No instrution sheet that I know of. Those "F" connectors are most of the time part of the "tuner", if so just take off the tuner (unsolder it) and pop off the two sides of the "tuner can" and straighten the "can". Take the "F" connector with a small screw driver and scrape the side of the connector to make it shinny and so the solder will stick to it, and do the same to the "tuner can". Use a good hot iron to solder it back on. Do NOT get the "F" connector so hot that the inside of the connector will melt. The center conductor of the "F" connector will have to be soldered back into its hole as well.

The coax cable nipple (labeled "RF") on the back


As long as it was a clean break this will be an easy fix. If the tuner got damaged at all, then you will need to replace the whole tuner, which can be a bear if it is a two sided board. You can buy a new connector at just about any electronics store. You will need a soldering iron, solder and wick for the repair. You might be able to just solder the original connector back on if the break is clean enough. You will also need to stick a wire or something like that in the hole to keep the plastic from melting shut from the heat of the iron.

The box on the back of tv that the coax cable turns onto is broken. Can we go buy a cable peice and just solder it back on or do we need to order the whole little box?


You can buy the RF jack and solder it back onto the tuner as long as the tuner has not been damaged beyond repair. Inside the tuner the center conductor from the jack solders into the printed circuit board. If any small parts are broken or missing then you will have to replace the tuner.

Where can I procure parts for a WF203 model TV. The part that receives the coax cable is broken and I need to replace it


Try ued.net you'll need make and model numbers, depending on how old tv is it could be either a antenna isolator or a tuner.

Tv fell and coax antenna cable got yanked out of back of tv.


Repair can be made if you use the utmost care. Do not remove tuner (steel case). Open side closest to screw jack and remove other side,may be soldered. Observe the the center lead and how damaged the pc board is. Use solder and thin wire, strip a twisted wire till you have one strand and repair board and solder the outer metal to the tuner can. Then presto TV again! Good Luck be safe..

Message reads NO DISC on Advent model DV1418A


Is the disc an original DVD or copied. If it is copied and the DVD is old the DVD will not read it and tell that there is no disc. You also need to have the laser checked. Did it do it for a number of disks or just one. If you have only tried one disk, try another

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.

Cable jack


The RF jack is solder directly into the tuner module and as long as it did not break the circuit board inside that it connects to, it can be repaired . Takes a lot of heat though to solder the jack to the frame of the tuner. Sometimes I use 2 irons to get it hot before the plastic guts of the jack melt too bad. Also is sometimes hard to cram the jack back into its mounting hole, may need to file it out some. The makers don't solder these on they are just pressed in and crimped which is why they break off so easily. I recommend using the push on type cables to avoid this problem. Don't forget to solder the center conductor into the tuner board.
Hope Ya Fix It!
