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.

You can access the SD slot without having the back cover off of the TV. The SD slot is covered with a L-shaped bracket held on the TV with a single Phillips screw. The plate is located in the recessed part of the back panel to the right of the HDMI port. Good Luck

That is the ink guide. If the plastic strip connector (the slot cut on both sides) is not damaged/broken, the other metal tab may have fallen making the plastic strip to fall. It is usually soldered on the metal frame of your printer, find the missing tab and solder it back in. You should find a trace of the tab's original location.

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.

How do i hook up a nintendo to my tv which cords go where and can someone walk me through it


Round peg into the round hole. Red peg on the red slot. etc. If the wire from the nintendo doesn't fit the slot on the tv then you're in the wrong slot. if the wire from the nintendo fits the slot on the tv (and is the same color if you are using red/white/yellow rca cables) then you're good. here's a hint on connection types (you will not mix): 1. RCA (red/white/yellow round connectors) Red=right audio sound White=left audio sound Yellow=video connect to the slots that look like they want some. 2. Coaxial (stiff cable with a pinner poking out of the end -- same cable that connects you to cable tv) just hook it up by itself; it carries audio and video. 3. Component (red/green/blue)(red/white) two 'bundles' red=red component of video green=green component of video blue=blue component of video red=right audio white=left audio 4. VGA + (red/white) VGA=video (computer monitor cable) red=right audio white=left audio 5. HDMI (flat hdmi cable. you spent $30 on this 3 foot ****) HDMI=audio and video 6. hugs and kisses hugs=video kisses=audio (both sides)

Hdmi cord


the HDMI cable sends all the audio and video down one line, and unscrambles scrambled high def content when required, and fits in the rear of the tv, the slot looks very similair to a usb slot.

If you cable box has an HDMI slot you can use that instead of a scart lead and choose HDMI on your tv output
