Answers :

Your power connector on the laptop has been bumped too many times and the solder connection has worked it's way loose.. somewhat of a common annoyance. Find a good TV Repair shop, maybe a reputable PC repair shop and tell them to please resolder ( better to replace, but could cause rejection if they don't have a source for micro parts ) the connector back onto the motherboard.. could cost you $100 because of what it takes to access the location for a 1 minute solder job.. sad but true, sometimes, EVERYTHING in the laptop has to be removed to solder the connectors on the bottom side of the motherboard, sometimes you can get lucky with bottom side access. Get someone experienced in circuitboard soldering techniques. A hobbist will burn up more than what they are attempting to fix.

Dear dave670,\015\012
\015\012I wish I had a more positive answer for you, but unfortunately the symptoms you describe mean the power jack has gone bad. Very, VERY rarely, it may simply have come loose, and can be re-soldered. I would not count on this being the case.\015\012
\015\012You did not provide details on your laptop (make, model), but the remedies available to you, assuming your laptop is out of warranty, are:\015\012
\015\0121) Have power jack tested by a reputable repair location...and be prepared to have it replaced by them also;\015\012
\015\0122) If you or someone you know is comfortable and confident about replacing an item such as this, look for a reasonably priced replacement part and save money by doing it yourself or with help; \015\012
\015\0123) Purchase an external battery charger, and an extra battery, and run the laptop on batteries only, recharging them with the external charger.\015\012
\015\012I list all these because economic reality can slap us in the face, and you may not be able currently to afford the solution you SHOULD choose, which is to have the laptop repaired properly (because I have to tell you that power jack is almost certainly hosed). \015\012
\015\012The external charger option can at least buy you some time, and DIY repairs are always the most cost-effective if done right...but unfortunately the most expensive if FUBAR'd.\015\012
\015\012Wish I could be of more help, all best,\015\012cordwainer
