Wont charge/play iPod when connected via dock unless tilted fowards

I have the iH56 model (I assume its the same besides some color differences) and whenever I plug my iPod in, it doesn't play or charge unless I push on the top.
There's a small piece of plastic missing from the 30pin and I was assuming that was the issue but i cant find anything on it
(I have tried 3rd 5th and 6th gen iPod classics, along with a 2nd gen Mini, all of them have the same result)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Common problem. The connector is just really worn out.

Is there a way to fix it without replacing the connector itself?
