My Ibanez jack sockets are loose on the inside

Hi

I recently got me a 2027xvv which has two output jack sockets - so my problem is doubled!!!

Unlike all other ibbys Ive had, the jack sockets are loose - by which I mean they do not hold the lead's plug securely. The slightest touch and the plug pops out a little from the socket and all goes quiet. I've taken a look but it does not seem possible to get to the inside of the socket to tighten the necessay parts for a firmer connection.

Anyone been here before with their guitar and/or can anyone else suggest what I can do to solve the problem?

Many thanks

Max

Anyone had any success with one of these Neutrik sockets in an Ibanez? ...:

If you pop off the back cover for the jacks, you should be able to *lightly* bend the contact point so it holds better. Also make sure the jack is in tightly.

yep. there are 2 (i think...) prongs the lead touches and one of em holds the lead in place. you should be able to bend it back into place lightly.

or just buy a replacement
