Re: how do I replace a f-type connector on my t.v.

Happens all the time. the way a technician would do it is to remove tuner from unit and if the tuner is not damaged too bad then it can be resolderd back on or a new one put on. Again if the tuner is not damaged which is what happens alot of times when the rf connector is broke off. Let me tell you the most inexpesive way of dealing with this.. feed the signal through another input. eather with a vcr or your cable box.. the rca jacks red white and yellow. then change input on your tv.

Model d52w20. The F connector on the rear panel is broken. How can I replace it?

The F connector probably is soldered to a circuit board inside your TV. You would have to disassemble the TV to get access to the board to unsolder the broken connector, remove it, and solder the replacement connector on the board.

This can be soldered back into the tuner if the board in the tuner is not broken. If you need a new connector any electronics supply store will carry it.

Tip of LANC connector on Sony tripod broken off!

Two options:

1. Replace the cable with the same connector.
2. Replace the 2.5 mm connector.

I took the LANC cable from an old Sony remote, open up the tripod remote control handle and replace the whole cable. Some soldering required to remove the wires from the PC board and solder the new wire.

The PC board has marking White/Black/Red, the replacement connector with the Tip to the White, the Ring to the Red, and the Shell to the Black.

Good luck!

The part is called and "F" connector. It can be purchased but it also muist be soldered in place. This is not a trivial task. The F connector is part of the tuner. For a set of this size, it may be easier to replace the tuner rather than fool around with a repair attempt. Depending upon how it was broken, the PC board inside the tuner may be broken as well requiring tuner replacement anyway.

Mitsubishi wd 52825 dlp

most commonly this is caused by a faulty power supply, more specifically 2 capacitors in the power supply. If you know how to use a meter and solder let me know and i will walk you through the repair. Otherwise service is needed and the repair should runn you $300-$500 depending on your area.

Now that i type that i did remember one more thing that can cause this. I would take the lamp out and look to make sure the connectors that it plugs into are not broken, sometimes when a new lamp goes in it doesnt line up right and brake the connectors.

Let me know!

Cable connector broke off rear of tv

This is a common problem and as long as the internal PC board inside the tuner is not broken, the connector can be replaced. The connector should not cost more than about $5. ANy local service shop should be able to replace it for you.

Cable connector broken

You can buy replacement antenna jacks for this. What you have to do is remove the tuner and it's shields, then unsolder the little tab off the board of the tuner which is what remains when they break off. Then you can resolder the new jack in place and the center pin back to the board of the tuner.
