Still working

I finally found a used power supply and my 5679W is up and running. I wonder if anyone else has a working tv or am I the last of the Mohicans.

Still have mine running as the downstairs family room TV. Still looks good, but I've replaced the Power Supply and have a couple other parts 'stocked' for just in case. Bet there aren't too many left running.....

Mine is still working...have had 2 repairs so far that were still under extended warranty. That has ended. New power supply and new light engine.
Unfortunately, it seems my power supply is going again. 2 or 3 times now my screen goes black, then I hear the start up chime and the picture comes back. It's like the set is turning off, and then back on by itself.
Anyone experience anything like this?

I think my set is on its last legs.

On occasion the screen goes completely black and comes back after few seconds.

I'm guessing the LED light engine is going bad, but thought I would check in to see if anyone had any cheap fixes I should look into. I had the it replaced about 5 years ago.

Otherwise I'll be getting a new TV for Black Friday.

Yes, this set is old, but has worked great for 8 years, picture is still great. I replaced the power supply capacitors with high temp ones several years ago and no more problems, however I am having sound issues with my 5679, very raspy audio, any one else ever experience this or know the fix?
