    Model # 32GT660 YX1, chassis # CTC187CN3. Unit had bad connection @
    horizontal drive transformer, & horizontal output (BUH517) was
    shorted. Replaced with original part, & soldered
    the horizontal drive, checked, C4303 smt cap, & R4402 resistor, can't
    locate anything bad. My
    scope is out of commission. Any tips I missed on this one? Pix is
    perfect, & flyback shows not
    available as an original. Thanks, Dani.

    You could try replacing any electrolytics in the vicinity or along the
    B+ line, I've seen that cause an overheated HOT. That can be a really
    frustrating problem to track down without a scope.

    Check all the electrolytic caps and diodes in the area of the horiz
    output secondary supply. There is also a strong possibility that the
    flyback transformer also failed. I have seen this in these types of TV
    sets.
