Fl231 fuse quest

I'm wondering is there a replacement fuse that can handle the voltage instead of inserting the same OE (original equipment)? I've replaced my fuse today and within a couple hours it blew again. i'm taking the blame and assuming my soldering skills are not up to par and the reason for it blowing a second time, but a higher rated improved fuse would be reassuring as well. i'm well aware a bad soldering job will not do justice to an improved fuse either, but again if i can eliminate a troubled fuse, troubleshooting a common problem becomes there a better improved replacement fuse out there?? if so can someone tell me where i can get that?

i also want to thank you for this site. i've saved alot of money, this fuse can blow 10 times and i'd still save money replacing it myself than having a tech make a house call. not that i want to nor hope to, but such a common problem should probably have more attention paid to it by the manufacturer. as much as i love this tv i will not but another rca tv product and thats unfortunate. thanks in advance for all your replys

    i fixed my problem with the wire from a bread tie. Works for now. Either something will start on fire, or hurt something else. But it won't blow, and will buy me a while before I get another TV!!

    The flyback kaliki73 is the large black component with the big red wire coming from the top (kinda looks like a car distribitor)

How to fix a window driver's side on a Nissan quest 2004....

First, you must establish what the issue is:
  1. Check for supply voltage to the actuator switch. If there is voltage TO the switch, activate the switch, and test for voltage on the switch output. If there is no voltage to to the switch, trace the issue back to the fuse panel. If there is voltage at the switch input AND voltage at the output of the switch, continue...
  2. Is the vehicle equipped with an "express" automatic window mode? If so, check to be sure the microswitch on the regulator is functioning. Also, verify that the automatic module (located in the armrest) is operating. Continue...
  3. When the actuator switch is operated, check for voltage at the motor. If there is voltage at the motor, make sure that the regulator mechanism is not jammed. (Has it been lubricated in the past 10 years?) Continue...
  4. If the actuator is operating and the regulator mechanism is operating correctly but the power window still does not work, replace the window motor.

Wont turn on after replacing FL231 fuse on a RCA HD52W59

If you replaced the fuse alone without installing the other components that are rquired to repair that issue the new fuse can allow voltages to flow trough the diode in both directions which can prevent the set from firing up. You need to replace the FL231, DL231 and CL230 as a set then reflow the solder on the flyback and vertical IC.

Its just a regular fuse some models have F231 instead of FL231 it should be just to the upper right side of the flyback.

RCA 52w59 projection fuse fl231

Instead of taking the board out, I just soldered two wires to the old fl231 fuse on the underside. Installed a fuse holder with a half amp fuse. And I re-soldered all of the flyback points. My tv is working like new. thanks for everyone's help.
