They're almost always okay to reuse. Unless the malfunction itself is one that damages the canopy beyond reasonable repair (for example a major tear or tears in the canopy fabric itself) or the canopy lands somewhere that then causes it major damage, you recover your main, reattach it, and jump again once your reserve is repacked.

Of course, sometimes mains go missing after cutaways ... [:/]
