Headphone jack/electronics question... help!

I have an Mp3 player, and the jack where the headphones plugs in must be a little, well, broken.

If I plug it in normally, it's like it doesn't have a solid connection, sound only comes out of one earpiece... so I turn it a bit, or push it in, or pull it out (save the adult jokes!) and then it tightens up and makes the connection.

Is there anything I can do to fix it? Maybe pour some kind of conducting epoxy or something in there? It's not an expensive player, so it's probably not worth fixing, but I'd hate to just toss it...

Standard question: have you tried other pairs of headphones?

Yeah.. it's definitely the player. I've tried the same headphones in other jacks (works fine), and other headphones in the mp3 player jack (with same results)...
