Cable connector broke off at solder for GE 27GT722

Movers broke off my cable connector on the tv. The main piece was still attached to the cable plug. I can push it back in to the hole, and the cable works fine. How do I fix this without having to take it to a repair shop that wants to charge 150? My friend knows how to solder and has the stuff to do with it. Do you have step by step instructions on how to go it?

Common problem Order 215543 from a company such as Union Electronics..1-800-648-6657 Use only the orginal, the replacement melts to quicky from the heat of the solder. They don't have a minimum order. Also make sure all the tuner shield grounds are resoldered. Be careful. easy to solder short.

Brought a GE model 27gt722 tv...can not pick up all channels on cable. Usually once you hook up cable wire to tv cable is automatically on ..at least that is how it was on old tv


Depending on the cable company, some like Comcast have gone mostly digital meaning when you connect the TV directly to cable without a cabe box you will only get around 35 channels. The only way to get around that is to get a cable box. If you have Comcast service already they offer what they call a DTV cable adaptor which will allow you to get most cable channels. These DTV adaptors in most areas are free for the first two per household. I hope that helps : )

I got a sanyo tv model DS31590 that the cable fitting is broken off i got two more with the same problem how can i fix it without changing the main board at the cost of a new Tv


As long as the tuner that the connector plugs into is not bad/broken then you can re-attach the connector by soldering it to the casing
file or sand both surfaces before soldering and attach a cable to the connector to help dissipate heat while soldering(so the plastic center of connector is not melted) I some times use cold spray (a can of computer duster turned upsidedown) to cool the joint quickly, immeadiatly after soldering.
Good surface preperation and a hot soldering iron (45W or more) are key to doing a good job

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.

Main cable connector broke off back of TV


Maybe so. Sometimes the connector is fed by an RCA connector which just plugs in inside the TV and sometimes it needs a little solder work. Sometimes you have to solder on the circuit board and if it's a multi-layer board you want an expert to do it but from the manual it doesn't look like that is the case with your TV.
I'm pretty sure Radio Shack stocks such connectors with maybe a little hardware to get the fit right.

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.
