Grab a toothpick and gently clean it. A q-tip with 99% alcohol works too.

Not working. The plug only inserts to the detent and will not insert further.

I would however use a light to check the port and make sure you have removed any foreign debris.

Wow! I found a kernel of rice packed at the bottom. The owner had stuffed the phone in a bag of rice. I used angled tweezers. The alcohol softened the rice. Thanks guys! I have spent 20+ years repairing avionics components. This is starting out pretty entertaining and educational.
