Question about RCA R52WM24 52" HDTV Projection Television

RCA HDTV Fuse location

I have an RCA 52 inch HDTV. The picture is curved and the colors are separated. When I went to the set up menu to do the auto-convergence, it is missing from the menu. I read that it could be fuse FL231. Could someone tell me where this is located and where I can get this part?

    The picture is curved from the top and bottom and colors are seperated in red blue green and yellow. Auto convergence no longer an option? Where can this fuse be found and how much trouble is it to replace, and will this fix the problem?

    I have the same problem with my RCA 52, the picture is curved, odd colors and the words are double. It is the power source and the part is costing us $300.00 total, a little expensive but better than spending $1000.00 on a new tv. Our tv is only 3 years old.

There are 3 small rectangles that are on the right side of the flyback, they are micro fuses FL231 is the center one. I am not sure if radio shack has them, may have to order from RCA

You have a problem with convergence and all you may need to do is replace a fuse. Look up convergence for your tv model and hopefully you will get an answer as to where the fuse is located and how to replace it. Very common for RCA tv's

RCA 52 INCH CONVERGENCE PROBLEM HELP/already replaced the fl231 fuse


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

Rca rear projection hdtv lost color convergence


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
