Hi,

I am assuming that what you are referring to as "metal block" is the tuner assy. and that the "slot/cable receptor" is the chassis mounted 75ohm TV "F" Coax Connector (female). This is easily replaced and the component should be readily available from most electronics part stores.

To perform a DIY and replace this, the TV has to be opened, the metal cover of the tuner pried open, and the F connector replaced and eventually soldered in place.

Incidentally, a nice tutorial on how to go about this is posted here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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!

Tv to dark cant see nothing tv's to dim


On the back of the TV, to the right of the I/O panel, there are 2 vertical slot shaped openings on a raised bit of the plastic case. Behind the lower slot is the screen adjuster. Using a phillips screw driver, turn the adjuster clockwise to increase the brightness. Behind the upper slot is the focus adjuster.

Zeneth A25A11D 25' tv has broken cable connector


Sorry, I miss-read this post. I orginally thought it said your cable broke, meaning the coax that went to the back of the TV.
The coax input is more than likely a part of the main board. I am not a tv expert but as with laptops and input modules that break you have to soder the peice on or replace the whole board.
Easier to switch to a/v inputs as mentioned in Solution #1.
I could not find a spec sheet for your model but did find this for you to give you an idea on what is entailed in replacing a broken RF connection. This may or may not apply to your model, but here it is anyway.

I would suggest letting someone who is qualified in TV repair fix it.
Here are the service manuals for your Zenith. Download both and then extract to your desktop for easy access. I downloaded and extracted myself to make sure it was a working copy so you are good to go.

I have a Sanyo TV that has a broken cable block.


Take it to any TV repair shop. They'll solder things up so they work. It may not look as cute, but it'll work. Look in the yellow pages. If it's the cable modem you're talking about, contact your provider, they'll replace it at a price.

Cable connecter broke off?


It would probably cost more to have someone fix it than just replace it.If you or someone you know can use a solder iron you might get lucky and resolder conections, but most times its too hard to get at the circuit board to affect repairs and the connector usually gets mangled so bad it won't fit right anymore. Or you can try to avoid using this connection and use a different input. But you would need either a cable/satellite box or vcr (with the same kind of connection that broke on TV) and change the input used on the tv to the new connection such as 3 wire AV connection (with the yellow,red and white wires)

DVI port on Sony Trinitron KV-32HS500 not standard.What fits it?


I've just recently connected my old 32" Sony KV-32HS510 to my HP G60 Laptop via an HDMI (laptop) to DVI HDTV port(TV) with a cable.

I'm running Windows Vista on my laptop with the nVidia software. Once I've plugged in the TV to the HDMI port, the software initializes (recognizes the TV) and then I can select it as my second 'monitor' in the nVidia control panel.

I found I had to tinker with the resolution settings in the nVidia program to find an optimal resolution where the sides of the screen weren't 'cut off' by the TV.. I finally ended up with the resolution 1152x768 (I believe). It might be different for everybody, as I'm told Vista might do things differently than XP... But you should be able to tinker with the resolution settings and adjust the screen size...

(hope this helps with the second post - above)

Coaxial output broken


If the connector end is not damaged and the tuner circuit board is not broken, you can solder this back onto tuner, and solder the end back on the circuit board. You should take the tuner out to do this proceedure. A TV shop usually charges $50.00 to do this.
