Question about Televison & Video
Antenna post in back of tv broke off. Can I fix this myself or is it too technical for the home handyman to fix?
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

The temporary fix for this issue never lasts and it will soon break again. I have seen some shops charge over 100 dollars to get the TV working again, but later the part breaks off again. The threaded part that is broke is from the tuner that is on the main board.
The only real way to fix the problem you have is to purchase a new main board.
Next time use a "slip" connecter (not a threaded one) on the back of the TV for the cable connection.
