Looks like the input jack restraining nut came off giving way to the ensuing man handling of non reinforced insertions which severed the connection to the PCB of said jack. There may be other issues but this is the obvious first one that I see. I’ll try to attach some pictures but my initial questions are:

1. Is this the right place to ask for help?

2. Where does a guy buy parts?

3. Can I learn to solder in these uncertain times?

4. Looks like some of the connections are glued in and the would have to come out to get the PCB out. How does that work?

A better look at the under carriage.

I’ll head over to an amp repair forum but does that separation of the PCB pose a larger problem?

First, I cannot tell what that second picture is. And, yes, the broken PCB is a problem as some of the traces are damaged. I suppose that it could be repaired by patching in some wires. But some PCB’s can be damaged by the heat of soldering and is probably not the best thing to learn to solder on. You might be better off letting a tech look at it.

If you are not very knowledgable of electronics (amps) go to a professional tech of good quality. An amp can zap you furiously!

Thanks for the input folks. That second picture is just a bad look at the damaged under the PCB that shows in the second post photo.
Yes I was hoping to use this as a springboard for learning a bit but once I saw the damage to the PCB I was worried it might get more complicated.
I’ll follow up if I decide to journey on.
