Its gotta be that...get some pin-nose pliers and pull it back out, if its crushed in you'll still have to pull it back out and if you do it steady you may not cause more damage. After that i would put a washer on the thread before the nut to stop it going in again, its gotta beat getting the wood filler out.
Or has the little retaining nut come off the jack and it's slipped into the body?

well i was under the impression it messed up the wood, in which case getting a proffesional to do the repair would be a good idea (unless its a cheap copy), but yea if its just a part that needs to be replaced, you dont need a luthier for that
Fair enough, my bad.
Yeah, depends how badly the wood is messed up really, if it's a huge gaping hole then it's probably best to ask a luthier unless you're confident about repairing the finish. But if it's just made the hole a bit bigger it's propably just best to use a large washer.

Ah, so the jack is'nt actually lodged halfway in? The G400 is a nice epiphone and you may want to get a few quote's for a repair but no disrespect, i'd just use a washer before the nut so that the jack stays put and i'm assuming it would cover the damaged area as well. If the colour of the washer stands out i'd use a red or black permanent marker so that its hardly noticeable, it may seem a 'bodge job' way of doing it but i dont think the repair would be cheap in comparison to the value of the guitar itself.
sorry i have been out of town, its the wood thats smashed, its an epiphone g-400, but i have put a lot of money into it and id hate to have it ruined over that, i was thinking just taking a slightly bigger metal washer and putting the input jack into that
