If the warranty doesn't cover it, I'd advise you to just buy a replacement power adapter from any source. Amazon has some used ones, for around US$ 45:

Before you go out and buy a new power cord, maybe try cleaning all the parts with a dry cloth.
I had the same problem when my power connection started acting temperamental, and then stopped working altogether. I thought about buying a new cord, but decided I would try to clean it first.
I found that there was dust buildup which prevented it from making a successful connection. Just be careful that you don't damage anything if you do try to clean it.
