My cable connector will not recognize the cable box. TV works fine with DVD player but cable connector had to be wiggled sometimes in order to work. Now nothing. Can the connector be replaced easily? Is it something I can do myself?

Check for the cables to the cable box/reciever. What type of cable are you using for connection with the cable box(HDMI,RCA component cables)? Your tv is fine as it is working with the dvd player. The issue is with the cables connecting the cable box or from the cable company. Call them to get more information about this issue(maybe weak signals)
Please ask for further clarifications.

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.
All you have to do is connect those yellow red and white cables to one of your tv inputs in the back either video 1 2 or 3 and you should have both your dvd player and cable working. Make sure your black cable is connected through coaxial in the back of your tv and the yellow white and red cables from the dvd player to video 1 in the back of your tv if anything else just let me know...
