When I moved my Panasonic TV Set Model CT-32G21u I failed to unscrew the co-axial connector from the back of the set.
The connector on the TV set was torn off. When I tried to repair it I noticed there is an antennna module attached to the main PC board on the set. Can the antena module be replaced or can I reattached the antenna connector to the module - if so how - the wire leading from the connector to the module was broken in the moving process?

Re: 1996 32 inch Panasonic TV
What you are calling the "antenna module" is actually the tuner. The connector that pulled out is called the F connector. The F connector can be soldered back onto the tuner but this is a very delicate procedure and is especially difficult if any of the coils in the area of the F connector have been bent, altered or moved. The tuner itself is not too expensive and is much easier to replace than trying to replace the F connector, especially if you have never done one before. If you use this set with a cable box then simply connect AV cables from the cable box to the TV set the TV to VIDEO.

You should have a 2-wire cable with Yellow, White and Red RCA plugs on each end.
The Yellow line is video out. The White line is Left channel audio out. The Red line is Right channel audio out.
Since your RCV only has two RCA jacks use the Yellow line for video and the White line for audio.
You should also have an "F-connector for co-axial cable. If your TV set does NOT have audio and video jacks hook that to the co-ax antenna connector on the back of your TV set. Set the RCV for either channel 3 or channel 4 and do the same with your TV set.
The RCV unit has four receive channels which must match up with the channel selected on the CAM or TX unit.
You can scan all four channels either by auto or manual.
If you only have one CAM or TX unit it probably doesn't matter which of the four you use unless you have a computer ROUTER which interferes with one of the four channels.
If so, select the 1, 2, 3, or 4 channel which has the least or no interference manually.

Push the power button and the action button on the tv set until it shuts itself off and this will reset your tv. You cannot use the remote to reset...must use the actual tv buttons on the television set.

You are changing parts in the wrong circuit. The problem is in the vertical circuit. Look for the vertical IC and resolder the pins first. It should be an LA7837 or something similar. Also, check the 100ufd and 47ufd caps in the same circuit.
Sorry, but you've been had. From what you describe, it sounds like the set is going into high voltage shutdown. It does this if picture tube voltage goes over limits that might cause excess x-ray radiation, and the only way to clear the shutdown is to unplug the set. A number of things might be causing the problem, including a bad picture tube which would exceed the cost of a new TV. Without checking the set myself I couldn't suggest anything specific, and there are few repairs you would be able to try for yourself without the tools and some experience.
The only "solution" to this, I think, is to try to get your money back from the seller as the item was misrepresented, and apply it toward a set you can see working before you buy it.
Once you take the back off there is a glass gma fuse withing a few inches of where the power cord plugs into the board at. This should be a 6.3 or 6.5 gma fuse. Very common to blow in your model because the degausing coil is a little to big for it. There are other reasons for it to blow but 99% of the time you change change it and the set will work again. Let me know if you need more help or info!
HD ready does not mean it has a digital tuner.
don't know what TV model you have but any TV with a coaxial connector will receive the analog broadcast. However; if your TV is not equipted with a digital tuner, you will need a set top box when analog broadcasts stop transmitting in Feb.
