Dented area around Surface Book charging jack, now it won't charge
So I bought a Microsoft Surface Book i5 128 GB model for college, right? And a few days ago, I dropped it on its side and it just so happened to create a small dent on the charging dock. Now, when I plug it in, it doesn't charge. I cleaned the connectors, and inside the jack, and I can't get a consistent charge. If I wiggle around the connector for a bit, sometimes the charging light flickers, but it never stays for very long, which leads me to believe that maybe the whole thing isn't busted and it's just the dent that's preventing the contact points from really touching.

I took it the Microsoft store and they told me that my warranty doesn't cover physical damage and that I needed to pay $599 for a replacement model, which means I'd lose everything that's currently on my SSD. I said screw that and took it to a repair shop, and they told me there wasn't a way to manually separate the clipboard from the base (which by then the Surface Book was dead and could not detach anything) and they couldn't do anything to help me. Lo and behold, I poked around online and found a way to release the magnetic lock manually, so now I have just the clipboard charging and I'm SOL with the keyboard base.
I was wondering if there was anything I could do to remedy this, because there's next to no one that sells just the base for the Surface Book. Thanks!
