Try Stabilant. 

I have no affiliation with this product. I've used it to fix 
intermittent connections that drove me crazy. It's not a contact 
cleaner, and you'll have to read the details to understand what it does. 
It's also avaliable from Napa auto parts as CE-1. It's not cheap...

Last time I used this, it was on an external hard drive case that the 
sata connectors would need to be wiggled every time I powered it (even 
tried re-flowing the solder joints!) Put this on it, haven't had to 
touch the connectors in over a year.

If you guys are working on old equipment with sockets and connectors, 
it's really worth looking at.
