Finding a replacement power supply for this amplifier will be difficult as they are no longer made.

You can occasionally get one on eBay and similar sites.

However your existing power supply board may be repairable - the most common part to fail on the power supply board is C4 so if you have a soldering iron available you could try fitting a replacement capacitor to C4, or have a local electronics repair shop fit it for you.
