    connection on back of tv broke

  • Anonymous Jul 02, 2008

    Hi,



    My husband tried to move the TV without disconnecting the cable, and the cable connection to the TV popped off the back. We can stick it back on but any movement makes it fall off again. Any suggestions. He thinks we should buy a new TV (of course!) I say this one is fine and can be repaired cheaply. Help!

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!

First please try a hard reset: Unplug from power supply, remove all cabling and wait about 10 -20 minutes. Then reconnect to power and redo the cables. Switch on the TV and see if this resolves the issue.

If that does not work, then there is a problem either with the convergence IC's, or the circuitry. In any case, this wouldnt be a job that you can fix yourself, and I strongly suggest that you call a TV technician to correctly diagnose and repair the problem.

However, please try the hard reset first and post back with results, and I will try to assist you further as best I can...

Cheers!

Just bought a Westinghouse SK-42H330J LCD HDTV but I can't get the red to appear other than a washed out brown. I've tried everything. Any suggestions?


Are you sure that is the correct model number. I believe these tvs have 3 color modes, have you tried these? Have you also tried to set the convergence?

Please get back to me on this, thanks

I have Samsung A550 46 LCD HDTV, and Anteina IN Broken


Yes it can be fixed if the tuner board was not damaged. Get an RF modulator, you can pick them up at walmart, and use your RCA inputs in the back. All you do is input your main tv cable into the RF mod cable in, then connect to the out of it with your RCA cables and then into the RCA connect in, into the back of your tv. Or, like you said, you can input your main tv cable into your vcr/dvd then come out of that with the RCA cables, and again into the RCA cable in on your tv. This way you have to syncronize your channels after you do this to get the picture. You know, vcr on channel 3 while your tv is set to input 1 or whatever needs to be done.

It can be soldered back on. With that particular model, I don't know if the connector is connected to the tuner or if there is a litte square anteena box which then feed a cable to the tuner.

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.

HP PE4200N Plasma TV


This problem is caused by something called a YSUS board going out. You can buy the replacement parts for about $300 dollars or there is a company that will fix the YSUS board. I don't have instructions yet for removing the YSUS board, but if you've got the skills or know someone who's good with electronics, you can fix the board for about $120. I've got the same problem with my 42 inch plasma TV. I called PTS Electronics today at 812-824-9331 (their website suggests you call 800-844-7871). I spoke to Kelly. She was very helpful, but said anybody at their number can help.
Kelly said that you do not need to call first to get a return authorization. To get the YSUS Board fixed, you need to remove yours and send it to the following address:
PTS Electronics
2000 S. Liberty Dr
Bloomington, IN 47403

When you ship in, you should include a letter with the following information:
Your Name
Your Mailing Address
Your Phone Number
Payment info for the $122.60 to repair the board. If you want to pay with a credit card, note that in your letter and that you want them to call you. They'll call you to get your credit card info when they receive your board.

She suggested shipping via UPS and insuring the part when you ship it.

I learned some new things when I spoke to her. If you'd prefer to replace the board in your printer, you can use one of the following alternate parts to replace the YSUS board:
Part made by LG - part #6871QYH053A
Part made by LG - part #6871QYH053B
Part made by Toshiba - part #75003031 http://www.moduslinkptstvboards.com/75003031-P6096.aspx

Out of the three alternate replacement parts, the only one they currently have available is the Toshiba part. They have it listed at $254 (I thought Kelly said $268 - maybe with shipping?) with a core value of $65 that you'll get back if you ship them your broken part. That leaves you paying roughly $200. Having them fix my part seems like a better option to me. Kelly also said that all these parts for the HP TV are refurbished parts - none of them are new - that's why they want you to send them your broken part.

Link to PTS website with information about ordering 1032298-HS (http://www.moduslinkptstvboards.com/1032298-HS-P1628C13.aspx). They currently have 0 available for sale. The message on this page tells you to contact them to arrange repair using the information provided above.

You will need to know how to solder to fix, depending on the set, some have a stand alone tuner and others an onboard tuner and if it's stands alone then you can order a new tuner, but if it's onboard(meaning apart of the whole board) you have to resolder. Hope this helps! You will need to solder the thin wire inside to its broken part and the outside piece to its ground. and the two cant be touched or bridged.
