Earlier today my laptop's power adapter stopped working, after a bit of investigation I noticed the problem. It wasn't with the adapter itself or the plug that goes into the laptop but with the cord that plugs into the wall. The part of that cord that plugs into the adapter forms into 2 connected circles and each circle has a small piece of metal tubing inside of it, except one of the pieces of metal tubing had fallen out. I shoved it back in and pushed it as far down as I could but I can only get the adapter to work if I firmly press the adapter and the power cord together. Is there any way that I can reconnect this tubing and get the cord to work again?

(Im sorry if this sounds confusing Im not quite sure how to best describe my problem)
