Peavey xr-1200 just died?!

hey all,
long time lurker, just joined cuz i need help, got a peavey xr-1200 mixer that i picked up for free (hence why im posting here), it worked just fine, just minor noise in the back ground occasionally (sounded like the wind). anyways, have it hooked up to 2 peavey hundred watt mains, and a peavey sub and i have some music going through, and everything is working fine. and all of a sudden the whole mixing board just dies. it wasnt the power amp, because all lights and function on the board died. and it wasnt like a quick pop and immediate shutoff. it was like a 3 second fade of the lights and sound going out. i have replaced the fuse just in case but to no avail. i have tried several different sockets etc, and i cant get any response from the power circuit. what do you guys think, did my transformer die? what are my options here? any help would be awesome thanks

Unless you have a good grasp of basic electronics, you are probably better off just replacing it. If you have a weird uncle who can fix it for free as a hobby project, then maybe you have a chance....

You did say that the power amp portion still works? If so, you definitely blew out a power supply for the board (and left the high-voltage rails on the power amp alive).
