How do I replace the outlet coaxial outlet unit on the back of the unit? I opened up the television to see that it has been soldered pretty well to the board. I know that the board is sensitive and I don't want to mess anything up. I bought the replacement piece but am not sure how to remove the old one to replace it with the new one? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: coaxial outlet broke off
I assume that you pulled the F connector out of the back of the TV. In most Sharps, the F connector is attached directly to the tuner, which is the rectangular silver metal box soldered to the main PC board. Did you buy a replacement F connector or the entire tuner? Either way, the tuner must be unsoldered from the main board and the new F connector is soldered into the old tuner or the new tuner is soldered in its place. If you do not have experience soldering PC boards then let a qualified tech handle it for you.

Coaxial cables are all standard for that kind of TV. I'm about 99% sure on that so just go to a electronics shop and buy one and double check with the person at the shop but I'm sure you'll be save just replacing your old one with the same size!!!!
Its part of the tuner in most cases and not real easy to replace for a novice---sometimes the tuner will have to be replaced as when it broke off it may have damaged the circuit board inside the tuner.
there is a possible way around this: With a box of any kind being used that has the Audio/video jacks for output of signal you run cables from them to a set of matching inputs on the rear of set, leave set on that input and change channels with the box--bypass the tuner completely.
If the tuner and board it is only sold as a complete unit it will be expensive to repair.
Unplug your television and turn the set around so the back of the set is facing you.
Disconnect the antenna or cable
connection from the television's "VHF," "Antenna In" or similarly worded
port if it is connected.
Examine your splitter and notice one end of the device has a coaxial port while the other end has two coaxial ports.
Plug the coaxial end of the television antenna into one of the two coaxial ports on the splitter.
Plug the coaxial cable coming
from the cable television connection outlet into the second coaxial port
on the splitter. Use the port next to the one you used to plug the
television antenna into.
Place one end of a 2 foot piece of coaxial cable into the single coaxial port on the splitter.
Plug the other end of the 2 foot piece of coaxial cable into your television's "VHF," "Antenna In" or similarly worded port.
Plug in the television set and turn it around so the screen is facing you.
Use your television's remote
control to access the "Menu," "Setup" or similarly worded function. Or
press the "Menu" or "Setup" button on the front of the television.
Select the "Channel Setup" or similarly worded function. Set the Input to "Cable" and perform an "Auto Scan" to locate all available cable television channels.
Select the "Channel Setup" or
similarly worded function, then set the input to "Antenna" and perform
an "Auto Scan" to locate all available broadcast channels. Your
television will locate both broadcast and cable television channels.
Scan the channels on your
television to make sure all available channels have been found. If you
are missing any channels that you know you should have, manually program
the channels into your television using the "Channel Setup," "Manual
Channel Setup" or similarly worded function.
The coaxial input can be soldered back in. You will need a new one however. Sometimes the internals in the tuner (where coaxial goes) may be damaged when coaxial connection breaks out. If that is the case a tech may charge more money. But just to replace the connection should be relatively inexpensive.
Cost of that board is 352.00 if they are even available First CK 2 fuses thereis one on each of turner small brown rectrangle looking caps/but they arre fuses/ if they are open set will not startup.Also replace IF connector.to turner.
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.
