My Transporter recently died as well with the same failed display PSU. 
Though this thing is cheap to replace through Rapid, the real issue here
is absolute low-grade "jellybean" electrolytic capacitors used in
building these power supplies.   Rather than buying a new PSU from
Rapid, which would had surely fixed the issue, I ended up re-capping my
failed PSU with high-quality, high-reliability, electrolytic caps by
Panasonic and Nichicon, like should have been installed in the first
place.   You can buy thees parts from Digi-Key or an other electronic
parts supplier for less than $5 US, and they can easily be installed
using a small pencil-soldering iron, good grade electronics solder, some
solder-wick.  If you don't know how to solder, there are many You-Tube
videos the show you how.   Best of luck to all!

Parts I used are as follows:
