In many cases these types of issues can be resolved by simply having a repair technician replace the connections in the AC adaptor jack, but how difficult of a task this is can vary from model to model. Sometimes these connections are a single part that can easily be swapped out, though they can just as easily be part of a larger assembly.
What I would suggest is that you contact Apple directly or visit a local manufacturer-authorized repair facility (like your local Best Buy® store) to speak with their on-site staff. Both routes should be able provide you with a number of options, as well as repair estimates if necessary. Please keep in mind though that iPod Minis and iPod Nanos cannot generally be repaired by Best Buy®, so you’ll want to contact Apple first if you own either of these models.
Hope this helps you out.
