I cannot adjust the red verticle convergence on my Philips55PP9352.
One day the TV was working fine the next I have shadow/ghost on the TV. After reading on line, I get the idea I have a convergence problem. I can go to the adjustment screen, but have no luck with the red verticle . The horizontal red adjusts and the blues do not need adjustment. Any ideas and if so, where do I get the parts and what am I looking for on the cicuit board to change? I have read about the "IC's" but what are they and what do they look like? Thanks,Dave.

Do you have any speakers or magnets next to the tv? If so, that is not good. It may be a convergance issue. Check to see if you have any adjustments on the back of your tv to adjust picture. If not, if may be a faulty capacitor that needs to be replaced
It seems your TV Samsung HCM4215W has problem in convergence board and need to be replaced. You can get that board from Parts Store on $76 If you have bit electronics knowledge and know how about tv repair, you can replace it by yourself or get help of local tv tech person.
50V500 ONLY GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image. CONDITION: A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture.Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray.Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture. CORRECTION:
To correct the problem, please do as follows:
Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.
BEFORE CONTINUING: CONFIRM THAT THE R, G and B DRIVE ARE SET AT 40.
Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.
Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once.The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3.You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).
If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
