Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My TV has a broken cable port. It looks like I can buy a new F-Type connector and solder it back on but I cannot find wher the ground goes. Since the part costs about a buck is it worth it to try and fix it?

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 input jack bronken off


Actually I just repaired one of these "similar" units. If you remove the backing of the tv, unpluged of course, Theres a panel facing you if you are looking at the right side of the TV. This panel pops off easily with a light prying motion all around. You'll see where the connector broke off and can solder it back together with a small pin type tip. Solder the center pin to the center probe first,hold in place with needle nose pliers. 2 people are better than one at this. Then lay down agood bead of solder around the perimeter of the connector. Clean up any solder that may have dropped and put it back together, you'll be ready to go in about one hours time. Let me know how it goes!!!

This can be soldered back into the tuner if the board in the tuner is not broken. If you need a new connector any electronics supply store will carry it.

Broken Antenna Port


If you have already identified where the connection was on the board you will have to access the board to be able to solder back to the points where the old connector was. Once you have identified the two solder points (One should go to ground and the other if you can with the tv on touch it and see if a picture tries to come in or get rid of the snow). Then buy a matching transformer from radio shack or Home Depot, Lowes. Normally this would go on the outside antenna. But you want to take it and clip and strip the ends that have the forks. Solder this to the board, one to ground and the other to the point that would have been center on the old broken piece. This will have a 72 ohm or a connection that your antenna will connect to.

Broke the piece where the cable wire goes in...what's it called?


Unfortunately, that coax connector  is almost certainly crimped onto a cable inside.  You might want to pull off the back panel to see if that internal cable is screwed onto another jack on the chassis. If so, you can disconnect that end and substitute another cable, they come in several different lengths and are not critical. Any electronics store will have them.
If it isn't equipped with a connector inside, you will need to have someone unsolder the defective cable and install a new one.

Getting clear audio to televisions from a soundboard


I think you should buy a video sender. It will take audio from your audio console and send wireless to a free channel to any free TV channel. No cables!

Here's one on ebay:

Cable Connector inside TV


Unless you know how to sholder well and know how to do an isolation test on the set after its repaired I would let a pro do it My friend as I've seen it a hundred times. A peep will simply hook up a connector to the set and ground the connector or what looks like a ground and as soon as that set is pluged into an ac outlet and a cable or sat line is attached KAPOWWWWEEYYY.. It smokes and you end up blowing out the bridge rectifiers aong with all sorts of things. Now dont get me wrong please as you can repair set if and only if you wanna take that chance by simply taking a piece of coax cable with a connector on one end and soldering the center wire onto the broken wire that came off the connector and then soldering the outside or sheild wire to the place where the broken connector was attached if at all possible BUT I repeat this is not a good way to do this. Good luck
