Toshiba 26AV502U Optical Digital Audio Output

I bought a cable called a "TOS Link" optical digital audio cable, and plugged it into my home theater, then tried to plug it into this TV, but it fit loosely in the TV and just dropped out of the plug when I let go of it. Even if I got it to stay temporarily, it didn't work, there was no sound.

I can't figure out if I bought the wrong TOS link male to male cable, but it's the only optical digital audio type of cable I've seen on the market. It is the right shape for the output on my TV. Is my TV set defective?
