Output jack issues (again)
« on: June 22, 2018, 11:39:08 PM »
I've searched the board and read every output jack related thread that I can find.

Does anyone have a solution to output jack issues (cable wont stay in) short of replacing the jacks?

Otherwise, since Parker's no longer in business, does everyone here use the long Fishman jacks?

I don't know if this will solve your problem or not, but I found this jack and put it on a problem panel on my gig rack, and it solved the problem. It holds the plug in better and holds it firmer.

It does take a replacement though.

Have you tried bending the tabs on the jack?

It should work, but if the metal is fatigued then it may not work forever and a replacement might be necessary eventually.

How do you get to the tabs in a fully enclosed jack?

A dental pick, a strong flashlight and nerves of steel.

But I don’t think the tabs bend as much as the plastic holding the tabs wears a bit and then they slip.

There’s a guide on the Parker guitars site under support for jack replacement. Probably your best bet.
