Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook
It is most likely the power connector on the laptop is faulty and the power adapter is not making electrical connection with the laptop.
You stated that by moving the touchy power plug that you could get it to charge, this is proof that you have a faulty power input connector on the laptop.
Check the power adapter's laptop connector with a multimeter, if there is voltage at the connector then the adapter is OK, the voltage reading should be as stated on the label or slightly higher.
You may be able to get the power connector repaired (it may need resoldering because of a dry joint) or it may need to be replaced.
