Re: atenna plug pulled out of tv, how do i get a signal...

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?

Re: atenna plug pulled out of tv, how do i get a signal...

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, 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.

Check its main power supply regulator section for any loose solder terminals. Resolder all suspected solder terminals, by applying a little more fresh solder.

The TV has absolutely no volume, except if you are using headphones

Hi satisfy_2liv,
The fault was came from the headphone jack itself, when you connect the headset to this jack, it will open the internal contact to the speaker of the TV and you will hear the sound only in the headset. But the problem is, it will not get back to contact once you pull-out the headset to return the audio signal to the speakers. This may probably has a dirty contact or totally faulty. Bad solder joints is also to consider in that area. First you may spray contact cleaner to the jack while inserting and pulling the headset plug. If symptom still persist, check the board for bad solder joints. If the joints isn't the problem,replaced the earphone jack and your unit will back to normal again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

My power cord fell off. Took off the back of the

there is a small board with a small transformer . the plug is located next to that small transformer. if the cord originally came from the right hand side if you are looking at tv from the back. the plug is on that right board. if the tv cord came from the left side, the plug is located on the main board in the front of tv. the plug in both situations are the same, it is white in color and has 2 or three pins sticking straight up.

The plug to the tv broke off!

One way would be to go to a store that sells electrical parts and buy a replacement plug and install it.
The other would be to replace the whole cord, much more time consuming and probably a bit more expensive. I'd just go and buy a new plug.
