Help me charge my G4 Powerbook

The power connector to my G4 Powerbook is almost dead. It only charges in one very specific position, and I have to twist it around for a few seconds to find the sweetspot (rotating it in situ). Nothing is loose and nothing is visibly wrong. I tried squeezing the metal sleeve slightly to make it more elliptical in the hope this would create a tighter connection, but it made no difference.

I *really* don't want to have to buy another power brick for what is probably a trivial issue, and I also don't want to have to pay an Apple service person $85/hr to dissect it. Any suggestions?
