    I need help finding a transformer. Again I had no luck on the internet. :cry: What it is in is a Apex AD-1000 DVD player. The number on the transformer is BCK-6D. Now I don't know if that is the number, but it is the only one on the transformer. I need to see a diagram of it. Also some typical voltages in, and out. :lol:

    I don't know about the transformer, but your Vering's quote is way off the mark.

    Thanks again. I also came to find out last week that it was not the transformer, but instead the MOSFET that drove it.

    What transformer is that?
    At first I thought it is the power transformer.

    It was the power transformer. The one in the switching power supply of the dvd player. But it wasn't what i thought.

    Why a mosfet drives the power transformer?
    Don't power transformers just connect to the plug through a fuse, switch and surge protection/noise blocking circuits?

    Star882, you are right. I just got my wording wrong. Yes the power transformer connects to the AC line. I was thinking of the switching transformer. You know the one where you have a bridge, the filter cap, transformer. The MOSFET drives the switching transformer. Look at a switching power supply schematic to get an idea of what I was talking about. Sorry for the confusion, the DVD player if fixed now.
