The connector needs to be soldered in two ways. The center connector needs to be soldered to the same point as the original. This may have broke off close to the small circuit board inside the tuner and you hopefully can see the broken piece sticking out. The tuner should ideally be removed to accomplish this. The tuner usually has two shields that snap in place that can be removed. You may be able to solder a short piece of wire to the remainder of the original connector. The outside of the f connector also needs to be soldered to the tuner shielding itself as a ground connection and you will need a soldering gun or higher wattage iron for this step. Use a lower wattage soldering pencil for the signal connection to the tuner board.

The coaxial cable connector broke off the back of television. Where can I find a replacement


www.tvrepairworld.com should have a tuner for your model. The tuner will need to be replaced unless you can solder with very close tolerances.

Need to replace the coaxial cable connector


This can be pretty tricky. You have to get the new connector pretty hot in order for the solder to flow properly and get a good connection. Also, where the center connector goes inside of the tuner be carefull not to damage anything in that area. Unless you are really good with a soldering iron it may be best to leave this to a repair shop. Thanks

Broken terminal, the possitive terminal on the sub broke. but the sub isnt blown i dont wanna buy another. and ive putten the wires together and tapin it but it wont stay and either will a wire **** i need...


you can solder a new terminal on. its realy easy actually. you can buy a pen soldering gun for like 3 bux and get flux core solder not acid flux!!! the solder is really cheap too. if you never soldered before its really easy. first twist the wires together(in your case slip the treminal end over the wire coming from your sub and if its not a wire depending on how it broke like if part of the old treminal is left you can just solder a new one to that. grab a flat blade connector the same size as the one that broke off) just let the soldering gun heat up then dab a little bit of solder onto it and touch the tip of the soldeing gun with the ddab of solder facing the part you wanna heat up hold it there and keep dabing the solder onto the parts your heating and when it melts (should take only a fue seconds) dab it till there is a good amount of solder melted on there not so its driping off but enough to surround the 2 pieces remove the soldering gun and your done!! then just plug the wire back onto your new treminal! if you kneed help or i misunderstood your question let me know and pics always help!! :) good luck

Input cable piece broke off akai pt5499hd


The coaxial input can be soldered back in. You will need a new one however. Sometimes the internals in the tuner (where coaxial goes) may be damaged when coaxial connection breaks out. If that is the case a tech may charge more money. But just to replace the connection should be relatively inexpensive.

Broken coax connection on back of unit


If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.

Coaxial outlet broke off


I assume that you pulled the F connector out of the back of the TV. In most Sharps, the F connector is attached directly to the tuner, which is the rectangular silver metal box soldered to the main PC board. Did you buy a replacement F connector or the entire tuner? Either way, the tuner must be unsoldered from the main board and the new F connector is soldered into the old tuner or the new tuner is soldered in its place. If you do not have experience soldering PC boards then let a qualified tech handle it for you.
