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

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.

I triped over the cable cord. Cable cord end that protrudes fron TV was broken off. need to replace it so I can get cable reception.Please Help .Other wise the T V was showing great.


I'm sorry to tell you this ... when this happened with the TV at work (a camp;ing resort), we found the "F" connection was mounted to a printed circuit board attached to the 'motherboard' of the TV. The board was more than $100.00. We bought a new board and the new kid got to it before I could and he mixed up the wires. After the technician was done with it, the bill was another $250.00.

What I can recommend to you to prevent future damage is dont connect the cable to the TV -- get a short piece of cable and fasten your TV to a "F" fitting stand-off which would be firmly mounted to non strategic part of your TV. Then connect the cable to the stand off. Next time it is pulled on, it will pull the end off your cable (fix for a couple bucks) and not tear the guts out of your TV.

The parts are probably available to you. Make sure you have the right parts in your hand before you do anything ... and then take lots of pictures and notes as you remove the old and insert the new.

I hope this helps you ...

The part that you screw the cable wire into is broken off.


you don't need the connector that broke off. Do you have a cable box ? if so use the video output. That's the yellow, red and white leads. hook them to the video 1 in on your set. switch the set to video 1. If you don't have a cable box use a vcr or combo vcr dvd with a tunner.

Broke the piece where the cable wire goes in...what's it called?


Unfortunately, that coax connector  is almost certainly crimped onto a cable inside.  You might want to pull off the back panel to see if that internal cable is screwed onto another jack on the chassis. If so, you can disconnect that end and substitute another cable, they come in several different lengths and are not critical. Any electronics store will have them.
If it isn't equipped with a connector inside, you will need to have someone unsolder the defective cable and install a new one.

Coaxial input jack on the TV broken off so I cannot connect my coaxial cable from wall


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.
