    Well, I got to the bottom of the problem with this 17" KTX monitor
    mentioned recently. For those with a short attention span, I was having
    trouble with the red gun cutting out intermittently.

    I selected the two most likely components to be causing the problem, and
    swapped them to different gun channels on the neckboard. When the blue
    gun played up, I knew it had to be the driver transistor.

    So, does anyone know where I can get a 2SC3953 or equivalent?


    Pinout is E-B-C
    Package TO-126

    ** The price in their cat is $ 1.70 for any trade customer - are you
    not one ?????

    Customer numbers are available just by asking.

    Maybe they already know what a jerk you are Rob.

    Yeah, I'm now a registered customer, and the price became $1.70

    I've heard of WES before but never had need to use their services
    because I don't specialise in TV/Video repair, which is where they seem
    to focus.

    ** Its called a "trade discount".

    ** They pretty much cover the consumer electronic repair business, hi-fi
    audio and PC monitors as well.

    If you need a Asian made transistor or IC they are the first place
    to look - cos they are so cheap there.

    However - they are not yet an on-line supplier.

    Use the phone and credit card for non account customers.

    Yeah, now that I have their cattledog in front of me I can see they are
    better described as consumer electronics specialists.
