This model uses a tuner which is flat on the signal board---board would have to be removed to replace the fitting--NOT A DO IT YOURSELF type of repair.

A viable option is to use a cable box (or satellite etc) and input it into one of the Audio/ Video inputs on the back of the set---this bypasses the cable fitting.

If you do not have cable etc---get a old vcr (it does not have to be able to play a tape etc---connect your signal to the unit and use its Audio and Video outputs to input into one of the A/V inputs on the TV---

If you cannot fix it get around it---I have 30 years of experience and if I was to fix this cable fitting I would estimate the repair between 100 and 200 dollars (almost all labor).

Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help and would appreciate your rating my help.

I have a kenwood dnx7200 it's just started saying broken cable connection please confirm connection how do I fix it

This unit is a upgrade/replacement for vehicles that have a dash configuration big enough to accommodate it? Who did the installation? And was the proper adapter cables used to connect the Kenwood unit to the wiring of the host vehicle? This is a complicated unit to install, and is probably beyond the means of your average DIY-er, who has replaced a few car stereos, and thinks he is up to the challenge. Take it back to whoever did the initial installation, and let them diagnose the problem....I'd forget about fixing it yourself.

Where you plug in to charge is broke


If you broke the lighter socket on car dash, replace it.

If you broke the cable replace the cable. Here the spare:Garmin Power Cables

If you instead damaged the power socket on your Garmin, call the Garmin number listed in the owners manual. The Sat Nav must be sent to Garmin for repair:Garmin ' Contact

Next time use a Suction Mount Windscreen Holder

HDMI switching problems, ongoing, HDMI board has been replaced

Congrats? There's barely any information to go off of here, but assuming the receiver has broke multiple times, you need to contact Onkyo tech support and/or a better repair center to see if there is a different problem in the system. HDMI is a very complicated and annoying connection system. You should post your actual symptoms and components in your system along with how everything is connected and we'll have a better chance or narrowing down the problem, along with solving it.

Driver side window not going up fully on my Audi A4 Cabriolet 2002, it eventually will go up by pressing the button gently. Sounds like a cable breaking or broke, but if so how is the window still able to...

There really is no cable. The power window runs on tracks inside the door, which is attached to a motor which is also inside the door. It's very tough to get to to fix it, lots of screws and you would need to take the door panel off. It's not something I even try to fix myself, and I consider myself very mechanically inclined. I have replaced a window motor once, and took a large chunk of meat and skin out of my finger in the process. Hope it helps. If you want to try fixing it yourself just know, it's VERY complicated.

Sony STR-DE825 Receiver Digital "Noise"

Make sure you have fib/opt cables are securely inserted in right ports. Switch through "input modes" on front panel; opt, anal, auto. This unit is tricky and unecessarily complicated. Read through manual carefully!
