I have a 52 in RCA projection screen tv, but I do not know how to use the pip/swap buttons. I lost the user manual in my move. Or do you know where I can download a user manual for my RCA tv?

PIP means the set uses either two tuners or a dual tuner--could be a issue with the tuner. If it has a swap feature in the PIP use it to see if color when tuner is switched from main to PIP tuner.
A possible way around the issue is to look to see if rear audio/video inputs have color---you could route signal from a box etc to one of those and BYPASS the problem if rear inputs do not have this problem(not likely they will).
If it has the feature buttons on the remote for it, swap, position etc.
Some older sets have to have signal routed to one of the rear video inputs for a source for the PIP. Newer sets have two tuners--one for main and one for PIP---if pulled up the swap will switch one picture for the other--some allow both on the screen at same time side by side.
To find your user's manual just in case you've lost it. You can visit http://tv.rca.com/en-us/productdownloads.html and select your tv's size and model number. In case you don't know the tv's size I'll give an example. On the back of the tv you can find the model number. Example mine is R52WH74, that means that my projection screen is a 52 inch. Write back if this isn't what you're asking for.
this unit has two tuner modules. one is the main tuner and the other is the slave or the pip tuner. it would apear from your description that the main tuner has failed. it is possible that this can be replaced.
i am not familiar with this model, but on most sets you will have a button on the remote to activate pip, when active you should be able to adjust channels on the small display with the remote and cycle through inputs. depending on the tv you will either have 2 inputs for your cable/sat/tv feed, or will have 1 with a dual tuner. check the connections in the back for a second cable input, or hook up a dvd/vcr/game console/etc to test the pip. start dvd or tape playing, press pip button to display the mini-screen, then use the tv/vcr or input button to cycle through the modes and see if one pops up. most tvs that have pip will also have a swap button on the remote, it may be labeled with text, or it may just look like one screen overlaying another, press that one to swap between displays.
Watching two separate tv channels at the same
time requires two tv channel sources,i.e. a split
of some kind. For instance,the cable coming in thru the wall is split-half to tv or vcr/dvd combo
and then to tv,the other half to cable box,then out to tv.If what I described fails,then you may have an actual tv failure.PIP video is generally a separate circuit from standard video.An expert tech w/service literature should be able to help.
