    I tried that and the TV would not get a picture ? If I try and stick the cable hook up back in I get a picture but because it was tore out it won't stay in . I see there is some other hook up on both the cable box and TV some type of an "S" connection is that something that would work? Where do I get that type of cable ?

Most cable boxes have outputs for audio and video. Yellow is the video, red is the audio out for the right side and white is the audio for the left.
Take a set of RCA jacks and hook it up to the back of the set on input one.
Yellow to Yellow
Red to Red
White to White.
You need further instruction, respond to this post and I will reply.

Can this model be hooked up to an antenna using a coaxial cabe?

Yes. Any TV can be connected to a antenna. Hook it up to the same place where the cable TV hooks up. Make sure you go into the menu on the remote control that came with the TV and change the setting from cable to TV.

How to connect the cable to my Akai tv set without a cable input? I don't have a cable box.

If you get a cable box that has audio/video outputs on the rear connect them to a identical input on the rear of the set----direct connection and bypasses the coax fitting most sets have.

Go to the input you hooked to and leave set there--change channels via the box with its remote or manual buttons.

How do I hook up to Dish Network?

depending on the type BOX you have for it. If you have an HD Dish Box there should be an HDMI port on it. You have two on the TV. Unless you want to use Components RGB cables. That would look better than Co axial cable which is your last choice

Tuning in Akai Video

Please explain what you mean by "tuning in."  Are you referring to hooking up to your Television, or to a cable/satellite box?  Or can you not see video when you play a VCR.

Check your hookup cabling.  With a cable or satellite system, the VCR normally is hooked between the cable/sat receiver box and the TV.  Cable box RF output to VCR RF input, VCR RF output to TV RF input.

There are other possibilities when your TV has video or line inputs.

Tv want show

Look at the back of your TV.  Make sure your cable is hooked up to connector on far right, NOT the far left. (For analog cable TV.)

Push "source" button on remote or side of TV to cycle through TV inputs.  Wait one second between pushes.  You want to stop just before the source that displays "AV" on TV screen.  It should show a number, for the current channel number.

If you are using an analog cable box, try setting the TV channel to 3 or 4.  If you use no cable box, try changing channels on TV to find an active one.  If no luck, make sure your cable service is active (subscription active).  Cable companies disconnect it between residents of an apartment/house.

EM 500 RIBON CABLE TORE how to replace?? HELP!!

It might be possible to repair the tear. You'd need to bond a plastic backing to the back of the ribbon to support it. Clean off the front layer to expose the torn conductor ends then paint a thin strip of conductive epoxy or car heater matrix repair along each of the flat wires. Finish off by covering (when set) with scotch tape. Everything needs to be completely squeaky clean (use alcohol) before you start.
