I tried to search for a similar thread, but after going through +200 posts I gave up. I have a crap bass called Encore. It was dead because the wires were torn apart from the pots etc. I managed to fix that last night, but I have another problem that I have not yet been able to fix. Here goes... When I insert the lead into the input jack, then I can´t get any sound from the bass. If I remove the lead and just insert it halfway into the jack, then suddenly the bass comes to life. But it´s loose though, if I lean over then the lead falls out of the jack. How on earth can I fix this? Any recommandations?
