Might be a silly idea, which you have already checked, but I once
struggled with the ame thing on a laptop with a totaly dead battery. 
Eventually I found that the plug I was using fit just fine on the outside,
but the middle connection wasn't making contact simply because the middle
pin was a smaller diameter. When I got the right adapter on the brick it
worked fine.
