check out this http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/uc3846.html

go close to the bottom and there is a section called application notes, go through those and see if that helps you.

These devices are Current controlled. you have to provide a Current sense resistor and fead back circuit.

Each cycle have to be controlled through these signals.

check you have configured the comp signal properly.

Make sure that the comp pin is high, shutdown is low, make sure CL pin is set. You can also add a slope comp circuit to get some sort of ramp on the curr feedback pin- (this also helps with noise immunity)

App note..
