Flyback Transformer replacement instructions?

The flyback transformer went in my RCA D527DYX1.


Does anyone have detailed instructions on  how I can replace this myself?


I know what it is, but it looks like it maybe clips into place, but not sure, I don't want to damage my TV. Figured instructions would do the trick.


I am a computer engineering tech and have worked on CRT monitors, etc. So I understand high voltage safety etc. :)


Please help. :(

    I have not found out the procedure yet, but it looks like there are plastic clips on the flyback that hold it tight to the circuit board.  I'm thinking that the pins soldered to the cb probably slide into the flyback freely, but not certain.  A flyback is between 50-80$ for this tv, but I'm afraid to damage the cb if I try to remove it without confermation that it just clips into place.

    I have a Zenith z46z70vb rear projection TV. It started arching between the large red wire with a black boot and what I believe is the anode of the flyback transfomer. I put more silicon around the anode and it quit arching but now I have sound but no picture. None of the the 3 bulbs come on. When I used a needle nose pliers to remove the large red wire with the black boot it would not come out . I have destroyed the boot and lt still will not come out. Befrore I destroy this thing should I try to replace the flyback and red cable. Is there a way to check this circuit or could something else be causing my problem? Please help with pictures if possible. Thanks Dan.

RCA D52W20TV won't power up

If you know how to solder/desolder, no it isnt. Slinteriors on this website knows how. His address is [email protected]. he has parts and instructions on how to do it. I just replaced the flyback and cp150. Got the parts from him, and also got instructions on how to get out the circuitboard. Didnt trust myself to do it, so I took the board into a local computer repair guy who does soldering. He got the new ones on and tv is working fine now.

36" RCA- loud whine/squeal when it is plugged in, otherwise no power.

The HOT Hortz output transistor has gone home, 99% of the time from a faulty IVHT (Flyback Transformer), very common on the ctc187cl* chassis. The factory Flyback is no longer available, I have had problems finding an aftermarket one to replace it with.

The HOT is a BUH517, but you can also use a 2SD5129. It is the transistor mounted on the siler heat sink with a metal clip rather than a screw, just in front of the flyback.....

If you replace just the HOT, most of the time you will get a rapid arc (27,000volts - BE CAREFUL!!!) from the lower (yoke) post on the flyback. If the flyback is shorted, It may also just burn out the HOT and go right back to "squealing"....

Good luck finding the flyback!!!

No picture, sound ok.

When you change the flyback and the HOT you are supose to replace a small capacitor that came with the flyback and also the small coil l401 that connects the hot base to the horiz. driver transformer secondary is supose to be taken out, the leads scrapped off of insulation and resoldered into place.
