After researching this subject in an admittedly mad panic I'd already decided that a new PSU would be next on my shopping list. Like I said though, it'll be a little while still before I can manage it (pesky kids and their insistence on being fed), but as long as the Phantom holds out for another couple months I'll be happy.
Of course now that I've committed that statement to text I fully expect the Phantom to go WHOOMF the first time I turn it on. :P
