Reception/ jacks on the back of a SHARP L32 - X200 Cinema select
There is a jack labeled ANT/CABLE 75 above the coax jack. The jack is coated with what appears to be a thin coating of plastic. Got hurt at work and cant afford sattelite right now. A few local channels through an antenna is the other option. The coax jack is very loose and does not work any longer with an adapter and a long ribbon antenna. What can you tell me about this other jack?

Check the input jacks in the rear. Each should have a unique label. Pick one input that has cables connected to it. Note the input name. Follow the cables back to the device connected - DVD, BluRay, Cable / Satellite box, etc. Turn on the TV, and select the same input you noted above. Turn on the device connected to it (DVD, BluRay, Cable / Satellite box, etc.). If this fails, try again with a different device or connect the cable / satellite box to the antenna input and select ANT.
Check the back of your Sharp TV for the HDMI input. These
will be long, thin rectangular jacks labeled "HDMI." Most Sharp TVs will
include another label on those jacks with an input number ("Input 5,"
"Input 6" or the like). Remember that number. It will have a bearing
when you turn on the TV.
Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the input jack on the
Sharp TV and the other end to a compatible component such as an HD DVR
from your cable/satellite company or a Blu-Ray disc player. The TV won't
broadcast in HD if you can't connect these devices with an HDMI cable
(though it will still broadcast in standard definition using RCA cables
or S-video cables).
Turn on the TV and the requisite component (Blu-Ray, DVR).
Press the "Input" button on your remote. A list of signal
sources will appear on your screen ("Input 1," Input 2," etc.). Use the
cursor to maneuver down to the input number corresponding to the HDMI
outlet you just hooked up and press the "Input" button again.
Press the "Menu" button and maneuver the cursor to select
"Option." Go to "HDMI Setup" and press "Enter." Move the cursor up or
down to the desired item and hit "Enter" again. Then move the cursor
from side-to-side to select the proper setting. Hit "Enable" to allow
the Sharp TV to automatically recognize the HDMI signal and "Digital" to
get the proper audio signal from the HDMI cable. Then hit "Enter"
Examine the back of the your cable box and the back of your
Samsung HDTV. Note which cable jacks are of an identical size and color.
Those are the ones that can be used to connect the two devices. Samsung
HDTVs cluster all the jacks in a single panel near the power cord.
Look at the square rectangular boxes labeled "HDMI In."
These are for high-definition multimedia interface cables--combination
A/V cables that provide the highest possible image and sound clarity.
Look at the back of your cable box for an identical jack labeled "HDMI
Out." If you see one, connect the two jacks using an HDMI cable. If you
don't, you need to use another set of cables to hook up your cable box.
Check for a series of three round jacks labeled "Component
In" and color coded in red, green and blue. These are component video
jacks, which provide a good HD picture, but not as good as HDMI. If your
cable box has an identical set of "Out" jacks, use them to connect the
Look for a pair of red and white jacks (possibly connected
to a yellow one). These are audio RCA jacks. If you're using component
video cables to hook up your cable box, you will need to hook these two
up as well: Component video cables don't provide sound. Any cable box
that uses component video cables should also have "Out" jacks for RCA
Find the raised circular jack with a pinhole in the center
of a milky white plastic interior. This is the coaxial jack. Samsung
HDTVs label them "Ant In." Every cable box should have a corresponding
jack labeled "Out" or "Ant Out." If none of the other cable jacks on the
cable box match, use a length of coaxial cable to connect the TV to the
cable box through these two jacks. You can also use this connection to
hook the TV directly to the wall cable.
Turn on your TV and cable box, and set the TV to the input
jack connected to the cable box. You can do this by pushing the Menu
button on the remote, scrolling down to the "Input" option and pushing
"Enter." That will let you cycle through the various input options,
labeled by cable type (HDMI, component video). Press "Enter" again when
you reach the right component, then exit the menu. You should now be
able to watch TV as normal.
Except for the Headphone jack (mini-jack) and the coax audio, all of the audio jacks are audio IN. Which jack do you have your speakers connected to? The headphone jack is on the side next to the coax connection (ANT) and the coax audio out is at the bottom of that set of side jacks. The headphone mode should automatically cut the TV speakers. The coax audio out is set up by pressing Menu and then using the down arrow to highlight Audio. Then press the right arrow button to enter the submenu. Press the up or down arrow to reach SPDIF. Then you use the left and right menus to select PCM, Digital Dolby or OFF.
First, you'll want to make sure that her antenna has a coaxial cable (one of the thick round ones) coming from the antenna. Some older ones have a flat piece of plastic with two wires sticking out. These are less efficient, but if you have one, use a balun (a vhf-uhf matching transformer) to change to coax. You can google "balun" if you don't know what one looks like.
Next, you'll need a digital converter box (if you don't have one already). Connect one end of the coax cable to the antenna (or balun) and the other to the jack on the converter box labeled "ant. in." Finally, using another coax cable, connect one end to the jack on the converter box labeled "to tv" and the other end to the jack on the TV labeled "ant. in." Finally, depending on your converter box, you will probably need to "scan " for tv channels. Follow the setup instructions with the converter box to do this. If you don't have the instructions, try googling the converter box company and model number to find the users manual.
I hope this helps, and good luck!
1. Disconnect negative side of battery.
2. Wait at least 2-minutes to de-energize the airbag system
3. Remove the glove box from the dash.
4. There will be a coax cable towards the top of the opening. Disconnect the antenna cable lead.
5. Remove the right kick trim panel. There should be no screws just clips.
6. Loosen the rubber grommet insulator from the door hinge area. This is a rubber accordian style guard for wires located between the "A" pillar and the door.
7. Pull the antenna cable out of the dash area to the hinge area.
8. Jack up the front right of the vehicle. Support with Jack Stands. Do not use only the Jack! Use the jack as a back-up in case of Jack Stand failure.
9. Remove the right front tire.
10. Remove the right front wheel housing splash shield. There should be 3-push type retainers and one 10 mm bolt below the bumper.
11. Slide the plastic cover (on the base) up on the antenna mast.
12. Use a open end wrench to unscrew the antenna mast at the base and remove the antenna mast.
13. Remove the plastic cap from the base nut on the base and remove the base nut.
14. From underneath the fender: pull down the antenna base. And pull the cable towards you - out from the door hinge area into the fender area.
Good Luck! Installation is reverse of above.

I would be interested to know the model number of the camera. "Coax" jacks are usually only used for tuners. It is more possible that it is a BNC connection. If it truly is coax than they may have used the coax jack because an RCA style plug would come unplugged too easily while driving.
Just get an F (male or female depending on the connection) to RCA (female) adapter and an RCA cable and plug it into any composite (yellow) video input.
If it is BNC than get a BNC to RCA adapter.
Take the part into Radio Shack and they will have the right adapter.
You need a cable box if you have channels that are digital (mustly the channels above 74). If you do not have those higher channels you can use a vcr or a dved player that has a tuner in it. Put the cable into the vcr and then use the Video and Audio jacks (A/V jacks) and the back of the vcr that say "OUTPUT" and hook them up to the same type of jacks on the back of the tv that say "INPUT".
You are losing a VERY small amount of signal using the transformer. It won't even be noticeable I'm sure if you switch to the coax in but the fewer connections you go through the less the chance of a bad connection. Use regular " Ant. In " coax connection or " RF in" whichever the wording is on the back of your set. Good Luck!
