Horz. Output Transformer for a GE Mod#46GW945

Where can I get the following part
GE Mod. 46GW945YX1
Part # 215541
The numbers on the old Part are 30949060 M9813
Problem was shorted Flyback & Horiz output transister
The voltage on the horizontal output transistor collector 19v to high
spec says with color bars the Collector = 140v I measured 159.3v
also the Base = -0.07v I measured -0.026v Scope wave form should be
15v @10us I measured 12v@10us.
Removed Horz Output transformer secondary & meas. R. Should be 0.2ohms. I measured 0.1ohms
LOOKS Like transformer has a shorted winding !!
Thanks AL BD,WI

MOST likely a bad high voltage transformer or a Glycol leak both of which were common in this set and the parts for this set are nearly impossible to find (I think by the model number set is newer than 92).

I liked these sets but I would not invest big money to fix one this old.

Tv turns off immediately after i try to turn it on

I know this set--worked on a lot of them when they were first new---THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM is the high voltage transformer fails--usually a dead set.

As you look from the back of the set it is a tan colored part about the size of your fist (located to the right side of the board on the far left--it has a large red wire coming out of the top of it)--if you hear a squeeking noise or not--it is the most common part to fail in this set.....RCA PART NUMBER IS : 239111---PART is no longer available from RCA but if you Google it on the internet---there are several places that have a replacement part for less than 15 dollars---

The way I used to attack this was to unsolder the transformer and try to turn set on--if it comes on it will not have a picture but if it does not shut down--you know either the transformer is bad or something right around it---note---I have seen over 100 of these sets with this part bad--number one part to fail in this set.

Let me know if you need any help or assistance.

Regards, SD TECH

After pushing the power button on there a chirping noise coming from the back of the tv and doesn't turn on.

hi, the chirping noise is either the switch mode transformer or the flyback transformer, more likely the flyback as thomson built sets are infamous for them failing, nothing you can do you`ll have to call a tech to verify which has failed, not a major repair job, gl, video-tek
