1) Have you considered a docking station? The docking station provides
power through the connector on the bottom, and offers other advantages
as well, such as extra USB ports, etc. They are available used on
Amazon and eBay for less than a repair shop would charge.

2) There are people at the Clinic (this afternoon!) who are experienced
in disassembly of Thinkpads. We can at least open it up and take a look
at the power jack. Soldering is also a possibility, although it sounds
as though it needs a replacement part which would have to be ordered.
