TV is less than a year old and the cable connector has broken off. I contacted the electronics department with the number on the back and was advised by mail that they no longer carry this part. How can a product that is less then one year old have obsolete parts!!! Can someone help with this please?

Re: rear cable connector.
If you can find a local (experienced) tech have them look at it. If the cable connector is a part of the tuner, you may have a problem as the tuner may need replaced (although I have had success repairing tuners with this problem).
However, it may be that the outside connector is attached to an internal cable, then to the tuner/rf modulator. If that is the case, many of these connectors are interchangable and the repair should not be too expensive.
The key is to find a tech that has your best interest in mind.

With most tv's I've serviced, the cable connector is connected directly to the tuner module. The tuner module may be damaged beyond repair, depending upon how much physical force was applied to the cable connector. I would take it to a reputable repair shop and let them provide you a honest estimate of repair. They may be able to resolder the cable connector to the tuner module.
You probably have the wrong cable, plugged in the wrong jacks. At the rear of the LG you can see the s-video connector and the 2 RCA audio connectors( white and red) - they are on horizontally lined on a printed box. Take 2 cables (an s-video one and a 2-headed RCA one) , plug them in there then go to the tv and look in the rear connectors panel for another box that has all of them(again set on a line) plug the cables there and select the AV entry labeled in the box.
Since you didn't provided the exact model of your tv i can't be very precise but the remote of this recorder is very limited, it has the codes just for a very few numbers of tv's - and only for new models (less than 2 years). If your tv is older or an not big brand one then it's not supported, you will have to use another universal remote to control both.
Less than a year old tv.Ur tv still have the manufacture warrenty.Look in ur owner manual,call the tv manufacture 1-800.... numbers on the owner manual.Talk to their customers service department,what locations or what shops they hire to call,to take care their product that still in warrenty.
If your oven is less than a year old, then you should contact the store where you purchased it from or contact the manufacturers service department , as it should still be under guarantee.
Hope you get your problem solved.
First, you didn't say whether the Front lamps are actually lit. I know that it is difficult to tell on this model unless you cheat the lamp interlock switch and fire up the unit into scan mode.
Front Lamps errors can also be generated by a loose front camera cable. There are no dedicated lamp detectors. The 4099 uses the camera's ccd's to detect if the lamps are burning. It is also possible, but less likely , that the lamp fuse on the main board (slides out from rear) is blown. (Fuse part number CA53004-0227).
From previous experience, there is probably a 95% chance that the issue if coming from a loose front camera cable. Not the kind of thing to get in and check unless you are service savy. I have had several calls that drove me nuts with this issue until I reseated that cable onto the camera.
The Fujitsu service manual list these possibilties :
a. Do the Front side lamps lite up when you attempt to scan?
b. Is the lamps correctly seated?
c. If the lamps don't light up, possible lamp inverter problem or fuse problem.
d. Is the glass surface and white sheet guide clean?
e. Are the connectors at the front camera ccd loose?
f. Is the power supply output normal?
g. Possible front camera failure.
h. Possible connections from camera to the Rom board problem.
Yes, its not that difficult. You may even find that you can salvage the one that you have. You'll have to unplug the TV and remove the rear cover. The connector may be located in the rear cover or a plate that sticks through the rear cover.
The connector may be attached to the TV's motherboard or a sub-board. It may even be just a bulkhead connector with a cable that is bolted to a plate.
Let me know what kind of "F" connector it is and I'll help you locate a replacement. Maybe you'll be lucky and just have to resolder the old one.
If the set is less then 2 years old it should still be under warranty. As I understand there is a 2 year warranty on this set. There is some adjustments to adjust on and inside this DLP TV set but they are not customer adjustments and should not be attempted without a service manual. They are on a service menu for the tech to access and adjust. My best suggestion would be to contact the manufacture from a contact number in the owners manual or from the store where you purchaced the set from or from a number I found for a main contact. Main support number 800-294-6400. Good Luck
I had the same experience with my set. I noticed there were 2 new cables attached to the new board and looking carefully noticed the
connectors were different from the old. The new connector fit
perfectly into the new board but wasnt the same as the old. I replaced the old cable with the new and the TV remained bad. I then flipped the connector to the main circuit board (bottom left) and the new board worked fine. I know nothing about Tv repair, but this new cable seems to be a universal connector in which the contacts are open on 2 sides...allowing them to be flipped if necessary.
Now if I could get that solid line out of the display I'd be set!
