I have a Spectre U550 TV and the coax connector broke while.

Customer Question
I have a Spectre...

I have a Spectre U550 TV and the coax connector broke while. I found the coax is attached to a tuner module with coax on end and vga on the other. Would you know where I could find a replacement tuner module for this TVE?

Technician's Assistant: What's the model number of your TV? How old is it?

Its a Sceptre U550CV-U 55" and is less than a year old

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Every else works, I just cannot plug into the coax connector

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

When I moved the cable box, it put pressure on the coax connection and it snapped off.

Hi

Let me type this down

Note that myself I do not send those $26 phone offers that you will receive , they are automated by the website and I`m not available for it at this time but another expert might be if you`d rather do this on the phone .
Otherwise you can just ignore them if you don`t want it , i have no control over those.

That's fine. I can ignore them.

That tuner module does not come separate , sorry but you won`t find it unless you replace the whole main board

What i would suggest here is to connect an external tuner like what you can see at the link below

That unit even records and has USB input for media player

Here it is ; https://www.amazon.com/ViewTV-AT-300-Converter-Recording-Composite/dp/B01MF9X5V9/ref=pd_sim_504_7?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01MF9X5V9&pd_rd_r=MYN8T7VSW7M5MNCHMT5B&pd_rd_w=zxu4o&pd_rd_wg=d3dsX&psc=1&refRID=MYN8T7VSW7M5MNCHMT5B

This will go between your antenna and tv`s HDMI input for a HD picture
