Question about Televison & Video
The connector at the back of the tv where the cable would be connected broke off during a move. My step dad took the remaining piece out. How can we fix this? Is it a simple thing we can do ourselves?
If the remaining piece was not part
of the PC board , which is light yellow
theres a good chance with a soldering iron
and a new female coax from radio shack
you could do it . or pay a shop 75.00 to
reinstall one for you.

The coax connector you describe is fairly low-tech, so it can be fixed. You need to open the back of the TV (careful - high voltage in the capacitors) and locate where it came from.
The best thing would be to take some coax cable and solder the appropriate parts (shield and center conductor) to their exposed matches where the break occurred.
You can then run that through the existing hole, put a screw-on F-terminal end on the piece of coax, and a coax coupler on that.
Home Depot, Lowes, Radio Shack, etc. all have these raw parts.
