Re: paperclip broke off in my antenna jack of my TV
You could try a small, powerful magnet. You can get a magnet that is on a telescoping pole at some hardware stores - they're used to pick up dropped screws, and things like that. Something like this: http://www2.northerntool.com/product/200314334.htm
That might be strong enough to pull it out. As far as dismantling the connector - it's not really something you can take apart, or at least not something you can put back together afterwards. At best, you could open up the case, remove the connector and solder on a replacement connector. I think your best bet is the magnet pick-up tool.

The signal meter should show you available TV transmitters. If you have received a signal at this location before and you definitely are sure it is powered up the antenna is defective. Check for anything that appears loose or broken. If the meter indicates a signal check the cable that goes to the TV.
yes it does seem to be a tuner problem , I also wonder what happens when you use the auto channel finder and tuner usually found in the set up section of the menu ? As well as was your TV working before and receiving input via the antennae but has now stopped working in this regard ? I also noted that attaching an analog to digital converter box worked fine , so your TV is capable of receiving a signal via that method , dose the converter box use your antennae input jack or a video jack to send the converted signal into your TV ? if it is using your antennae jack then it may not be a tuner problem .
No way to do that unless you can figure out a way to remove the part. The contacts inside that plug determine where the sound goes. No way to turn it off unless you remove the broken part. If you feel confident enough, remove the back of the TV and remove the broken piece from the jack.
Tv fell off about 3 feets or more?Yes,turn on the tv see if u getting any power to the unit?Might have broken main PCB board too.If unit still have power,check see if tv get statics screen have colors shaded in red or mutiples colors,mean the tv CRT(tv tube) yoke is dead and damages scrambles radiation.Or the tv getting power but have high pitch sqeeling noises or rattles noises,tv have the CRT-(tv tube) is crack by the neck or broken totally.CRT have damages problems or dead tv is worthless,beacause of CRT(tv tube) is dead,not fixable even that antena connector input is replaced.
You don't need a digital antenna; any indoor UHF/VHF antenna will work. The antenna and the TV both connect to the converter box, not to each other.
rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna with flat wire (300 ohm) connections can be hooked up to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box by using a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8). If you have an antenna with coaxial cable already attached, you don't need the balun.
To connect the TV to the converter box, you need an adapter that has an F jack on one end and a
1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The
1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and
the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack
on the converter box.
Oh, I get it now. That extra Sony one should work fine. Does this mean you got it working or are you still looking for a replacement? You can most likely find these on ebay by themselves or as part of a laptop wireless assembly.
