Re: Menu (SCREEN) #4 Adjusting projection is gone

You have a convergence problem and this can only be serviced by a tech with the know how to service the rca projections sets as there are many alignments in this set and some are manual driven but mosrt are on screen driven. You need the know how to get into the service mode. Sorry my friend but my recomendations would be to send this set out for service.

What makes the picture projection appear in seperated colours ?

Usually it is a convergence chip but that depends on brand and model number---some of the sets do not use them.

Look first in the menu to see if customer adjustment of convergence is there---for example if a RCA 2002-2006 and no convergence adjustment shows it is gone for a reason.

Can see image but the screen is all red

Generally Tv screens use three different colours to make the picture, and if one or two of these colours don't show you will see the picture but in specially one colour (like looking through a red filter in your case).
If you are using an input into the TV (DVR or Games console etc) then I would firstly move the cable around in the back of the TV and the console to see if anything changes or flickers in and out of being correct. If this does happen I would recommend buying a new cable to fulfil the purpose.
If this does not happen and you are still seeing red then there may be an issue with the connection inside the back of your TV, this shouldn't be a very expensive issue to fix as you are still getting a picture but I would recommend getting a specialist to check it out if you are not confident in fixing this manually.
Thirdly and most unlikely is the settings inside the TV have changed, some TV's like yours will allow you to change colour settings on the screen. I would go into the menu and find the section that allows you to change the colours and have a check to see if any of the settings seem off.

Call a good TV Tech and have him replace the convergence amp IC's and do a complete alignment. This a $325 job at the most.
Check with your local BBB before you decide on a TV Tech.

Ghost like shadows

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.
