h Davis: Thank you sir! I fixed my flat screen like this!
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 idiot.
Bob Kenneth Marley Arellano: gracias buen video
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
Kevin H: Where do you get the replacement part?
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..
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.
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?
Shawlmon Scott: You are a very smart man, good job.(kid talking)

Violinistworrior: I have a Radio Shack Iron, very good.
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.
Jericho Sean: Plz help plz my mom is coming on tv the cable cord broke how can I fix it plz make a video I'm gonna suscribe
MrElectronicsWhizz: Sorry to tell you this but it sounds like they sold you a knock off because the real ones has a teflon center and wont melt. The knock offs melt and you cant screw the wire on. I would call them back and ask them if they got the real thing if not try acme-sales and ask for the one that dont melt. Best of luck
William Kruidenier: Great video -- I ordered the new connector from your recommended source, everything went smoothly EXCEPT -- I can't screw the cable onto the new connector! Did I overheat the connector and melt the insides? There is a hole in the plastic (inside of the connector) for the cable wire to fit into but I've worn my fingers raw trying to screw the cable onto it. Any ideas?
