I got a super annoying wiggly dc jack, can anyone give me any suggestions on how to fix it without having to buy a new one?

Not being an electrician, if you go and twitch it to work, it could short circuit that electronic device attached to it. I used some time toothpicks with duck tape so that the wire would stay still when getting out from the dc jack. If it is the jack itself not the wire which wiggles now that another thing. Thats why they make them so tricky, so you would be forced to buy another one.
