Answers :

You can try replacing the cap inside the power supply but most of the time when a cap goes its because theres a bigger problem inside the power supply. Get a new one cause to troubleshoot a power supply would take much more time to get it fixed (and there could be other underlying problems).

Also getting a new power supply entitles you to warranty that comes with it so if it craps out on you in a certain period of time, you can get it replaced.
