    I got one of those wrappers around a loaf of bread, stuck it in there, wiggled it, and it fixed it.

    Some connector is out of place there, get something in there and wiggle it. Not worth the drive to an Apple Store.

    Is that what that red light from it is? What causes it? Some switch within the port?
