Hello Fred. I am still searching for the Flyback Tester circuit I advised about last week. I have located a much earlier one but it is so old that it uses a "tube" (do you know what that is). However, the rest of the article has some useful hints. I will E-Mail you a scan of it to your address directly.
In passing, a lot of flyback testing procedures were evolved in the tube era and were implemented for flybacks which had windings configured for hi-voltage-low current operation. I doubt that many of the modern flybacks designed for solid state circuitry, and having many additional features, such as complete power supply windings, would be able to be tested completely using such devices. In some cases, however, it could be useful.
Will advise when the circuit I want turns up.
