<p>"Everything is better with Bluetooth" is an adage
that was popularized by the television program "The Big Bang Theory. It's
hard to argue with that. Bluetooth is a fast and secure way to transfer digital
information. While it is useful can extend the range a Bluetooth connection,
making your own antenna to make technology more valuable. <br />
<p>1. Pry apart the case with a Bluetooth screwdriver. Remove
the electronics module. <br />
<p>2. Heat the existing antenna cable with a soldering iron and
pull it free from the oscillator. <br />
<p>3. Remove the excess solder the electronics module using a disordering
braid. <br />
<p>4. Remove the outer insulation of the new antenna cable, and
cut the outer shield of the coax to the wire strippers. Add a little solder to
the shield for the more solid. <br />
<p>5. Exposing the central thread of removing the cable from 1
/ 2 inches. Leave a bit of plastic between the wire and shield. <br />
<p>6. Slide the wire through the hole and bend it at right
angles. The shield should be established by the turtle. <br />
<p>7. Protect the solder and pad together. Turn the plate over
the center wire and solder in the hole. Remove any excess wire with wire
cutters. <br />
<p>8. Clip the excess wire stabbing through the hole and insert
the module in the case and assemble the two halves. Use tie-tape, glue or tape
to hold it together when necessary. <br />
<p>9. Insert the module on the subject and put things back. Use
clamps to hold it together. <br />
There is only one antenna connection. That is the wire or pin in the middle of the coax connector where the old antenna was connected. Hook that to your new antenna, the other connectors are usually at ground potential and won't help a bit. Often a piece of wire the same length as the old antenna will work fine. Stretch it in the vertical position as was the old antenna.
in the picture is the antenna jack the one attached to the rolled up cable? does it look like this
if so radioshack or something similar sells that jack or a car audio shop
you could just strip the wires and wrap them round the terminals
or find someone that you know that knows how to use a soldering iron and solder it back together or you can get an soldering iron and do it yourself they are not that expensive now and im sure the people in the shops will tell you how to use it if not then look on google on how to use a soldering iron there will be millions of pages explaining how
you can solder a new terminal on. its realy easy actually. you can buy a pen soldering gun for like 3 bux and get flux core solder not acid flux!!! the solder is really cheap too. if you never soldered before its really easy. first twist the wires together(in your case slip the treminal end over the wire coming from your sub and if its not a wire depending on how it broke like if part of the old treminal is left you can just solder a new one to that. grab a flat blade connector the same size as the one that broke off) just let the soldering gun heat up then dab a little bit of solder onto it and touch the tip of the soldeing gun with the ddab of solder facing the part you wanna heat up hold it there and keep dabing the solder onto the parts your heating and when it melts (should take only a fue seconds) dab it till there is a good amount of solder melted on there not so its driping off but enough to surround the 2 pieces remove the soldering gun and your done!! then just plug the wire back onto your new treminal! if you kneed help or i misunderstood your question let me know and pics always help!! :) good luck
If your antenna cable has been cut or severed, it can be repaired without the need for a replacement.
You will need the following things:
Small 600 degree soldering iron and solder. Liquid flux for soldering the braid. Small sizes of heat shrink tubing. Small heat gun. Small pliers, cutter, and Xacto knife.
1) The first step is to use the Xacto knife to cut both ends of the antenna cable so you have a clean end.
Using the Xacto knife roll the cable on a board and gently cut all
around the cable to cut the outer insulation. Remove about 1/2 inch of
the insulation from each end.
3) Push the braid back to expose
the center wire and gently roll the cable and cut the center insulation
to expose about 1/10 inch of the center wire. With your small long nose
pliers, bend the center wire into a small hook shape.
4) Repeat all the above steps on the other end of the wire.
Put a 1 inch piece of heat shrink tubing on one end ( the black piece),
and a 1/4 inch piece of heat shrink (the white piece) on the center
conductor. Look at the picture to see this.
Hook the two ends together. Gently squeeze the hooks closed and solder
them together. Be very careful when soldering this. Be quick so you do
not apply to much heat and cause the heat shrink tubing to shrink on
the side where you do not want it to be.
6) Slide the small
white heat shrink to cover the cooled solder joint you just made and
use the heat gun to shrink the tubing in place.
push the braids back together to cover over the connection you just
made. Try make the braid smooth together by GENTLY rolling the cable
between your fingers. Carefully solder the braid. A little liquid flux
on the braid prior to soldering helps the solder flow and makes it look
8) Slide the final piece of heat shrink tubing over the braid and shrink it with the heat gun.
The wire is soldered to the board after going through the white insulation inside the connector barrel. After opening the unit, place the solder iron in the hole provided where the barrel is attached to the board. Push the broken piece out using a piece of 18AWG bare solid wire. This is a little tricky... make sure you don't damage other components on the board while pushing the old piece out. Then use the same 18AWG wire for the repair. Push it though from the outside of the barrel. Use the small lower opening to get the solder in place. Leave some space to move it back further when you solder into place. Then cut the wire flush with the outside of the barrel. Warm the solder again, and pushed the wire back in a little so it is recessed in the barrel. Let the solder get hard, and that's it... Works perfect. Should take 5-10 minutes.
You have to re solder the connector. The other solution is to patch from the Direct TV box AV out to the AV input on the back of the TV. This will bypass the tuner and give you a cleaner picture. However, if your TV does not have an external input you must re solder the connector. As easy as it may seem, this should be done by a qualified technician. Its not as easy as it looks and requires good soldering skills.
