Sounds like the pronge on the unit might have come loose from the print, or the pronge is damaged internally. It might still feel like it's properly attached, though. I've steen the same problem of several other types of electronics. (Laptops, electronic pianos and so on) I'de get an electronics serviceman to check it; it's probably a bad connaction in the pronge or from the pronge to the circuit board.
