Hi Their. you can use the following:

650W non-redundant or 675W hot-plug redundant power.

I've had very good luck with:  http://www.serversupply.com in purchasing server power supplies that are no longer available from the manufacturer.  The ones I have got were always NOS (new old stock).

We have also purchased hardware from serversupply with no issues.  You could also try going through Dell.  I would think they would still have the powersupply for the 1800.

Because of your location, Dell's support and parts availability will not be what it would be in the U.S., but finding parts should not be a big deal.  You can't use just any power supply, as they are a special shape and have special connectors unique to the 1800's design.  A quick Google search should get you some place where you can purchase the right one.  http://impactcomputers.com and http://serversupply.com are both good places that have many Dell parts in stock.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

in doing a little research, the Poweredge 1800 shipped two different power suppiles, aside from the redundant/non-redundant variations.  They came with either a 650 watt or a 670 watt.  If you could provide the part number from the Power supply that works appropriately, we could more easily assist you in obtaining one.

Assuming then that you have a non-redundant power supply ...
Assuming you have used a power supply that has all the required power connectors needed for the 1800, I can't give you a good reason why it wouldn't work.  As far as recommending and/or confirming power supplies ... nobody can really recommend a non-Dell power supply that will work, unless they have successfully done it.  The only part I can recommend without doubt that it will work are these:

I think, after the discussion in this thread, that #35167765 is the correct response.

Just curious as to why 35167765 wouldn't be correct.  His question was not one of whether a PSU would fix his issue, but simply which were compatible.  The only guaranteed compatible parts are Dell parts, which was the answer given, with links to those parts.
