Need a flyback transformer

This part rarely fails in this set so let me know if sweep transistor is shorted or what?

To answer: Contact JVC with the correct model number and try to get the part number---nothing JVC will be cheap but with the actual part number you can Google to see if available.

I would also suggest checking someone like Suburban Electronics who sells a lot of these parts---online catalog and or phone.

What do the fuses look like in a samsung 42 in lcd tv

Fuses for electronics like TVs, DVD players etc. are typically inside the device. Only qualified or experienced individuals should consider opening up the case of electronic devices due to the risk or electric shock or electrocution. It sounds like you should probably consider taking the TV in to a local TV or electronics repair facility.

TV will not turn on seems to not have power.

If the TV "seems to not have power" then I assume that no lights are on or blinking, and that no noise is made by the television at all. This is most likely a power supply issue or a power chip issue. If you know anyone who able to solder or has working knowledge of electronics boards this could be a relatively cheap fix ($30+ in parts). Otherwise, you may be paying hundreds from a TV repair shop.

Cracked screen

Although your question is not clear AT ALL :) I am assuming you have a handheld with a broken screen. Theres 2 ways to fix this. 1. take it to a professional and have it fixed. 2. Buy a broken one with a good screen for cheap and fix it or have somebody that knows basic electronics fix it. Be careful not to destroy your handheld with static electricity. Lay parts on cardboard or ESD bags/mats to reduce ESD damage. I hope this helps.

My remote is not working on this telly but is on another one

Assuming the 2 TV's are the same model, and you are the same distance and angle from each well testing, also your battery's are good.
It would mean the IR (infrared) receiver module in the TV is bad.
Cheap fix if you take the TV some where to be fixed. If you know someone who is comfortable taking the TV apart, you get the module cheap online (under $10) and would be simple to replace.

I have a DAV-X1 Home Theatre System. Works fine except I can't open the DVD tray anymore it says DEST ERROR. I read that you said that it is the IC in the processor board. You need the exact model #....

Well, lets try something real simple before we go deep. In some models of Sony, there is a small hole beneath the dvd drive. If you have such a hole, insert a small pin into that hole. Now push the eject button and then push the pin well into that hole. Wait for about 2 seconds and see if the tray comes out. If that hole does not exist in your model, then try this. Push the eject button and tap HARD above the dvd tray. Try this a few times, and you will see the tray pushing out. Best wishes.

Mine stereo will not turn on when i plug it in.

A blown fuse is a result of a failed component it electronic circuits. Replacing the fuse wont do no good. I fix television, and I wish I could show you how, but it has too many terminology, and rquires at least basic electronic understanding. Electronic device are the only thing a really good handy man can't fix. They are extremely complicated.

It is helpful if you mention anything you have tried already.
Amazingly, dead batteries are one of the most common problems with 'nothing happens.'
For example; 'I changed the remote batteries and tried turning it on with the buttons on the set.
Nothing works.'
Or; 'We had an electrical storm and since then the TV doesn't work.'

Because our sets have become so complex internally, sometimes pulling the AC plug and letting the thing sit ignored for an hour or two, lets the electronics untangle itself.
