Toshiba tv 32ax60 3 thin wires disconnected

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.

    Hi tvjoseph, yes, i think it is the RF converter assembly.. there are 3 threaded connections on the outside, not damaged, but it was pulled right out through the tv, broke the plastic tv case.. and on the inside were 3 very thin wires, blue, yellow, red... tv has never been worked on.. was never moved since original purchase 7 yrs ago.. i'm confident i could solder those 3 wires back but just don't know where they go...

    i can attach a small video clip and post on youtube if that would help you identify the problem better? thanks

    wires are for switching voltage to converter.  wont work with out same. back of converter may be marked b+ next to posts. you will need volt meter to idenify hot wires. if you have any repair shops near they may have your tv look at same. the 2 connedtions with insulated feed thrus are for b+ metal case is for wire with no b+ idenify wires with b+ hook to feed thrus if dozent work reverse wires. 

  • joe wertenberg Dec 05, 2008

    yes vidio great! hot wires go to insulated feed  thrus ceramic bubble  on connecter 

  • joe wertenberg Dec 05, 2008

    another way the 2 connections with high reistence to ground are for b+ need ohm meter.

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.

Toshiba cf32h40 started last week the pic would go down to one thin line i would hit it on the side and it would come back ,but now thin line comes back when i hit and then goes away so i took off the back...

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 .............. vishnuswamy_25.jpg

Cable female adaptor is missing

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.

Cable cord connector

Greetings Florie12,

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.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

No power in my toshiba

It's likely that it has pulled inside the TV. If you are confident enough, check inside. (WITH POWER DISCONNECTED), if not take to a service centre.

Sound is ridiculously low

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.
good luck

Bad connections in tuner. If your really careful, lots of very small parts, you can resolder the cracked solder ground connections to the metal box and metal shields.
