Re: brother ax-12 cable detached
The pulley is broken and you have to remove it and try to drill a hole to attach the cord. A new pulley should be available from Brother. I have seen repairmen jam a small piece of metal inside the cracked area, but it is a little bit tough if you have no experience. You have to remove the covers and the main logic board and the carrier motor asm. Then the pin holdong the pulley. A shop would charge about 50 dollars.

Do you mean its detached from the cable? If so, see if you can reach the attachment point for the cable and pull in direction of the cable to release. If this is helpful a thumbs up or clicking helpful would be greatly appreciated. Good LUCK.
Before you go that far, realize that the cable itself may be the problem. Usually poor picture quality can be traced to poor cable connections. Also, another possibility is poor connections inside the tuner of the set. I assume that you are using a cable box. Some of the newer boxes have direct video connections which will connect as you describe. Check the condition of all of the cables and connectors before yo invest in anything.
This is probably the ice maker water feed becoming detached from the back of the appliance. This is a fault of a leaky watervalve or low pressure allowing water to drip into the feed pipe where it freezes building up until the pipe blocks where water pressure causes it to bacome detached. Change the water valve and refit the pipe ensure there are no airleaks into the freezer.
