don't believe you can fix it, every time my powerbook cable gets bent (although not as serious as yours) I just buy a new one.

yeah, if the tip of the power adaptor is broken, your better off just getting a new one.. Im sure someone on these forums has an extra that they would sell you.. If you bought it from apple it would cost $79

I broke the tiop of my power connector off awhile ago. It worked for a long time even without the tip. The tip eventually got stuck inside the connector in the computer and I ended up having to replace the DC-IN board on my 12" G3 IBook.

Good luck.
