I came back to school after my vacation was over. I was moving my television and noticed that the port the the cable wire plugs into was loose in the back of the tv. I turned on the TV to see if I can still watch it, but I get no signal. I kept tinkering with the port to see if I could get a signal but it just broke off. I think It needs to be repaired and I'm stuck at school for another 2 months and I don't know what to do.

you could take the back off and soilder the connector back on. Or there is an easier way! Simply cut the cable wire end off and just cut the rubber part off and leave the copper wire in the middle and push it in where the cable connector was on the tv and you can actually still pick up a good signal that way you just have to move it around in there till you hit the right spot that picks up a good picture. hope this helps.Happy Holidays!!
unplug the tv then try to drill a real small hole in the broken off part of the cable that is inthe tv, then take a sharp pointed screw and try to thread it into the hole that you drilled if able to get it started then pull out on the screw to see if it will come out. If not able to do it this way you will have to take the back off and some of and see if you can push the broken part out from the inside. Be sure to unplug your tv from (AC) so you dont get hurt. If that dont work then u probley willhave to take to a shop to get fixed.
First, I would change the cable that comes from the wall to the TV.
Plug the cable into the cable port, then go into the menu of the TV. Go to the channel setting and go down to where it says "CABLE YES/NO"and change it to cable YES. Then try to re-autoprogram it.
If there are no channels found after that, then you may have an issue with the tuner.
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.
