Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Fl231 I hope I do not sound ignorant but I did not find the fl231 fuse. There is a glass 5A fuse to the right of the flyback right next to the ac inlet cord and I did replace that one because it was blown. But the referrence on the board wasnot f231. I still can not get the Adjust Projection tv (to adjust the convercence of the colors) to show up in theScreen menu. Is there another fuse some where.

Some of those models are a different version of the PTK195 chassis some dont have the fuse. in that case you will need the convergence power supply board thats what likely blew the 5 Amp fuse. let me know if you need help locating one of those power supply boards.

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

This is great step by step, and it makes sense, but the problem is that I have a...


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'

Picture looks like hour glass.


You're probably talking about bad convergence. Probably Convergence power board. Only $20-$30 from encompassparts. com, if still available.

Fl231


Its just a regular fuse some models have F231 instead of FL231 it should be just to the upper right side of the flyback.

Adjust projection tv does not appear in the sceen menu


Its right next to the Flyback which is a large transformer about the size of a fist with a large red wire coming out of it. The fuses are located near that they are 3 fuses fuse FL231 is the center fuse.

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.
