Can my TV be fixed?

My problem is that the cable ready piece in the back of the tv, where the cable goes into, came out. I am wondering if there is like a box or something I can get to put the cable into then like rca jacks or something to the tv? Its still a nice tv but I cant afford for someone to charge me to fix it unless its cheap.

How to set up cable Tv for sharp 32F630

If you have no other components and the TV is cable ready,the cable just screws or slips onto the appropriate connector on the back of the TV. If you have any components then it becomes a little more difficult. IF it is not cable ready then you will have a cable box that will feed you TV with either composite video or s-video and stereo sound. If you have a stereo system it will go between the cable and the tv again feeding the tv with the appropriate cables.

I have an older Broksonic TV that has a built in DVD player.

Under the menu settings, make sure tv is set to CATV and not Air. CATV is for cable.
Then look for tuner options or channel edit options.
Find the "autoprogram" option and select it. It will scan and remember all available channels

I have a 32 in sony trinitron and i do not know

You need a matching transformer, or 'balun'.

Any home electronics store will have these. $3-$5.

Now, if this TV does not have a cable connector on the back, there is a good chance you will not be able to receive many of the channels (not a cable-ready TV).

Could be a bad TV or it could be loose TV connections feeding to the back of the TV. Any poor or loose connections in the cable leads causes a loss of signal strength to the TV.
Old cables and connection supplying TV Cable to the house or apartment can cause this problem also.

Sanyo tv making high pitch noise from loose cable connector

The noise is coming from the fly-back transformer. By moving the cable connector you move the main board. Unplug the TV and remove the back. The transformer has a red wire going to a rubber cup at the top of the picture tube. Looking at the transformer you will see a dough nut shape with a metal piece going through it .. Drive some tooth picks between the dough nut and the metal core. That should reduce or stop the ringing.
