RF Connector


My girlfriend recently had some little kids at her house and they some how managed to pull the entire RF/cable connector out of her TV. I was wondering if there is a way to replace this. Thanks.

If the housing on the tv is ok and only the connector is pulled out, it could be reinstalled. remount it in the tv and connect the wiring to it. If the surface is damaged, it will require an appropriate repair with glue or whatever. If the connector is damaged, it can be replaced at a source of supply, such as: Radio Shack or lowes.

Hope this helps.

If the socket is on the end of a length of co-ax cable running from the tuner it may be more than just a socket and have some isolating components incorporated into its construction. If this is the case, then replacing the entire assembly will probably be necessary.

More often though, the socket is soldered directly into the body of the tuner unit. When it gets ripped out it usually either pulls out or snaps the wire soldered into the tuner's printed panel.

Things are a bit miniature in the tuner unit but they can often be repaired. A new tuner could be necessary though.

take the back off the tv, the entire panel and any other screws present at the back of the set. take care not to hit neck of the pic tube.
observe any obvius faults from the rf connector to tuner. if the rf connection to the tuner is pullled out reconnect it. do you just get snow as a signal? that would be a sign that the rf/cable is not connected.
tell us what you see, then maybe we could pinpoint the problem better.
good luck , snuffs

High Voltage

There are high voltages present in televisions, be careful what you touch.
