I am working with an RCA model 32F530T TV.
The chassis number is ATC113-CD4.
The unit makes a constant chirp noise when plugged in.
I checked it out and found that the horizontal output
transistor was shorted, its a 2SC5148 with no internal
damper diode. I checked the surrounding components
and solder joints all appear to check ok. I replaced the
transistor but when I plugged the unit in it popped the
transistor and started chirping again. I'm thinking
that the flyback may be at the source of the problem.
However I have seen so many replace it in cases like
this just to find that it really wasnt problem and I dont
want to be among them. (Any help would be apreciate)

Something I noticed when replacing the HOT is that they didnt
use any heat sink compound on the transistor surface.
Is there any reason why I shouldnt use any?

if you don't use any the transistor will overheat and fail again
so its recommanded to use thermal paste
