Hi, I mistakenly pulled out my tv while the cable were still connected.. the result is a small silver box, almost like a cable splitter, around 3 inches by 2 inches by 1/2 half.. with 3 connection cable connections has been pulled right out the back of the TV... the part number is WSA2170-0007R 811YA RSU 133X5...
The problem is there are 3 very thin wires, blue, yellow and redi...these wires were soldered onto the back of the small silver box.. i can see where they became disconnected but i am not sure where each wire should be connected... can you help..? thanks.

Re: Toshiba tv 32ax60 3 thin wires disconnected
Belive your referring to rf converter assembly. entire unit can be replaced or if threaded end pulled out can be repaired. dont understand 3 wires unless worked on previously. avg shop prob min bench to repair. .

Most likely the tuner or connections to it.
The tuner is the small silver box that the cable screws on to.
The most obvious connection to check is the cable.
Take it off and put it back on.
Since this TV has to be connected to something else to get a picture, you can use the audio and video inputs
Just put the TV on AUX instead of channel 3, and change the channels with the cable box/ converter the same as you always have.
that silver box is called TV tuner (see picture ) ............ but in your case that is not the problem ......... after 4 or 5 yrs (depending on usuage ) in some TVs on mainboard & CRT tube's circuit board at some soldering joints cracks develops ... then due to loose contact TV behaves as you have described ........ when you are hitting that lightly on its side then these cracks at soldering joints are getting connected temporarly & for few seconds or minutes you are getting normal picture ....... so solution is most of the soldering joints on mainboard & on CRT circuit board has to be resoldered ....... only good tv service engineer can do this without shorting joints or damaging components..... so that silver box ( TV tuner ) is not the problem because when it gets deffective then you will get picture that comes when tv is switched on ---- usually it will be blue screen ......& also if you connect dvd you will get picture normally ...only thing is that you won't get picture from cable or antenna ..............
The small metal box is the tuner. The tuner has to be removed to replace the broken off RF connector. The connector has to be soldered to the tuner housing (metal box) and the leg of the connector has to be soldered to the circuit board, board has to be checked for cracks or if it is broken. If board is damaged the tuner will have to be replaced, if its available.
This unfortunately is a common issue that happens when moving televisions with the coaxial connection (the silver connector). Normally the best way to get this repaired is to bring it in to a local repair facility. I can't speak on the costs but they should be nominal, as long there wasn't any other internal components that were damaged.
Another repair option might be to purchase a digital converter box for your television as long as you have Audio/Video inputs. With the pending conversion to digital broadcasts this would be killing two birds with one stone.
if it is a stereo tv, there should be rca jacks on the back of the tv [red,white yellow] try connecting the rca outputs to a stereo system and see if the volume is any different.there might be a loose connection to the tv speakers inside.if you have a cable box hooked up to your tv, check the connections in back. you can also try bypassing the cable box by connecting the cable wire directly into the tv to see if it's the tv. if it is the cable box try unplugging it for a minute then hook it up again.i had the same problem with my cable box. hooking it up to a stereo system sounds like a pain, but at least you will have sound.
