That connector looks pretty chewed up to me. I'd say that it needs at LEAST a good cleaning if not replaced. I happen to not quite believe in the light getting brighter thing, cause it can get brighter but not be getting ENOUGH brighter (the voltage not going high enough). It's also possible that taking the connector apart and putting it back together made it work for a bit, and it may work for a while and then stop. A good cleaning at a minimum is still in order.
