Broken cable connector in the back of JVC tv

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.

The cable connection on my tv broke off how can I connect back to the cable


On most TV sets, the cable connector (also called an F-connector) is just press-fitted into the metal housing of the tuner (which selects the channels). It's not very strong mechanically and is pretty easily broken by tripping over the cable, moving the TV if the cable is too short, or often by cable technicians who overtighten the cable connection with a wrench.

The good news is that this can be fixed. There are two ways. The simple method is to replace the tuner. It's quick but costly as a new tuner may run $100. The second way is to replace the broken-off F-connector. On some sets it's possible to do this without removing the tuner, but not always. This repair may take a little more labor time, but saves the cost of the tuner.

Either way, this is a repair that's best left to a professional. Without the soldering skills and equipment needed, it's possible to do major damage to the TV and tuner circuit boards. I would recommend getting an estimate for the repair from a shop in your area. Yes, there are still places that fix TVs, but they are getting scarce.

Another possible "fix" is to forget about using the TV cable connection and use a VCR or DVR to tune the channels, and just use the TV's video and audio inputs. It doesn't repair the TV, but it gets you back onto the cable.

I hope you've found this helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!

Broke the Cable input out of the back when moving the TV. Do I need to replace the board and if so do you know the model # and where I can find the part?


that depends on where the break is. may get away with a strip connector if it is just inside the casing of the tv. if broken on the pcb then you will probably require new board.

Although I've had some success soldering a few of those lugs back into place, it will be more dependable to replace it with a new part. The TV says, "no user serviceable parts inside". A technician would be your best bet. He should give you an estimate in advance.

I have a 27 jvc tv


The connector that just fell off when the cable was pulled will have to be replaced by a service center, Sometime the connector will just come out ot the solder joint and can be replaced. Sometimes it breaks off part of the circuit board, if it broke the board it is not likely that anyone will be willing to try to fix it.

Broken coax input to back of tv


NOT REALLY BUT YOU COULD GET ROUND IT BY BUYING A £20 DIGIBOX (FREEVIEW BOX) AND CONNECTING IT TO THE TV WITH SCART AND ARIEL GOES INTO THE DIGIBOX (FREEVIEW BOX).

MEANS YOU CANNOT WATCH ANALOG ON THE TV ANYMORE BUT DIGITAL IS MUCH BETTER.
