The cable input connector was broken off the enclosure on the circuit board. can that board be replaced? The connector broke off the enclosure due to fatigue caused by the service cable being pulled to to tight and it left a jagged hole in the enclosure casing.

Re: cable input jack bronken off
Actually I just repaired one of these "similar" units. If you remove the backing of the tv, unpluged of course, Theres a panel facing you if you are looking at the right side of the TV. This panel pops off easily with a light prying motion all around. You'll see where the connector broke off and can solder it back together with a small pin type tip. Solder the center pin to the center probe first,hold in place with needle nose pliers. 2 people are better than one at this. Then lay down agood bead of solder around the perimeter of the connector. Clean up any solder that may have dropped and put it back together, you'll be ready to go in about one hours time. Let me know how it goes!!!

If you are sure the VCR is having valid output, this could be a problem with the interconnect cables. If the cables and VCR have been verified to be okay, then the fault could be with the input matrix circuits in the TV set. A simpler form of this problem could be with the input connector, or the solder connections, or a trace on the board.
Sometimes the main input IC goes defective or one of its support components. In these sets the components are mainly surface mount types. Normally, the service centre will change the complete circuit board containing the input circuits.
The battery is connected via plugging in the input guitar cable ( a seperate contact is made at the jack). Sometimes this can be broken. Usually this failure is caused by someone stepping on or yanking a cable and the solder is broken at the jack/board attachment. This can be the input jack OR the power jack. Occasionally the circuit board or the traces on it are cracked, requiring jumpers to be installed on the board. In any case, open the pedal and look for these problems.
The solder at the connector may be broken loose or a circuit board could have a crack OR the jack may be broken... this is a common problem because the users trip over cables yanking the jack sideways. Take in for repair if you are not electronically adept.
Open and look for broken solder at the jack... common occurence when people step on plugs or cables going into these. Also look for circuit board cracks around the connector and also around the power input connector.
If you are electrically inclined, you can replace the cable jack on the TV ... but it will require some doing. You will have to open up the TV and find the circuit board with teh coax jack on it. take a soldering iron and remove the coaxial jack from the circuit board. Make sure you don't overheat the circuit board while you are doing this, or you will burn out the whole board. Once the jack has been removed, take it to Radio Shack, or a similar store, and find the exact same part. Then reverse the process -- attach the jack without overheating the circuit board, and put the TV back together. ****If you are not VERY good with electronics, don't try this unless you are not afraid of losing the TV -- it is VERY easy to burn out a circuit board.
If there is a TV repair person in your area, it would be a good bet that they can fix it for you at a reasonable price -- just be sure to tell them that all you need is to have the coaxial jack replaced. This way they can only do what you are asking for, and can't charge you for repairs you did not need.
Make sure you are NOT using a TRS (stereo or three conductor cable) type cable. PLugging into the input should turn the pedal ON, not off. The switch on the jack may be broken or soldering to the circuit board may be broken OR worst case, there is a crack in the circuit board.
I'm pretty sure t6hat the output jack is a sealed unit(contacts inside soldered to the surface of the circuit board. You may be able to grasp the center shaft of the plug with a thin jawed hemostat or really skinny long nosed pliers and pull it out that way. Make sure the amp is off and unplugged from the wall. If that doesn't work you will either have to get it removed at a shop or disassemble the amp to remove the circuit board and unsolder the jack and replace it or get the broken plug out of the jack once it is unsoldered. I've never had a Line6 apart yet but thats probably the type of jack they used. Thats because it has to be electronically isolated from the chassis. Hope this helps.
Interesting problem but I have repaired this problem before. This is not going to be something you can fix yourself.....believe me... I have 30 years of experience in Electronics.
The headphone jack either has to be resoldered or replaced. When its loose, in most cases the pins of the jack are broken and/or the printed circuit board tracks have been torn off the board. The jack is a surface mount part.
A new jack must be installed but there is no way to solder in a new jack because the printed circuit board tracks are gone. The new jack must be installed with epoxy to the board and new wires have to be soldered from the printed circuit board to the jack.
There's around 2 hrs worth of work involved in this repair.
