Re: DC JACK FOR Toshiba Satellite P35-S611
You will need a small set of screwdrivers, flathead and phillips, a pair of pliers or nut drivers, and a soldiering iron. A magnetic screw tray is also handy with all the small screws. You will need to completely disassemble the machine and remove the motherboard. If replacing with a new jack you will then need to heat up the soldier holding the jack in place to remove the old jack, then heat and clean out the old soldier from the hole the jack pins fit into. Soldier the new jack into place and put it all back together. I believe the P30 and P35 are basically the same machine, here's a link to disassembly instructions for the P30.

If you are good using a soldering iron on a PC board, you can replace the power adapter jack on the motherboard. If not, you should take it to a repair shop and have it taken care of. The cost to have it repaired at a shop should not exceed $50 including the part.
Open the processor area located under your laptop. You can detached and re attached the processor, some sort of lose contact on pins. If same problem occur, your processor may burnt out. pm me firstname.lastname@example.org i will assist you remotely.
If you have to wiggle the power cord it is most likely the DC jack on the motherboard. It is usually the center pin in the the jack that breaks the solder point and the small tension band inside the jack housing weakens.
oh.. This problem occurs due to the damaged power jack(The port where you plug in the AC adapter). It is very easy to unsolder and resolder the old one. A replacement jack can be obtained from toshiba. I even found a jack for my friend at a local electronic store but a genuine replacement is always advisable. You will find the power jack under the keypad of your laptop.
I have just fixed the same problem on my Toshiba p35 s611. The power jack inside the laptop had been damaged. To reach the problem you must take apart the entire laptop (there are a few guides for doing this online). Next I simply found the positive connection coming from the jack (it is the wire coming out of the back of the jack) and followed it to where it enters the motherboard. I simply flipped it around and re-soldered that one spot. Other sites recommended I remove the jack but I couldn't melt the solder enough to do so, however just trying and adding some fresh solder was enough to fix the problem. I no longer need to jiggle the power connector to the right angle just to get power.
