MASSIVE hum

I was playing my guitar yesterday, and suddenly, the sound cuts out, even on both pickups. I plug the lead into other guitars, no problem.

I open up the back of the LP and find a wire from the jack had come off, so I re solder it back.

Now I can hear the guitar, on top of this insanely loud low frequency hum.

If I need to post a sound clip later I will, but just incase, does anyone know the problem? It literally cut out for no reason mid song, I assumed it was the wire that was disconnected, reconnected and now I can hear the guitar underneath the 3x louder hum.
