Question about Toshiba TP50G60 50" Rear Projection Television
I purchased a used tv and didn't realize the ant 1 cable port was broken off. I tried switching the cable to ant 2 and switched it in set-up mode, nothing but snow. I opened the back of the TV and I see the silver cable port box. I see the electronic board is chipped where ant 1 port was. Can I purchase this part, what is it called, can I attempt to repair this myself?
If you have already identified where the connection was on the board you will have to access the board to be able to solder back to the points where the old connector was. Once you have identified the two solder points (One should go to ground and the other if you can with the tv on touch it and see if a picture tries to come in or get rid of the snow). Then buy a matching transformer from radio shack or Home Depot, Lowes. Normally this would go on the outside antenna. But you want to take it and clip and strip the ends that have the forks. Solder this to the board, one to ground and the other to the point that would have been center on the old broken piece. This will have a 72 ohm or a connection that your antenna will connect to.
