Ask yourself is the frustration worth the cost of a connector? If not then strip the wires and connect them. You may damage it however you will not have the cost of the connector.

The 'out' cable got ripped off of the receiver box :(. The cable came completely out, leaving the metal adapter end cap attached to the receiver. Can I resplice this back together myself?


throw the old screw end away, it will only provide you with more headaches if you use it. Buy some coaxial connections from the store for about 3 bucks.....you cant get the wrong thing if you just bring the old end and match them up.
Cut the old cable line clean and strip about 2 inches back and install the end cap......If you dont have a "coaxial cable crimper" then get the connections that screw into the cable.....should say it on the package.....
Screw in the connector to the cable and connect it to the system and Viola good to go
GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!!

My son trip over the cable cord and pulled out the cable connector, were you connect the cable cord.


  • Using a wire cutting tool, cut and remove the outer sheath of the coaxial cable approximately 1/2-inch down from the end of the cable. Take care not to cut too deep or you will damage the aluminum sheeting and perhaps even the plastic wire insulation. Peel back the aluminum sheeting so it wraps around the outer sheathing and remove about 1/4 inch of the white plastic wire insulation using the wire cutting tool to expose the thin cable wire.
  • Attaching Connector
  • Slide the ferrule ring, which is the metallic piece used to hold the connector on the cable, onto the coaxial cable. Push the connector onto the cable so the white plastic wire insulation rests up against the inside of the connector. Slide the ferrule ring forward so it covers the bottom end of the coaxial connector.
  • Finishing
  • Crimp the ferrule ring tightly around the wire and the connector. You may notice that some of the aluminum sheeting that you pulled down sticks out of the bottom of the ferrule ring. Trim the sheeting before using the cable.

    Connection for cable box to tv monitor


    On the back of the cable box there should be 2 coaxial screw on connectors. One should be labelled "In from Cable" and the other should be "Out to TV". Screw the cable comming from the wall into the "In from Cable" connector and get a short piece of cable to go from the "Out to TV" down the the coaxial connector on the TV. Turn on the cable box. Now tune the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 and you should have a picture.

    Input signals Marantz SR4003


    There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
    You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.

    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.
