Introduction

The most common issue with humming, and intermittent failure to come on, is a failed transformer. The part number for the transformer is LTT2PC0XB044. The least expensive one I found was $11. This set opens up without any difficulties, the layout of the PCB's is clean and neat. Philips was kind enough, to mark the screws that need to be removed, with an arrow on the circuit board.
