    connection on back of tv broke

    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!

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.

Cable connector broken

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.

Anntena terminal

That's called the "F" connector and it attaches to the inside of the tuner, which is solder mounted to the main board. Main board has to be removed, tuner extracted from the main board and if the pc board inside the tuner is not damaged a new "F" connector can be soldered in place... At our shop we charge $60.00 for the repair and $2.50 for the part. I'm sure you'll find that's about average.

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.
