    Futureshop (Best Buy) in house brand. Model # ISTVCA102222 32" CRT TV.
    Unit is dead the
    28 volt secondary diode from the flyback is shorted, & keeps shorting
    out, after five minutes,
    & everything checks out fine, even the vertical IC isn't getting hot,
    & the picture is perfect.
    Location # VD 304 part # FR103 (NTE # 552). I called the customer tech
    line, the lady can
    barely speak english, & was no help at all. The TV looks like a Prima
    (China made), she didn't
    confirm that, just said they make them. Does anyone know a cross
    reference from Prima to
    Insignia? Prima has been dropped in this province, due to totally no
    service from B.C. Canada.
    It's extende warranty, & is a good money maker, otherwise I would
    refuse to even take it in!
    Someone must know about these sets. I'm the only one in this whole
    area doing them, & when
    needed, service is non existant! Thanks for any help, Dani.

    Use a real diode, not an NTE. An MI-35 or RCA 243636 works for just
    about anything but a top damper.

    Also realize if the source is trace rectified you'll need about a 300
    volt diode for it.

    Thanks for the tip! I used a 243636 RCA diode, & it works fine now! I
    just though there was something I
    missed! Also, for you guys doing Insignia...some ARE made in Chine by
    Prima, just remove the first five
    digits of the serial number, & the next six digits are the model
    number of the actual Prima chassis.
    Example: S # 12345TS3235123456 take off the 12345, you get TS3235, &
    drop the 123456 at the end!
    I'm not sure how much Insignia TV's are made by Prima, as I don't see
    very much! Thanks again, Dani.
