So I snapped off the cable input on my RCA 52" rear projection. I am new to having a big TV like this, so I'm not sure whether this is a problem I can fix myself, or one I need to have a professional repair. I think I can pull the panel off the back of the TV to access the cable input, but I am not sure. I assume this piece is replaceable. I am hopeing someone out there might know. Taking this TV to a repair shop will be a big pain in the butt. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Snapped cable input
It all depends on what actually broke. Those input connectors are usually 90 degree metal units, soldered to the circuit board, so possibly the connector took a chunk of board with it. Any competent TV technician should be able to repair this in your home, especially if you tell them what the problem is when you call them. That way they will know what parts to bring.

Connect RCA wires (yellow, red, white) from the box's "out" to the tv's Input 1 or 2 on the back input panel of the tv set. If you don't have RCA's you may use a RGA- jumper wire (cable wire made into a 4 ft segment by the tech or buy a short cable wire from the Walmart, Target, or Goodwill store) Connect this wire to the "cable in" on the tv and the other end to the "cable out" on the box.ADDITIONALLY make sure you have the right input settings selected on the tv with the input selection you make with the wire connection you choose.
change the input, i have the same configuration ps3 and 52 inch rca, just plug it into front and change the input to front, if that dont work try this, since your ps3 probably came off a tv that had hdmi you need to hold down the ps3 button for 9 seconds and it will ask you if you want to change it to lower settings, but first make sure you have the input right
are you looking for this part? http://www.partstore.com/Part/Thomson/RCA/264658/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=Thomson&ModelBrandName=RCA&ModelNumber=D52W17BYX1 if so, just make sure your model number is on the listed devices.
i have noticed that the new tuners are missing a few pins. i believe that it will work. what is the exact make and model of the set there is a tiny printing of the model above the model # i has d52w15...yx....something. you need this to cross reference the tuner. let me know and i will cross ref it
The silver box is called the TUNER. Call an RCA distributor, such as Union Electronics or Herman-Panson and order it by description by asking for the tuner for your model number. Have the location number on the board, just in case.
