    Mine lasted right at 10 years. Shipping was more than the items, so I bought 3 or 4 replacements when I bought them.

    I'm in the UK so shipping from Rapid Electronics won't be a problem. Buying a new old stock Transporter on the other hand will have significant shipping costst.

    Another Transporter fixed by using the power supply from Rapid.

    Also, I took the opportunity to replace the aging display itself which was suffering from some burn in/burn out after 13 years or so. I was able to purchase a brand new display on eBay from seller hotdogtec (no affiliation). The display was a brand new, unused, original Slim Devices display; the cost was about $100 and shipping was very fast. While it was not strictly necessary I figured it was a small price to pay for (hopefully) many more years of service. My Transporter now looks and functions as new. Total time to replace both the power supply and display was maybe 20 minutes.

    Congratulations, well done!
    So you bought one of these new front panel PCBs? https://ebay.us/5pDxBd
    That's clearly the cheapest and recommended way to get both displays renewed in one go. Much easier than replacing the individual glass displays. If you want to get rid of your old PCB, I would be interested

    Cheers
    Joe


    PN me if your Boom / Classic / Transporter display has issues!

    Yes, that is the PCB I bought.

    Lol...I will consider your offer but Iĺm leaning towards keeping my old one just in case. It still functions well enough to use as a backup.

    It is supposed to be manufactured by Powerpax Uk, but the Unifive logo is also printed directly on the PCB like on my original part.

    Replacement Transporter power supply free to good home - UK only

    I had a Transporter for many years but sold it when I switched to a Pi. At some stage I bought a replacement power supply (PowerPax 85-2251) to have handy 'just in case'. Anyway, it's here and still wrapped. Can pop it in the post for anyone in UK needing one. PM me if interested
    I don't need any money for it, just like to see it used. Anyone?

    Thanks to this thread, I was able to find and order a replacement supply for my Transporter, and it has it's displays again! Yay! On the theory, that my second transporter is the same age as the first, I bought two, and now have a backup. Thanks for posting the link. Cheers, Dave
