Open Fuse FL231 will cause your problem.

This problem is actually caused by fuse FL231 being blown. A common cause of FL231 blowing repeatedly is the resoldering the High Voltage transformer on the flyback board. The board you are looking for is, if you are looking at the tv from the back with the back open, the board on the left. The fuses are marked on the board. If you replace the fuse, converge the T.V. watch for a bit then you get the same problem, THAT is when you want to reheat and add a dab of solder to the points where the HV transformer is attached to the flyback board. I know this because of 2 VERY helpful experts on this site that helped me through this problem myself, One of those experts being Ladywinn.

First of all, if you have any warranty or service plan, exercise them. Secondly, you can bring it to a local service center. There are also a lot of technicians willing to work on-site at your home. You mentioned an IC that needs replacing. I cross-reference that and it seems it is a very inexpensive part ($7.90) that you may be able to replace yourself if you have used a soldering iron. It is simply a switching regulator. It says it controls power switching on CRT displays. If your TV is a CRT don't bother with it, the repairs can cost you more than half of what a VERY decent LCD would. Go into a local Radio Shack and ask about the 37'' AKAI, it even has a built in DTV tuner, the picture is beautiful. It supports 1080i/p but it is scaled(1366x768).

Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.


You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.
