Question by knektek | last reply
I have an urge to play with high voltage. Maybe a Jacobs' Ladder, maybe a plasma speaker, maybe just make sparks and burn myself. Does the make / model of flyback transformer matter? Or do they all connect the same way? For instance, would you recommend this model?
Question by Kiteman | last reply
I really want a old flyback transformer for my high voltage projects, but I don't know where to get one. I tried to get one from my local TV repair shop, but they did not have any, only new modern flyback transformers and I don't want that kind of transformer. So if you have any old functional flyback transformers that you don't want anymore, I would really want to buy them from you, and I will pay for the postage price. I will buy modern flyback transformers if you are trying to give it away for a very cheap price or for free (I will still pay for the postage price). Please respond to me if you live in UK, if you don't live in UK, please don't respond to me because I cannot afford such high postage (shipping) bill.

I was looking at this page on flybacks, and I was reading about the transistors, when I realized that I don't know anything about picking transistors out. I'm an electronics noob, what can I say. Would these work? The flyback is going to be from an OLD computer monitor. I need help.

I have recently dismantled an old CRT monitor i have had lying around for ages to get the flyback transformer. I have been trying to get the correct pins to using methods found on the internet none of which have seemed to work i have found what should be the primary coil and have applied the current and placed the high voltage output in front of each pin to try and find the high voltage ground, this has not worked so i have applied the current to all of the pins in every combination and still i am unable to get it to work. Please help me.

Hi. I am trying to build a Tesla Coil, and there are few thins I'd like to know. First, I built this PWM (made a few modifications, IRF530 MOSFET and 10nF ceramic caps instead) and connected it to a self wound primary of my fuh29A001V flyback, and it works perfectly, sparks and stuff. Can this power my Tesla Coil? Next, if it can work, how do I calculate capacitance needed for my tank capacitor? Miloš
Question by Mvtnns
I've been kicking myself for months now trying to get my flybacks to operate. It seems that no matter what driver I build, or how carefully I assemble it, the only thing I get is silence. Even the simple 2n3055 driver does not work for me. I've checked the transistors, they appear to be fine. I have no idea what to do. Any ideas?

I am having problems with the flyback transformer. For primer on where I am at, following the tutorial to locate the 0v pin the voltage was win the specified range. The flyback is from a old monitor that was monochrome but was still working. No datasheet could be obtained. 10 pins if it matters. I am following the struct on using the single transistor driver. Specifically a 2n3055 from radio shack. Lets pretend i wouldn't waste your time if i didn't triple quadruple check the wiring first. using 24v dc power supply schematic and page i based my driver on. i am not getting the high pitched noise from the flyback. i have 5w 220 resistor and a 5w 27 resistor . my resistance ratio is important. correct? since there is a voltage divider there. i know its vague but can someone give me some direction to work out my problems

Hello, I'd like to request someone to share their knowledge about their "flyback" knowledge or experiences with me since I'm having trouble finding the primary coil pins with my flyback transformer. I'm constructing my own HV power supply and I decided to go through this tutorial. I've read much on the web and found the 0v output pin of my flyback. The problem is .. I couldn't find the primary and secondary since I'm using an analog multimeter and the tutorials on the web are all digital.. When I test the pins with my multimeter set to ohm range of x1, I do not get a pair of 1 ohm pins but instead I got the result of "Continuity" when I test on following pins, they seems to be connected but none of the pins show to 1 ohm.. and thus I've adjust the Ohm Adjustment. The results are Continuity 1 : 1,2,6,8 Continuity 2 : 3,4,7,10 No Continuity: 5,9 Pin no 5 is 0v output.. I've attached the pin number diagram at photos... my drawing and actual pins.. Have you got any idea to find out the primary coil? I've also attach my driver from CFL.. Thanks
Topic by _π | last reply
Hello, I am confused with this flyback transformer I have. I have a pulsed DC input on the primary coil (pulses from 0 to 15V) and that creates high voltage in the secondary coil. When I connect that input in the opposite direction (wrong polarity) I don't get high voltage any more. The possible explanation for this is that the primary coil has a diode in series with it. Now, I'm confused by this because I tested if there actually Was a diode in there (by connecting a DC supply and a DC motor, in series with the coil) and the motor always works! (also tested with a halogen light) I put the coil in series with the motor to test if there is a diode inside. If there would be one inside, the motor should not work in one of the two cases, when I switch the pins of the primary coil. So, as the results of the test tell me: there is no diode in series with the primary coil. could it be possible that there is a diode in parallel with the primary coil? If that's not possible, how come the flyback is not working when I connect the polarity incorrectly? Could someone please help me out with this? Thanks, Electorials

Question by Blake | last reply
I've been reading up on Jacob ladders and tesla coils for a while now, and decided to try to make a Jacob ladder (the tesla coil just looks scary and advanced) I've taken a part an old CRT. And I was wondering if you could tell me if it looks usable. I'm wondering slightly if I broke it when I removed it from the 'plate' it was stuck in. Pictures will show what I mean. Sorry about the bad focus on the pictures. Taken with a phone, and it was slightly too dark for it to be able to take good pictures. The brown cables looks like it's just fast in the flyback transformer, but I did not remove it. I tried to get a good picture of the text that was on in case it means anything to anyone. Also, what I can gather by looking at this is that the red cable is the high voltage cable, and the low(er) voltage cable is either the grey, or white one. - Is that correct? Thank you very much for your attention, and thanks for any replies. And this site is amazing. I'm just amazed at how creative people are. Oh, and please let me know if I posted this in the wrong category Zaek.

I want to know as well as I would want to build a multiplier for the flyback. I know mine isn't the old AC type but the DST should be a DC pulsed ...The flyback I have just looks like these typoical modern DST ones here: http://www.imagebam.com/image/b88cbf268367234 . Your help would be tremendously relieving for me. I have been struggling to find out for a while now... Thanks a lot

Question by danydady | last reply
While working and revising my flyback driver design, I had one of the 1N4148 diodes that I was using as protection get cooked! (it seemed to fail short circuit) I have not tested to see if the MOSFET survived yet. Obviously the diode needs to react fast and handle avalanching energy well. Any suggestions? are some beefy schottky diodes suitable? Also, does making any ordinary diode go into that avalanche or zener reverse breakdown region cause it to potentially lock up and conduct for a period longer than the EMF spikes I'm dealing with? Or with any sort of hysteresis (like when using neon lamps)? Originally my wimpy glass 1N4148 diodes was wired in parallel directly across the MOSFET drain and source reverse biased. However, carefully examining this tesla coil schematic,it appears that there is both a forward biased diode in series with the MOSFETs, and another reverse biased diode(s) in parallel across the MOSFET & diode. It does not look like a bad idea given one the reverse biased diodes can shunt EMF spikes that are too large while the other isolates them from the MOSFET. My only concern is how lossy that would be at 12V operation.

Ts been a while that i have tryed to make a nice arc from my 25 watt cfl driver, the only pin on the cfl that are working are the pin 1 and 4, i i have attempted to connect the pin 1 and 2 toguether and 3 and 4 toguether, i connected both of the mix on the flyback and i could get a huge arc, but i plugged it like 5 sec, and i stopped touching the HV output with the 0v ground for like 2 sec then my cfl has exploded like a bomb, there was lound noise, and made a hole in my table. so im not gonna try that again. Anyway i can only get 0.5 cm arc from the flyback, and i dont know what to do to make it larger, i know that the 25w cfl can do better. Any suggestion? Sorry for my bad english.

Hi, I made a flyback driver from a 555 timer 2 days ago and now its not working. I think the flyback broke but i dont know. I ran the driver with 6 volts at first but got tired of the 1 cm sparks so I used 12 volts instead and it stopped working. I left it alone for a while, and when i tested it again, it worked again. Now its not working again and i think the flyback broke this time but im not sure.
