Question about RCA 20F512T 20" TV

1 Answer

Tuner Problem Where can I find the part number for the tuner on my RCA 20F512T be found? The male connector to the tuner, which comes out the back of the TV broke off and now the entire tuner to me needs to be replaced. Researching the RCA tuner part reveals there are several tuners on the market cheapest at $82 to as much as $130. So, I need to know the part number for the tuner to make sure I replace it with the correct one. Robert

Robert,
Replacing the "F" connector is usually all that's needed unless the tuner board is cracked. You could remove the tuner - send it in for repair and re-install it... It would clearly save a few bucks!
Any shop should be able to do that one easy enough... Around here we charge $40.00 including the part to replace the "F" connector and there are shops that charge even less...

I HAVE NO CABLE BETWEEN TUNER AND AMPLIFIER


Normally you should have a stereo "line" connection. The cable consists of a pair of "RCA male connectors" on each end of the cable, "RCA" is the style of the connectors, usually one red and one black or white on each end.. "Line" refers to the type signal and voltage level of the signal. The tuner should have a pair of output jacks labeled as such and also labeled Right and Left. The power amp should have similar jacks labeled "tuner input" or "tape in", "phono in" etc. don't use phono or "mic in" if that is a choice. Use tuner in or tape in. Connect the same colors to the same channel on each unit, ie, red to right and black to left on each unit. On the amp you may have the option to select the input source. Select the one you are using for the tuner. Turn on the tuner and the amp and listen. Good Luck.

I have a General Electric Model: 27GT620 TV circa 1998; the cable connection has become loose and has caused the picture to go from picture to snow; originally we could "wiggle" the male...


Yes, you have a bad ground on your RF connector. With lots of patience, it can be repaired. You must remove the tuner shields from the TV. It will need to be unsoldered. Pull the shields off either side of the tuner. Donot even attempt to move the red coils you see in the tuner. If the red coils look bent or smashed it is for good reason. Do not bend or move these. I cannot say enough about these. Next you will solder the Rf connector and the tail that is is still connected to the tuner board. Inspect all the solder connections on the solder side of this tuner on board.There are about twenty bad grounds. You will have to really concentrate and excercise great caution to solder. Be careful not to burn any traces on the tuner board. Patience is a virtue here, any mistake may destroy your TV. After careful inspection and soldering you may resolder the tuner shields. If you feel you must replace the Rf connector that part is an RCA #215543. Remember it will take more than replacing this connector, to fix the snow you receive on the TV. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

Tuner replacement on RCA D52W20


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.

Cable/antenna connector


you can try to get just the coax replacement , otherwise you will have to get the whole tuner, and the number for the tuner is right on the tuner , but just soldering in a new coax connector is cheaper
good luck and thanks!

If you are decent with soldering iron you can repair it yourself. Remove the back, and remove the signal board from the unit. Unsolder the Tuner from the board( If I've lost you already, call a TV shop for repair) Remove the shields on the tuner and inspect for damage to the tuner itself. If the board is in good shape, replace the RF connector with RCA # 215543. you'l have to unsolder the old ends connector ( the wire thats still there broken ) from the board, then attach the new end, and solder to the board. Then using high heat, solder the Connector to the tuner housing. Replace tuner on board, hook everything back up, and you should be in business.

It is called and RF connector. Unless you are very skilled at removing the tuner from the SSB (small signal bd) identifying trace paths and soldering I would reccomend a qualified service provider to replace this part. Another option would be to simply replace the tuner (the rf connector is pressed into the tuner). If you provide the service # from the back of set I can provide the part #'s.

BROKE PART OFF TV-RCA F32665


Hi, some of those units have whats called a "RF cable" running from the back of the set to the tuner, and some are directly spot welded to the tuner, you need to remove the back from your set and see if yours is a short cable to the tuner, otherwise you have to replace the whole tuner, check the back of your set and you`ll see on a sticker the complete model number, (few numbers or letters after F32665) this is referred to as the service model number and I can look up exactly what you need to change

The cable coax male connection is disconnected from the television


The coax connector you describe is called the F connector and the silver box it is attached to is called the tuner. The original F connector or a replacement F connector can be soldered back into the tuner, but the metal frame of the tuner must be straightened out and the center pin must be delicately reattached too. This is quite an easy job but requires some labor, assuming that nothing was jammed into the tuner when the F connector was out and the coils behind the F connector have not been disturbed. I usually charge about $40 to reattach F connectors but if I have to replace the tuner I charge about $50 because it is a lot less labor to replace the tuner and they can be purchased for about $25.
