When my power supply blew back in March of this year, I followed the instructions in order to get a factory replacement. Six months later, I still have not received a replacement. What should I do in order to get a replacement?

Are you using the factory wiring harness? If so, there are 2 fuses. If not, it is easy and common to have the red + and black - wires in the wrong order. Really! Even after 20 years of working on them, it happens. Other than that, if you have another harness, or a couple of wires, hook them up when trying to program. Make certain the power supply can handle the amperage draw. I used a 5 amp power supply once, blew a fuse on the radio, then the power supply. Then I'd start looking at input diodes.
To be honest it probably is not cost effictive to repair any but the most expensive MD decks.
I'd suggest you look for a working twin to yours on ebay and buy it.
I spent $350 to get a high end MD deck repaired and the repair only lasted six months. This is even more true with portables.
Watch out for any portable with odd rechargable batteries, there are several legendary protables which cannot be used as the batteries have not been made in years. Replacements if found are overly expensive and probably old, used replacements have little life left in them.
The Power Supplies for the MP600 burn out over time. They are easy to buy and replace:
My MP600 Power supply died as well. Web searches (including Canon) turned up nothing. Called Canon. To order power supply from Canon, call: 866-481-2569 (credit card over the phone, no on-line interface). $34.49 with tax and delivery.
Note: the power supply has black tabs the you push away from the grey power supply case. One tab in front and one in back. The grey power supply box pulls right out of the printer. The internal connector (six colored wires) pulls straight out (there is no release tab/catch). Use small screwdriver or needle nose plyers to carefully remove. Pull/pry the female white nylon connector. Do not pull on the wires.
You will need to open it up, first thing to look will capacitors int ehpower supply, main AC fuse. http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Please verify if it is only six month old, otherwise, take it back to where you get it from.
A capacitor shorted (popped) in the power supply then the fuse blew (went black) unplug TV, remove back cover, look for power supply; follow cord to it; find small silver can with top bubbled (bad)
unsolder/replace; replace fuse. plug in turn on.
