Flyback transformer on television

My wife could hear cracking comming out of the tv,but ignored it untill it got too bad and eventually unplugged it. i pulled the back off and tried it again,the flyback transformer had a hole burned in the casing and was arcing to the top of the transformer,so bieng mr fixit i got some glue and filled the hole,now the arcing has stopped but when i turned it back on the screen has only a single white line across it.i have located a flyback transformer,but now im wondering if a new flyback transformer will fix it ,or if this has damaged something else. i dont know too much about this stuff and would greatly appreciate any help.thanks

Re: flyback transformer on television

I beleive something in the vertical circuit got damaged. Check resisters to see if they are burned and locate the vertical IC has about 8 to 10 pins. It stands up on the board and all the pins connect into the board in a straight line. If you can't do this, take the set in for service. Get the fly back replaced and the vertical section fixed.

Re: flyback transformer on television

Single white line across screen mean a vertical colapse. So you will need the vertical output and maybe a cap around 100uf@50v.

Noisy flyback transformer tcl CRT TV model 14F1

They often begin buzzing when the oil inside them gets old or evaporates from a cracked housing. It needs replacing however be very careful. Flyback have 50000 to 100000 volts in them even when the tv is off. There is a safety discharge procedure however if you are not familiar with replacing a flyback do not attempt it yourself. FLYBACK TRANSFORMERS CAN SEVERLY INJURE OR KILL YOU.

My 26" 1997 Sharp T.V. model #25H-M60 turns off by itself and won't turn back part of the time.

First thing if you are able is to unplug set and remove rear cover (lay set face down on a padded surface).

entire main board should be able to be seen or released so it slides out--take a very careful look at flyback and rest of board for any cracked or bad solder connections.

One bad connection (age) can cause this.

I have a sony 32'' I think. model # KV-32FS10, serial #8047927, made Jan 2000. During a move, the tv was dropped and now when you press the power, your hear the click, the red click light flashes...

It sounds like that in the drop you may have cracked the main PCB. The PCB's usually crack around the heaviest part of the PCB. Probably around the flyback transformer.

I think you have a bad flyback transformer and shorted horizontal output transistor. The flyback (high voltage) transformer shorted and caused the transistor to short. You need to get a tech to check it for you and get an estimate. The noise you hear is the power supply singing telling you that it has a short on it's load. Stargazer

Check for shorted base-collector junction on horizontal output transistor designator Q14401. Also coil L14401 going to base of transistor needs to be desoldered, scrape ends, resoldered. If horizontal transistor is shorted, real possible flyback transformer bad.
