How do you know if a wire is loose?

Attach the cover plate to the outlet with a screwdriver and look at the terminals with a flashlight. After turning off the breaker that controls the circuit, you should be able to see a loose wire. If the light isn't on, you should replace the bulb. Look for loose wiring when removing the switch cover.
