    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!

No need to buy a PC board. Have professional tech solder leads back and tighten connector

My cable port on back broke off, can't afford to pay for a service call. how can I fix it. is it easy or hard. please help.


It's real easy. Just turn it in for repair, and watch tv someplace else. Save up money, by the time you have it the tv might be fixed. If not, the repair shop will hold your tv and your money. You can make payments and stuff.

Where are tha capacitors fo misubishi wd62725 located


1. If you haven't done so already... Unlplug the TV!
2. Remove the rear lower outside panel using a phillips screw driver. Set the panel aside somewhere where it won't get tripped over and broken.
3. Remove the screws from the lower metal panel that hides the electronics and connections. When removing this panel from the back of the TV, there will be an exhaust fan attached. You will need to disconnect the fan's connector in order to set it aside to get it out of the way. Take note that all the connectors inside the TV except for one on mine had the ends labeled with a code so that they could be matched up when it comes time to plug things back in. Just make sure that when you're disconnecting the connectors that you number them or code them if they aren't already marked as there are probably 10+ connectors that will need to be undone in order to get the electrical chassis out.
4. Remove the big metal plate on the left side of the electronics chassis. This will help you get the electronics chassis out of the TV.
5. Slide the TVs power cable up and out of the slot that holds it in place. This will also give you slack to move the electronics chassis out of the TV so you can work on it.
6. Unplug the USB and Firewire connectors from the top of the electronics chassis.
7. Carefully slide the electronics chassis away from the TV. Take note that you will have to start to disconnecting connections now in order to get the chassis out of the TV, I didn't fully remove mine from the TV. There were just too many connections that needed to be undone. So what I did was undo enough of them so that I could set it on a chair, but still connected to the TV.
8. Now the electronics chassis is out so we can work on it. Remove the protective metal housing from the electronics chassis and expose the circuit boards.
9. Now you should be able to see your circuit boards. There are typically two boards that have bad capacitors on them. One is called the DM board and the other the Power board. The DM is the hard one to get to as its the middle board of three. When accessing this board, be extremely careful of the ribbon cables at the bottom and sides of the boards. They can easily be broken, torn, etc... Again, take note of the connections you have to remove and make sure they're labeled. Take a picture of things if you need too.
10. Now that you can see the capacitors on the DM Board, look for a grouping of capacitors:
11. Now look at the Power board. Its the board on the back of the electronics chassis. There are two capacitors to look for here: Photo of Power Board Capacitors Are these bulging or leaking? If so, they'll need to be replaced. Look for others while you're here. I ordered mine from mouser using this part#: Mouser Power Board Capacitors Link
12. Once you have the capacitors replaced. Button everything back up and hope for the best.

The box on the back of tv that the coax cable turns onto is broken. Can we go buy a cable peice and just solder it back on or do we need to order the whole little box?


You can buy the RF jack and solder it back onto the tuner as long as the tuner has not been damaged beyond repair. Inside the tuner the center conductor from the jack solders into the printed circuit board. If any small parts are broken or missing then you will have to replace the tuner.

Broken Antenna Port


If you have already identified where the connection was on the board you will have to access the board to be able to solder back to the points where the old connector was. Once you have identified the two solder points (One should go to ground and the other if you can with the tv on touch it and see if a picture tries to come in or get rid of the snow). Then buy a matching transformer from radio shack or Home Depot, Lowes. Normally this would go on the outside antenna. But you want to take it and clip and strip the ends that have the forks. Solder this to the board, one to ground and the other to the point that would have been center on the old broken piece. This will have a 72 ohm or a connection that your antenna will connect to.

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.

i would also replace the IC with the stronger ones stk392-180's and i would replace both no matter what.

Circuit board


You have to call RCA directy to find a parts rep for your area. Depending on the board, and the where the break is, sometimes a very skilled tech can repair the board. If there are surface mount components on the broken part of the board, then most likely it is not serviceable.

When calling for the price of the board, you will need to have the part numbers for the board, and the model and serial number of the set.

Sometimes, there are EPROM's involved with these boards. They have to be programmed and set up for the particular set, because of necessary calibrations. There are some adjustments that are unique to the particular set. For this, you will need to have this done by an RCA authorized service tech.
