Default Re: Bush TV24 picture fade

What I had done was to tighten the clamp holding the two halves of the ferrite core to much, loosening the clamp so that the copper springs exerted less pressure on the core cured the problem. Presumably the core has to vibrate at 15625 c/s.
Hi John
The problem in your GEC - increased height and reduced width as the transformer heats up - is similar to the one in the Bush TV22/24 sets and others in the sense that it results from a reduction in the efficiency of the transformer (in your case probably due to losses in the magnetic circuit) although your solution is not directly applicable here since the TV22/24 LOPT is built around a single core made of iron-based laminations.
