stereo jack it came pre wired

    All I can suggest is to look at all of the solder joints. Thats all I got.
