Driving a CRT, testing a flyback transformer Answered
I have taken apart an old color crt monitor which was not working and I don't know how I could reuse the crt from it, I have a feeling it still works and that the problem was the flyback transformer, and would NOT like to throw away the crt. I would like to know if anyone knows how to drive a crt, without having to do something TOO complicated, I will be happy with very minimal results such as just a blue color being displayed, or such, as long as something gets to appear on the screen. Then I can use the x and y axis controls (the little plastic carrier on the neck of the crt) to control the image sizes. I heard that you have to find out which pins of the crt are for the filament and provide around 6V to it, but how do you find this out? Also if someone knows how I can test the flyback to make sure that is the problem, it would be helpful. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
P.S. Attached is a picture of the crt.
