Re: Computer Monitor
it has a flyback circuit which produces the HV from the retrace (e.g.
"flyback") of the sweep at the end of each horizontal sweep - it will run at
10Khz to 50Khz depending on the monitor (TVs run at 14.4 Khz) and there will
be a transistor and some other circuitry to drive it. You will find on
newer monitors that the flyback circuit aslo produces all the standard
voltages fo operate the monitor circuitry - saves on one transformer by
eliminating the input power conversion and regulation.. the transformer
will be (probably) inside an epoxy module.
