Some flybacks have multipliers and other stuff in them. Look for secondaries
that are disc shaped rather than drum shaped. You can see some pics of
various flybacks and other info at:
Look in the "misc HV" section. Fair Radio Sales (linked on the site, don't
have it handy) has some flybacks that I have been having fun with, 3 for
12$, good deal. If my meters and probes can be believed (which I don't
really, RFHV is funny stuff) I have pushed 40-50kv out of these. If not that
much, a lot :-) !!
With the one you have, try grounding various pins while checking for output
from the HV lead. I have managed to get *something* out of any flyback I
have tried, except one with a shorted secondary. Keep trying, flybacks are
