NOT REALLY BUT YOU COULD GET ROUND IT BY BUYING A £20 DIGIBOX (FREEVIEW BOX) AND CONNECTING IT TO THE TV WITH SCART AND ARIEL GOES INTO THE DIGIBOX (FREEVIEW BOX).

MEANS YOU CANNOT WATCH ANALOG ON THE TV ANYMORE BUT DIGITAL IS MUCH BETTER.

question is what inputs did you connect it to with what kind of cable? This makes a big difference.

What inputs on the cable box and into what inputs on the TV?

Zeneth A25A11D 25' tv has broken cable connector


Sorry, I miss-read this post. I orginally thought it said your cable broke, meaning the coax that went to the back of the TV.
The coax input is more than likely a part of the main board. I am not a tv expert but as with laptops and input modules that break you have to soder the peice on or replace the whole board.
Easier to switch to a/v inputs as mentioned in Solution #1.
I could not find a spec sheet for your model but did find this for you to give you an idea on what is entailed in replacing a broken RF connection. This may or may not apply to your model, but here it is anyway.

I would suggest letting someone who is qualified in TV repair fix it.
Here are the service manuals for your Zenith. Download both and then extract to your desktop for easy access. I downloaded and extracted myself to make sure it was a working copy so you are good to go.

Philip TV - Cable connection on back of TV broke off. How do I repair it?


If the rf input is broken off you can usually get the rf input replaced pretty cheap from a tv repair store, if it is the component or composite inputs then you have to replace the Small signal Board which is a way more expensive fix

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.
