Theres a good posibility that the solder connections are the only thinbg wrong with the connections BUT theres a possibility that the Printed curcuit board its self is a flex board and that the flex connections are torn. If thats the case you probably wont be able to fix the unit. If you can open the unit then you can look at the connections and see if its just plain old solder connections?? Good Luck

If you remove the "hold" switch from the back of the unit, you'll discover a screw. Remove the screw and gently life the metal off cover off, it's might appear stuck but this is ok, it's held in place with a bit of double sided tape. Once inside there are two more screws... and to remove the PCB, there's another few screws.. Have fun!
However, I'm thinking when you say loose, are you referring to the physical socket? Because inside the player the socket isn't mounted directly to the PCB, instead it's mounted to a super thin plastic with copper-like contacts which in attaches to the main-board. The actual socket is designed to be slightly loose turns this puts less stress on the PCB and it's held in place buy the track controller/collar...
My advice, if it works don't dismantle it..

Its either the jack or the connector in the device is the problem. You can try connecting other headphone, if this works, then the problem lies on the jack of the old headphone.

Within the jack, there is a very delicate balance. The same thing happened to the auxiliary jack in my car. Since it is broken, you'll need to either see if you're eligible for an Apple warranty replacement or repair, see if a local electronics place can fix it at a decent price, or spring for a replacement.
