Have your charging ports overheated before? T450 has flickers and overheating issues.

I bought a T450 last December and I observed that whenever I plugged the charger in, the screen flickers one time. I thought that maybe it's a ThinkPad thing so I carried on.

Recently though, it flickers several times; and once it suddenly flickered minutes after it's been plugged in. So then I plugged it out immediately and observed that only the tip of the charger is overheating - the DC-out tip. I'm using an oem 65W 20V AC adapter for my T450.

Have you had such experiences with your ThinkPads? How did you fix it? I'm loving every minute of mine and I hope to keep it for a much longer time.
