Yes, those barrel connectors with yellow insulator usually
have two wipers to touch the centre pin (whereas the default
is that it touches the inside of the barrel along one side)
and the socket for these found on laptops also has several
wipers around the outside.
I've seen plenty of laptop PSU sockets for sale as replacements
on e-bay and one of those is probably best.
