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?

Do HDMI ports on the back of the tv go bad? if so, how do you fix them?


If you have more than one HDMI connection try the others first. If it is an intermittent connection try cleaning the connector out first with compressed air in the can and make sure it is dry before powering the set back up again. If the HDMI is not working and you have tried different HDMI sources the HDMI receiver board in the TV might be bad. The connectors usually don't fail unless there is allot of stress placed upon them by to short of a cable going to them.

Loose UHF connector


That connector is just press-fit into a metal shield around the set's tuner. It's commonly broken loose by overtightening the cable connection or tripping over the cable and yanking on it. In bad cases it can be broken completely off the set. It really doesn't "leak" anything but can cause a poor picture and allow interference to get in.

The connector can be soldered back into place with the aid of a suitable-size soldering gun. You should be able to find a TV servicer who still makes house calls. With labor and trip charge, I'd guesstimate around $100. The shop I worked for got $72 for this repair, and that was nearly 10 years ago. It is also possible for do-it-yourselfers to make this repair if they have the soldering skills. But even if you pay someone it's still less than the cost of a new set.

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.

TV Cable connector broken


If the tuner is not damaged many shops will replace it for you for $50. If you want to try to do it yourself you will have to remove the back unsolder the tuner and remove the sheilds then solder in a new RF connector and reassemble. If that helps let me know.

If you are decent with soldering iron you can repair it yourself. Remove the back, and remove the signal board from the unit. Unsolder the Tuner from the board( If I've lost you already, call a TV shop for repair) Remove the shields on the tuner and inspect for damage to the tuner itself. If the board is in good shape, replace the RF connector with RCA # 215543. you'l have to unsolder the old ends connector ( the wire thats still there broken ) from the board, then attach the new end, and solder to the board. Then using high heat, solder the Connector to the tuner housing. Replace tuner on board, hook everything back up, and you should be in business.

Cable connector broken


You can buy replacement antenna jacks for this. What you have to do is remove the tuner and it's shields, then unsolder the little tab off the board of the tuner which is what remains when they break off. Then you can resolder the new jack in place and the center pin back to the board of the tuner.

No instrution sheet that I know of. Those "F" connectors are most of the time part of the "tuner", if so just take off the tuner (unsolder it) and pop off the two sides of the "tuner can" and straighten the "can". Take the "F" connector with a small screw driver and scrape the side of the connector to make it shinny and so the solder will stick to it, and do the same to the "tuner can". Use a good hot iron to solder it back on. Do NOT get the "F" connector so hot that the inside of the connector will melt. The center conductor of the "F" connector will have to be soldered back into its hole as well.
