Good Day;
This is normally replaceable if the PC board was not damaged. The 'RF' connector is a soldered (crimped) on item. But don't despair; most projections that I now of have video inputs of some type.
If you have a cable, sat box or VCR you can bypass the connector by using 'RCA' cables. On one of the mentioned above devices hook the cable from box to TV. The 'box' will have a video output connector and the TV will have an input connector. The cables are color coded yellow (video), red and white (audio). Switch TV's input to correct input eg. input one, input 2.
Respond back @ mmrkcar@yahoo.com for more person to person information. Good Luck, Big Irish.

I am having connection issues with an LG 55lh40 television, a HD DVR from Directv, a PS3 and a DVD/VCR combo. The TV seems to be working good, but does not seem to be picking up an HDMI cable of any kind....


No picture
when connecting HDMI:
Check HDMI cable over version 1.3.
The HDMI cables don’t support HDMI version 1.3, it cause flickers or no screen
display. In this case use the latest cables that support HDMI version 1.3.

I triped over the cable cord. Cable cord end that protrudes fron TV was broken off. need to replace it so I can get cable reception.Please Help .Other wise the T V was showing great.


I'm sorry to tell you this ... when this happened with the TV at work (a camp;ing resort), we found the "F" connection was mounted to a printed circuit board attached to the 'motherboard' of the TV. The board was more than $100.00. We bought a new board and the new kid got to it before I could and he mixed up the wires. After the technician was done with it, the bill was another $250.00.

What I can recommend to you to prevent future damage is dont connect the cable to the TV -- get a short piece of cable and fasten your TV to a "F" fitting stand-off which would be firmly mounted to non strategic part of your TV. Then connect the cable to the stand off. Next time it is pulled on, it will pull the end off your cable (fix for a couple bucks) and not tear the guts out of your TV.

The parts are probably available to you. Make sure you have the right parts in your hand before you do anything ... and then take lots of pictures and notes as you remove the old and insert the new.

I hope this helps you ...

Does not pick up cable satellite signal


Do you have the satelite hooked threu the regular cable input? If so hook it thru one of the video inputs instead; composite video or component video. the picture and sound will be better and you will be by-passing the problem area of your Tv ( the tuner).

The picture on my Sony Trinitron XBR blinks off and on.


Their is no more you can do.
You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use the TV and your problems WILL multiply.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.

Please give is a good rating.

I wont to remove front panel


If you mean the front access panel to the projector bulb, start by loosening the screws at each end. They are facing to the back - one each end of lower corners. They are larger and look like you use a coin to turn them.

Now pull the top of the panel out. This is not easy. There are three places holding it on: middle and toward each end. Pull the ends first until they "pop" out. Then unhook the bottom of each end so they are free. Last pull the middle connector loose.

This may sound confusing, but it all makes sense once you get the panel off and see how it was connected.

Panisonic projection tv pt-53wx52f


There is a mechanical adjustment on the tubes themselves when it was dropped it could have knocked it out of alignment, or the Convergence ICs are bad with is a common problem with CRT projection tvs.
Mechanically adjusting the tubes can be tricky I wouldn't suggest working on it unless you have some kind of experence with tvs. But if you do adjust the red and blue to the green.

A DVI cable does not have an audio connection, along with the DVI you still have to run an audio line from the device (DVD player, cable box, satellite receiver) to the TV. HDMI contains both audio and video.
