I had this problem. I rarely used my 3rd chainring so swapped it for a bash guard. I had alot of chain slack from before. I was swapping the rear derailleur to a mid-length shorter cage and a better derailleur at the time. Giving me more chain slack. I simply took out four or five links of chain. Just enough to allow the derailleur to provide tension and to shift all gears properly.
