Replacing The B+ Coil With A Wire?

By on February 10, 2010

crt monitors

I believe CRT Monitor repairers came across B+ coil in the circuit. The function of  the B+ circuit (boost circuit) is to boost the Dc voltage from the SMPS so that it can be channeled it to the flyback transformer primary winding. The B+ voltage is required to support different resolution in the Monitor. That means the B+ voltage will vary if the display resolution change. If the B+ coil burnt the only way is to replace it with a new coil or you rewind it on your own. The question is can we replace the Burnt B+ coil with a single wire?

The answer is No because the function between a coil and a wire is different. The function of the B+ coil is to store current and the wire is to act as a path for the Dc voltage to flow through. In other words, without B+ coil  there will be no current be transferred to the B+ capacitor in the B+ circuit thus  the voltage can’t be boosted. If the B+ voltage is not boosted then the flyback primary winding would not get what it want (flyback needs a higher DC voltage) thus the high voltage generated would be low-may in the range from 12 to 15 Kvdc only.

Because of this situation, the display will become small vertically (may be 6 to 8 inches wide) and in some cases the display curve inwards (squeezed in the right and left side). Hope that in the future, if any B+ coil burn, please do not put a wire to replace it.

    HI Shreedar,

    Since my books are ebooks thus you will not find it from any bookstore. You have to buy it from the website using credit card or you can email me at jestineyong(at)electronicrepairguide.com for alternative payment

    HI Jestine,
    first i appreciate your Great site,
    I have Dell E773c CRT 17" Monitor,
    The problem is that the monitor power supply is ok and power LED is on and yesterday it show a blured Circle in center of screen but now there is no display..
    I believe it makes EHT Volts.
    Can you please advice or let me know where i get the scematic diagram or service manual

    Hi Jestine,
    I have made by china 17" CRT Monitor named "ORANGE" . It's circuit same as 17" Flat Samsung Monitor . This Monitor's Problem is - It's Brightness is very Low . I changed it's Flyback Transformer but no result . Then I changed it's Base Circuit also but the same result .

    Is it the problem of B+ Coil of this monitor ? Can you give me some advice to get rid of this problem .....

    Thanks

    HI Galib,

    If the heater voltage, g2 and g1 voltage are normal then the picture tube already weak and need to be replaced.

      HI Xerxes,

      The coil/inductor is along the B+ circuit (in-series) thus it is a B+ coil.
