My dog chewed off the end of a coaxial cable tv cord. will it still give me cable tv somehow?

there is copper wire hanging out. enough to stick into the cable tv input on my tv. but the channels dont come in. should the cord still work or do i need a new one that has the regular end a cable cord has?

    you can buy a coaxial end at a store, like target, k mart, etc. i had the same problem. it just slides over the wire and you use pliers to clamp it down. it should work. but after i did that, my dog chewed along the whole wire, so the reception wasnt as good, in that case you need to get a new cable. hope that helps.

    Take the big cord in the middle and put it in the middle of the input, and take all the loose wires and put them on the outer edge of the input.

    your dog will be fine..i'm sure it'll pass right through..it isnt something that'll hurt him..but your cord will possibly still work..you can attach a new plug on the end and try thatand possibly cut down the end he was chewing on a bit

    dont pay for a new one, call the cable company and tell them that you have a broken rg-6 connector and its causing a signal leak, they will send you a new jumper for free.

    Just replace the connector. And make sure the dog didn't eat the tip! If he did, get him to the vet.
