Can anyone advise on where I can get a replacement power supply for a SLIMP3? I have tested it with the power supply from one of my SB3s so it is definitely the power unit that is faulty, and it would be nice to get it back in to use.

You don't say where you are but this thread has a couple of suggestions for US and UK:

Looks interesting. Their website does not appear to have any pricing on it. Do you know the price? And, do you have one?

Thanks.

I had the same problem.
I just purchased a Duet etc. in the US and it has US power adapter, but the new power supplies come with slot in clips for each country (but only US supplied for US market) - I wanted a UK one and found this site on the web who sell the UK clips for the Duet. But also, you can purchase the whole power adapters which are good for SB and Slimp3. Make sure you select the correct voltage.
So.. for a 2A adapter try this
http://www.watt-power.co.uk/catalogue/watts-phihong-plugin-adapter-3324v-psa11r-p-44.html
for a more capable 3A adapter, try this
http://www.watt-power.co.uk/catalogue/watts-psa15r-phihong-wall-plug-adapter-energy-star-p-82.html
and for UK power clips to fit the US Duet adapter try these
http://www.watt-power.co.uk/catalogue/input-clip-psmpsar-series-adapters-p-52.html

You might also need the 2.1x5.5mm to 2.5x5.5mm adapter - worth ordering since it is only 1ukp. I'll post back if this is not required.
