Female coax connector broke on vizio smart t.v.can i buy an adapter or reroute out of cable box to t.v.

If the cable box has an HDMI or video output, use one of them to connect to the TV instead. The female coax connector is not easily repaired and you can't reroute or adapt anything to fix it. You will need to replace the TV main board if the HDMI/video connection is not an option.

Looking for cable with analog on one end and coax on other end

Since you're going to be soldering anyway, these are available on ebay. Just keep your wire as short as reasonable.



The other way is just grab a short f-type to f-type coax (standard TV coax cable) , and cut off one end. Then unweave the shield and solder into a bundle with a short wire to the TV antenna ground.

I moved the Mintek Tv from my bedroom to the living room, the tv cable cord will not screw into the Tv, I was told that I need a adapter, coax to av-rca, is this correct? What do you think?

Not sure due to lack of information to go on
I. think you need a tv coaxial female to f plug male adapter
really depends on the TV cable cord what is the gender of the end of the cable if it is coaxial male then the adapter needs a female coxial
if the tv has a female socket hole then the f type part of adapter needs to be a male.

The tv manual may shed some more info on the type of RF antenna coaxial connector. it uses.
RCA can be confused as av is to do with with hooking up a Video recorder with Video output being the yellow plug and audio with Red and white plugs.
I think you need a RF coaxial adapter rather than AV RCA if you are connecting tv to a tv antenna or tv antenna splitter device.
there is a RCA standard that has adapter like below link
again gender types are needed to be considered before deciding if correct type of adapter..
You could research the rca rf standard to see if it is used in your country. My country uses Pal coaxial standard.

I have a Philips MC235B micro stereo system, but I'm too dumb to figure out the FM antenna connector type. Any help would be great, thank you!

If it is a plug, it is probably the PAL connector so you would need a PAL female on your coax lead.
There is a great reference at the FM Antenna Connector and Adapter Guide with pictures:

I've just bought a Altech AEC High Definition Digital TV Receiver and even though I'm not a blond female (sorry nothing against blonds) I'm finding it hard to understand the instruction booklet as to how...

Hi mrs Grumpy well this is a difficult task doing this blindly not knowing what you have there But I will try to explain the fundamentals.

First you have a coax (black cord ) from the external antenna. That goes directly to the antenna in on the set top box.
From that box you need a cable that has male and female plugs on black coax that goes from STB to the ANT IN of the Video recorder. Then from the VIDEO recorder ANT out Take that to the TV Now you might not have the right cables as Ins and Outs have different plugs on them You need some that are Male to Male and Male to Female The female plugs are O with and o inside them ( cant reproduce it in text) Males are an O with a pin inside them . so looking back at your connections From the wall to thje set top box is Antenna in is a female plug and Antenna out is a male plug. so check what cords you need to plug these together in the sequence I have outlined.

You will also need some different types of plugs that came with the STB that will be colored RED YELLOW and WHITE connect these from the OUT to the AUDIO/Video in the same color sequence to the recorder Than the next set of colored plougs from The recorders Audio Video OUT to the TV. Now it should all be connected cotrrectly You TV set TO AV should show the channel that is selected on the STB. Use the STB remote to change channel preference for viewing.

Get back to me if you need to cloarify anything.

Cheers Thank you for using FIXYA and please rate the help box.

Digital to analog converter box hookup

You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

Stronger antenna

unscrew the antenna, and buy an rp-tnc connector and an n-male, then get an antenna with female n-type connector. LMR240 coax is better than RG58 for 2.4. which ever you use get the connectors to suit. Then crimp or solder them to your coax and away you go. no need for other settings ... just ssid of access point.

Hook up vcr

yes, you need to use an Audio/Video cable (red, white, yellow) to hook to the TV. I've never seen a VCR that doesn't have coax connectors for the antenna input and TV ouput, but maybe the new ones are starting to leave that out. Normally, you run the antenna or cable coax into the VCR's input, then run another coax from the VCR output to the TV's input (or use an A/V cable)

Need an antenna block for a Sanyo DS25390

Was the block a cube about 1" ? You should be able to salvage one from an old tv. This block is used to isolate the antenna/cable from the "hot" chassis inside your tv. If you should find a used block ,make sure it does this. If you get one that gives you a direct connection to the chassis, your antenna/cable connector would give you a shock and probably burn out something in your tv when the cable is connected. Some of the Sanyo's have this connector made on to the tuner. If this is the case you'd have to either put a new coax connector in the tuner OR replace the tuner. Stargazer
