Re: 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.

Ok if I understand what you are saying. You are going from your TVs audio jack into an amplifier TEAC AG-V8050 and then into the Sennheiser T1250 unit? This is done to amplify the sound so your wife can hear the TV via Infared into headphones I am guessing. The connections would have to be as follows.
TV RCA jack (Installed by someone to TV audio Output section, most likely the speaker) to the Amplifier TEAC AG-V8050 via RCA cable then from the Amplifier via RCA cable to the Sennheiser TI 250 IR Transmitter. The transmitter then takes the audio input and turns it into a digital signal which is transmitted via IR to headphones which your wife is using.
First of all the amp TEAC AG-V8050 is not needed. what happend here is the person doing the installation took sound off of a preamp to avoid having to deal with the TV volume control. This works but it makes matters harder.
So here is how you troubleshoot this problem:
1) Disconnect the amplifier and plug the RCA jack of the TV into the RCA jack of a set of amplified Mono headphones. (This is to determine if sound is coming from the TV)
If not the problem is in the TV audio section and you will need to take it to a TV repair shop.
2) If audio is coming through the headset the trouble is in the amp or the sennhiser unit. To test the sennhiser unit: plug the sennhiser into the audio out of a VCR and listen in the headphones for sound. If you have sound, the sennheiser is good and the problem may be in the amplifier, but if you do not have sound the the sennheiser is bad.
3)Connect the audio out of the VCR into the audio in of the amplifier and plug the output of the amplifier into the sennheiser which tested good with just the VCR alone.
If no sound is present then the amp is your culprit.
Once you find out which component is the problem, I would suggest finding a rapair shop here on FitYa to repair your unit or having an electronics technician come to you to fix the bad component.
This should help,
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.
Hello ruthharris, I think the antenna is built in :S dunno exactly may be .. btw there is [Antenna] button on the remote control You can download the Manual of this TV by Clicking Here Thank you for using FixYa.
Yes there is a possibility that something shorted... remove the cable wire and unplug for 10 to 30 min and try plugging back in and restarting the set. otherwise the tuner probaly would need replaced. something any tv tech can do. AT the shop we replace these conectors al the time. just depends how bad the tuner is damaged.
