The TV itself is good as new, but the problem is the connector between the TV and the cable, where you screw the cable on, Has come out. My dog was being playful and ran behind the TV, snagging on the Cable cord and pulling it, as well as the connecting part, out of the tv. I've since lost the connector and the small wire that was soldered to it, but is the TV still repairable? Or should I just trash it?

Since you did not mention HDMI 2, I assume you have that connected to something else, and that is working properly. The following procedure is based on that assumption.
First, turn off everything connected to the set, and the TV itself. Disconnect the HDMI cable from whatever is going to HDMI 2 (leave the TV end alone for now) and connect it to the PS3. If the PS3 shows up on the TV, the problem is most likely a bad cable. To verify, turn off the PS3 and the TV, then move the known good HDMI cable to either HDMI 1 or 3. If the PS3 works on those also, the HDMI cable you had originally connected to the PS3 is defective. I know there are some bad ones out there; there is at least one lot with a right-angle connector on one end and a straight connector on the other that has a very high failure rate.
If the PS3 does not work with a known good cable to HDMI 2, then the PS3 has a problem. Try using a component (RGB) or composite (yellow end) connection to narrow down what the issue is.
If HDMI 1 and 3 do not work with a known good cable or any input source (DVR or cable box), then the HDMI switching circuit inside the TV is defective. Since the set is "new" that would be a warranty issue.
This sounds like a cable issue. Assuming your Dish receiver is connected to your TV with a HDMI cable (ends are rectangular and the connector is trapezoid in shape), you can first attempt to switch HDMI ports on the back of your TV. If you get the same message, you can try flip the cable end for end -- plug the TV end into the receiver and the receiver end into the TV (I know, sounds silly, but has worked for me). Next is a new (better -- don't get a $5 cable, most good HDMI cables start close to $20 and up depending on length).
Now if you happen to be connecting via a "standard" TV cable (RG 6), first make sure that the cable is screwed on snuggly (no wrench needed, just finger tight). Next is to get a new cable.
Disassemble rear panel, check all ground wires and connectors.
UNPLUG TELEVISION. While off, reseat every connector you can find on the back of the unit (unplug and plug in one at a time every single jack/cable connector you can see).
PLUG IN TELEVISION. With power on, carefully loosen (one quarter to 3/4 turn should do it) and then tighten every screw which has a cable attached to it (ground screws) and see if that fixes the picture as you are tightening the screws.
BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT TOUCH ANY OTHER PART OF THE TV WITH THE SCREW DRIVER WHILE YOU ARE TOUCHING SCREWS. Could electrocute yourself.
I had a similar issue as well as blotchy screen and this appeared to have resolved the issues.
The incomming broadcasting signal cable connector are been standard,since the late 80 til now,why doesn't fit,is a mystries to me.U have cable or satalite dish services wright?Call their customer service,they'll send out a Tv tech. to check it out for u.
On the back of the cable box there should be 2 coaxial screw on connectors. One should be labelled "In from Cable" and the other should be "Out to TV". Screw the cable comming from the wall into the "In from Cable" connector and get a short piece of cable to go from the "Out to TV" down the the coaxial connector on the TV. Turn on the cable box. Now tune the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 and you should have a picture.
This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc.
Go to the source of your cable signal connector .
Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires.
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.
you need to replace your wall cable outlet. This can be purchased at any Radio Shack or Home Depot store. You will find two mounting screws , remove them and you will have access to the junction box. If the cable system was installed in the proper manner you will find a double male connector attached to the face plate by a single securing nut. Remove this nut and replace the double male connector. simple job, hope this was a help to you.
Hi, it sounds like ya most probably gonna haveta resolder the Cable Connection Socket internally.. they often fracture, OR perhaps it is the Actual Cable Connection Plug itself?.. maybe you need to remake this input connection? Indeed it sounds as if the Earth Shielding is making bad contact...
