Probably charging jack needs replacement. You can buy a new board off ebay or just the plug and solder it yourself.

Is the DC-IN Jack warm/hot when the charging brick plug is plugged in? If so replace the DC-IN Jack.
Use voltmeter to confirm voltage output of the charging brick (the specs are on the bottom of the charging brick). If voltage is within the written specs then the charging brick is OK.
What results are you seeing when the charging brick plug and wire are moved while plugged into the DC-IN Jack? Compare to same action while attached to the voltmeter? Replace parts as your testing isolates the problem.
Personally, I replace laptop batteries about every 4-5 years of constant use and charging bricks every 6-7 years of constant use. I plug all my equipment into well-maintained backup UPS. The batteries in the backup UPS are replaced every 4-5 years as well. Here in northwest Florida, my UPS are used often (many power outages and lightening storms). I even have a large UPS on all my living room television equipment. My expensive electronic equipment is protected and can be powered for about an hour offline.
I'm not stating you should replace your laptop battery or charging brick now. The cost of battery/charging brick replacement must be weighed with the overall value of the laptop. If you are unsure, then take the laptop to a service center and have a tech check it out.
Basically the charging brick provides voltage, DC-IN jack provides a connection between the charging brick plug and the laptop, the actual battery charging is accomplished on the motherboard.

You dont need a whole motherboard, just the charging pcb board, that is 50ish €. You can test the adapter with voltage meter and see but i have no idea how that works so you'll have to figure that out on your own.

Update: I just assembled the laptop so I can take it to the technician tomorrow, but now it’s charging when it’s turned off only once I power it on it stops charging immediately any ideas?*

Ugh, that sounds like motherboard issue. Hopefully you test the adapter and find out its that because the motherboard will be 150€ at minimum plus taxes and import charges if you're form EU.
