Answers :

I suspected the damage cause is inside. It might have some spark inside that affect the wires.

I you want to replace your power adapter send it to the service center near you. Just tell them that its not working. (If under wrranty replacing of parts is free of charge). If you tell them that you accidentally broke it, it replacement is not free of charge due to user fault.
