You can always get a second opinion from another tech and a bid before you decide. I repaired TVs for over 30 years and replacing a fly back is not a hard job. But you should consider the age of your unit as other parts also ware out, such as the projection tubes Red, Green, and Blue, These have a limited life span and are costly to replace. If your screen starts to get a color becoming predominate while viewing a black and white image or if the picture starts getting a silvery Hugh on a bright scene that could also be a aging problem. TV only last so long then need repair or replacing.

A flyback transformer is one of the more expensive components in a projection TV. If there is no clear reason, such as a known power surge, you could well replace the flyback transformer again soon because the root problem was elsewhere.
An OEM transformer is not necessary but you might have trouble convincing an authorized factory service technician to use anything but the original manufacturer's parts.
As with many of today's electronic devices, if it is more than a year or two old, you will find the new products cheaper and with more features. The next generation of projection TVs will use lasers and scanning will be done with optically controlled micro-mirrors - no flyback transformer required.

Picture on Samsung TXL2791F gets smaller after a few minuets


The horizontal output transistor that drives the flyback transformer overheats now. There might be other reasons too for this fault. If the flyback transformer has any internal winding short, this transistor will overheat.
Just replace the horizontal output transistor. Check its heat. If the newly replaced transistor too overheats, replace the flyback transformer.

Tv dont come on but have a clicking noise, the led blinks with a click


I have a Samsung 32" that did the same thing a few weeks ago and I am still trying to fix it. The problem is the Main Flyback Transformer is blow with an open circuit in the Primary Winding that means you'll get no Picture. I also found the Power Transistor that feeds this Flyback Transformer was also shorted between terminals Collector Base Emitter(CBE). I bought a replacement Flyback but didn't work so now I need to get the Original part & it's not easy to find. Always use Original Components NOT replacements. Simply put if you're not technical I suggest take the TV to your nearest repair agent but be prepaired to pay for it. Cost of Flyback around US$50 & $10 for Transistor & if you find an honest repairman it should cost around $150 to repair otherwise it's not worth it. Good luck

Could be one of three things the yokes, the flyback transformer or the picture tubes, all will be a costly repair. If it was mine I would invest the money in a new one.

I was told tthat the flyback is bad on my toshiba tv model #CF36G40 can i replace the flyback myself? Is there any adjustments that need to be made after replacement?


Stay the hell away from a flyback. It will knock you clear across the room! The only thing I look for in a tv is an internal fuse, and then I look very carefully. If I don't find a fuse, I toss it.

It is possible to repair it yourself. Let me caution you though. There are a number of generic manufacturers that sell replacement flyback transformers at less $$ than the original. The shop is most likety using the factory original which runs in the $75 range. Figuring on a typical labor rate of $125 for a 32" set gets you to the $200 figure. Realize also, that the $200 will include any other supportive parts that may be required in all probability as well as at least a 90 day guarantee.

Pincushion problem


My thoughts would be, was it a Sony OEM transformer or a generic type? If the latter, that is probably a likely suspect. Another thing would be misplaced wires or switches that could have been accidently moved while replacing the transformer. I have had some of these sets that had no high voltage, and all it turned out to be was a broken solder connection on one of the pins going to the flyback transformer. Usually, if the flyback is bad, the Horizontal output transistor would be also defective. It's also possible that in the process of removing the old flyback (fun job wasn't it?) you may have cracked one or more of the circuit traces in that area of the PC board.

Toshiba 35A44 - Dark picture on all channels and DVD's


for this brightness problem actually came out from flyback transformer...so, before you spend and waste your money, try to adjust at back of your tv first. But if you aren't an expert, better ask technician to do because that transformer supply a very high voltage....there's two adjustment point at flyback transformer, one point for focus and the other one for brightness! try first...
