If you have attempted to move your TV and have broken the coaxial/antenna connection or suddenly have a piece of metal lying in your hand, that cable connector thing, Midwest TV Parts can help! Want your TV back up and running quickly? No problem! This type of repair can typically be completed same or next business day. Want to proceed with the repair? It’s simple! The repair is a flat rate of $65 plus a $10 shipping return shipping charge. If you have lost the broken coaxial connector there will be an additional $12 charge for the piece. Keep in mind, in the rare event that the main circuit board was damaged when the coax connector broke, the main circuit board will need to be replaced. This rarely ever happens but it must be mentioned because it is a possibility. The TV can still be repaired but again the main board must be replaced.
This repair is a fraction of the cost of a new TV; however, it does require some advanced soldering techniques and should be done by a qualified electrical bench technician. That’s why we offer you the convenience of shipping your part to us for repair. If you decide to ship us your part for repair, you will need to follow these steps:
Step 1. Unplug the power cable and all audio video cables from the rear of TV and carefully place the TV face down on a clean flat surface ensuring that you don’t damage the screen. Remove all screws from the rear panel. Be sure to look at the stand as well for hidden screws. The cover should remove easily however some brands have plastic clips around the edge of the TV, you don’t have to do anything special to get the back off just pull a little harder. If you are still having trouble it is likely because you have missed a screw somewhere. Read carefully! Once the back cover is loose, pull it up slowly just enough to look inside. Check for wires running from any of the circuit boards to the back cover of the TV. You do not want to damage a connection point on any of the circuit boards. If you do this will simply lead to more problems repairing or replacing a damaged circuit board.
Step 2. Locate the main board. (Pictured right) Remove all screws from the board. Disconnect all connection points. Depending on your model, some can be tricky, so be careful. Lift the main board away from the TV slowly ensuring no cables are still connected.
Step 3. Very important! Package the circuit board in 3 layers of bubble wrap and place it in a sturdy box. If you still have the broken coax end place it in a small ziplock back and include it in the package. Ship your part to Midwest TV Parts, Attn: TV Repair 8172 Zionsville Road Indianapolis, IN 46254.
