You can take it to any electronics place and they should be able to repair your P/S,I had a friend repair my 45 amp rivergate and he said they are very simple to work on.I could have fixed it myself,just didn't have the time at the moment.

please take extreme care in taking apart any power supply. make absolute sure that the supply has been unplugged for at least 15 minutes before removing the cover.

isn't the rectifier that usually goes bad in them? anybody that can solder can do it themselves. you can replace it with one that is more heavy duty... from an electronics store or radio shack.

Power Supply

It is rare for a rectifier to go bad in a regulated supply. Most likely it took out a pass transistor.
