Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
I snapped some thin metal piece that connect to the coaxial cable and now we're not able to get cable on the tv...hubby is definetely not impressed...thanks for any help...
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.
