The DC jack, where you plug the power adapter cable, might be loose or defective, & needs to be either re-soldered or replaced.
In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard taken out. Also, the motherboard needs to be checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Unless you've got solder skills it's best to let a local tech do it instead. Going rate used to be around 100 but prices have dropped in certain metropolitan areas. The lowest I've seen someone do it for was 45 with part included! Try craigslist or this site for a local tech near you.

Usually the power socket in the laptop develops poor soldering to the motherboard - any decent repair technician should be able to fix it.
