Philips model 27MS5402/17, chassis A02U AA - horizontal adjustments
Just replaced the tuner in this set due to a broken cable connector, and all is well with one main exception. The horizontal size is a bit too large and set too far to the left (facing the set). The problem causes vertical distortion waves in the first few inches from the left side. Is there a way to correct the problem without specialized equipment?
Also noticed a quirk that I think may be due to its being inside a mobile home (metal). When the set is facing south, a purple blob (looks like the tube needs degaussing) resides in the lower right corner of the screen. As the set is tilted forward, the discoloration moves up the right side to the top right. Go figure.
Any help on the horizontal adjustment will be appreciated.

With most tv's I've serviced, the cable connector is connected directly to the tuner module. The tuner module may be damaged beyond repair, depending upon how much physical force was applied to the cable connector. I would take it to a reputable repair shop and let them provide you a honest estimate of repair. They may be able to resolder the cable connector to the tuner module.
What you are calling the "antenna module" is actually the tuner. The connector that pulled out is called the F connector. The F connector can be soldered back onto the tuner but this is a very delicate procedure and is especially difficult if any of the coils in the area of the F connector have been bent, altered or moved. The tuner itself is not too expensive and is much easier to replace than trying to replace the F connector, especially if you have never done one before. If you use this set with a cable box then simply connect AV cables from the cable box to the TV set the TV to VIDEO.
Was the block a cube about 1" ? You should be able to salvage one from an old tv. This block is used to isolate the antenna/cable from the "hot" chassis inside your tv. If you should find a used block ,make sure it does this. If you get one that gives you a direct connection to the chassis, your antenna/cable connector would give you a shock and probably burn out something in your tv when the cable is connected.
Some of the Sanyo's have this connector made on to the tuner. If this is the case you'd have to either put a new coax connector in the tuner OR replace the tuner.
