My TV seems to suffer from the fuse description you posted. The only diff. with my set is it will play for about 15 min just fine before the screen goes wacky. Mine is an RCA MM52100 in the main menu under SCREEN, ADJUST PROJECTION TV, there is three convergence options AUTO, RED, BLUE. Do you still think I have this problem, and if so why will it play for 15 min?
RCA TV Model No. MM52110. Green light comes on, however TV does not. (No audio or video signal) Using remote button when pressed only a click, click sounds is heard. Can't find fuse location. Removed back and cleaned out dust. Same results occured.

no the fl231 fuse is only for model itc222 rca's . these older set unfortunately do not have that fuse convergence is contolled by a sepreated cuircit board. also these set have no stk ics that are common for most set that control convergence. it uses a series off transistors.
This set, I am sorry to say has no bulb and has no ballast circuit. There are three picture tubes inside this TV set. What exactly was the part you pulled out? Can you post a picture of the Part you pulled out?
Ok thanks for the info Now this is an indication of convergence issues(3d effect) the bowing issue idicates a complete loss of convergence power. which possible could be the convergence ic or the actual power feeding them. im feeling like it might be the ic overheating these get very hot. now the bad news. this is a set that is very difficult to work on. Rca has compiled a long list of problems with this set. getting to the chips is a chore. i cannot recommend repairing this set. I know no one likes to hear this.
there are several rca issued suggestions. the top one isChange C19542 on the Digital Convergence PCB from a 10uF 63WVDC capacitor (214698) to a 470uF, 25WVDC capacitor part number 214746. Also change the 24V zener diode CR19720 (226446) on the Convergence Power Supply board to a 30V 500 milliwatt zener diode, part number 231211 this but as i said this may or may not be the best solution
rubber cap? i dont feel you have the correct fuse. fl231 is a small rectangular brown fuse next to flyback. I have written detail instructions on the replacement of this fuse. look under willtab profile under tips in tricks section. intitles the fl231 fuse problem. this also help you indetify if this is the problem.
yes, thats the replacement fuse for your set. However unless you have replaced the convergence power supply also chances are the fuse will blow again, as the power supply shorting is what causes the convergence to get out of alignment and it will then blow FL231 thereby removing the convergence option from the menu.
this is an indication of convergence problem. from your description the curved screen indicates complete loss of covergence. First question is in setup menu do you have the convergence option? if no then it will be the fl231 fuse problem. common to these set and if you can solder. its not a difficult repair. if you do have the option. then it can be any or all of three cuircit boards. let me know and i will do my best to see if i can help you fix it
So the set is completley without convergence? bowed and the 3d effect.]
There is a small brown rectangular fuse fl231> it is common for this to blow due to poor solder conections on what is known as the flyback. IF this is your problem then it not a difficult repair. i do them all the time at the shop in about 15 min. Getting the fuse is the most difficult thing.
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.
