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.

Do you have a cable box or satilite box? You can come out of the box with the video output and into the tv and use it on video1 or whatever...and use it that way. Also a vcr will work the same way. Then your using the t.v. as a monitor and changing stations with the box. That's an easy "get-around" You just have to be careful when fixing the broken connector with a substitue cable. Some antenna inputs are isolated from ground, so if you use another cable, you will blow out the T.V. The isolator is usually a small 1 inch square box the connector came out of, then a small cable attaching to the tuner. If the connector was attached to the tuner itself, then you need a new tuner or a repairman to solder a new connector on. Don't try and solder one on yourself. I've yet to see that work be anyone other than a repairman. You could change the tuner yourself if you can solder somewhat well. Good-luck.

My tilt steering wheel lever broke on my 2003 Oldsmobile Alero?


If you can't get a used one from a breaker (not sure what you call them in the USA, in the UK they are breakers or scrap yards), could you cut a piece of thin (2 or 3 mm?) plastic or metal and epoxy/screw it to the broken pieces on the side you can't see?

My son trip over the cable cord and pulled out the cable connector, were you connect the cable cord.


  • Using a wire cutting tool, cut and remove the outer sheath of the coaxial cable approximately 1/2-inch down from the end of the cable. Take care not to cut too deep or you will damage the aluminum sheeting and perhaps even the plastic wire insulation. Peel back the aluminum sheeting so it wraps around the outer sheathing and remove about 1/4 inch of the white plastic wire insulation using the wire cutting tool to expose the thin cable wire.
  • Attaching Connector
  • Slide the ferrule ring, which is the metallic piece used to hold the connector on the cable, onto the coaxial cable. Push the connector onto the cable so the white plastic wire insulation rests up against the inside of the connector. Slide the ferrule ring forward so it covers the bottom end of the coaxial connector.
  • Finishing
  • Crimp the ferrule ring tightly around the wire and the connector. You may notice that some of the aluminum sheeting that you pulled down sticks out of the bottom of the ferrule ring. Trim the sheeting before using the cable.

    Input cable piece broke off akai pt5499hd


    The coaxial input can be soldered back in. You will need a new one however. Sometimes the internals in the tuner (where coaxial goes) may be damaged when coaxial connection breaks out. If that is the case a tech may charge more money. But just to replace the connection should be relatively inexpensive.

    Broken coax connection on back of unit


    If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

    All you need is:
    1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
    1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
    1 - coaxial coupler
    2 - small wire nuts

    electrical tape

    Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
    & remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

    Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

    Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

    Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.

    Not to be rude, but, if you already know what's broke, fix it!!! Usually, if it's just the plastic line, just slip a piece of rubber hose over it. I use fish tank air hose for this, sometimes securing both ends with thin tie-wire.
