G&L JB-2 input jack problem - help please

  1. My new (to me) JB-2 has a serious input jack issue - would love help!


    Played it for over two hours today to get to know it...and the bass completely started cutting out. Took me a while to figure it out, but the input jack (inside connection) is loose. I can make the bass cut out just by moving the cable input slightly. I opened the back, and the input jack is a closed jack (meaning the cable end does not protrude into the control cavity. So I have nothing to "bend" into place or tighten...I'm at a loss on how to correct this.

    Unfortunately, I can't play out with it if it cuts out whenever the cable input moves.
