The part with teh large red wire out of the top is as Azkeyz indicates the "flyback" transformer. This is the part that produces the high voltages required for the picture tube to function. As indicated, that wire conducts extremely high voltage that can injure anyone in contact with it. If there is sparking at the transformer end, then the part is beginning to fail. The sparking is due to a connection getting loose. The high voltage "jumps" the gap creating the sparking. This will only get worse. If the sparking is at the picture tube end, this can be fixed cheaply by carefully turning the rubber cap back and forth. Under that cap is a metal clip that can sometimes get a little dirt on it preventing good contact. That too will cause a spark.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL when attempting to work within the set. Even with the set unplugged, there is still a large amount of high voltage present. Think of the picture tube as a very large battery. THe high voltage remains for a very long time.

Seriously, the main power supply has failed, and requires service. You are probably well past the warranty period, but check with the TV's service center - that information should be in the documents that came with the TV.

Can't get the remote to work


Try pressing the TV button on the Prima remote to make it work on the TV. It should work on the Prima Tv without new codes. Codes would be needed for your cable box.
Consider calling Prima at 866-447-7462 for the codes. They should have a website for the codes or email you the codes for free.

PS Please rate me if this helps.
