    Hello all. I have an OLP MM2 and my input jack has recently come loose. I opened it up to have a looksee, but I couldn't figure out how to tighten it back up. It seems to have bent in a sort of way, because tightening won't fix the problem. What do yall suggest I do short of taking it in for repair?
     
  2. If it's the open-type of 1/4" jack, you can probably just bend it back into place a bit to get it tightened up.
    Open up that panel, and insert your cable into the jack. You'll see the part that makes contact with the TIP of the cable's plug. Pull the plug out, and bend that piece inward just a bit, then try the plug again. It should make better contact.

    Hope this helps...
