JTV-69 Faulty Jack Output

Recommended Posts

Here's a video showing my issue:

The jack output seems to be very picky about the position of the jack in the socket and the slightest of knock can cut off a good portion of the signal. I have tried multiple cables and all with the same result. I've never been rough with it and the guitar is only a few months old.

 

Is this a common issue or am I just unlucky?

To me, it appears to be a classic "cold solder joint failure" on a PCB mounted 1/4 output jack.

 

A good tech should be able to reflow the solder on the 1/4" output jack and implement a repair

 

or replace the JTV output jack assembly

Cheers for the info. I'm going to get in contact with Soundslive who I bought the guitar off, it's less than 6 months old so should still be covered for a repair under the Sales of Goods act.

I have exactly the same problem, although I bought the guitar on eBay a while back. Thanks for the heads up!
