Female coax connector in tv bad?

Tv went to all snow, every channel while in use. turn off/on doesn't clear. I connect from wall, through a cable converter to tv. Cable co. came, researched & pronounced cable, cable converter are good - problem must be my tv. They even used my cable to connect to their portable tv & it looks fine. Picture & sound are fine if use TV for watching DVDs. I'm leaning toward the coax connector as culprit. Is it possible to replace that myself? We have a 27" Hitachi TV. Recently, it has intermittenly been going from a perfectly clear picture to a gradually increasing 'snow' state with accompanying 'sssshhhhh' noise. The only way I have found to temporarily eliminate this is to literally smack the sides of the set with force! The snow either goes away for a short while or, sometimes disappears for the entire evening of TV watching. Any ideas as to what is causing this and how to eliminate it?

    not so much the snow as described above, but tv intermittently loses signal (either black screen, or dreaded "one moment please" screen). cable guys have replaced all connectors, inside and out, pronounced the box and signal to be good and last night suggested it might be my TV connector. i realize this is possible, the TV is about 7 yrs old and has gone through two cross country moves, but is it probable? has anyone else experienced this? thanks in advance.

Did the cable person take a reading on the signal level at the cable outlet on the wall and did the cable person check the TV setting to make sure they are correct. TV could be set on the wrong channel also.

    The cable connector on the tv is very fragile if is is loose it is no goog. Take to TV repair shop and have them look at it.

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.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory ResetF (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Grandson played with remote now only getting snow on tv. on correct channel and input setting. tried turning on and off.


If your set is connected via the RF coax cable from a cable box, what may have happened is that you may still be selecting the RF input, but not cable channels.....you may now be linked the the old analog channels that were for over the air broadcasts. There is a menu option that selects the type of tuner that is used for the coax input.

How do I connect the coaxial cable?


This is quite simple. Your wall box is a male connector. The TV input is a female one. Make a cable with resp; female and a male connector. Unless the wall box has a 'screw on' connector. (FC10 f.i.) Then you need this special item and/or crimp tools in order to fit this FC type connector to the coax cable. Not simple.

I have dynex flat screen hdtv,need to hook up jvc dual dvd-vcr recorder to it need direction pls have no knowledge of hooking up this diagram would also be great


  • find the video input 1 in the back of the tv (this video connector yellow + audio red **audio right channel and white left channel) is known as female RCA conector)
  • get a set of rca wires **known as male RCA*** (yellow red and white)
  • find the RCA female conectors Yellow red and white in the DVD call it video (and audio) output
Connect sets accordingly the TV video input yellow conector with video output yellow with the set of wires RCA yellow. Do the same with audio.

  1. second part of this talking is to find and cable splitter (usually three output and one input
  2. find TWO coax cables (this cable is usually a black wire with a connector each side this fits perfectly in the antena input of the tv)
Now connect your cable into the splitter (input) and your two cables in each output, then send one of them into the TV antena conector and another to the DVD coax input.

To watch your TV only select any regualr channel as you do it.
And to record and actually see Your DVD/tape and what you record also. You have to select in your remote control the video 1

ones you get custome to this configuration you can record a channel and at the ssame time watch any second channel selected in the tv.

I hope was clear.

Tv has snow screen but plays movies fine, just no cable channels come in clear, some one has said maybe tuner. Sanyo DS24425


It may very well be the tuner. If it has another means of connecting to the tv try composite or component cable. If that isn't possible try replacing the coax from the wall plate to tuner and from tuner to tv. This is if you have a cable box also called an STB in your home. If you do not have an STB try changing the coax from wall plate to tv. You may even want to replace the barrel on the wallplate as well. If the cable runs through the VCR disconnect it and run it straight to the tv and this will determine if the problem is in the VCR.
Hope this helps you out.

Female coax connector in tv bad?


If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
