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.

My son tripped over the cable cord and the cable/antenna input came off. Is it repairable and is it costly to get it fixed

It depends if the connector broke the tuner it is attached to. Most times the chassis of the set would need to go into the shop. I would generally charge $80.00-$120.00 if the tuner was still good - a new tuner would cost $60-$100 more if bad
The better solution is to use the video audio inputs (if on satellite or cable box) or use the video inputs by changing channels through the VCR (if on cable or antenna and a VCR is available)

Cable input connector broken off

Usually the connector or at least a new connector can be put back on. If there is minor damage to the board, a tech can repair it in most cases.

Broke the piece where the cable wire goes in...what's it called?

Unfortunately, that coax connector  is almost certainly crimped onto a cable inside.  You might want to pull off the back panel to see if that internal cable is screwed onto another jack on the chassis. If so, you can disconnect that end and substitute another cable, they come in several different lengths and are not critical. Any electronics store will have them.
If it isn't equipped with a connector inside, you will need to have someone unsolder the defective cable and install a new one.

The part is called and "F" connector. It can be purchased but it also muist be soldered in place. This is not a trivial task. The F connector is part of the tuner. For a set of this size, it may be easier to replace the tuner rather than fool around with a repair attempt. Depending upon how it was broken, the PC board inside the tuner may be broken as well requiring tuner replacement anyway.

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.
