Re: need to repair antenna jack
The antenna jack repair will depend on the type of parts required and the accessibility to the jack. Usually the jack is in integral part of the tuner module.
In any case this will take experience in TV servicing and will more than likely ordering the replacement part(s) from the manufacture rep, or finding a generic part(s) replacement.
The area of the antenna jack can be fairly critical since it is dealing with high frequency RF frequencies. It may be easy to de-tune some of the circuits when working in this area of the tuner. In some cases the complete tuner module may have to be replaced. I would suggest taking the set to a TV service center to have the job done properly.

To get HD channels you need to have a cable/satellite box that can receive HD channels AND you have to connect that box to the TV with either an HDMI cable or component jacks. A normal cable/satellite box won't work; neither will a coax antenna cable or consolidated video (yellow RCA) plug. Hope this helps!
If you are using an indoor Antenna: 1- the most probable reason would be the location of the antenna and TV in an area where the reception is very low. Indoors all houses are affected by the running electrical circuits which in turn generate magnetic field that together with the structure of the house obstruct or weaken the wave signals of wireless and TV reception. Also this issue may be aggravated by the vicinity you are live in. Where you are living may not have the optimum reception from some services including TV signals. Your best bet is to try moving the (Indoor) antenna closer to the outside (such as windows, or better to a balcony) and try all four directions of the house. 2- One other possibility, is the antenna jack being disconnected from one of its wires (or a de-solder) at an internal part of its circuit). This problem can be detected by trying another antenna that is working good when used with another TV (and preferably at a different location) thus testing for the possible weak signal at the same time. 3- The last possible issue is the antenna receptacle built onto the Tv set. This may have a problem of some element of it disconnected internally on the board or de-soldered.. If the Antenna is external, all the above points are still valid, but the probability is higher, for some hidden disconnection on the receptacle, the antenna plug or at the connection of the co-axial cable with the external antenna. (Once I found a co-axial cable with disconnections of its central copper wire within the protective insulating coat- probably due to defects in the plastic coat that had microscopic holes that allowed air and humidity into the central wire and caused it to corrode and have those discontinuities)..
Yes of course you do. It goes on the RF coaxial jack (the same one that cable TV would connect tto) labeled antenna. Don't let anyone sell you a special expensive "digital antenna" because digital TV uses the same frequencies that UHF has always used and thereby requires the same antenna, or at least the smaller portion of the older antennae.
antennas are not analog or digital, just VHF, UHF and they typically connect to a RF coaxial jack on the TVs rear panel. 75ohm silver round jack. Select in your TVs menus, AIR when you want over-the-air TV stations and do a new channel scan to pick up local channels.
The tv is repairable but usually the damage from storms is extensive and the bill will be stiff. Get the $250 and just buy a new tv. Next time when a storm comes unplug all electronic devices from all cables, or it will happen again.
What is your TV source? If you are looking for OTA (over the air) signals, you may need to modify your antenna setup. An external antenna rotated to the correct direction usually works best. See antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for details of what stations you may receive OTA. Antennaweb is much more conservative in the channel availability list than TVfool is. On both sites, enter your street adress for the details.
If you had a recent surge through your antenna, then you may have to repair/replace the TV tuner. (My household lost three CRT TVafter a nearby lightning strike.)
Cindy Wells (Antennaweb.org lists only my area as only getting 2 channels with an external antenna (one transmitter source - 10 miles away). We actually get more - the other channels are transmitted from ~30 miles away.)
The "shadow" indicates a failure either of the LCD controller, LCD connector, or in the worst case, the LCD itself. A loose connection between the LCD and the LCD controller can result in abnormal displays. Try tapping the back of the TV and check if the shadow can be affected. If it is affected, try cleaning the connector terminals with a soft-bristle brush and alcohol or lacquer thinner. If not, have it checked by a qualified technician to carry out the proper tests to determine which of the LCD controller or LCD the problem lies.
I have a Panasonic viera 32in lcd hd tv. I'm trying to hook up headphones but there's is no apparent audio output jacks. But there's is only one digtal output jack! is this the jack ? and if it is, what cables do I need to make the headphones work? or am I forced into by an amplifier
I am a service and repair technician for satellite phones, and we have a very large inventory of all parts associated with satellite phones including LCD screens, front and back housings, antenna socket housings and boards, PCI boards, keypad boards, data ports/charging ports, antennas, sim card readers, and more. We can also do electronic component repair such as resoldering of headset jacks, and power jacks. We support models Kyocera ss66k, 9500, 9505, 9505A, 9555 and more.
