Dell Inspiron 9400 has had power jack problems for a while now. I have
to wiggle the cord to get the computer to recognise that it is plugged
in, but in the right position it has been working fine.
However, now it won't boot with the power supply plugged in. When I try
to turn it on, the power light comes on for a few seconds and then turns
off. Nothing else happens. It will still charge when turned off, and
boots fine without the power supply plugged in.
Is this just the power jack getting worse? Or is it a new problem?

Hard to say. Since the broken power jack just might not be able to
handle the turn on power drain anymore. But it could be something else
