Re: Cable Connector inside TV

Unless you know how to sholder well and know how to do an isolation test on the set after its repaired I would let a pro do it My friend as I've seen it a hundred times. A peep will simply hook up a connector to the set and ground the connector or what looks like a ground and as soon as that set is pluged into an ac outlet and a cable or sat line is attached KAPOWWWWEEYYY.. It smokes and you end up blowing out the bridge rectifiers aong with all sorts of things. Now dont get me wrong please as you can repair set if and only if you wanna take that chance by simply taking a piece of coax cable with a connector on one end and soldering the center wire onto the broken wire that came off the connector and then soldering the outside or sheild wire to the place where the broken connector was attached if at all possible BUT I repeat this is not a good way to do this. Good luck

How do I connect the coaxial cable?

This is quite simple. Your wall box is a male connector. The TV input is a female one. Make a cable with resp; female and a male connector. Unless the wall box has a 'screw on' connector. (FC10 f.i.) Then you need this special item and/or crimp tools in order to fit this FC type connector to the coax cable. Not simple.

I have a General Electric Model: 27GT620 TV circa 1998; the cable connection has become loose and has caused the picture to go from picture to snow; originally we could "wiggle" the male...

Yes, you have a bad ground on your RF connector. With lots of patience, it can be repaired. You must remove the tuner shields from the TV. It will need to be unsoldered. Pull the shields off either side of the tuner. Donot even attempt to move the red coils you see in the tuner. If the red coils look bent or smashed it is for good reason. Do not bend or move these. I cannot say enough about these. Next you will solder the Rf connector and the tail that is is still connected to the tuner board. Inspect all the solder connections on the solder side of this tuner on board.There are about twenty bad grounds. You will have to really concentrate and excercise great caution to solder. Be careful not to burn any traces on the tuner board. Patience is a virtue here, any mistake may destroy your TV. After careful inspection and soldering you may resolder the tuner shields. If you feel you must replace the Rf connector that part is an RCA #215543. Remember it will take more than replacing this connector, to fix the snow you receive on the TV. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

Can you connect earphones to this TV? -GE25GT240 Serial #943516018

There is no front panel earphone jack for this TV. From the owners manual I can't find the rear view of this television. If there are connections on the back for AUDIO OUT there will be two connections for an RCA type connector. All you need to do is to get an adapter (from Radio Shack) and plug that into the two Audio Out connectors on the back of your television and plug your headphones into that adapter.

I recommend this one:

If you have a 1/4 headphone connector (the old type) you can convert the 1/8 to 1/4 inch with this one.

The CATV connector on my Mitsubishi tv is broken off

This is the connector for the tuner. This repair must be done by someone who knows how to solder. But, if you have a Cable or Satellite box and this TV has AV connectors on the can use those and do not need to repair the TV tuner. If you do not have cable or satellite you can also use a VCR as a tuner. Just put the cable into the VCR and come out of the [VCR] AV outputs into the TV AV inputs.

Digital to analog converter box hookup

You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

Tv connector cable plug slips out

you need to replace your wall cable outlet. This can be purchased at any Radio Shack or Home Depot store. You will find two mounting screws , remove them and you will have access to the junction box. If the cable system was installed in the proper manner you will find a double male connector attached to the face plate by a single securing nut. Remove this nut and replace the double male connector. simple job, hope this was a help to you.

The cable coax male connection is disconnected from the television

The coax connector you describe is called the F connector and the silver box it is attached to is called the tuner. The original F connector or a replacement F connector can be soldered back into the tuner, but the metal frame of the tuner must be straightened out and the center pin must be delicately reattached too. This is quite an easy job but requires some labor, assuming that nothing was jammed into the tuner when the F connector was out and the coils behind the F connector have not been disturbed. I usually charge about $40 to reattach F connectors but if I have to replace the tuner I charge about $50 because it is a lot less labor to replace the tuner and they can be purchased for about $25.

1996 32 inch Panasonic TV

What you are calling the "antenna module" is actually the tuner. The connector that pulled out is called the F connector. The F connector can be soldered back onto the tuner but this is a very delicate procedure and is especially difficult if any of the coils in the area of the F connector have been bent, altered or moved. The tuner itself is not too expensive and is much easier to replace than trying to replace the F connector, especially if you have never done one before. If you use this set with a cable box then simply connect AV cables from the cable box to the TV set the TV to VIDEO.
