Mac ADC to DVI Adapter Power Failure - Repair?

For the old ADC Cinema Displays to work with many computers there is an adapter. Apple no longer sells them, and they are expensive. What happens about every 2 years is the power supplies go dead. I would like to know if anyone has repaired these by:

1. Replacing the blown component, or, my first choice,

2. Has anyone tapped in a 24v/5 amp power supply

Thank you so much
