Fame VT-12 Tube mic faulty power supply

Hi,

the power supply of my Fame VT-12 just stopped working. I opened it and saw no obvious signs of default. Does anyone knows which cheap power supply could be used as replacement ?

I read the VT-12 is similar to the Avantone CV-12 or Apex 460. However, the power supply's form factor looks different.

Here's a link to the mic :

Thanks a lot.

Lives for gear
 

That looks like a very straightforward linear power supply; it should not be at all difficult for someone who knows a little about electronics to troubleshoot. I would look into that before trying to find a replacement power supply; however, that being said, it probably would not be too hard to find a suitable replacement if the voltage specifications were known. There appear to be two different voltage produced, one regulated and one apparently unregulated.

Did you check that the fuse, in the little panel just above the cord connection, is not blown?

That's good news. Thanks a lot. Unfortunately I am a super nooby when it comes to electronic stuffs and soldering. The fuse looks normal to me, but I will give it a second look. And yes, there is a 115/230 voltage switch. If I can find a cheap replacement, I may just do it.
This one seems to fit the bill :

Finally it was just the fuse as @ DrewE pointed out
