Broken HDMI connector

Bought a used MH with only 8400 miles. Discovering little things that need to be fixed. Looking for a remedy to fix a broken HDMI connector for the main interior TV. HDMI cable goes up and through the roof and over and down to the cabinet that contains all the entertainments stuff. Discovered that the HDMI cable is not easily repaired. Probably cannot replace the entire span of cable. Any suggestions?

It will really depend on where your tv is in relation to the entertainment center cabinet. I suspect you have already considered the obvious options of running a new cable up and along the headliner/ crown molding, or through adjacent cabinets, or along the floor where it can be hidden. My guess is that there is no easy way to run a replacement cable without it being seen. If you can provide more details regarding the positioning of the tv and cabinet I would be glad to brainstorm with you.

There are a couple of articles and a U tube video on how to repair them. It does not look easy. Both articles require taking another cable and cutting the ends off of that and splicing. Just do a Google search. There are other articles that talk about soldering a new end on. I might try to do that but at one time I was NASA certified to solder. If you have good soldering skills you could do it that way.

Either way good luck in your repair.
