Question about Audio Players & Recorders

I bought Steren RCA - RG6 jacks (P/N 200-085) and need to know the proper way to install them on RG6 cable. Do you fold the braid back over the jacket when installing? Is there documentation that descibes the length of exposed center conductor. Thanks, Don

Here is a link to the manual for the connectors you bought:
If you don't have one already, you will need to get a compression tool for these connectors. They range in cost from about $25.00 to $50.00 US. Also, If you aren't experienced with stripping coax cable you should probably buy the stripper they recommend for these connectors.
As for the braid, don't fold it back and usually the center conductor should be cut to about 1/4 inch on connectors like these.

Good Luck,

RCA DCM425. What coaxial cable do I use? The RG6

Contact your cable provider, you most likely have a signal issue related to poorly seated fittings, outdated or wrong bandwidth splitters, or low signal from outside feed. Quadshield rg6 is the best indoor residential application though. -Comcast tech

Prong on RCA antenna cable too large for spot on Toshiba vcr/dvd

Hi, You need to look on the cable itself to see if it is an RG58 or RG59 or RG6 or RG9. On an RG6 cable the center conductor is larger than on an RG58, The RG6 cable is used for incoming cable, satellite ect. An outside antenna is not usually equipped with an RG6 unless it is of the new HD variety, which is meant to go to one of the newer tvs. You can remedy the problem a couple of ways, use the ant out on the tv if you have one or use an adapter that fits 2 coax cables together and use a RG 58 jumper from the adapter to the vcr. Good Luck!

Broken coax connection on back of unit

If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.
