Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

5 Answers

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

The input jack coming out of my TV has broken off and I cannot attach my cable coming from the wall to the TV to get cable channels. Can this piece be replaced and is it something I can do? I am pretty good with electronics and if it is just a matter of getting the composite piece and plugging in into a slot and putting the panel back on the TV, I can do this. Tell me if it is way too complicated for me so I can have a service person to take care of it or should I call RCA, get the repair peice ordered thru the mail? Thanks Oyama

    My Coaxial cable broke and i dont wanna shell out alot of money to fix it. I heard about a piece of tech that just broadcasts the channels through the component inputs on the back (Yellow, Red, & White inputs). does such a thing even exist and if so what is the name and estimate price?

    yellow input cord broke off inside the hole can it be pulled out cleverly

    Although somewhat helpful, I found the above description odd in that the yellow cable was mentioned. I have a TV with the coaxle threaded male input has simply been nroken out of the small metal box. The hole is clean. I bought the F connector at Radio shack as the second post mentions. My only questions, are, am I going to get shocked, and do I need to remove the 1/2" X 2" X 2" box from the circuit board? The F connector has two nuts, does one need to be on the inside of that box? Whre does the other go, just outside of that box, or on back panel?

    for females who don't solder or have excessive tools i need to find a vcr that excepts a screw type hex connector for the co ax cable.

  • jmarble Apr 27, 2009

    I also have the same problem, but my input jack is really loose so when the tv is moved the picture goes out. But when the picture is good we get a static sound on certain stations. I am wondering can the whole tuner be replaced without calling a repairman? Do you also know the part number that I may need? Thankyou Chuck Marble

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.

This kind of repair ussually involves soldering because this part is normally attached to the tuner,you can also use a vcr to conect the signal and change the channels from the vcr this way you dont have to get it repair,the imput of the tv has to be changed to EXT.1 or EXT.2 and use the RCA imputs.Your call! Good luck.

If your cable looks like the one in BigLou79's photo *and* broke off from the coaxial end & not from the BNC connector, there are coaxial couplers that require no soldering (they screw on), however these couplers may or may not work, depending on where the break is and how bad the coaxial cable was damaged. I'm merely suggesting an easier more economical fix that may or may not be a perminate fix. Like someone else said, it's up to you how far you want to go. Just trying to give more options! Worked for me when a coax cable connector broke on my RCA Rear Projection TV. Good luck!

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.

Hello

Change the channel to ensure the problem isn't with the current station broadcast. Check the channel at a later time to see if the broadcast problem is resolved.

The type of programming you are trying to watch determines the proper input source. Press the "Input" button on the remote control to change to the proper input source. For example, if the source is a cable or satellite service, press the "Input" button until "TV" mode is selected. A component device, such as a DVD player, will operate on a different input source, such as "Video-1."

Check the coaxial cable, which connects your television broadcast service provider to your television. You need to securely connect the coaxial cable to the "ATSC/Digital Cable In" jack on the back of the television, and the other end to the wall jack. If the cable appears damaged, replace it with a new cable.

If you are using a component device as the source of your programming, ensure the component cables are plugged into the "Video Input" and "Audio Input" jacks on the back of the television or that the S-Video cable is plugged into the "S-Video Input" jack on the back of the television. Connect the other end of the cables to the "Video Output" and "Audio Output" jacks or "S-Video Output" jack on the component device.

Coaxial hookup broke off. Can i use an s cable through vcr? need instructions.


If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!

Coaxial cable


Most newr TV's do not come with a coaxial hookup anymore, you either need to use RCA cables for Audio and Video, Component Video, S-Video Jack, Digital Audio Jack or HDMI Input.

What cables do i use to connect to the tv...the vcr has yellow and white areas to connect and the antenna....it tapes, but i do not get a picture when i play it


First off, you need to hook up audio and video by using either an A/V cable or a coaxial to connect the VCR player to the TV, for the A/V cable, the yellow, white and red jacks are coded, match the jacks up with the wires, put one end of the A/V cable to the VCR player OUTPUT jacks and the other end to the INPUT jacks in back of TV. For the coaxial cable, connect the OUT TO TV or OUTPUT jack of the VCR to the ANT. IN or INPUT JACK of the TV. Connect the power cables of both units to wall outlets, and then you're set. Good luck to you!

Trying to hook vcr up to an emerson telivision


Are you trying to connect with coaxial, or RCA jacks, If you have the Yellow, white, and red jacks on both you Emerson TV, and your whatever brand VCR, all you have to do is connect using the color to color ports. Sometimes the ports on tv or vcr are only mono, so instead of having 3 jacks there will only be 2. Yellow for video, and red and/or white for Audio. If you are using coaxial cables, which aren't hardly on the newer models. This also depends if you want to just playback or record as well. If you want to record with your vcr, you need to put the source coaxial,(From wall), and put that to the input of your VCR, it may be in the input of your tv, so you would take that out and put it in the vcr, and you will need a separate coaxial cable to put from your VCRs output jacks into the input of your tv. That would also put your input channel on 3 or 4. If you could tell me the way you wanted to connect, I could tell you better. Hope this helps.

Coaxial to component


You may need an extra HD tuner for your TV. The only problem that you may have would be the original signal running through the coaxial cable. If it's just regular TV stations, the tuner should fix the problem.
