Hello , I`m Jack and perhaps I can help you with this but first I must say that this jack that fell off will definitely cause a hum if that cord is still plugged in at the amp

Pull it out until you can get the table's jack repaired

There are some USB audio to analog audio converter that perhaps could be used here

You could also use a setup like this ;

To be used with a gender changer like this ;

Or that cable alone connected in your tv tables analog out to replace the one you have if defective
