    rca hd52w59 ,,,, tv just turnd of will not turn on cn you help

    That fuse is near the "flyback" or at least thats what I believe its
    called that . it is a small square fuse that is solidered in to the
    board and is the middle of the 3 in the group. I was able to jump it
    from the underside of the board to test it and as soon as I did the
    converegence menu came back and the set worked. Good Luck

    I am just wanting to know how you jumped the fl231 fuse, and what you used to jump it with?

  • gajeep May 23, 2009

    FL 231 is a flat part in a group of three. It is the middle one and is red in color. Make sure your flyback solder points are good or the fuse will blow again. Your best bet is to resolder the entire flyback, as some cracked points are hard to see. The flyback is the big component with red wires coming out of the top next to fl231.
    FL231 is the only component needing to be replaced when dealing with a 3d look and no autoconvergence menu. The fuse is only .99 cents at Digikey.com.

    What does this look like? Is there a schematic that can be emailed to me? I whent to Digikey and typed fl231 in the search and nothing came up?

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.

Can you tell me where in the TV I will find fl231 and can you tell me what the fuse looks like? Is it flat...round or what? In my TV, on the circuit board, there is a flat red (what looks like a copassitor) item marked fl231.

Does the rca 52950 have the fl231 fuse? If so where is it located? If not which fuse controls the convergence. I fixed my newer model tv with the fl231 fuse but I dont see it in this tv.


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.

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.
