You can temporarially. Its recomended not to exceed fuse ratings especially the amperage do to pretective reasons. You can get the proper FL231 fuse at the following link. They have a 10.00 minimum order for free shipping so you may have to order enough fuses to add up to 10.00 or pay for shipping if under 10.00 Heres the link.

Replaced the fl231 fuse tv worked for day now blown again and tv keeps shutting off what do i check now


Resolder the flyback pins as thats what causes the FL231 fuse to blow. Soldering the flyback should solve the issue you may need to replace the fl231 again

Can I use a thermal fuse from Radio shack in place of the FL231 micro fuse? the thermal fuse has a 250vac with a max current of 10a?


I wouldn't. Fuses that expire must be replaced with the same type and rating as the original otherwise your safety may be compromised.

Convergance is off


I have an RCA 52” HDTV Model R52WM24 the other day it developed a convergence problem (The picture took on a 3D effect and it the screen had an hour glass type of shape)

This appears to be a common problem or a pattern failure.
I wanted to confirm that I did find the fuse p/n FL231 to be blown.
I think it said the RCA part # is 259213 and it is a 400 ma, 125V fuse, Looks like a square capacitor by the fly back xfmr.

I bought a generic part from Digi Key and it seems to be the identical replacement part to the fuse that was in the circuit.

The Digi-Key part is part # WK4440BK-ND (99 CENTS EACH).
THIS IS A 125V, 400 MA ( 0.4 A FUSE). Digi Key PHONE # IS 1-800-344-4539

I am watching the TV right now for last 3 hours and it seems to be a good fix.
The fly back transformer solder connections looked good but it is recommended to re solder these part ( so I did).

Good luck

Fl231 fuse compatibility


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.

Fusible link keeps blowing out , shutting tv off


Arynsunn,

Thanks to you, I was able to find the solution to my problem.
Have you tried using the correct Fusible Link? I noticed in another post that you said you replaced it with a 500ma instead of the 400ma. I had the same original problem as you and found the exact fuseible links at www.mouser.com. Part# 576-3960400000 Littelfuse Fuses - A 125V UL TL LL .400A . They are only 55 cents plus shipping. I bought 5 for under $10 shipped. Only took 2 days to get them. My TV works like a charm now! I too thought I may need to replace the IC's but thankfully my TV is working fine. If you did need to replace them, where were they located? I couldn't find any stk IC's inside either and the IC's on the heat sinks are all small. Just trying to be proactive, in case I ever need to replace them.
