The coaxial connector broke off of my Apex LD3288T tv. I removed the back panel and I can not see how to re-connect the coaxial connector. Does anyone know how to repair this?


Its part of the tuner in most cases and not real easy to replace for a novice---sometimes the tuner will have to be replaced as when it broke off it may have damaged the circuit board inside the tuner.

there is a possible way around this: With a box of any kind being used that has the Audio/video jacks for output of signal you run cables from them to a set of matching inputs on the rear of set, leave set on that input and change channels with the box--bypass the tuner completely.

If the tuner and board it is only sold as a complete unit it will be expensive to repair.

The coax cable nipple (labeled "RF") on the back


As long as it was a clean break this will be an easy fix. If the tuner got damaged at all, then you will need to replace the whole tuner, which can be a bear if it is a two sided board. You can buy a new connector at just about any electronics store. You will need a soldering iron, solder and wick for the repair. You might be able to just solder the original connector back on if the break is clean enough. You will also need to stick a wire or something like that in the hole to keep the plastic from melting shut from the heat of the iron.

The cable connection on my tv broke off how can I connect back to the cable


On most TV sets, the cable connector (also called an F-connector) is just press-fitted into the metal housing of the tuner (which selects the channels). It's not very strong mechanically and is pretty easily broken by tripping over the cable, moving the TV if the cable is too short, or often by cable technicians who overtighten the cable connection with a wrench.

The good news is that this can be fixed. There are two ways. The simple method is to replace the tuner. It's quick but costly as a new tuner may run $100. The second way is to replace the broken-off F-connector. On some sets it's possible to do this without removing the tuner, but not always. This repair may take a little more labor time, but saves the cost of the tuner.

Either way, this is a repair that's best left to a professional. Without the soldering skills and equipment needed, it's possible to do major damage to the TV and tuner circuit boards. I would recommend getting an estimate for the repair from a shop in your area. Yes, there are still places that fix TVs, but they are getting scarce.

Another possible "fix" is to forget about using the TV cable connection and use a VCR or DVR to tune the channels, and just use the TV's video and audio inputs. It doesn't repair the TV, but it gets you back onto the cable.

I hope you've found this helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!

How do I replace the cable connection?


You have two choices--either have the tuner removed and repaired--a new coax fitting installed OR:

If you have Cable, Direct TV, SAT, etc--you can route the signal into one of the audio and video inputs on the back of the set and bypass the tuner connection totally.

You can even use a old VCR---it does not have to be able to play tapes--just hook it to one of the Video and audio inputs and use it or a box to change channels

Repairing the tuner or replacing it may be very expensive--going into one of the inputs could only cost you the need to rent a box if you have cable etc.

My son tripped over the cable cord and the cable/antenna input came off. Is it repairable and is it costly to get it fixed


It depends if the connector broke the tuner it is attached to. Most times the chassis of the set would need to go into the shop. I would generally charge $80.00-$120.00 if the tuner was still good - a new tuner would cost $60-$100 more if bad
The better solution is to use the video audio inputs (if on satellite or cable box) or use the video inputs by changing channels through the VCR (if on cable or antenna and a VCR is available)

The coaxle broke where you put the cable line on


The coaxial connects inside the set to the tuner. It needs to be resoldered in to the board & secured on the outside to the tuner. Its a quick fix at any tv repair shop. Unless u tried stick something inside & damaged internals of tuner

Cable connection part broke off in back


Are you talking about the part that connects the cable from the wall to the tv? I do not really understand which part on tv or vcr. It is true you can use the vcr as the tuner. You still have to connect the cable from the wall to the input cable jack on back of vcr. Then you hookup the R/W/Y rca plug- in cable from the back vcr output jacks (which are also color coded) to the tv's jacks. If you only have two jacks on the tv they will probably red and black. It doesn't really matter. Go from your video output on the vcr to the video input of tv, then use one of the audio outputs on vcr and go to the audio input on tv. It should work like that.

Broken Cable Jack on c27a24t


You should take this to a service shop to have it properly repaired. They may have to order a new tuner module if the circuit board inside has been damaged.

There are safety issues with grounding and AC mains isolation with this connector.

Servicing this can have serious safety issues. Take the set to a service center if you want it repaired.

For the average TV set, the tuner module is rather expensive. It can be in the area of about $70 to $120 depending on the model. There is about 1 hour of labour involved if there are no problems to change it.

You may be lucky, and the service tech may be able to fix the connector back to the tuner case or have a way to change it.

If the set is more than about 5 years old the tuner module may no longer be available.
