I don't seem to be able to get power through my flyback transformer (or actually, I'm not sure what the power isnt going through.)
I used copper wire for the primary windings (Do I HAVE to use magnet wire for this to work? - If so I understand what my problem is.)
And slightly smaller red copper wire for the secondary windings.
I am using this http://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/16901/PHILIPS/BU2520DF.html transistor
But also have a few others I could use. Have tried another one, (can't recall the name at the moment, but had the exact same problem.)
I have tried to switch the cables around etc like suggested in http://www.instructables.com/id/2n3055-flyback-transformer-driver-for-beginners/?ALLSTEPS
Also, I am unable to hear any high pitched noise.
I am currently using a 12v car battery. (And it has power on it, at least enough to run a rather big DC motor.)
As you can see on the pictures, my ability to connect things neat and clean is non-existent. - And I do apologize about that.
And the pictures are horrible, as I'm not quite sure what you might want pictures of.
I'm not quite sure what else I can ask.. I have tried another source of power. And it has the exact same problem.
The flyback transformer is from a CRT PC monitor. Same with the transistor.
I've also tried another transistor that I got from a PSU for a computer. and it still has the same problem.
I have checked the cables and I know that there can go current through them, tried it in another circut.
I was also wondering if the resistance could be broken. At this moment I don't have a multimeter close by so I don't know how to test it.
I used copper wire for the primary windings (15 windings)
And Red copper wire (If this has another name and my ignorance is shining through, I am sorry.) for the feedback windings (11 windings)
Are the windings just completely wrong?
My feedback wire is slightly thinner than my primary wire as well.
Check the comments for picture of circuit diagram and a look-a-like of my primary winding copper cable.
And I hope I can get other replies than "Buy a multimeter you silly git!" - Yes. I will, eventually.
If required, I can upload the pictures to another host so you can view them in a much higher resolution.
Edit : Added a few more hopefully helpful pictures, since the first ones were utter crap.
Please let me know if there is anything else I need to get better pictures of.
Also, I removed the on / off button from the circuit now as one can see on the latest added pictures.
Thanks for your attention.
