Re: Broken anteana screw post

John, the rf connector is not replaceable, have to replace tuner, this involves removing the main board, unsoldering old tuner and replace with new tuner and solder it in. Not rocket scientry if you have the equipment and a working knowledge of how to un-solder & re-solder in the part. You didn`t give make & model number so can`t give you price or part number, if you decide you can do this repair, send me make& model number & I`ll look up part number for you, BMW Rider

Zeneth A25A11D 25' tv has broken cable connector

Sorry, I miss-read this post. I orginally thought it said your cable broke, meaning the coax that went to the back of the TV.
The coax input is more than likely a part of the main board. I am not a tv expert but as with laptops and input modules that break you have to soder the peice on or replace the whole board.
Easier to switch to a/v inputs as mentioned in Solution #1.
I could not find a spec sheet for your model but did find this for you to give you an idea on what is entailed in replacing a broken RF connection. This may or may not apply to your model, but here it is anyway.
I would suggest letting someone who is qualified in TV repair fix it.
Here are the service manuals for your Zenith. Download both and then extract to your desktop for easy access. I downloaded and extracted myself to make sure it was a working copy so you are good to go.

VCR/DVD prongs broken off in TV

unplug the tv then try to drill a real small hole in the broken off part of the cable that is inthe tv, then take a sharp pointed screw and try to thread it into the hole that you drilled if able to get it started then pull out on the screw to see if it will come out. If not able to do it this way you will have to take the back off and some of and see if you can push the broken part out from the inside. Be sure to unplug your tv from (AC) so you dont get hurt. If that dont work then u probley willhave to take to a shop to get fixed.

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.

Coaxial output broken

If the connector end is not damaged and the tuner circuit board is not broken, you can solder this back onto tuner, and solder the end back on the circuit board. You should take the tuner out to do this proceedure. A TV shop usually charges $50.00 to do this.

you need to take off the antenna so that can solder the antenna terminal inside the tuner.

Paperclip broke off in my antenna jack of my TV

You could try a small, powerful magnet. You can get a magnet that is on a telescoping pole at some hardware stores - they're used to pick up dropped screws, and things like that. Something like this:

That might be strong enough to pull it out. As far as dismantling the connector - it's not really something you can take apart, or at least not something you can put back together afterwards. At best, you could open up the case, remove the connector and solder on a replacement connector. I think your best bet is the magnet pick-up tool.

You have diagnossed the problem by moving the antenna imput,the problem might be a loose conection in the tuner itself,the grounds ussually get loose and need to be resoldered,if you are familiar with tv service you can resolder all the pins and grounds,there is another possibilty and that is the conector itself where the antenna screws is loose and it has broken the solder conection inside the tuner and the will have to be taken apart and resolder,the conector has to be solid .You have an option and is using the aux,1 or 2 and coneting you vcr to either one those imputs then you will need to change the channels thru the vcr,this way you will not have to worry about the tuner.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
