Broken Cable Jack on c27a24t

The cable jack broke off, I still have it. Their is a flat silver wire coming off the back of it that leads to the tv. The is where it broke(after the jack itself came loose from the silver box). That wire seems to lead into a silver box that is maybe 2x1 1/2x1/2. On the circuit board that it is connected to it is labeled TU6000. Anybody know what the silver box is called and how much it is too repair or how to repair it myself?

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.

I have a cablevision box with a set of red, green and blue wires and another set of red and white wires. How do I hook the cable to tv to get cable? The colors on the front and back of the Mickey tv are...

hi. The colored cord you described are for high definition, there should also be some jacks on the back of the cablevision box that say "video out" "left""right"

Find those, and the video out is the yellow in jack on Mickey, and the Left is the white jack on Mickey

If you can't find those, then use the cable tv out from the box to hook it up to your tv.

This is all that is needed to hook up really, just the coax cable from the box to Mickey.
I know Mickey has a antenna cable jack on the back.

Just run a cable from the box to mickey, put Mickey on channel 3, or 4, depending on what the setting is on the box, and you should be good to go!

Yellow video jack on tv is completley out

Two ways you can fix the broken jack:

1) Find a replacement for whatever little panel the a/v jacks are mounted on and change it with the broken one in the TV. This would restore everything cosmetically and functionally. It also means trying to find the part which could be difficult and costly.

2) Go to Radio Shack and buy a video cable with an RCA jack on one end. Cut off whatever connector is on the other end, feed the cable through the hole where the old jack was, and solder the signal and shield wires to the same places the original jack was connected. Cosmetically it might not look great since you'll have the dangling cable, but it will work just fine and is a cheap solution.

If you go with the cable replacement you'll need to do some electronic soldering. If you don't have the tools and skills and don't know anybody who does, a TV shop could do it for a small labor charge. (I have no idea what the charge might be cause I've been out of the shop end of service for nearly 10 years now. But we would have charged our minimum fee of $20 for such a repair. It's probably more now, but ask around.)

How can I still use this TV?

find another TV, VCR (many around now), or other cable using device and exchange - 7 or so screws on  back of tv come right off and expose lower interface where cable jack is.  remove wires, solder salvaged unit in and it works....  Be careful when removing back of tv -  you can pull other wires when doing so.

VCR/DVD prongs broken off in TV

unplug the tv then try to drill a real small hole in the broken off part of the cable that is inthe tv, then take a sharp pointed screw and try to thread it into the hole that you drilled if able to get it started then pull out on the screw to see if it will come out. If not able to do it this way you will have to take the back off and some of and see if you can push the broken part out from the inside. Be sure to unplug your tv from (AC) so you dont get hurt. If that dont work then u probley willhave to take to a shop to get fixed.

Yes, this is an easy problem for a technician to repair, especially if you still have all the broken parts. If nothing else, he can simply install a new jack anywhere on the back of the TV - if he has to order the exact replacement part, it will increase the cost dramatically and take much longer. If you're okay with a quick fix that "will work", anyone handy with a soldering iron can fix it.
