Rca hd52w59 3d screen colors are seroperated no convergence


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.
