Correct. Like LTG said, resets are usually caused by a bad connection issue. When I say "bad connection", don't get so focused on ONLY the plug connectors. A bad connection can be any thing really... Cold solder joint, bad plug connector, bent pin, corrosion somewhere, a broke trace/scratch on the PCB surface...

Cold, puckered solder joints and the all-too-common open "through holes" that connect to top traces of the PCB to the bottom traces of the PCB (yellow in picture below) will each need to be checked one at a time (guide).

About your question on the plug---> In all honesty, people would only be guessing if that connector is contributing to the problem. It would be best practice to replace and re-pin any connector that is browning like that BUT, that is likely NOT your only concern when trying to fix a case of the resets, even if the plug is relevant to the solution.
