Rca hd52w59 3d screen colors are seroperated no convergence

Screen is 3d, colors are out of wack, screeen is bowed, and auto convergence is not in the menu. most likly fl231 fuse is blown. my question is has anyone fixed the problem by just replaceing the fuse or is it more likely another problem causing the fuse to blow? has anyone experiencing this have a solution? it seems that there are about 4-5 possibilities but no solutions.

    I have the same exact problem. Wanted to know it replacing the one fuse will work or is this something bigger. And does any 125V fuse work or do I have to get specifically a FL231 fuse? Having trouble finding them.

    i will give that a try i have resoldered all the flyback connections and pulled the fl231 fuse wich is blown i will have to wait for the fuse to come in as no one seems to have one in stock and i will post the results.



    thanks for your help

I have found the reason for the fl231 fuse blowing is faulty solder connections on the flyback transformer is the main cause. I have came across only one bad signal board that cause this but this was very very rare 1 in 1000. This is a very specific fuse, .400 and it is recomended only to replace with exacte one. consult the fl231 problem in the tips and tricks section.

Screen lookes like colores separating


Here's all I find regarding bad convergence from the techrepairCD:
RCA ~ITC222 D52W20~Convergence bad~~~ITC222~Replace leaky DL032 on
deflection board~~~~~~

RCA~D52W20Y ATC221~Convergence goes out/bowed after on for a few
minutes~~~ATC221~Problem may be on the deflection board. Was unable to
pinpoint where in this case.~~~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Convergence way off after replacing small signal
board~EEPROMS were transferred over to new board~~~IK210 was
defective..transfer the new EEPROM back over.~Remember on these
sets*when replacing the SSB* if there is a small P on corner of
screen*hold volume on remote for 8 seconds after it reaches minimum.~~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Can not align blue convergence* bottom really
bowed* possibly either color after replacing SSB.(Or no auto
convergence.~(Service menu: turn power off for 30 seconds* press vol dn
and ch dn* simultaneously for 8 seconds* set turns on with service menu
options)~~ITC222~In service menu* select convergence. If sensor
calibration was performed when convergence was too far off* it will not
alighn.~Get crosshatch with straight lines* perform sensor calibration*
then attempt convergence alignment again. Be sure to store settings*
then do sensor calibration again.~You must get a green flash of the
screen after sensor cal and a check in the box. RED flash indicated
convergence settings are too far off~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~no convergence correction~~~ITC222~LP650
(259271) DP670 (259246) & RP632 (259564) 4.7 3W on convergence power
supply board~~~~~~

Screeen is bowed and i have a ghost or 3d effect on the screen. the tubes may need to be converged, but not sure how.


This RCA DLP tv model have auto convergence at it menu,lost it from the menu or can't get to converge,this tv have a convergence fuse mean the convergence fuse FL(231) near the FBT-flyback tranformer is dead.U have a soldering iron,a roll of desodering braid or a desoldering pump and a roll of solders,also can do basic soldering.Try website like Ebay.com to buy a convergence fuse(FL231) to do the replacement.

Turns on with sound but the picture is running colors mostly see red and blue also double vision. 3 colored lines show up on screeen when first turn on


do you have the convergence option in the customer setup menu? is the picture convcave bowed in at top and bottom. if you dont have the convergence option you might have the fl231 fuse problem. or something simular. first read this to determine if you do. if you dont you might have still have a convegence issue http://www.fixya.com/support/r1062030-fl231_problem_convergence_not_in let me know i am here to help.

RCA D52W20 52" TV AUTO CONVERGENCE WON'T COMPLETE


Sounds like your convergence chip has gone bad. Usually costs about $300-$400 to fix. I would call a local TV repair shop and let them give you a free estimate.
