This is a common problem and as long as the internal PC board inside the tuner is not broken, the connector can be replaced. The connector should not cost more than about $5. ANy local service shop should be able to replace it for you.

I have a RCA 52"


This happens all the time. It just might be fixable. This connector is known as the "f" connector or female coaxal connector. Most average electronics technician can fix them. This connector is attached to a component called the tuner. The tuner is what takes the signal and selects the channel the tv recieves. To replace the connector it means removeing the cuircit board that the tuner is on and then removeing the tunner, disasembling the tuner. Now until you find a good tech, there is another option... take an vcr and use the rca inputs on set. essitally tunning the set through the vcr. Now you will have to change channels through the vcr. but it will work. also there is a chance that the tuner might be damaged. just depends on the damage that occured when the connector was broke off..,let me know if you need any more help

Yea i have a 52 in rear projection hdtv and i went to move it and the cable piece itself broke off and now the tv power light blinks three times and jus shuts off how can i fix that


the cable connector being broke more than likely has damaged the tuner. sometimes the tuner can be rebuilt depending on the damage. since the set is shutting down there may be more damage. if the set stayed on you might be able to bypass it using vcr. the worst case the small signal board might need replaced that cost aroun 300

The cable hook up on the TV broke off.


Yes...You may have to buy a new RF connector and replace. This will take some very good patience or purchase a new complete tuner. If you are not in a hurry for the tech shop. Use the rca jacks on the tv to a cable or satellite box. Just be sure when you power off you tv, that the tv is really off. A blank raster will look as if it is shut down for the time being! Good Luck!

The metal part on back of Sharp Aquos TV where cable connects broke off. What do I do?


If you have a cable or sattellite box I would use the HDMI, Component, or audio/video cables instead. If you don't, you will have to have a new RF connector put on.

Main cable connector broke off back of TV


Maybe so. Sometimes the connector is fed by an RCA connector which just plugs in inside the TV and sometimes it needs a little solder work. Sometimes you have to solder on the circuit board and if it's a multi-layer board you want an expert to do it but from the manual it doesn't look like that is the case with your TV.
I'm pretty sure Radio Shack stocks such connectors with maybe a little hardware to get the fit right.
