broken halogen mr16 recessed - need to replace

Hi - I have several MR16 halogen recessed lights in my basement. Every one is broken by now. I have purchase new bulbs, tried LED bulbs, but no luck. One will turn on for a couple seconds, then turn off, but most don't do anything (i just hear a low hum from the transformer). They are 4 inch recessed 12v, 50w and i attached picture of what i have.

Since they seem to be broken, should i just replace the whole thing with a LED fixture? Or would a retrofit kit work - or are there potentially issues with the current fixture that will still be an issue? Just want to have to fix it once, so if that means a whole new fixture, so be it.

Appreciate the help.
