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.

Keep us posted.

How to repair a cracked and broken Ne q'wa Xmas ornament.


These are reverse painted, so the paint is on the inside. I would glue it, then remove the top and pour in PVA Carpenters adhesive, swirl it around and then tip it upside down the drain. Test the adhesive on a small part of the paint first.

Glue the parts together with Super Glue GEL. This is easier to apply.

Broken cable connection on your TV?


Has the screw on connection for the cable on the back of your TV broken off or no longer usable? <br /><br />Here is a quick and inexpensive way to overcome a broken cable connector on the TV if it has RCA inputs available.<br /><br />Go to your local thrift store or look at Garage/Yard sales and look for an old VCR. Most VCR's have an option to connect to the TV with RCA cables and this will bypass the broken cable connection on the TV and save you that expensive repair shop bill and still keep your TV alive for a while longer.<br /><br />Hope this has helped you out and saved you some money.<br />Robert<br />

I can not program the tv with the cable, which input goes with the cable channel. I have a 32 inch RCA with SRS . HELP


I do not see a question. "Which input goes with the cable channel?" Don't understand. Is there a cable box or SAT box connected to the TV? What kind of cable is running to the TV from the source? If you just have the coax cable going from the wall to the TV, then you need to auto format the channels. Select menu on the TV remote. Find Sources or Cable. Select "Cable" not "Air". Select Auto Format. May take several minutes. Input selector from TV remote should be "TV".

The attachment point for the coax cable was pulled off-broken off


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.

I have an RCA F36676ET that has a broken cable connection. TV works fine with DVD player but satellite connection not recognized. Can the cable connection be replaced? Can I do it myself?


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.

The part is called and "F" connector. It can be purchased but it also muist be soldered in place. This is not a trivial task. The F connector is part of the tuner. For a set of this size, it may be easier to replace the tuner rather than fool around with a repair attempt. Depending upon how it was broken, the PC board inside the tuner may be broken as well requiring tuner replacement anyway.

Coaxial input jack on the TV broken off so I cannot connect my coaxial cable from wall


If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.

RCA 36" making loud pop then screen goes black


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!
