Hi

If it is the antenna (RF) socket you are referring to, it is often mounted directly to the tuner module, and is not really an individual part by itself. If you still have it, and it is not too damaged, the socket can generally be refitted to the tuner module, but often as not, you will need to remove the tuner from the chassis to achieve this sort of repair effectively. If you don't have the socket(header) and more, then you may have to get the tuner pack complete. Hope this is what you were asking, as no models were mentioned, I am flying blind a little. Get back to me with the model if not . A FixYa rating is a great reward for this and any future advice. Feel free to ask any questions. I am happy to help :)

regards

My cable plug broke off the back of my tv. What should I do..can I take it in to get fixed.


If the plug broke off, it should still be connected by wire to the components inside, and therefore still useable. Coaxial is very tough and would be hard to break unless cut. But if it did, I would recommend having taking it in to get serviced because coaxial wires are a pain in the behind to attach to their sockets.
With the right tools and know how it is a very quick fix, so don't let anyone rip you off.

Cable connection broke on back of tv


YOu will need a box that will convert your coaxial signal (cable) into a another using either Composite (RCA wires) or component (Yr,Yb, Yg) outputs. Your local radio shack should be able to accommodate you

Broken coax connection on back of unit


If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.

Cable plug broke off


Well first repair the coaxial cable going to your antenna. There is no way you can use RCA cables as a substitution for coaxial cable. They have totally two different properties. You can use the coaxial and feed it to a VCR/DVD player where you can output the signal with RCA/composite cables. Basically, use your VCR/DVD player as a tuner for your TV.
