double check your cable routing. The cable that goes into the tv from a satellite box should be "out to tv" or something like that. If you have an old vcr laying around you can test that on channel 3 to the tv. Just in case something broke in the tuner circuit. Hope that helps.
If the plug broke off, it should still be connected by wire to the components inside, and therefore still useable. Coaxial is very tough and would be hard to break unless cut. But if it did, I would recommend having taking it in to get serviced because coaxial wires are a pain in the behind to attach to their sockets.
With the right tools and know how it is a very quick fix, so don't let anyone rip you off.
if the remaining piece was not part
of the PC board , which is light yellow
theres a good chance with a soldering iron
and a new female coax from radio shack
you could do it . or pay a shop 75.00 to
reinstall one for you.
It would probably cost more to have someone fix it than just replace it.If you or someone you know can use a solder iron you might get lucky and resolder conections, but most times its too hard to get at the circuit board to affect repairs and the connector usually gets mangled so bad it won't fit right anymore. Or you can try to avoid using this connection and use a different input. But you would need either a cable/satellite box or vcr (with the same kind of connection that broke on TV) and change the input used on the tv to the new connection such as 3 wire AV connection (with the yellow,red and white wires)
How are you connecting up your tv? also getting new IF connector should not cost more then 100.00 at the most and thats to much .also what are you using for tuner source?you have to connect to vcr,satellite or cable box using externel jacks,use back av jacks yellow video- red&white audio,then you will be using channel 3 or 4 on tv to change channels thru your vcr,satellite,or cable box which ever one you are using for tuner.If you have it connected right your set should work.let me know if you need any more help with this.ThankYou for using FixYa and Have a Nice Day.
ANGLS186-YES YOU CAN RESOLDER THE ANT. IN COAX CONECTION BUT KNOW YOU MUST FIRST SOLDER THE CENTER WIRE OF COAX TO TUNER BD. THEN CAREFULLY INSERT COAX BACK INTO ORIGINAL POSITION.THE EASIER SOLUTION IS TO USE A VCR OR CABLE BOX HOOKED TO YOUR SETS' VIDEO IN PORT AND CHANGE CANNELS W.THAT COMPONENT.JOE TV
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.
