FL231 fuse I pulled the fuse and will get another to replace. I read your instructions on how to repair. My question is "5" under the flyback appears to be gold with bown stuff around it. Is this what could have caused the fuse to blow? Do I need to remove that solder and redo?

This is old Flux and yes to get a proper connection this should be removes when you resoolder. remove the old solder with braid or a vacum desolder.. the use old toothbrush or a que tip with some ..;;well i use acetone to clean joints you can use alchol but it not the best. then resolder the joint.. the flux didnt cause the problem but it does not help

    if you have convergence issue simular to the fl231 and still have the convergence option then you more than likely have a convergence power supply problem. does the autoconvergence work? if it doesnt then the convergence power supply board may need replaced

So what's a flyback or convergence option ??. Heck, even a stick-figure Diagram might do the trick. It's nice 2 have folks like ya'll sittin' 'round helpin' each-other out


The flyback is the large transformer that has the thick red wire coming out of it. The solder has a tendency to crack slightly which causes the FL231 Fuse to blow ( just to the right of the flyback) When the FL231 fuse blows the convergence option will disappear from the setup menu and the set will appear 3d with an arced picture. I am attaching a pic that shows the Flyback with a white circle, The FL231 is the yellow circled item next to the flyback11_1_2012_11_47_00_pm.jpg

Tip

The Fl231 PROBLEM(CONVERGENCE NOT IN CUSTOMER MENU) ITC22 chasis


FL231. FUSE.... The RCA ITC222 chasis has a common problem. and it not all that difficult to repair. Does your rca projection tv have read blue and green shadows? Does it have bowing in affect on the top and bottom of picture? when you turn it on does some thin red green and blue line bow in from the top then go away. The main question to determine if you have the fl231 fuse problem is if you go into customer menu then setup do you have the "CONVERGENCE' option. If you do not. then i suspect you have this problem. In the manufactering of these sets Lead free solder is used. now there is great debate over the use of lead free. connection tend to be more brittle. cracks develop around the solder connections of the high voltage flyback transformer. this very small crack set up oscillations in the cuicit with a 400 milliamp fuse. THis fuse cant take it. When this fuse blows the processor then does not know its a projection tv with three projection tubes. it thinks its a crt tube tv. and crt tube tv dont need "convergence" so it removes the convergence from the set.

TO REPAIR... 1. Warning. this set can generate leathal dangerous voltages even unplug do not attempt if you have no experence with electronics.
2. Remove the back. there a number of torx 20 screws.
3. what you will see is a number of circit boards There will be one on the right and one on the left. the one on the right is the small signal board. the one on the left is called the power deflection board. it has a large black part with a big red or black wire coming from the top, this is the flyback.Next to the flyback on the right of it there will be three small rectangular componets tan or brown in color. these are fuses. the one in the middle is the fl231 fuse.
4. getting to this fuse can be difficult. these two cuicit boards sit on a tray that is removable. to remove this tray it is pulled out and up. BUt watch the wires.loosen the wire tyes.
5 when you get the tray up the bottom side of the board can be accessed
you will now have to unsolder that fuse. one side of this fuse is under a plastic part of the tray. i have found the easest way is to cut away the plastic to get to it. if you dont want to do this you will have to remove the board. only remove half of the plastic brace
6. REPLACE FUSE RCA PART 259213
7 RESOLDER FLYBACK CONNECTIONS simply heat up and add a little solder
8 reassemble set. make sure you examine the set for loose connections.
9 and remember "BE Careful'

My mom has a RCA HD61W66 and the picture was showing red, blue and green "lines and shadows" as if the picture was warped. It has now stopped showing a picture at all but the power is working....


The flyback transformer has solder cracks around the pins and most likely blown the FL231 Micro fuse to the right of the flyback.I would inspect the flybacks solder. The FL231 and the CL230 and DL231 should also be replaced ( near the flyback) You can get the ITC222 Convergence option missing repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com under the RCA repair kits. The kit contains the parts and the CD with repair instructions

Convergency has gone out of sync, went to try to realign but the convergeny setting was not listed in the tools menu.


Thats usually caused by a blown FL231 Fuse and a blown DL231 diode that blow when the flyback transformer develops solder cracks around the pins. The repair is to first resolder the flyback then replace the FL231 fuse and DL231 diode. You can get the RCA / GE convergence option missing repair kit which has the parts and repair instructions from www.tvrepairworld.com

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.
