Ha Ha, this problem is common with most televisions that have repeatedly been unhooked and rehooked to cable. some use pliers and tighten too tight till it snaps off, or just plain step on the cable while connected. Chances are you already have the solution already hooked up. If you have a VCR or DVD that is capable of searching tv channels, just hook that up to your TV with the yellow red and white cables to the Input jacks on the back of your tv, either in the Comp 1 or
Video input jacks. You can still adjust your screen size etc, with your original tv remote, but you will have to channel search with the VCR or DVD remote. (Snicker Snicker)

You can by an RFmodulator and a set of composite cables to get the cable signal into the tv provided you have audio and video inputs. You will then need to tune tv to the proper input to view.
Hope this helps you.

well yes and know...let me explain.at theshop this is a very common occurence that we see alot... this connector is atached to a thing called a tuner. the tunner is what the tv use to select the channel. withhout this you cant change channels what can be done is atach a vcr and then use the rca inputs.. you will have to change channels using vcr.some cable boxs do this also again chaning through the cable box. this can be repaired depending how much damage has been done our shop ussaly charged around 85 dollars to repair the connector.

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 antenna/cable in threaded piece has come out of the back of the tv. How can I fix that. I tried to put it back but it won't stay. I think I need a new one.


These sets have what is known as a on board Tuner. This means that the Tuner is not replaceable without replacing the entire Board. The good news is that you can replace the Cable/RF connector as long as the shield it attached to is not broke or too bent. Most of the Cable/RF connectors used in these sets have PCB mount . You will have to remove the Signal Board and unsolder the center connection of the broken connector left on the Board. Remount the new
Connector and solder the center connection. You may need a collar nut to secure the Connector the the shield.
I hope this helps,

Where can i find a cable for my HDTV (the kind that get screwed in)cables? its a Mitsubishi WT-46805


Hello sounds like the coaxial connector has come off or broken off the tuner, You can repair this problem using the old connector that broke off by taking out the tuner and resoldering the center pin back to the tuner board (provided the small tuner board is not cracked) and the out side of the connector to the tuner housing for ground. If you are just using or referring to a common coaxial cable to purchase, you can get these from everywhere Radio shack, Fry's etc. Also ur local cable company. If all else fails use the rca output jacks from the cable box if u have one and connect it to video input one on the back of the television, make sure you change you television input to video one if u decide to do it this way.

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.

Cable connector broke off rear of tv


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.

If you need to hook up to the barrel connector for cable or sat. you can use a converter box(Radio Shack) or VCR which both have a cable connection and then send it out component or Svideo.
