RCA plug stick in back of TV

I have the tip of a RCA plug stuck in the back of my Vizio P2 42 in TV. The tip is inside the female end and I cannot seem to find any tool that can extract it. Does anyone have any solutions?

Re: RCA plug stick in back of TV

You might try using an easy out. If you don't have one they are availble at most hardware stores.

I moved the Mintek Tv from my bedroom to the living room, the tv cable cord will not screw into the Tv, I was told that I need a adapter, coax to av-rca, is this correct? What do you think?

Not sure due to lack of information to go on
I. think you need a tv coaxial female to f plug male adapter
really depends on the TV cable cord what is the gender of the end of the cable if it is coaxial male then the adapter needs a female coxial
if the tv has a female socket hole then the f type part of adapter needs to be a male.

The tv manual may shed some more info on the type of RF antenna coaxial connector. it uses.
RCA can be confused as av is to do with with hooking up a Video recorder with Video output being the yellow plug and audio with Red and white plugs.
I think you need a RF coaxial adapter rather than AV RCA if you are connecting tv to a tv antenna or tv antenna splitter device.
there is a RCA standard that has adapter like below link
again gender types are needed to be considered before deciding if correct type of adapter..
You could research the rca rf standard to see if it is used in your country. My country uses Pal coaxial standard.

Want to connect pc speakers and subwoofer to lg37lc55 tv unfortunaly it doesnt have an earphone 3.5 connection point. My other smaller tv does, the speakers and subwoofer consist of a white and red audio...

Your TV should have an AUDIO OUTPUT other than least " Headphones" output..
You can connect TV audio output with a RCA cable.
white and red audio jack....
since SUB has both RCA and "3,5mm Headphone female Jack" are the options;
** you need to buy a cable one end 3,5mm MALE headphone jack and the other end 2xRCA stereo (or 1x RCA for mono or you may need "Y cable " ) to be connected to your TV...
** or 2x RCA
white and red audio jack and connect from your TV..
**" "Headphones" output to SUB with 3,5 male-to-male cable ( the least recommended)
And you need to connect front,centre and rear speakers to your SUB as well...
Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

Hope this helps!

PC to LG TV. on PC we have DVI out. We have used a DVI to HDMI cable. we have plugged this into HDMI3 input on the side of the TV. we are using a wall mount, and dont want to damage cables by plugging...

Can you assign different audio inputs on your TV to go "with" video input HDMI3
If so, you can connect the RCA cable into an input on the TV and on the other end you will need to purchase a "dual RCA female to 3.5(1/8") mini adapter" to go into your PC.
These can be found at your local radio shack type store or ebay.

I hope this helps

How to connect headphones

  1. This TV doesn't have a standard 1/8" stereo jack, so you must use the RCA connectors on the back of the TV.
  2. Purchase a 2xRCA Male / 1x3.5mm Stereo Female Y-cable, such as the one available here.
  3. You will also need a set of headphones, preferably a powered set.

How do you hook up a playstation to my vizio tv

depending on the age of your play station you may or may not have an hdmi output on the playstation. if youi do then its simple. one hdmi cable from the tv to the playstation and yoiur done. if not, you should have some round color coded plugs on the back of the tv and the same ones at the playstation. they should be just larger than a pencil eraser. these are called RCA plugs or phono plugs. the cables will have the opposite end with pin sticking out. you can go to google images and type rca plug to see a picture.

Where on the tv do u plug in headphones?I hve a sanyo tv DP32640

Get an adapter: the one you need depends on the headphone type. If you have the standard IPod/computer headphones with a 3.5 mm plug, get a 3.5 mm F to RCA stereo (2 male plugs). Then plug the RCA plugs into the audio out of the TV and the headphones into the 3.5 mm end.

The TV's Audio out is between the Composite Video IN (Video 1) and the PC input.

If you want to have a longer cable, get the 3.5 mm F to RCA stereo (2 Female ends) adapter. Then connect a stereo audio cable to the TV audio out and the RCA side of the adapter and the headphones to the 3.5 mm port.

Make sure that the TV outputs to the external speakers (some tvs do this automatically when external speakers are plugged in). Menu > Sound

I hope this helps.

A/v cord tip broken off in television

You can try an eyeglass screwdriver. Insert into the hollow center of the tip and angle slightly to "grab" the tip and work gently out. A pair of tweezers might work as well by grabbing an edge of the tip to pull out.

I want to hook up my bose speaker systerm to my new vizio tv

Real easy, get a RCA audio cable (red and white ends) that is long enough to go from the tv inputs to your receiver inputs. Plug one end into the audio out on the back of your tv, then plug other end into input on your receiver (tv, cd or vcr). Now everything going to tv will output to receiver also. You may have to go into the TV menu and under audio, set audio output to fixed. Then you can change the volume on your receiver which is best way to go.

**Advanced** If your TV and receiver has optical capability you can use an optical cable instead.

Good luck,
