My daughter is having the same problem with the same model tv.. I had a bit of trouble finding the manual for that tv at the RCA web-site --- but I did find it at Amazon.

The URL for the pdf version of the manual is:

Assuming you have the remote for the tv, there are instructions in the manual for setting up the relationship between the DVD player and the TV.

(The URL for the TV on Amazon is: The link to the manual is toward the bottom, in the Product Details section.)

As long as the PC board inside the tuner module is not broken, then the set is fixable. This is a tricky repair however and probably not a DIY. The part costs around $4. A local repair shop should be able to fix this for you for a reasonable labor cost.

The cable connector has been broken off. is there any way of fixing this without replacing the entire board

With most tv's I've serviced, the cable connector is connected directly to the tuner module. The tuner module may be damaged beyond repair, depending upon how much physical force was applied to the cable connector. I would take it to a reputable repair shop and let them provide you a honest estimate of repair. They may be able to resolder the cable connector to the tuner module.

The cable connection on my tv broke off how can I connect back to the cable

On most TV sets, the cable connector (also called an F-connector) is just press-fitted into the metal housing of the tuner (which selects the channels). It's not very strong mechanically and is pretty easily broken by tripping over the cable, moving the TV if the cable is too short, or often by cable technicians who overtighten the cable connection with a wrench.

The good news is that this can be fixed. There are two ways. The simple method is to replace the tuner. It's quick but costly as a new tuner may run $100. The second way is to replace the broken-off F-connector. On some sets it's possible to do this without removing the tuner, but not always. This repair may take a little more labor time, but saves the cost of the tuner.

Either way, this is a repair that's best left to a professional. Without the soldering skills and equipment needed, it's possible to do major damage to the TV and tuner circuit boards. I would recommend getting an estimate for the repair from a shop in your area. Yes, there are still places that fix TVs, but they are getting scarce.

Another possible "fix" is to forget about using the TV cable connection and use a VCR or DVR to tune the channels, and just use the TV's video and audio inputs. It doesn't repair the TV, but it gets you back onto the cable.

I hope you've found this helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!

Cable input connector broken off

Usually the connector or at least a new connector can be put back on. If there is minor damage to the board, a tech can repair it in most cases.

I have an RCA F36676ET that has a broken cable connection. TV works fine with DVD player but satellite connection not recognized. Can the cable connection be replaced? Can I do it myself?

If you mean the cable connector is broken off, then yes, that can be replaced. A company called MCM Electronics sells replacement connectors, but the repair requires soldering skills. Incorrectly done, the repair attempt can create even more problems. I suspect your satellite receiver has A/V outputs like the DVD player. Why not connect the receiver the same way as the DVD player and forget about the cable connection? You'll get improved picture and sound that way. If the set has only a single set of A/V inputs, you can cheat and use "Y-adapters" available at Radio Shack to connect the two sources to the same jacks, or you can get an A/V switch to do it.

RCA F31671SE Turns on nothing else.

Do you have sound with the blank screen? Some RCA sets had a screwy design problem where an s-video signal wouldn't show up unless you had a cable plugged into the normal video connector as well, so you might give that a try (that is, plug in both regular and s-video cables from the source, then select the s-video input). The broken-off cable connector is repairable (replacement connectors are available) but it means soldering both large and small connections in tight spots, so it might be worth calling a service technician if you are planning to keep the set.
