While the tv was on it just started arcing out of the rear lower right rear of the tv (looking from the front), opposite side of the plug. I was told it was a high voltage transformer? it has two adjustment ports on the back, one says focus, its a square box with two leads out the top and has a large magnet around it, there is a small hole in the side, looks burnt, and when you plug it in it arcs to the magnet. I was told 600.00+ but they really want to sell me a new set. Any help?

Re: sparks arcing from rear of tv
Wow they are charging you alot for this repair my friend. Go to this link and you will see! The High Voltage transformer, also known as a flyback only cost 50.00 Bucks!http://www.partstore.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductSKU=2187762&ProductType=PART&ModelID=420798 I would get the part and let someone replace it If you have no soldering and or TV repair experience, as this is a dangerous place to be experimenting with if you do not know the safety issues involved. Good Luck

That could be a number of things that would make that noise, Have you removed the front panel screen in front on bottom and try turn TV on Look for Spark? Bad anode button on one of the tubes can cause that, bad flyback transfomer.Have you removed back and look to see if arc is coming from the FBT Mounted on Deflection board. First board on the left is the deflection board.
Common problem on this tv, ceramic capacitor .087uf 1600V.
Take out the chassis,and inspect under fly bac area, you will se a burn area; replace thsi ceramic capacitor. for parts. go to:

Can be 1 of 2 things. 1st the red tube just needs the voltage to it turned down. In the front of TV (you have to remove the lower front half of TV to access it) is a plastic square with 6 knobs. The from left to right top knobs control focus for blue,green red. The bottom knobs control voltage to each tube in same order (so lower right knob for red) turn SLOWLY to left to reduce voltage until excessive red and lines go away. If you over turn left or right set will turn off. If that does not fix it or if lines reappear then option 2 is that red picture tube is failing outright and needs replacement.
