Where do you find this fuse?

the fl231 fuse problem can occur with movemtn of tv. Its caused by brittle connections. I get my special fuses from union electronics 1800 648 6657 or google the rca part 259213 check out my article in my tips and tricks section to determine if you have the fl231 problem if you dont have the convergence option in under setup in customer menu. then i would say you do, this is caused by bad solder connections and you wil have to solder this part in.

RCA R52WH74 (ITC222A Chassis)

no the board that has the FL231 on is the ITC222 deflection board. The other board is above the chassis in a seperate frame that runs across the set the convergence power supply is the board on the left above the board where the fL231 is. Yes the ITC222 and ITC222A are the same chassis. As for the service manual that site should have the service manual under the thomson category as the ITC 222 chassis is actually a thomson chassis made for RCA.

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.
