If you are good with a soldering iron yes is the answer.
Make certain it is the jack plug first, by moving the cable around at various points.
Here's what to do, buy a stereo headphone jack plug, gold type are best. Cut the old plug off. On the new plug you will see two small terminals and a long metal one with two flanges on the end. Strip the cable just enough, so that the thickest part just sits where the two flanges are. The striped cable will have two coloured wires (the R & L channels) and some earth wires. The plastic barrel of the plug should be put on the cable before you attach the wires. The left and right wires go on the two smaller terminals, you will have to work out which one is which, by testing the sound. It won't hurt the speakers or your amp if you get them wrong way round, just reverse them. The earths all go on the long shaft. When you have soldered them on, bend the two flanges together so it grips the cable.
PS don't short terminals with either of the channels or the earths.
If you think they might short (touch) insulate them, say with tape. Then put the barrel cover over the end. If the sound is spaced out the earths are not connected good.
If it is not the plug but the wire further up, cut it at that point and fit the plug there. You can get an extension lead for headphones to solve the short cable problem.

I have a crate gx140c guitar amp. When I plug in my guitar there seems to be a Problom with the the input and I get no sound. Is this something I can repair myself or must I take it to a technition?

If the socket you plug into is loose, there is likely a broken wire or a broken solder joint or board. It is not beyond the abilities of those who have some mechanical ability. Just have some patience, do not force anything, and if you have a doubt how things might go back together- take lots of pictures that show details and placements.

Hi, Unfortunately it sounds like the camera is beyond repair. When a camera's dropped like that there's a 50/50 chance that a mechanism in the lens has been broken and it's repairable. From the sounds of yours though, the fact that it won't come back out when you turn the camera on, it sounds like you're better off getting a new camera.

Wow I appreciate your spirit but this is probably a loosing battle. Even if there was a repair manual you would still need the tools. This is a $150.00 - $200.00 lens. I'd probably elect to buy a new one and sell the broken one on EBAY for parts or try to take it apart just to satisfy my curiosity. Sounds like you like adventure.

Good Luck!

Acer 1912 stays dark

By that description sounds it sounds like you need a new monitor. Otherwise I would say if it was just a black screen to reset your CMOS by removing the side panel of your computer, locate the round battery and near the battery is a 3 pin 1 jumper setup most likely jumper on 1,2 but can be 2,3. Which ever the case, unplug the power cord, remove the jump from 1,2 and move it to 2,3 or vice versa remove from 2,3 and move to 2,1 for 1 minute then remove and replace in default position. Plug the power back and and start it up. As I said, wouldn't go through the trouble because your monitor sounds broken.

GE side by side refrigerator ice dispenser

If you take a look at this diagram, you should be able to see all the inner workings of that area and decide if you want to repair it. I think anyone with the most basic mechanical skills could easily handle this repair. See parts 62,63,67, etc. Could just be the spring is off or broken. Let us know what you find!
