Laptop Power Problem

My laptop's battery has lost charge over the years where it can't hold power but for about 10 secs so it relies on being hooked up by the laptop chord in a wall outlet. Which is fine because its just used at home, but it keeps cutting off. It will flicker from bright display to darker screen (because it darkens on battery power to save power) and then cut off. I think the problem is the pin in the back of the laptop has gradually got pushed back where sometimes, even though, its plugged in, the pins aren't touching to provide AC power. So, I'm thinking about getting the pin fixed so I won't have this problem. How much does this usually run? Or other suggestions
