I have to wiggle the cord to get it to charge the battery.
Welcome to BC
The DC jack solder joints to the system board could be failing. That's a common hardware problem with laptops. Especially when you put a lot of excess strain on the cord
I would recommend a local repair shop for the fix. No big outfits like Geek Squad
Once it's repaired, if it's a straight-in connection, I recommend a right-angle connector adapter. It tends to swivel and causes less strain
