Take the rf connector and plug it into vcr or dvd player then using rca cables plug it into vid 1 and change to that input on tv... the down side is you have to change channel using dvd or vcr remote....as a tech i repair those cable connectors every day someone who can solder may be able to fix it.

Zenith R56W36 Screen rolls constantly with cable hooked to antenna input; works fine on all video inputs


Tuner or a sync problem----using the video inputs bypasses the tuner and front end of the set's signal circuits---consider using a box with audio and video outs to a rear input and bypass the problem.

The component that you plug satelite cable into on back of tv got broken off . is there a way to fix this ?


If you are talking about the coax cable fitting on the rear it can be repaired or replaced ---if it came loose or off you do have another option.

If your satellite uses a box and it has the audio/video jacks on it for signal out---hook them to the TV input jacks on back just like the ones the sat box should have---bypass the problem.

If I had to guess the cost for replacing the fitting will be over 100 depending on who you get to do the job---I have done them in the home and usually takes less than a hour.

there are two ways to hook up---with the cable/coax fitting and with the audio/video (sometimes called RCA jacks) inputs.

How do I replace the cable connection?


You have two choices--either have the tuner removed and repaired--a new coax fitting installed OR:

If you have Cable, Direct TV, SAT, etc--you can route the signal into one of the audio and video inputs on the back of the set and bypass the tuner connection totally.

You can even use a old VCR---it does not have to be able to play tapes--just hook it to one of the Video and audio inputs and use it or a box to change channels

Repairing the tuner or replacing it may be very expensive--going into one of the inputs could only cost you the need to rent a box if you have cable etc.

THE MALE ADAPTER FOR FEMALE CABLE INPUT IS BROKE, CAN I buy just that piece


You can but you have a real problem---someone is going to have to unsolder and remove the tuner that the coax fitting is a part of--not real easy on this model----

Then to replace it you have to unsolder whatever is left of the old pin from its center that is soldered into the circuit board inside the tuner-----


There is a much easier way to deal with this---if you have cable, direct TV, sat, whatever----get a box that allows you to connect into one of the sets of audio and video jacks on the back of the set---you bypass the cable fitting and the tuner--you can even use a old vcr and it does not have to be able to play--just use it as a tuner and go into one of the video inputs---

Let me know if you have concerns or questions- I am here to help.

Sony KP-53XBR45 rear projection TV: Coax input Selector Antena part on rear has the AUX input 'male' connector but the TV/Cable 'male' connection end is missing. Is there a way to use the AUX or any other...


You can replace the connector or if you have a cable box with audio and video outputs on it---connect them into one of the sets of jacks on the back of the set--switch to that input and change channels with the box----you can also do the same thing with a VCR--hook the cable into it and use its video and audio output jacks to connect to the video and audio input on the back of the TV.

In this case (the VCR does not have to work except as a tuner) you will go to whatever input you connect to and use the VCR to change channels.

These are a little less easy to use but costs you nothing---I am here to help, if you have any questions or need help let me know.

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.

We picked up a tv at a yard sale and the part where you connect the cable to has been pulled out. Is this repairable?


Good Day;
This is normally replaceable if the PC board was not damaged. The 'RF' connector is a soldered (crimped) on item. But don't despair; most projections that I now of have video inputs of some type.
If you have a cable, sat box or VCR you can bypass the connector by using 'RCA' cables. On one of the mentioned above devices hook the cable from box to TV. The 'box' will have a video output connector and the TV will have an input connector. The cables are color coded yellow (video), red and white (audio). Switch TV's input to correct input eg. input one, input 2.

Hi,

Based on your query "...which jack...put the green cable ...", I would suggest that you replace that green cable with a 3.5mm Stereo Phone Male to Twin RCA Male as shown below.
19ba6b8.jpg. The stereo phone would match the green INput ((Front) of the Logitech X-540 while the twin RCA (white & red) would match the RCA AUDIO OUTput of the LG 37LC2D.
f133914.jpg
Of course hooking it up this way would not fully utilize the 5.1 features of the X-540 (Rear and Sub/Center) but the TV sound will come out of the front speakers.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Broken cable hook up


sometimes if the tuner is not damaged then a technician can put it back on... the other option is to tune the channel through a vcr.. essentally bypassing the tv tuner and useing vcr tuner. hook the cable to vcr then using rca jacks yellow red and white connect it to you tv(if it has rca jacks ...most have them these days.. sometimes on front and sometime on back or even on the side.. tune your tv to that input(video 1 or something like that.. then using your vcr remote change channel...its not a perfect solution but it will save you the 130 buck most charge to repair that connector
