My coax on the back of the TV got ripped out, How to fix it?

We are hoping to get satellite soon but we need to fix the coax first in order to plug the satellite box into the TV, how would we go about fixing this problem our selves? Or should we just have a TV repair man fix the problem.?

    It's not the coax wire we are having problems with it's the actual inlet to the TV, there is a round hole where the plug in should be. Without the plug we cannot plug a satellite box to the TV, we have rabbit ears right now and cannot use them because they need to plug into the back of the TV.

    My tv had the same thing happen. The box is still attached to the circuit board, however, the male end that the cable screws onto sheared off. Can I get it fixed without replacing the whole circuit board?

Most satellite TV companies replace the entire wire themselves. They make sure you are getting the quality that you will be satisfied with so you will pay them monthly as a satisfied customer.

If you have to fix it yourself you need to contact the satellite provider to ask what grade of coax you need. You will most likely have to replace all of the coax you are currently using if you want to get the quality of signal that satellite provides.

Usually when the satellite company installs the dish, they wire it to uour TV (via the box). This is usually all included as part of the installation package. Also, since the companies are competitive, many times installation is free with the contract. I would let them worry about all wireing.

To get HD channels you need to have a cable/satellite box that can receive HD channels AND you have to connect that box to the TV with either an HDMI cable or component jacks. A normal cable/satellite box won't work; neither will a coax antenna cable or consolidated video (yellow RCA) plug. Hope this helps!

Coax to RCA plugs

You need a tuner. For example, you might try a vcr. Most vcr's have a tuner built in, and have rca outputs. Tune the vcr to the channel of the converter box output.

as far as I am aware, you need a standard analogue aerial to receive Freeview, not a dish. The aerial plugs into set top box, which is connected to tv by scart. Freeview is different from Freesat

Hi, Flat panel television instruction manuals are not very easy reading material, there are many connections on the back-you need to plug in some sort of input-always coming from the " out to T.V." of another device. Cable coax's are most common-the cables aren't very flexible that's one way to tell them apart from an RCA cable-usually with red, white, yellow,green and blue colored ends. The red, white and yellows are what we'll focus on for now-the yellow's are for a picture-connect them from an " out to TV" to " video input" on the back of tv, then for sound likewise- red and white colored from an"audio out " to "audio in " if coming from a VCR-you may use the rather un-flexible " screw on" coax connector-same if coming from a satellite/cable box-some satellites require tuning tv channel to # 60 for a picture-other wise it's channel 3 or 4. although you will get a better picture using yellow, red & white rca cords. I hope this has been of some help, prodzilla

I can't get channel 3 to show satellite channels. They only show up on Video 3. I need channel 3 to work for surround sound. I checked wiring diagram and it looks like everything is hooked up the way it...

The only way this will show on channel three is to have the receiver connected via coax to the TV and since it is displaying on Video 3 it either is not or it is connected in more than one manner and the Coax port on either the receiver ot TV may be bad.

Lets just ensure that tha coax from the back of the receiver is attached to the CH3-4 out port and then run to the back of the TV. If the TV has a dual coax input it will need to be connected to the analog or antenna port.

If the receiver does not have a coax port for TV1 you can get an rf modulator to facillitate this conection.

If all else fails try taking the red and white cables that are connected to the TV from the receiver and connecting it to the surround directly.

I hope this assists you.

Thanks for using Fix Ya and being a valued Dish Network customer.

I have recently switched to a Dual receiver from Dish network...I have a coax connection to my Sony but cannot find the way to change the input to find the signal from the coax cable. The TV will not take...

We would be happy to help get that fixed right away. Thefirst thing we want to ensure is that all connected equipment is on. Since we know you are using a coax cable to connect the receiver toTV1, check the receiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver hasa "TV CH 3/4 out":Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, if it is labeled "Home Distribution": TuneTV to channel 62 or 75. We also want to ensure that the TV and thereceiver are connected properly, please visit this link to for moreinformation: we have made sure everything is connected properly, unplug receiver for 10seconds then plug it back in, this will reset the receiver. If we are still notgetting a picture connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the sameTV, using same cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. If youget a picture with the other component give us a call at 1-800-333-DISH (3474)for some additional troubleshooting. If it doesn't work with the othercomponent then replace the cable that was used.

We hope these steps resolve the issue. We want to thank you for being a valuedDISH Network customer!

Trying to hook up your DV220SL8 DVD/CD Video Cassette Recorder. I have an antenna coming in coax but there are no places to plug any of the jacks on the tv.

There are two ways of solving this problem
1.It seems to me that you need an RF Modulator Box. What this does is convert the RCA cables (Yellow,White,Red cables) into coax. You buy the box then plug you antenna and RCA cables into the box. The box has a coax output that goes to your TV. You can then switch from VCR\DVD to antenna.

2. I dont know if your VCR/DVD has it but try hooking up your antenna to the VCR coax INPUT and then hook up your TV to the coax OUTPUT. Both Coax INPUT and Coax OUTPUT should be on the back of the VCR/DVD device. Your going to need an extra Coax wire for this.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reading!

Hooking up a dvd/vcr player

The easiest way to connect the unit is via coax. You can come out of your satellite receiver via the "Out to TV" on the back of the receiver to the "In from Ant" on your DVD/VCR combo. You can then connect another coax from the "Out to TV" on the DVD/VCR combo to the "Ant/Cable" input on the back of you TV. Make sure the satellite receiver and the vcr are both modulated to the same channel, normally channel 3.
