Loose synch leads (3.5mm Elinchrom)

Using the 3.5mm leads from Skyport receivers to lights,
On my Elinchrom D-lites (4) - they all seem fine.
But when using on works ancient Style 400BX heads - they seem loose and sometimes need a wiggle or sometimes just don't work!
I thought it was the 1 light I use often, but just tried on another 2 heads and 2 of my 3 leads had issues firing. The 3rd is in my backup kit and seemed ok.
So not sure if the connectors on my leads have worn a bit.
Or the 3.5mm socket on the old StyleBX are wearing out.
Anybody experienced anything similar ?
