You can buy the male coax threaded terminal at Radio Shack or Home Depot...some Walmarts carry it too. You can do it yourself, just follow the instructions on the package. You will have to strip the plastic shiething off the cable a little with a knife.

One of the male pins on the unit for the antenna broke off. Is there a part that I can get to fix this, maybe the whole male pin unit is one part?


Hello, is the broken pin on the back of the unit or is it on the antenna cable plug? If it is on the unit and not the cable, you would most likely need to replace the connector that is attached to the PC board inside, which extends through the back of the case. This would require knowledge of soldering / desoldering pc boards, etc. and would be best performed by a "bench technician". There are no "user replaceable" plugs available.

THE ANTENNA IN HAS BROKEN OFF I UNSCREWED THE BACK OF THE TV AND IT IS A SILVER BOX ...IS IT TO BE REPLACED OR IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO REPAIR THE ANTENNA IN SCREW PART


The temporary fix for this issue never lasts and it will soon break again. I have seen some shops charge over 100 dollars to get the TV working again, but later the part breaks off again. The threaded part that is broke is from the tuner that is on the main board.

The only real way to fix the problem you have is to purchase a new main board.

Next time use a "slip" connecter (not a threaded one) on the back of the TV for the cable connection.

Adaptor broke off


It wolud require a new tuner as trying to fix this part back in normally does not last or if the end tag piece is too short to re-solder back on then the part needs replaced. You could try getting a local repair shop to give you an estimate on the cost before condeming the TV.

I've just bought a Altech AEC High Definition Digital TV Receiver and even though I'm not a blond female (sorry nothing against blonds) I'm finding it hard to understand the instruction booklet as to how...


Hi mrs Grumpy well this is a difficult task doing this blindly not knowing what you have there But I will try to explain the fundamentals.

First you have a coax (black cord ) from the external antenna. That goes directly to the antenna in on the set top box.
From that box you need a cable that has male and female plugs on black coax that goes from STB to the ANT IN of the Video recorder. Then from the VIDEO recorder ANT out Take that to the TV Now you might not have the right cables as Ins and Outs have different plugs on them You need some that are Male to Male and Male to Female The female plugs are O with and o inside them ( cant reproduce it in text) Males are an O with a pin inside them . so looking back at your connections From the wall to thje set top box is Antenna in is a female plug and Antenna out is a male plug. so check what cords you need to plug these together in the sequence I have outlined.

You will also need some different types of plugs that came with the STB that will be colored RED YELLOW and WHITE connect these from the OUT to the AUDIO/Video in the same color sequence to the recorder Than the next set of colored plougs from The recorders Audio Video OUT to the TV. Now it should all be connected cotrrectly You TV set TO AV should show the channel that is selected on the STB. Use the STB remote to change channel preference for viewing.

Get back to me if you need to cloarify anything.

Cheers Thank you for using FIXYA and please rate the help box.

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.

Digital to analog converter box hookup


You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

External FM antenna


The fix for the problem is simply go to Radioshack and purchase their part number 278-267 which is an "F" jack to 1/8" Male Plug. The cost is $6.09. This should solve your problem. The 75-Ohm antenna plug can now be screwed or connected to the "F" connector.

How do you replace the capacitor that receives the end of the cable wire?


If that connector is supose to be connected to the tuner, a long rectangular box, then most likly the tuner will need to be replace, and on a set like this I looked up a rebuilt tuner and the cost will be 58.00 from PTScorp, but is not for a novice to do.. it should be done by a pro so therefor its probably not worth fixing. If its part of a small square box that a wire attaches to the tuner. that part should be available and is know as an antenna block assy. This should be no problem for you to fix.. good Luck ps please dont forget to rate this thread
