I had a similar problem with a 30 amp RV power cord. I finally ended up cutting one end off of the cord and installing a new electrical connection to replace the original molded male plug. Just out of curiosity, I used a razor blade and dissected the molded plug. It turns out where the wire INSIDE THE MOLDED PLUG connected to the metal bayonet terminal that plugs into the outlet, it was burned and melted. Bear in mind that this was inside the plug. The extension cord was 2 or three years old, and apparently was defective from the manufacturer. New plug, problem solved. It was a pain, but was still cheaper than buying a new power cord.
It may be that your plug did the same thing, wriggling it caused the circuit to complete temporarily, but now the damage is so extensive, it won't connect. I'll bet if you checked before when it started work, the plug got pretty hot while it was working due to the increased resistance.
