Re: broken cable connector
Yes, its not that difficult. You may even find that you can salvage the one that you have. You'll have to unplug the TV and remove the rear cover. The connector may be located in the rear cover or a plate that sticks through the rear cover.
The connector may be attached to the TV's motherboard or a sub-board. It may even be just a bulkhead connector with a cable that is bolted to a plate.
Let me know what kind of "F" connector it is and I'll help you locate a replacement. Maybe you'll be lucky and just have to resolder the old one.

Yes...if you can remove the board from the TV safely. You will have to unsolder the tuner. Then remove the sides of the tuner to inspect the damage. You will need to replace the RF connector with an RCA part #215543. On another note, find an old TV repair shop and see if they can salvage a tuner from an identical TV. This is actually faster and easier to repair. Note this, just replace the tuner, not the main board. The salvaged unit may not be serviceable. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!
With most tv's I've serviced, the cable connector is connected directly to the tuner module. The tuner module may be damaged beyond repair, depending upon how much physical force was applied to the cable connector. I would take it to a reputable repair shop and let them provide you a honest estimate of repair. They may be able to resolder the cable connector to the tuner module.
CALL HIM BACK . sometimes when we troubleshoot a problem another one pops up ,when troubleshooting we move boards and unplug connectors . there can be dirty connections that pop up when where done and even a broken solder joint as well . he should fix it for free . i know we do and it does happen to us once in a while . good luck
Let me guess you have broken off your I.F connector ,this is what you connect your cable to on the back of your set,if this is what you are talking about ,you will need to try and repair IF connector or replace your turner.sometimes when this piece is broken off turner is also damaged,there for you have to replace turner.
I really have to say there is no miracle cure for TV's I have 20years of experience in fixing TV's I don't suggest for you to try to fix this as TV's run on high voltage and you could kill yourself.
If you really cannot find a tech to check it for you the only thing you can try is to check for a broken fuse.
You Must Take Great Caution.
If you are a person that like to take things apart you may try to take the back off . Start by disconnect the power cable and follow the main power cable inside , normally it goes where the main switch is located and there you should find a Time Fuse normally the value is around 2.5 amps T for time it should say on circuit board & on fuse.Check for a faulty fuse.If faulty replace with the same type fuse and before you plug it in put back all covers than you may try to put on TV.
If fuse is good than fit back cover and take to a professional.
There is a coil in the set with a magnet glued to it, called the horizontal linearity coil. Sometimes the coil "sings", making a squeeling sound. I have seen this many times, and there really isnt anything actually electrically wrong with the set. To stop the squeeling the coil should be replaced.
Its fixable. the question is how much of the inside broke with it.
cost for repair on that usually averages 45 to 65 dollars... unless tuner is damaged in most cases not. if not hooked to tuner then maybe a new isolation block..simple job
