The disclosed technique is a driving method for a horizontal deflection circuit. This method accomplishes low power dissipation, high reliability for drive pulse duty error, and smaller space occupation at a printed circuit board. A power MOSFET is used for the purpose of both switching device and dumper diode of horizontal deflection circuit. Its gate is driven by a push-pull emitter follower circuit to switch the FET to "On" and "Off" rapidly. The gate drive voltage must be held at a high enough voltage in the case of the FET "On" state in order to obtain the lowest Drain-Source saturation resistance, but drive duty or frequency error may happen due to some reason, such as ESD and logic failure, and a protection function must be provided.
