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
Your tv has a input named COMPONENT to make work this input you need three RCA conectors (RED GREEN BLUE) plus two audio RCA Conectors red and white. If you have another set that can be plug in in this input and that set (dvd recorder, in ex.) has a digital tuner then you got it, But the Magic about the decoder box is that only cost 40.00 +- dllrs and send the signal to your antenna connector or RCA analog conector. Good luck!
HD doesnt come over the coaxial cable into the TV. It has to use HDMI, composite (5 color RCA cables) or DVI. they can all be soldered back on if you ripped one out. easier to use another input if you have multiple formats back there.
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.
