Hello everyone!

I recently acquired a G3 All-In-One that is in working condition except for the internal display. I narrowed the problem down to the flyback transformer (the 75 V pin is open) and have already removed it from the circuit board.

Where can I get a replacement transformer?

Thanks for any help

Phil

Further to my flyback blues...

I went to a few local shops and was given the evil eye and a curt "NO!" when asking if they had any flyback transformers for Apple computers. Local Apple dealer Ray (always very helpful and friendly - www.mantek.mb.ca) gave me a G3 AIO chassis (no motherboard) but it has a bad flyback transformer as well.
I found some sources in the USA:

But I would like to find a Canadian source.

The transformer part # is 6174Z-1009A.

They gave you the evil eye be

They gave you the evil eye because they wanted to get the labor fees for replacing it for you more than the small profit from selling you the flyback directly. Smile You're probably saving a bit by buying it online anyway. Of course, tht's if you do find your local CAN suppier to save on shipping and taxes.

The problem with replacing th

The problem with replacing the transformer rather than using an external monitor is that you will likely never find an actual Apple transformer, because they're all broken. Tongue

So your best bet is to find the exact part it is and try a local electronics shop for it.
