Have you tried a contact cleaner? Or is your connector defective? Someone on reddit posted this fix.
I did try contact cleaner... to no avail. I ended up replacing it with a T460s (so I could afford to take this one offline to service the jack).

I do have a dead beat up T440 in my drawer... if they're just harvesting jacks from donor boards, perhaps I ought to do the same. Wasn't sure how easy recovering a jack intact would be.
