I have INSIGNIA TV 42"

Hi shaan99,
There's some shop that expertised in tv tuner repair. But this shop is very hard to find and sometimes the cost will be the same like the original price of it. You can replaced the tuner by yourself, all you have to do is prepare soldering iron, disoldering pump and soldering lead and the tuner replacement
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

I am having sound issues, the volume cuts out. I read somewhere that if I change my connections to the dvd player and so forth that it might help. I tried that yesterday and it worked for about 3-4 hours...

There no sound card in LCD tvs,only a Tuner board to get air brocast signal that included sound.Tries to reset ur tv by unplug,replug the tv about an hour later.Go to the tv menu go to PICTURE down to reset.Now the Tuner board is reset to factory setting it should fix ur sound problems.Not than buy a refurbish Tuner board for the replacement.

My son tripped over the cable cord and the cable/antenna input came off. Is it repairable and is it costly to get it fixed

It depends if the connector broke the tuner it is attached to. Most times the chassis of the set would need to go into the shop. I would generally charge $80.00-$120.00 if the tuner was still good - a new tuner would cost $60-$100 more if bad
The better solution is to use the video audio inputs (if on satellite or cable box) or use the video inputs by changing channels through the VCR (if on cable or antenna and a VCR is available)

How to upgrade Samsung LCD TV from a SD Tuner to HD Tuner

Not to my knowledge there isn't. Sorry maybe you can apply for the discount DTV card to buy the settop converter while there is still time. Go to it takes a while to get the discount cards so act fast.
Hope this helps

NO! he is not right. He wants to make a sale! Go to, get the telephone number and tell them the numbers off the sides of the tuner. Or give them the model number. If they do not have a tuner(and I am sure they will, ask them how much it would be, if you sent them the tuner in your set to be overhauled. Good Luck
