If the board is not cracked,a qualified technician may be able to sloder another coaxial jack for a service call charge. Look carefully with a flash light........if you see the small board is cracked.....it will need the tuner and could cost $200. You may be able to cicuimvent by hooking your cable box or satellite box into the video inputs instead......select with input button on remote and should work fine with no repair at all

RCA F27440 Cable connector broke off tuner TU17101 Is it replaceable or is the TV scrap?


As long as the PC board inside the tuner module is not broken, then the set is fixable. This is a tricky repair however and probably not a DIY. The part costs around $4. A local repair shop should be able to fix this for you for a reasonable labor cost.

Rf conector broke


You have two choices, you can: Take the set to a repair shop and have the tuner replaced. (expensive) Or you can use a VCR or other device with a tuner and fees video and sound in through the RCA jacks on the TV like you would to connect a video game console. Some shops that are worth a darn will actually repair the broken RF connector. You might ask the shop about what options they offer for that repair.

The cable connection on my tv broke off how can I connect back to the cable


On most TV sets, the cable connector (also called an F-connector) is just press-fitted into the metal housing of the tuner (which selects the channels). It's not very strong mechanically and is pretty easily broken by tripping over the cable, moving the TV if the cable is too short, or often by cable technicians who overtighten the cable connection with a wrench.

The good news is that this can be fixed. There are two ways. The simple method is to replace the tuner. It's quick but costly as a new tuner may run $100. The second way is to replace the broken-off F-connector. On some sets it's possible to do this without removing the tuner, but not always. This repair may take a little more labor time, but saves the cost of the tuner.

Either way, this is a repair that's best left to a professional. Without the soldering skills and equipment needed, it's possible to do major damage to the TV and tuner circuit boards. I would recommend getting an estimate for the repair from a shop in your area. Yes, there are still places that fix TVs, but they are getting scarce.

Another possible "fix" is to forget about using the TV cable connection and use a VCR or DVR to tune the channels, and just use the TV's video and audio inputs. It doesn't repair the TV, but it gets you back onto the cable.

I hope you've found this helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!

Part PM820148 of thomson lcdB03B is broken


Unfortunately the connection port you are talking about is on the tuner board, and cannot be found seperately. The tuner board is pretty inexpensive though. Costs just under 65$.

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.

Broken Cable Jack on c27a24t


You should take this to a service shop to have it properly repaired. They may have to order a new tuner module if the circuit board inside has been damaged.

There are safety issues with grounding and AC mains isolation with this connector.

Servicing this can have serious safety issues. Take the set to a service center if you want it repaired.

For the average TV set, the tuner module is rather expensive. It can be in the area of about $70 to $120 depending on the model. There is about 1 hour of labour involved if there are no problems to change it.

You may be lucky, and the service tech may be able to fix the connector back to the tuner case or have a way to change it.

If the set is more than about 5 years old the tuner module may no longer be available.

Tv coax f connecter is broke off cannot hook cable cord on it. or antenna


I looked up the manual for this TV and it has composite (RED, WHITE, YELLOW) and component (RED, GREEN, BLUE) connectors as well.

Are you using a cable or Dish box? If so, those boxes usually have output in Coax, Composite, and Component formats. You could just run that type of cable. If you use Component you will also need another cable set (RED, WHITE) for audio.

If, on the other hand, you do not have a cable box and you are using your TV's tuner you only have two options. You can repair the broken connector or you can route the Coax through an inexpensive VCR which will allow you to convert it to Composite cables. In this case, however, you'll have to use the tuner in the VCR, not the tuner in the TV to change the channel. Sorry it's not the best of news.

I want you to know that I'm not paid for this. It's a strange hobby I know, but I like to help when I can. While I cannot physically repair you TV, I hope you've found this information at least helpful and will rate it positively. If you have more questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, and good luck.
