Question about Recoton Advent Advent HT3251A TV
32” high definition t.v., model listed above. It was unused for at least a year, and when we energized the set, a light spark developed at the rear right corner of the set. I had opened the cabinet to see what might have happened, surmsing it may have been a fuseable link or something. It is the last component on the right rear of the circuit board assembly. I believe there are two wires going to different parts of the unit, and a line, roughly a ¼” in diameter that goes directly to the tube. There is a little tape band around this component with what looks like a metal retention band, and the sparking appears to be generating from that component. I am trying to identify the component, and see if it is in fact replaceable. Can you help me since I do not possess a schematic? Thanks.

The sparks could be generated due to a loose connection.
I would suggest to try to secure that wire(s) and see if the sparks go away, if they do; you will need to resolder that connection.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
