Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Where would I buy the three brown fuses that are at the back left of my HD52W59 TV. I know one is not any good for sure - not sure about the others. The colors started separating a while ago - we can autoconverge when tv is first turned on and it does well for a while then it clicks and the red is out of alignment. Now the power button appears to come on but after about 30 seconds it goes back off - the tv picture never actually comes on. Was told it was probably the 3 brown fuses - have you had this problem before

I see a possible fix for missing convergence on a rca hd52w59 by replacing the convergence fuse. I've looked all over and can't find it. If it really has this fuse, where is it??? Thanks

If your looking in the rear of the set on the far left side you will see a large black HV transformer that has a large red wire coming from its top. Thats the flyback transformer look directly to the right of that and you will see three small brown rectangles with FL221, FL231 and FL251 stamped on it. The center one is FL231 if thats blown the set will have a 3D look and the auto convergence feature will no longer be listed under the setup menu.

You have a defective deflection board. Normally there is a three brown fuses next to the fly-back transormer and one of then must me open for over current. You need to replace the fuse and resoldered all the Fly-back transformer pins...Good Luck

Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to change the convergence chips which are located behind the black heat sink; you can see once you open the back off the TV. You can buy the convergence chips from this link; also if you want you can buy repair kit which comes with complete installation and parts. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Convergience not working, three color pictures and concaved top and bottom. Is there a module that I can replace?

Check the small brown fuse FL231 located just to the lower right of the flyback. There are 3 small brown fuses. The middle one is FL231. Most likely it is blown. The reason it blows is because of the lead free solder used on the new boards. If you turn the board over you will probably find cracked solder joints on the flyback terminals. Re-solder all of the flyback terminals and replace the fuse if it is blown. This fuse tells the TV that it is a rear frojection TV and not a standard CRT
