I purchased this unfortunently it wasnt packaged well and got damaged I'm running out of time to replace it so I'm looking at repairing it.  The damage is mainly to the 12volt 200mA transformer which has been half ripped off the PCB mount so the copper connectors are broken and its so small even with tweezers i couldnt solder it if I tried.

Soo.. I need to get another 12volt 200mA transformer preferably PCB Mount (although Id take anything!) anyone know what/where I can get one? I've tried jaycar's website but couldnt spot anything.  Also anyone know if you get much tolerance level with transformers (ie can I get a slightly different MA and still be alright?)

You could get one of those transformers for toys (e.g. rechargers) and then chop off the male plug and wire it in (if it has to go on a PCB)

It should be easy to find a 12v one, but harder for a suitable current rating.

You can find some on TradeMe - I found one here for a PCB one.
