I think you can use multiple PSUs, if you can get hold of them.  I've 
done this for intel compatible motherboards, at least.  Add a few 
paperclips and you are cooking (hopefully not literally).

To get it repaired, try the usual cavalcade of TV and video repair 
shops.  A competent tech should be able to spot the burnt component and 
replace it (I'm pretty sure at least on VCR I had had a switchmode PSU).
