T.v. connector from cable

I need a connector, mine stripped while taking off and connecting another t.v.

I just moved 3 t.v's around and had no problem connecting the other two, now this one will not go on.
Now, will I have to cut the cable wire and replace with another connector, because this one does not look like it will attach again, I have tried several times here and it looks like it is stripped.

Usually, the whole tuner has to be replaced if there is a missing/stripped coax connection. The connector is "pressed" into place on the tuner section at the factory, and it is nearly impossible to replace one and have it stay on. A lot of people try to solder them on (which works for a while), but the high heat that is needed to solder such a large connector to a large surface area is usually a bit too much, endangering the inductors inside.

The solution I suggest is to use one of the "snap-on" plugs. The are thread-less quick-connect plugs that are available at radio shacks, wal-marts, etc. They are very inexpensive, and will save you a lot of grief.

If it is too loose when you put it on, then just gently compress the outside "holder" portion of connector to make it a tighter fit.

Hope this helps you, and saves you some money!

    Oh, and they thread onto a regular coax plug on one end, and push onto the back of the TV on the other.

Air bag warning light keeps coming on

There are cables for the Airbag's under each front seat. Disconnect the battery from the car (It's safer, because messing with the cables while battery is connected could deploy airbags and cause a hefty repair bill). The connector/ cables under the seats like to get loose if you move your seats around a lot or if you got the 3-door Version. Get some electrical contact cleaner and clean the connectors and it cables. and assure that they are connected properly. When you connect the battery back on the error should be cleared. If the airbag light comes bag on, check the connector inside the roof of the glovebox, that one likes to get loose as well. It should be a orange or blue connector if I remember correctly.
Best of luck,

I have a whirlpool inglis dryer that is about 5 years older and I have a 3 prong electrical cord, in the back of the dry were the electrical cable connects into the dryer (There is 3 connection locations)...

Hi johnebrenner...
Most likely cause of the wire being burned is a loose and arching connection.
I would recommend that you replace your existing cord and wire with new ones and make sure to tighten your connections very tight, but do not strip the screws by over tighting..
Please take time to rate me

The piece that you attach the cable wire is missing on the TV. Can this be replaced so that I can screw on the cable wire?

Hi 30273a,
Yes the connector that was missing was the RG-6 F-connector. It is better to buy the screw type rather than the crimp type because it will needed a crimping tool to connect to your cable wire.
Here is a sample picture of the connector.

You must strip the cable wire and ensure that the braided wire around it will be securely attached to the body of the F-connector to have a best quality of picture.


RG-6 F-connector is widely available at your local electronics supply.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

I had just bought an old sanyo tv, it didnt come with the av connections, but when i seem to hook the vcr or the cable to the port in the back its not giving nothing but static..even on channels 3 and 4

hi, have someone watch the tv while you wiggle that connector around in the back while its hooked up to the vcr or cable is plugged in and channel on 3 or 4 see if you get any luck, use a little pressure to move the connector. This is a common problem. It will probably need to have the connector resoldered to the board.

None of the ear pieces work only if I move around the Jack plug thing

sounds like the jack is faulty tghe cable has been pulled and the wire probably stripped off connectors. if you can access a electronics or audio shop purchase a new jack these are cheap and you will need to cut the end off the cable there should be three wires an earth and a left and right cable these will need to be resoldered on the new jack plug.. make sure it is a stereo jack...!!.the best way to solder is to gently heat the cable end and dab a bit of solder on each before trying to attach to the jack. then when you come to connect the jack end lightly touch the connector and cable together with solder iron and solder..good luck A

Toshiba satellite a25 i was going to change the keyboard and broke the connecter slide off the motherboard. what should i do..

Without this slide the keyboard ribbon cable will not lock onto the motherboard connector and the keyboard won't function correctly.
The connector needs to be replaced, not an easy job, might be easier to replace the motherboard, but this may not be a cost effective solution might be better to buy a new laptop.
The cheapest solution is to connect a USB keyboard to the laptop, but then you need to lug both of these around when you travel.

Replace keyboard on Toshiba Satellite 1410-s173

First remove the AC adapter (Charger) if plugged in. Then remove the battery.

Next step is removing the Keypad Securing Strip. This is a plastic cover right Above the keypad, and below the LCD screen. Looking at it, you'll notice on the Left and Right sides of it, that it has a U-shape.
This U-shape covers the LCD screen hinges.

Take a small flat tip jewelers screwdriver, and come from the right side of this plastic strip. You will see a thin parting line, where this plastic strip meets the laptop body. Your flat tip goes in this parting line. You have to use finesse. It's doubtful you'll break the plastic strip, as it's REAL tough! But if you slip, you could scratch the plastic. (Actually, it's pretty hard to scratch that plastic! Just thought I would caution you. The plastic strip is made of a spaceage plastic. Pretty tough stuff!)

The plastic strip has tabs around the edges, every so often. These
plastic tabs snap into place, and hold the Keypad Securing Strip on. When you begin, it's a little tough to get that flat tip down in there. (Remember ->Jewelers screwdriver!)

Plus, you may be at one of the points that there is a tab. Usually there is a 'dimpled' flat place, that looks like a flat tip should go there.
With the flat tip jewelers screwdriver inserted a little, ease back on the screwdriver, and lift the plastic strip up.
It will look like it's bending. If you have another flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, or a small butterknife, you can insert it, and hold this part up. Then take the other flat tip, move over a little, and start lifting up.

Once this Keypad Securing Strip starts coming up, it will come to one of those tabs, and the tab will come up and out. You'll hear a POP, and think you broke it! You didn't.

Go along the edge, and keep popping this strip up. Use caution, as to how far you insert that flat tip screwdriver!
There are tiny little wires under there, and you don't want to pinch one, or tear it loose. Keep the flat tip, about a half a fingernail length in, and you won't.

Once you get towards the other side enough, the strip will let loose, and come up.
Without disconnecting the wires, see if you can lay the strip towards the back, and lay it out of the way. Towards the LCD screen. You are trying to get to the screws, that secure the keypad. They will be in a metal strip for the keypad, and towards the LCD screen.
I can't remember at this point if there are two, three, or four screws. You'll be able to see, and you'll know.

(Use Caution! You can easily drop these screws! They might go right into the body of the laptop. You MAY be lucky enough, to pick the laptop up, turn it over, and gently shake the laptop, to have them fall on the table. You MAY not be so lucky, and have to disassemble the entire laptop, to get to them!)

IF, the Keypad Securing Strip will not lay out of the way, so that you can get to the keypad screws, you'll have to remove it.
It isn't tough, but it looks daunting the first time.

You will see small White connectors in the middle of the cables.
Two wire cables, if memory serves. These connectors are small White rectangular blocks. There is a Female and a Male. You just take your fingernails, and ease the connectors apart.
Don't worry about how they go back together. They are different sizes. You just match up the size.

Now with the keypad securing screws removed, ease the keypad forward a little, and bring the front of it up to a tilted position. (Towards the LCD screen is the front of the keypad) You don't want to bring it straight up, as there is a flat ribbon cable you need to disconnect. The flat ribbon cable attaches at the back of the keypad. (Towards you) It has a White connector.

This connector is different, from the ones you have disconnected already. The connector itself has a locking 'bar'.
This thin rectangular piece of plastic, goes across the length of the connector.
It is positioned at the front of the connector. It comes forward, towards the flat ribbon cable end, that is connected to the keypad.

It slides. It only slides so far, then stops. It is at this point, that you remove the flat ribbon cable itself. The one towards the keypad. There will be No connector on that flat ribbon cable. It will be just the ribbon cable itself.

When you reattach it, you just slide the flat ribbon cable back into the White connector. Then you ease that locking bar back into position. The position that it started from.

Now reverse your steps.

The F connector has broken off of a Sylvania model 6520FDG set

Replace the connector with a bit of cable and a new female end. Go to Walmart or BigLots, buy a 6' extender cable (6.00) cut off the female end with 6" of cable, strip it back and solder in in(?)

Go to Dollar Tree, spen a buck and get a 3-way splitter. Take home, saw apart and get the connectors off the board inside (3 of them(!)

or... Check Mouser, Allied, Newark, Radio Shack, Ace hardware for the part.

. Good luck
(You need a Female, F-Head, PCB Mount connector
