    What is a solder? My tv has two connecter, could the second connecter that is still in place be used? If so what and how could I program my tv to connect to the second connector that reads analog/antanna?

I stuck a sewing needle into my cable line (to give it length) and then stuck the needle inside the broken connector. I then duck taped it to make it stay connected to the back of the tv. This is a rednecks repair no doubt but it was cheap and easy!

You can buy replacement antenna jacks for this. What you have to do is remove the tuner and it's shields, then unsolder the little tab off the board of the tuner which is what remains when they break off. Then you can resolder the new jack in place and the center pin back to the board of the tuner.

I have a rca d52w23 no caoax hookup what part do ineed to make my tv cable ready


The model you listed does have a built in tuner so there should be a connector on the back where cable TV would connect to. A very common issue on these sets is the connector often breaks off rendering the tuner useless and therfore requiring replacement of the tuner itself. You can use a cable box and connect it to either the component or composite inputs on the back of the TV. I hope that helps : )

The antenna/cable in threaded piece has come out of the back of the tv. How can I fix that. I tried to put it back but it won't stay. I think I need a new one.


These sets have what is known as a on board Tuner. This means that the Tuner is not replaceable without replacing the entire Board. The good news is that you can replace the Cable/RF connector as long as the shield it attached to is not broke or too bent. Most of the Cable/RF connectors used in these sets have PCB mount . You will have to remove the Signal Board and unsolder the center connection of the broken connector left on the Board. Remount the new
Connector and solder the center connection. You may need a collar nut to secure the Connector the the shield.
I hope this helps,

Loose UHF connector


That connector is just press-fit into a metal shield around the set's tuner. It's commonly broken loose by overtightening the cable connection or tripping over the cable and yanking on it. In bad cases it can be broken completely off the set. It really doesn't "leak" anything but can cause a poor picture and allow interference to get in.

The connector can be soldered back into place with the aid of a suitable-size soldering gun. You should be able to find a TV servicer who still makes house calls. With labor and trip charge, I'd guesstimate around $100. The shop I worked for got $72 for this repair, and that was nearly 10 years ago. It is also possible for do-it-yourselfers to make this repair if they have the soldering skills. But even if you pay someone it's still less than the cost of a new set.

If you have Direct TV HD the best way is to use a HDMI to DVI cable. If you only have the component (red/green/blue)connectors on the Direct TV Box that would be the best way. You will not have audio using the DVI cable, so you will have to run Red/White cable to the Audio Input.

The part is called and "F" connector. It can be purchased but it also muist be soldered in place. This is not a trivial task. The F connector is part of the tuner. For a set of this size, it may be easier to replace the tuner rather than fool around with a repair attempt. Depending upon how it was broken, the PC board inside the tuner may be broken as well requiring tuner replacement anyway.

HDTV picture problems


Does the picture just get dark or does the picture go out completely? Does it do this with both the cable and the DVD? Is the audio affected?

Programming digital channels


The problem is not with your TV. You need a digital box to unscramble the channels.
