    Bemur,



    Thank you for trying to help. I apologize for not being more clear.I unintentionally gave the impression that my cable was destroyed. This is not the case. The cable is fine. It's the receptacle on the television itself that I ripped out. That part is still screwed onto the cable. I unscrewed whatever you call this part and tried to reattach it to the tv. This is why I wondered if there is anything I can do. Hope I described my problem a little better. Thank you again for your assistance.

This can be repaired easily by a repair shop. I have done over 100 of these. The connector itself runs about $2-$4 and nneds to be reconnected into the tuner box. The only possible problem is that when the old one was torn out, the PC board may have been damaged. While this is rare, if the board has been broken, the only remedy is to replace the entire tuner.

Hi,

Chances are that the cable was ripped off the connector. This is relatively easy to do but assuming that you have not done this before directions would be needed. Pls see this link for step by step instructions. Of course you would need to remove the connector at the back of the TV and see if you can still use that or purchase a replacement from any electronics parts store.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate the postback/comment.

    I believe I have a better idea now of your concern. At the end of the connector (the one at the back of the TV) would be a smaller version of the coaxial cable. This would also have a center conductor/wire with a braided shield/ground wire. In turn this cable normally leads to the tuner block. If the cable was severed, then it would be necessary to reconnect them using a soldering iron. Alternately, such a pigtail (connector with wire/cable & ends with another type of connector) maybe available from electronic parts store or even your friendly neighborhood electronic repair shops.

    Cheers.

How do i fix my tv


Check or replace the video cord, if its an rca connection it will be the yellow one, usually they are in a group of 3 yellow red and white)
if its coaxial (it would generally be a single black cable with a metal screw on end make sure they are tight on both the set and the box.
Sorry but when my rear projection did this it was a circuit board that controlled the back lights. A trip to the repair store was needed.

How do i connect my cable box to my tv


Connect the coaxial "Cable In" cable to the "Cable In" port on the back of your TV cable receiver box. Make sure your receiver box is not plugged in yet. 2 Take the TV audio/visual cable, and connect the red, blue and green ends to the corresponding color "Cable Out" ports on the back of your cable receiver.3 Take the other ends and plug them in to the red, blue and green ports under "V1" on the back of your TV.4 Take the audio cord with the red and white ends, and connect them to the corresponding color ports of "Audio Out" on the back of your cable receiver; then, connect the other ends to the corresponding color "Audio In" ports on the back of your TV.5 Turn on the power of your TV cable receiver box first. Allow it to run through the boot sequence. When you see the time appear on the front of the cable box, you may turn on the television and check your signal.

    Cable company switched to digital, now my Ant A port on the vs-50603 does not receive signals. I can somewhat view the analog signals through my PIP only. other tv's in the house came back with signal 5...


    When the cable company offers you digital cable, you typically need a cable box to unscramble the digital channels. Therefore you need to connect either a coaxial cable from the cable box's RF output, if it has one, or connect 3 RCA cables from the yellow, white and red jacks on the rear panel of the cable box to the TV. Analog channels only (if available) will go straight thru over the coaxial RF hookup. They are not scrambled. Select the proper input source on the TV for the cable box.

    Model d52w23 coaxial connect


    Some of those models were actually just big monitors without any on board tuners so They didnt have any need for coax cable inputs. You most likely have one of the monitors.

    Broken coax connection on back of unit


    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.

    Cable plug broke off


    Well first repair the coaxial cable going to your antenna. There is no way you can use RCA cables as a substitution for coaxial cable. They have totally two different properties. You can use the coaxial and feed it to a VCR/DVD player where you can output the signal with RCA/composite cables. Basically, use your VCR/DVD player as a tuner for your TV.

    RCA HDTV Cabel Connection


    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.
