    Can someone please tell me if the RCA part# 264658 is the same as the FE6241 for the RCA rear projection model # D52W20. I have ordered and rec'd a new tuner (264658) but 2 additional pins are missing on the opposite end of the F connector on the tuner other than the 2 that are originally missing.

    Looking at the PCB it doesn't look like there are any traces or ground plane that connect to these two spots, but I'd like to be sure before I solder it into the board.

Often they can be soldered back onto the tuner. But the tuner itself may need replacement which you can get tuners and the entire SSB which has the tuners already on them from

How to replace your TV tuner "F" connector.

You were moving your TV but forgot to remove the cable.

Suddenly you get to the end of the coax's length and keep on going. Out comes the "F" connector from the tuner. What do you do now?.

If you were lucky you can install a new "F" connector with some work. If you were not lucky you will have to install a new tuner. If you do not have the skills necessary to install the "F" connector (it is tedious), you may want to opt for a new tuner which should not be that expensive anyway.

If you have good soldering skills and can work on small items you may be able to do this. It requires removing the lower back of the unit, removing the board that the tuner is mounted to.

Depending on the type of TV, Direct view, LCD flatscreen or projector there are various ways the board could be removed.

Usually the tuner is on the small signal board. To remove this board you will need to take out all the screws around the perimeter so the board can be lifted out.

Some units also have plastic fasteners which need to be popped loose. They are pushed up through the board and help to stabilize it. The hold down method should be obvious if you study the board.

Once the board is removed turn it over to the solder side and unsolder the tuner and remove it from the board. Next you will need to pry the sides off the tuner.

Mark them left and right or in some method so you can reinstall them on the proper side. They generally have grounding tabs which need to be located in a particular space.

Once you can see the solder side of the board check it for cracks or damage and if possible remove the old connector wire from the "F" connector.

If the board is damaged you may have to replace the tuner. They are available at and usually are under $50 US.

Order a new one, reinstall it and reassemble the unit and your unit should be ready to operate.

If the board is not damaged you will need a new "F" connector for PC board mounting.

They are available at .

When you get the part you will have to fit it to the unit and solder it into place. This should be obvious. I always solder the connector to the tuner case the entire circumference of the connector and have never had any repeat repairs. To do the soldering on that you will need a 120/140 watt soldering gun. They are available at .

If the board has no hidden cracks it should work when reassembled. Reassemble the tuner, install in the board, reassemble the TV and you should be operational.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

I have a RCA 52"

This happens all the time. It just might be fixable. This connector is known as the "f" connector or female coaxal connector. Most average electronics technician can fix them. This connector is attached to a component called the tuner. The tuner is what takes the signal and selects the channel the tv recieves. To replace the connector it means removeing the cuircit board that the tuner is on and then removeing the tunner, disasembling the tuner. Now until you find a good tech, there is another option... take an vcr and use the rca inputs on set. essitally tunning the set through the vcr. Now you will have to change channels through the vcr. but it will work. also there is a chance that the tuner might be damaged. just depends on the damage that occured when the connector was broke off..,let me know if you need any more help

The antenna/cable in threaded piece has come out of the back of the tv. How can I fix that. I tried to put it back but it won't stay. I think I need a new one.

These sets have what is known as a on board Tuner. This means that the Tuner is not replaceable without replacing the entire Board. The good news is that you can replace the Cable/RF connector as long as the shield it attached to is not broke or too bent. Most of the Cable/RF connectors used in these sets have PCB mount . You will have to remove the Signal Board and unsolder the center connection of the broken connector left on the Board. Remount the new
Connector and solder the center connection. You may need a collar nut to secure the Connector the the shield.
I hope this helps,

whats wrong with the old tuner? did the connector break? depending on the damage the connector can be replaced to replace the tuner right out i would call a medium difficult level. it invovles removeing the signal board the board with the tuner on it simply unsoldering and replacings care should be taken not damage surface mounted components. at the shop it is possible we repair these tuner which involves opening the can tuner and soldering a new connector to the can of the tuner.

Help me

If you are decent with soldering iron you can repair it yourself. Remove the back, and remove the signal board from the unit. Unsolder the Tuner from the board( If I've lost you already, call a TV shop for repair) Remove the shields on the tuner and inspect for damage to the tuner itself. If the board is in good shape, replace the RF connector with RCA # 215543. you'l have to unsolder the old ends connector ( the wire thats still there broken ) from the board, then attach the new end, and solder to the board. Then using high heat, solder the Connector to the tuner housing. Replace tuner on board, hook everything back up, and you should be in business.

Cable connector broken

You can buy replacement antenna jacks for this. What you have to do is remove the tuner and it's shields, then unsolder the little tab off the board of the tuner which is what remains when they break off. Then you can resolder the new jack in place and the center pin back to the board of the tuner.
