Did you catch this post?  I think that's a compatible driver zooming in on your other pics of drivers...

Yup, thank you. I've ordered it and will see when it gets here

Just saw this post... From your pic, your AC power adapter is constant current so it varies it's output voltage to provide constant 1.27A.  The link from Amazon is a constant voltage power adapter, so it have a constant DC output voltage of 48V but various the current up to 1.25A.  So unless your LED just happened to need 48V at 1.27A, it will not work.

Either find/buy a constant current power adaptor with the specs required, or you can MacGyver it with the 48V constant voltage power adaptor from Amazon then add/design a DC to DV constant current converter.

Please be careful taking apart AC power adapters.  Even DC at 48V can be dangerous.

I agree with previous comment that it's probably not worth fixing.
