Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television
GE xs stereo
I have the same problem...the coaxle broke right off of the tv itself. Now, I can't reconnect it. It's a Vizio flat screen LCD
I looked up the manual for this TV and it has composite (RED, WHITE, YELLOW) and component (RED, GREEN, BLUE) connectors as well.
Are you using a cable or Dish box? If so, those boxes usually have output in Coax, Composite, and Component formats. You could just run that type of cable. If you use Component you will also need another cable set (RED, WHITE) for audio.
If, on the other hand, you do not have a cable box and you are using your TV's tuner you only have two options. You can repair the broken connector or you can route the Coax through an inexpensive VCR which will allow you to convert it to Composite cables. In this case, however, you'll have to use the tuner in the VCR, not the tuner in the TV to change the channel. Sorry it's not the best of news.
I want you to know that I'm not paid for this. It's a strange hobby I know, but I like to help when I can. While I cannot physically repair you TV, I hope you've found this information at least helpful and will rate it positively. If you have more questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, and good luck.

As a tech i have been known to fix these. reattached. if the tuner which is what it is attached to is not damaged...best soloution is to feed the signal with cable box or a vcr to another input through component leads. not fancy or eleborate but it gets the job done and it dont cost you the 150 to 200 to repair or replace the tuner
