Tv connector cable plug slips out

The metal "screw" which keeps the male cable plug secure for plugging into the tv set is wiggly. When I plug the male cable plug (connector, is it called?) into the back of the television set, the picture ranges from total static to an exceptional reception. to get good reception the plug needs to be held in place. otherwise, the set is full of static,, and the sound is full of static.

How do I replace this "male cable plug connector" on the cable line which is secured onto the cableplate on the living room wall? Can I put a new plug one on this cable line? How do I do this? many thanks, annemarie

Re: tv connector cable plug slips out

You need to replace your wall cable outlet. This can be purchased at any Radio Shack or Home Depot store. You will find two mounting screws , remove them and you will have access to the junction box. If the cable system was installed in the proper manner you will find a double male connector attached to the face plate by a single securing nut. Remove this nut and replace the double male connector. simple job, hope this was a help to you.

good luck----------------tomtaso

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.

that coaxial cable with male end has to be connected to '' tv antenna in '' connector of your tv ....... to find whether any ac adaptor is required for your indoor antenna just observe all sides of that antenna ....... if any male or female connector is there means definitely it requires adaptor ( size will be smaller then coaxial cable's male end connector ) .... click 1 st link to see whether your antenna is like that ..... if no means check 2nd link ............ once your antenna's model no is identified it will be easy to clear all doubts ....... it may require 9 volts or 12 volts adaptor ..... Recoton's universal adaptor is available ( check 3rd link ) ...... so check these links & tell us .... then we can find exact details of your antenna .......... if possible take picture of your antenna (all sides) & email to me ( ) ....

Hello, i have a 52"

Sure, for audio just get an adapter cable with a 3.5mm headphone plug on one end, and male RCA (red and white) audio connectors on the other, plug those into corresponding RCA jacks on one of the unused inputs for your TV then set the TV to that input.

Can you connect earphones to this TV? -GE25GT240 Serial #943516018

There is no front panel earphone jack for this TV. From the owners manual I can't find the rear view of this television. If there are connections on the back for AUDIO OUT there will be two connections for an RCA type connector. All you need to do is to get an adapter (from Radio Shack) and plug that into the two Audio Out connectors on the back of your television and plug your headphones into that adapter.

I recommend this one:

If you have a 1/4 headphone connector (the old type) you can convert the 1/8 to 1/4 inch with this one.

What cable do I need to get audio through my tv from the laptop

Assuming your TV has RCA audio input jacks (red/white), you can get a 1/8" stereo mini plug-to-RCA plug. The mini plug would connect to your headphone out jack on computer, and the RCA red/white would go to an audio input on the TV. Be careful with how much volume level you are sending to the TV from the computer. Trial and error, because it's not really common practice. You might have to choose the proper input via the remote/menu on the TV to listen. Be careful. Hope this helps.

Have an RCA F27636BC TV. Can u hook a DVD player

How to hookup TV

If you have a TV with only a single coax input and you want to hook up components like DVD players and VCRs, here's how to do it.

What you need to connect your DVD player or game players to a TV that only has a VHF/UHF 75-ohm F-connector ("coax antenna input").

1.) RF Modulator with Stereo Audio Inputs.

2.) 6 foot long coaxial cable with male "F" connectors. This cable goes from the modulator to the TV. The modulator also has a coaxial input to plug in your antenna or your VCR.

3.) 6 foot long Video and Audio Cables with "RCA" plugs. The cables connect the yellow, red and white outputs from your DVD or game player to the yellow, red and white inputs of the modulator.

Works with X-Box, PlayStation, Nintendo or other devices that output audio/video via the RCA plugs and you want to connect them to your coaxial only TV.

Cable female adaptor is missing

The small metal box is the tuner. The tuner has to be removed to replace the broken off RF connector. The connector has to be soldered to the tuner housing (metal box) and the leg of the connector has to be soldered to the circuit board, board has to be checked for cracks or if it is broken. If board is damaged the tuner will have to be replaced, if its available.

Digital to analog converter box hookup

You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

The cable coax male connection is disconnected from the television

The coax connector you describe is called the F connector and the silver box it is attached to is called the tuner. The original F connector or a replacement F connector can be soldered back into the tuner, but the metal frame of the tuner must be straightened out and the center pin must be delicately reattached too. This is quite an easy job but requires some labor, assuming that nothing was jammed into the tuner when the F connector was out and the coils behind the F connector have not been disturbed. I usually charge about $40 to reattach F connectors but if I have to replace the tuner I charge about $50 because it is a lot less labor to replace the tuner and they can be purchased for about $25.
