Robert Burns: This is a great video and it took a lot of searching online to find a fix
to this. Is there a close up picture or better yet, a video of inside the
circle of the component that the piece gets soldered to? I am doing this
job for a friend and I have no background on doing this kind of project and
he don't have the money to take it in. I have the back cover off
the TV, and the cable connector was broke away from where it belonged. The
connector has a end with a small piece of wire still on it. I seen from
another guys comment that he crimped it together. Is there a way to connect
a wire from the connectors end wire to where it would connect at in the
hole. I see a piece of wire that looks like it goes up and down right
inside the hole of the component where the connector gets soldered to. If
there is any kind of pic, videos, or info on how to fix this without having
to re solder the new wire to the side board? I get worried about trying to
solder the area where the wire will go on the board that I might heat up
something around that area and the problem will be worse off..
Bob Kenneth Marley Arellano: gracias buen video
Kevin H: Where do you get the replacement part?
Gary Kimrey: If you need to watch this video, you are doing something WRONG! Stop
*#&$ing with your cable box, exchange it for a new one, and don't be an
Morgan Kuehl: Thanks man. Just picked up a used TV with no coaxial connector. Gonna get
on that shortly.
efrain reyes: nice thankyou do you are the best
angierandomstuff: My son got one of his xbox connecters stuck in the back of the TV he pulled
the cord out and the metal part snapped off leaving it inside the back of
the TV were the input is at. we don't know how to get it out...any tips?
MrElectronicsWhizz: no this video is just for a tv tuner
MrElectronicsWhizz: Your welcome. I am glad to hear it helped you out.
Julio Cruz: I'm having trouble removing the shield from the tuner... my tuner is flat
and is not upright like in your installation video (Sanyo) - I feel like im
gonna break the damn thing... Oh and can I still use the same parts? I
don't really have the option to take my hdtv to a repair shop so can you
please give me some advice
Shawlmon Scott: You are a very smart man, good job.(kid talking)
Leah Wiley: I just broke the adapter to my 51 inch flat screen. Will this process still
work close to the same way? Or should I not risk it and take it to a repair
shop? For now am using HDMI adapter but it doesn't allow CC on it and being
deaf... HDMI doesn't help me.
MrElectronicsWhizz: There are many things that can cause this such as the center connector is
bent or a missing or broken surface mount component or a crack on the tuner
board or a crack on the main board where the tuner is mounted. You should
be able to obtain the tuner from the manufacturer.
loveboneification: Just the video I was looking for. Very well done. I'm confident I can
repair my TV now.
MrElectronicsWhizz: The only way to fix a flat tuner is to very carefully unsolder the whole
tuner from the board which is extremely difficult because of the circuit
board traces can break off very easy and yes the same connector can be used
mrsgarza23: thank you very much for the vid it helped me alot thank you very much for
taking the time to make the video!!!!!!!!!!
littledebbie187: I find your video very helpful and informative. It's funny, because I just
have that same problem today--only a few hours ago. Those tools that you
mentioned, you said you bought it at Radio Shack. Do you know any stores
that have those tools for a more affordable price? If so, please let me
know. All in all though, you are an inspiration to me, and I would be
blessed with this video. You're doing a good job. Cheers.
MrElectronicsWhizz: if your lucky you might be able to take the tv apart and remove the metal
piece that broke off inside and it might work and there is a chance the
entire circuit board may have to be replaced
Athena179: My TV's insides looked a bit different, but this video gave me an idea of
how to repair the broken connector. This was my first time soldering
electronics...and it worked! Thanks so much!
MrElectronicsWhizz: If its not too badly damaged you should be able to re-solder it back on or
obtain a new part from the manufacturer and as a last resort you could
bypass it by cutting one end off of a rca patch cord with a female end on
it and solder the wires on where the old one broke. Best of Luck.
goreillaface: i cant find where to but this female input for the antenna you used where
can i find one
Toney Seaton: i juss broke my cable coax buh i have a LCD sony tv how do i fix that?? can
you make a video of that or show me a video on how to??cuzz i bought the

people know what to expect.
Fusumada: this video is epic great explanation clear shot and good tips thanks man!!!
Jericho Sean: Plz help plz my mom is coming on tv the cable cord broke how can I fix it

Davol1990: Your video helped me fix a friend's Panasonic TV! It was exactly what I was
looking for to fix the coax connector onto the tuner board. I'm a computer
repairman and generally handy with D.I.Y. projects, and your video was just
what I needed to help show me how to solder the connector on. Thank you
Zachary Cameron: Thanks man, didn't have any solder equipment, but I made do crimping on a
piece of copper wire where my connection broke. Way to save me my superbowl!
godofhalo333: I have a qiuck question, you know the three red yellow and white plugins
for a tv how can i fiv one of those because i was trying to plug in my xbox
and the yellow plugin fell into my tv i was so angry. But please if you can
help me i would deeply love the assistance.
MrandMrsBergner: thanks for the video tip sorry can't tip don't have a job I attempted to
fix it and only get about 1/3 of the channels that I got before I'm using
an antenna for my TV & would really love to get the rest of the channels
please do you know if I can run an antenna cable through some kind of
converter to the audio video jacks if so where can I get such a converter?
If not would it hurt anything to use a digital converter on a TV that don't
need it? Thanks again for your video gave me confidence.
MrElectronicsWhizz: 14 Gauge stranded wire and I used about 3 strands
elcheapouno: thanx so much for this vid, just fixed a tv I bought!!!
GoneTomorrow: This was awesome. I was able to fix mine thanks to this video. I was afraid
that I would have to get another encoder and desolder the broken encoder.
soreeyehalll: Marvelous video. Thank you!
MrElectronicsWhizz: Yes I made a video LOL. I plan on making more and yes lots of people still
MrBreigle: I attempted to repair my nephews TV. I didnt' buy a new connector, but I
just soldered the old one back on as there was still a significant piece of
the center pin left on it. It works, but the picture is snowy now. Any idea
what may be causing this? I would just replace the entire tuner, but I
can't find the thing anywhere. The part # is dtvs205eh201a. Any ideas where
I can find it?
MrElectronicsWhizz: You Can find some good deals for tools on Ebay
MrElectronicsWhizz: @desertkid79 OMG use the power of google part number 215543
K Cole: Thank you you saved me a great deal of money I am disabled and both of my
tv's cable inputs broke. I had a friend help me and your video did the
trick. Again thank you for the most informative video I have seen. Step by
step it was really amazing that you shared your knowledge with us, there
really are good people in ths worls and you my friend are a great one.
littledebbie187: @atvrhtd I took care of the little problem we have discussed. My TV set is
actually an HDMI, so therefore, like you said, I do not need the connector.
All I needed are at least three RCA Cables. And it did the job well. I did
a little research on how to connect Cable and VCR to The HDMI TV. Thank you
for the advice, my friend.
mambo leckie: if i got a scart freeview box i could just use that instead couldnt i?
MrElectronicsWhizz: You Know I could say the same about all the blurry and over saturated color
videos you posted LOL.
rock962000: Thanks to you sir, I fried a $1,200.00 HDTV.. Lol jk, I fixed my mothers TV
thanks to you sir. Thumbs up x100! Lol
MrElectronicsWhizz: To Hold the connector in place when soldering.
atvrhtd: You only need this connector if yopu use an antenna. IF you have cable,
Uverse or DSS or cable service then you do not need this connector. Get a
DSS or cable box and a HDMI cable instead.
MrElectronicsWhizz: Hey I am glad to hear it helped. :)
ThorTV: Cool you made a video! I didn't know that was you. I get so many friends
requests and comments I don't check everyone. Who uses Coax anymore? People
should be using at least composite or component and HDMI if running HD. Who
am I kidding I got 2 TVs hooked up via coax myself.
ok250682: This video shows that you are a very patient man with very skillful nimble
hand. Much more difficult than sewing a dress...... :)
Gamer0wnage: @monksters1 Thats what happened to me,I tripped over the wire and it
completely ripped it out of the tv.Does anyone have any advide on how to
Violinistworrior: I have a Radio Shack Iron, very good.
monksters1: what if someone broke the connector of the tv (which is what happened to me)
