Question about Curtis-Mathis CM19011 TV
So the cord was plugged in and it got pulled out pulling the plug unit with it. how do i now use this as a TV, it will work with other inputs using audio/video plugs, but it has no s video plug. So i can play games or watch videos but no cable television. Any solutions? Help!
I was glad to see the question posted, but I am not sure the answer is specific to the question. It says "You need to unsolder the tuner from the board and remove the side cases". The cable/antena connection has fallen out. In my case there is no way around the problem, as I do not have any other connection. Is there a way to reinstall the connector?

It has always amazed me how many "F" connectors get pulled out of tuners. I know because I've replaced hundreds, usually successfully, saving the cost of a new tuner. You need to unsolder the tuner from the board and remove the side cases. If the tuner board is not damaged beyond repair, (if it is you have to get creative), a new unit can be soldered in place. Put everything back together and you will be in buisness. New "F" connectors can be purchased from MCM Electronics at www.mcminone.com, part #215543 for $2.50. I always use a new connector as the old ones are usually trashed. Reliability is compromised if you don't use a new one. Technically you do not need the cable hookup since you have composite inputs. For my money I would just hookup a VCR (with a tuner) coming out of the VCR composite jacks into the TV composite jacks and use the tuner on the VCR leaving the TV in Aux, or whatever they call the composite inputs, and call it a day. It's you're choice but using a VCR tuner is faster, easier, cheaper and if you want to play a VHS tape you're already hooked up! If you are a traditionalist and want the TV 100% remember to be safe while working on it. Good luck whichever way you go.
