Hello,

the solution to fix up the antenna condition properly is to remove the black plastic gently (it a protector) against dry then the wire will be able to pass through at is expected

please note the black is a protector from the from the factory so as to protect any form of dry going in

thank and thanks for using fixya.

Try this kindly..

This article concerns woofers. It refers to components within a two-way or three-way speaker. 2-way speakers consist of a woofer with a mid-range or high frequency speaker. In a 2-way speaker, the "tweeter" produces most of the information you hear, and the "woofer" produces what one would commonly describe as "bass." Three-way speakers add a separate mid-range speaker, to further differentiate the mid-range of voices, many reed instruments, etc., with the uppermost frequencies (typically described as cymbals, triangles, plus harmonic overtones) being handled by a tweeter.

The low-frequency speakers in these enclosures are termed woofers regardless of how big they may be--12-, 15- or even 18-inches, but the low-end bass goes much deeper as the woofer size increases, because the lowest frequencies demand the movement of lots of air.

Replacing a woofer and its driver is a technical job, but can be done by anyone. The parts, the driver, the woofer cone, and the woofer surround, are all available from several well-known sources. The difficulty concerns the degree of part replacement. Re-coning a speaker driver should best be done by a professional service. Replacing the driver portion of the woofer, while somewhat challenging, is doable by an intrepid do-it-yourselfer. Finally, merely replacing speaker foam is easy, though it can be a bit messy.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • VO meter
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Rubber adhesive (for surrounds)
  • Rubber cement (for cone hole repair)
  • Kraft paper (for cone hole repair)
    When Repair Can be the Best Bet
  1. Step 1 A speaker driver is the individual round element at the rear of any speaker. It converts electrical energy to sound waves that in simple terms are created by the speaker cone's movement. Drivers are meticulously engineered pieces, combining a magnet with a wired "voice coil" that produces the back-and-forth motion that results in "sound" as the cone moves.

    Crossovers are the frequency point or points at which sound frequencies are divided between the woofer and the higher frequencies above approximately 300 Hz. In essence, a manufactured speaker, especially any really good ones, are specifically "tuned" to their enclosure.

    One of the major age effects of many woofers is dried out and cracked speaker foam. It is noticeable by a distinct loss of bass production. Since all woofers have to be matched to the volume of the enclosure to get good bass performance, as well as matched to the crossover point or points for the blending between the woofer and tweeter or midrange, re-foaming those old drivers is wise, economical and relatively easy. Do it yourself with an ally such as simplyspeakers.com--you can always also opt to have it done by a service.
  2. Step 2 If going beyond re-foaming, replacement of the exact woofer/driver combo contained in the original speaker is advisable for the reasons articulated above. Also, it is best to replace any and all speaker parts in pairs, to ensure that speaker performance characteristics remain identical.
  3. Step 3 When repairing a damaged cone, seal the front and back side of any holes in the cone with rubber cement. If required, place a piece of thin kraft paper over the first layer of rubber cement--on the back side of the woofer cone--to keep the cone from further tearing from regular operating conditions.
  4. Step 4 Remove the speaker enclosure's front grille to see the speakers. Remove the woofer from the enclosure and the crossover network can be seen within. Grilles are secured with snaps, Velcro, or screws.
  5. Step 5 Unfasten the drivers, as needed. The driver/woofer assmebly on a two-way or three-way speaker are usually screwed in from the front. Some are also sealed in position. This can require a sharp knife to break the seal. If a seal is broken, simply replace it with sealer from an electronics or speaker parts department when the repair is finished.
  6. Step 6 Lift the driver from the enclosure to gain access to the wire connectors that attach the terminal block to the driver. Use pliers if necessary, but it is often possible to gently remove the wires from the rear of the driver or the terminal block, or both. Note that some internal wires are soldered, not clipped.
  7. Step 7 Remove the crossover network, as needed. Most are accessed from the front of the unit, though some are inside and are accessed once the main driver is removed.
  8. Step 8 Find the unit's fuse and test it with a multimeter.
  9. Step 9 Use the multimeter to measure resistance and continuity on the driver or drivers, crossover network, or the terminal block as needed. Most drivers have their resistance indicated on their back label, such as 8 ohms.
  10. Step 10 Replace components as needed and reassemble.

Has anyone figured out IF such a digital anntenna exist yet?


You don't need a digital antenna; any indoor UHF/VHF antenna will work. The antenna and the TV both connect to the converter box, not to each other.

A standard rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna with flat wire (300 ohm) connections can be hooked up to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box by using a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8). If you have an antenna with coaxial cable already attached, you don't need the balun.

To connect the TV to the converter box, you need an adapter that has an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box.

Procedures to install cb antennae mount


The end without a connector was once attached to an antenna. You need a proper antenna in order to use the radio. If you were to buy a new antenna, it will come with a length of cable attached. Even if you were to buy a new antenna, don't expect good performance from the radio unless you get the antenna properly adjusted. Yes, it will work "out of the box", but probably not as good as it could. There is a device called an SWR bridge, it's used to measure the SWR and the user then adjusts the antenna for the lowest reading by trial and error adjustment of the antenna.

Hello,
I had this same problem, I wanted to use this tv with a converter box and the only way to do this was to hook up the converter box with an external antenna to the small 3.5mm input on the back. If you go to radio Shack and get an "F to 1/8" Adapter"the radio shack part number is "278-257". It worked perfectly. I'm able to get many clear channels, and with the converter box I now have remote control. It works well. Good luck, I hope this helps
