The power plug, did it come with the Surface in the box?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, I just opened the box

ok, it will fit then Dennis, you just need to jam it very hard in so it seats.
How hard are you able to push on it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I couldn't push any harder. It looks and feels as though the pins are smaller than the socket

ok, very rare but looks like then you have been provided the wrong power adapter sorry Dennis.
You will have to return the Surface to the place of purchase and receive the proper power adapter for the unit. If you cannot connect it, then it will need to have the power adapter replaced sorry.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
