As long as the PC board inside the tuner module is not broken, then the set is fixable. This is a tricky repair however and probably not a DIY. The part costs around $4. A local repair shop should be able to fix this for you for a reasonable labor cost.

    Thanks Dan. The tuner case is badly damaged and one wire is pulled out of the solder joint. Appliance Parts sells the tuner module TU17101 for $19. I may go that route and have an expert replace it. I am a DIY but not electronics.

    With the tuner that cheap, I would recommend that option as well. I have replaced many of these connectors over the years (enough times to stock the part). The wire that is pulled out is the center "pin" of the connector.

    Change the tuner. If you can solder, you can do this yourself. Just remember that the case is soldered to the board along with the pins. Also, the case tabs are bent over.

I have a RCA 52"


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

The cable connector has been broken off. is there any way of fixing this without replacing the entire board


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.

Coaxial hookup broke off. Can i use an s cable through vcr? need instructions.


If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!

TV ANT Jack Broke off and lost cable viewing


Yes it can be replace only if it just a connector adapter connected independently unto tv tuner. But if it is with the tv tuner as a whole. You will replace the entire tv tuner. Just bring the part as reference to your favorite electronic store selling tv parts.

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.

Rca tv


It is called and RF connector. Unless you are very skilled at removing the tuner from the SSB (small signal bd) identifying trace paths and soldering I would reccomend a qualified service provider to replace this part. Another option would be to simply replace the tuner (the rf connector is pressed into the tuner). If you provide the service # from the back of set I can provide the part #'s.

Sound Issue


Check the cable box volume. Most boxes allow you to adjust the volume from the box to the TV, and most likely it's gotten turned down. Use the "Volume" control on the cable box to bring the level back up. (Unless the box remote has been set up for RCA, it controls the box volume. Once you get the volume back up, follow the cable provider's instructions for setting the remote to control an RCA. Then the volume control will function correctly.)

Tuner Problem


Robert,
Replacing the "F" connector is usually all that's needed unless the tuner board is cracked. You could remove the tuner - send it in for repair and re-install it... It would clearly save a few bucks!
Any shop should be able to do that one easy enough... Around here we charge $40.00 including the part to replace the "F" connector and there are shops that charge even less...

Won't tune in all channels


Do you mean the channels from the internal tuner which would be channels 22 to 68, or do you mean satelite channels, as I do not know whether this set has a built in satelite receiver? Satelite broadcasters are often changing frequencies or satelites.- Programs come and go!
