Re: coalial TV cable
If you mean the plug on the end of your incoming cable line that connects to the back of the TV or cable box, Radio Shack sells replacements. You can get crimp-on ones (a good mechanical connection but requires a crimping tool, not expensive) or ones that twist onto the cable without special tools. If this is a connector on the end of a cable between a cable box or VCR and your TV, just get a new cable and don't worry about repair.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

If your DVD player has HDMI, use it. If not, you'll need to buy a cord for it. Look on the back of the TV and the back of the DVD player. There should be colored connectors on each one. On the TV, it will be an input. On the DVD player, it'll be an output. There will be either 3 connectors or 5 connectors on the TV and DVD player. You'll need a cord with either 3 connectors on each end (red, white, yellow), or one with 5 (red, white, blue, green, red). Once you figure out which cord you'll need, buy it from any store that sells TVs and hook it up. The link below has pictures Video Connectors Tutorial Hardware Secrets
The TV is probably not seeing the signal. Are the cords connected in the right slots on the cable box and TV (cable TV wire into the cable input connector on box, and cable out to the TV in the cable out connector on the box, and then connected to the right connector on the back of the TV)? Or, maybe you may need to go into the TV screen options and choose the the right external source that will allow the TV to see the signal.
Could be.Try using a dvd or vhs player into the A/V 1 input and then switch the input to same. That will make sure the video circuit is working. When you screw the cable connector on just do it hand tight, to many people use pliers and over tighten the connector then damage the tuner inside the set. Without the cable screwed into the set can you rotate the cable jack? If so, then the tuner needs to be repaired. Not a major job for a tech.
It is called an RF connector.Plug your cable coming into the house from outside into the RF connector,then plug the RF connector into the TV.The TV needs to be on channel 3 or 4,depending on what it is set on the console,to use the console.There should be a selector on the console back.If there is a strong broadcast on the channel you select to use,just change to the other channel.If you have the proper channel,the TV signal will go away and the game will appear.You do not need the A/V cables.
Connect the cable cord to the ANT IN connector on the back of the TV. Here are the instructions with a diagram:
Note: This is not a digital ready TV. If your cable signals are digital or encrypted you will need a cable box to convert them.
Go purchase a coax male f connector, and the crimpers. Cut off 1/2 inch of rubber sleeving and fold the metal shielding back. Now cut the with part a quarter from the end but not all the way. You want the center piece to poke out. Now slide the f connector on and crimp.
ok if its only the rf cable and the ac cord yes you can do it your self.you have one cable out from the sat reciver going to the dish. Find an area that the pooch didnot chew through cut off the bad part of the wire. find the wire that goes to the tv set. if its the coax disconnect from the reciver on both sides and go to the store and buy a new cable (unless you have coax wire and know how to put on f fittings) also while your there buy a small extenstion for the other cable you cut. also your gonna need a a female barrel connector as we;ll as an rg6 type rf fitting for the end you cut. have the guy at the store explain to ya how to put on a f fitting. If the ac cord was chewed buy a simple cheap extenstion cord too. Go home and first put back on the cable you took off the output of the sat reciver and the other end to your tv set. then put on the f fitting the guy explained to ya how to put on and then install the barrel connector then the short extention wire to the other side of the barrel connector then the other end of the rxtenstion cable to the sat output. Now if the power cord is chewed im surprised the pooch is not fryed!!!lol Simply cut off the bad part take the extention cord and cut of the end you dont need take off about 1 and a 1/2 inches of the insulation on bothe parts(reciver and cord) twist together and tape separatly or use wire nuts on them . then you are good to go. BUt one more little thing are you using video cables between the tv and the sat. reciver?? well why didnt you say so LOL simplyu pull out of both ends and go to rat shack or something like them and buy an inexpensive pair of cables and remeber yellow is always video red is alway right audio and white is left audio Hope this clears things up for ya.!!!!
