The piece where the cable goes into the TV has broken and my husband attempted to repair it with glue but that did not work-in his frustration he tossed the piece out and now I don't know what part to look for or purchase-is this TV trash now? Help!

Re: RCA TV 32 " not cable connection
The part you need is called the "F" connector and costs about $2. The problem is that this part needs to be soldered to the tuner board. As long as the board was not broken when the connector was dislodged, you should be ok. This is a simple repair for a shop. Not so simple without some experience. Check around and see what the least expensive repair will be as you already know the problem.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If the DVR has RCA-type connectors, yellow to yellow for picture, and white to white for sound. Tune tv to line input.
If the DVR supports outputting everything on coax, use a piece of coax cable, and tune tv to channel 3.
Your coax cable from wall has to go into DVR first, then out to tv.
With most tv's I've serviced, the cable connector is connected directly to the tuner module. The tuner module may be damaged beyond repair, depending upon how much physical force was applied to the cable connector. I would take it to a reputable repair shop and let them provide you a honest estimate of repair. They may be able to resolder the cable connector to the tuner module.
You'll need to take it to a repair shop. There are high voltage capacitors inside a television which will hold a charge even after all power is removed. I would highly advise against making this repair yourself.
If you mean the cable connector is broken off, then yes, that can be replaced. A company called MCM Electronics sells replacement connectors, but the repair requires soldering skills. Incorrectly done, the repair attempt can create even more problems. I suspect your satellite receiver has A/V outputs like the DVD player. Why not connect the receiver the same way as the DVD player and forget about the cable connection? You'll get improved picture and sound that way. If the set has only a single set of A/V inputs, you can cheat and use "Y-adapters" available at Radio Shack to connect the two sources to the same jacks, or you can get an A/V switch to do it.
I couldn't tell you where to find a free service manuel as it seems these days every ones looking for a buck for what they offer, but as for fixing it it is possible that the switching board ( the board that houses all the function switches ) is cracked. You can remove the board by removing the 1/4 inch screws and find the cracked section by visually inspecting it. With a soldering iron , solder and some bear wire, you can patch the broken board. After repairing the broken connections, apply some epoxy glue on the back of the board where the crack was and reinstall the board after the glue drys. It should work fine after the minor repair. Good Luck
It seems that there is EHT Leakage from the EHT Transformer Anode Cap!
Generally happens during rainy seasons, or if your TV is placed near a window or near an AC, due to excess of moisture in the air.
Unplug the TV and wait for an hour to discharge all residual charge in Capacitors. Open the back, and look for a thick red cable leading from the FBT. (It is a Black Block with a thick red cable running from it to the rear of the Picture Tube). Take a sturdy Electrical cable with the conductor visible at both ends. (Multimeter Leads will do.) Now, ground one end of this lead to any Metal part of the Chassis, and gently ease the other end under the Cap of the EHT Cable. BE VERY CAREFUL, as there are very High Voltages involved!
Do it Gently, and you will hear a POP! This indicates that the Electrical Charge inside tha Picture has been discharged.
Now Take dry cloth and wipe clean the area around the Anode Cap.
Close the back of the TV, and switch it ON. In all likelihood your problem should be resolved.
BUT, I REPEAT, DO NOT DO THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, AND ARE VERY VERY CAREFUL.
Otherwise, seek professional help!
