If you know for certain that the HDMI ports are broken, then you might have to get a RCA-HDMI adapter.
example-https://www.amazon.com/eBerry-Composite-Transmitter-CONVERSION-Transmission/dp/B01F77KXC0/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1500950795&sr=8-5&keywords=av+to+hdmi

I'm not sure how well these work, but unless your TV has other ports, this may be your only option

UPDATE: do not get that cable, upon further research, I realized that HDMI is a digital signal while RCA is analog, so it will not work.
Here is what would most likely work https://www.amazon.com/GANA-Composite-Converter-Adapter-Supporting/dp/B01L8GG6PW/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1500951055&sr=1-3&keywords=rca+to+hdmi
