I have a RCA F25649 and the male coaxial connection broke off the back of TV. How can I repair this?
I have taken the back off the TV and slid out the board to have better access to the antenna module. Any help or tips would be of great help. thank you in advance.

the simplest long term solution is to replace that tuner. Its the silver box there. De-solder it from the board and solder in a replacement. Get a rebuilt one from tiptoptuner.com

Alternatively, you may be able to get away with putting a different F connector on there. But they usually don't last if they ever get pulled on again.

By the way, I haven't seen an "F' connector yet that "fell off" the tuner. They all required a lot of help to "break" them off!
Tuner "F" connector is one of the most routine jobs of the day. (Presuming the Main or Tuner board is not damaged. Smile) (And you have the correct "Iron(s).")
First remove the tuner from the Main board. Then remove the metal covers from the top and bottom of the tuner. Remove the remnant of the old connector from tuner's board. Obtain replacement connector and then do as the referenced thread indicates. All up to here is standard heat from a variable iron, attaching connector to tuner frame will be with iron turned to highest setting. (Stand the tuner in a small vise with the connector pointed up).
