Just take the guitar with you to a local guitar music store, where you'll have to go anyhow to get the part, and the store will be happy to repair it for
the price of the part.

Input jack fell inside

Yes, the jack MAY actually be broken. It will need to be serviced. Run cables through the handle to avoid plugs from being yanked sideways and breaking the jacks.

My Epiphone Dot just started humming really loudly when I plug it in - it stops humming when I touch the input jack. I assume it's a grounding issue on the input jack, but how do I get at...

Make you a hook out of a coat hanger. Get inside and hook the wiring to the jack, take the nut off the jack and pull it up through the F hole. You can plug in to it a patch cord so you can pull it back through once fixed. Check out for a wiring diagram.

When I plug my lead into the jack input the guitar just makes a distorted noise a little like when you hold the end on a lead when plugged into an amp. I think maybe the jack inside has bent slightly...

If your unit has a battery, make sure you have fresh batteries. The jack ALSO serves to turn on the battery. If the jack is damaged or you use a TRS cable by mistake, the electronics will not be turned on and the sound will be very weak and distorted.

Guitar cable was under the amp, i picked up the guitar and it pulled the jack. it picks up static but not sound

The cable has a broken wire. If it's the type cable which allows unscrewing the jack, take it apart and look for a loose / broken connection. Repair would be to solder it back. If the jacks on the cord are the molded type, the most practical solution is to replace it.

The hexagon nut came loose for the Guitar -CD/MP3 input from my son's Spider 3 (75) amplifyer. Where can I find a hexagon nut?

Those can be a pain to find. Some are Metric which worsens the problem. There are several types as well. I would first try Radio Shack where they have the drawers of jacks, etc. Those ore probably English thread...

The BEST source would be to search the website for a jack that has the identical nut... the jacks are NOT expensive... under $2. Finding just the nut alone unless a repair shop for amps happens to have one laying around will be near impossible. It is worth trying that source however because USUALLY the jack inside is broken.

No sound when I put in the jack. You just hear a little bit distortion.

First check the cable. If that works fine on another instrument then i would check the input jack next. Also try turning the volume knobs. You may have a dead spot on the potentiometer.

Plug-in jack fell inside body

Try to see if you can fish one of the wires attached to the jack out enough to get the jack through the F hole. If you can get to the jack, get some medical tubing ( like they use in sling shots for example ) that will fit inside a jack. Stick the medical tubing through the guitar starting at the outside of the hole the jack is supposed to be in. Once you can fish the end of the tubing out through the Fhole, insert it into the jack and gently and carefully manuever the jack back into position by pulling on the other end of the tubing. You should be able to slide the washer and then the nut down over the tubing until you can thread them back into -place. Hope this helps.

Getting Static noise when plugged in to amp

This is a very common problem that I have repaired for many friends. Sometimes the guitar jack becomes loose and gets rotated to the point where the wire breaks and/or touches the cord plug when it's inserted into the jack. You need to remove the access plate/panel at the back of the guitar body and see if the wire is broke or twisted. You may only have to loosen the jack retaining nut and rotate the jack to get the twist out or you may have to remove the jack and resolder the wire back in place. If its broke make sure to solder back on the proper terminal--the one with solder already on it and not the one that the cord plug touches when its inserted. Retighten the jack nut by firmly holding the jack from access side so it doesn't rotate again and cause that undesirable STATIC sound. Hope this helps.
