Help needed sourcing parts for Optoma RD65 RPTV

Hi, I'm hoping someone out there might have the answer to getting my tv going again for a little longer. Bought around September 2005 it's not a young one but I'd be really stretched to replace it at the moment. The problems are finding any service documents and finding any parts. A friend of mine who had been a tv engineer and still works in a technical capacity has tracked the fault down to the power supply board but these seem to be like hens teeth. Without the manual, testing is just guesswork. I've done a lot of searching on the 'net and thought I'd found a power supply board in Canada. I ordered it and paid for it, waited a couple of weeks only to get an email to say they no longer supplied them. Frustrating. If anyone has some information on sourcing parts, information, old sets I could cannibalise (I believe the RD50 used the same internals) I'd be very grateful. This beast is like part of the family.

Cheers guys.
