TIP3055 is Bad
If you have read my previous post about getting the TIP3055 as substitution, i guess you have to put on hold for this replacement. Read from this member feedback about using the TIP3055 as substitution for C5707 transistor
“The TIP3055 is not a safe subsitute for the 2sc5707. It will work, but runs extremely hot, and will eventually catch fire unless adequately cooled in the vast majority of CCFL inverter circuits that it will operate in. There’s a reason why cheap general purpose transistors don’t wind up being used in place of specialised models, and it’s reasonable to say that “fire hazard” is one of them!”
Since he already tested on this transistor, i guess the best for you is still to get the original part number. If you would like to order online for this C5707 transistor then please visit Bluestar Online dot com.
