I have a Marantz DV4001 and was using it with a Hantarex Plasma TV on HDMI and it was fine getting both picture and sound through the HDMI.
Then bought a Samsung LCD LA40 a 1080p LCD Display. With the above DVD player I do not get sound and the screen goes Pink in color and the picture is solarized. When I connected the Toshiba HD DVD Player it works fine and I get sound and good picture using the same HDMI Cable. Please advise.
It sounds like the HDMI port on the back of your Marantz is damaged. if
you know for sure that the HDMI port works on another tv still you
might just use component connection because the visible difference
between component and HDMI is not very recognizable.

I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....
I have this same machine, you did'nt mention what input you are using (composite, S-Video, component or HDMI) or what type of display you have (CRT, LCD, Plasma etc.).
If your T.V. has a HDMI input I recommend using that, if not and it's of fairly recent vintage use the component inputs (not to be confused with composite video inputs, or yellow RCA-type input).or at the very least use the S-Video input.
In the setup menu (on screen) try setting the "TV Screen" option to the 480p setting and if you are using the HDMI input try setting that to the highest resolution your T.V. has or set it to "Auto"
Finally in the on screen video menu select the "Video" setting and set the "Still Mode" option to automatic, and the "Output Level" to lighter or darker whatever your preference is.
Remember...Always use HDMI or component video inputs on your television (if it has those inputs)!
Hope this helps!
Our Samsung DVD/VCr all in one combo did a similar thing.
I used the HDMI cable for the DVD into the TV input labeled HDMI/DVD. That worked okay.
But the VCR part didn't work. At one point I got sound but no picture. Using the RCA cables in the back on another input "Component 1"
I was trying to squeeze the best picture out of the player using the S-VHS cable.
I thought it did picture only, but the Plasma seems to be more picky about input sources.
I got everything to work keeping the DVD as a separate HDMI to Plasma TV feed. The VCR was 3 RCA's Yellow (picture) red and white for stereo sound.
I then reset (toggled through the inputs to "reset" the TV.
It finally worked but I was two days mulling it over.
See if this works for you. My TV was a Panasonic Plasma, but shouldn't matter. Skip the S-VHS line and connect the inoputs with the TV off. You MAy need to go into the input of set up menu on the TV (ours had a wrench as an icon) and set the Component 1 or 2 to "VCR".
anytime your talking about a switch your talking about a temporary connection. The issue with using a switch is that for HDMI you want best quality and you will not get that using a temporary connection. The unit may be recognizing a weaker signal and turning the port off. However since the output on that particular unit is 1080i you should be fine using composite, just get a nicer monster set.
It seems the DV-S5950 has an incompatability with HDMI through Samsung TV's.
I work for an electronics store in Australia, and had same problem when running this DVD player on my Samsung KA40A650.
I tried it on my brothers LA40M51 and the same thing happened. Tried it at work on the A650 display model and same thing again. Then I tried it on the LG LCD that was next to it, and no problems. Also tried the DV-S5950 display model at work and it did the same thing.
It's not a general Yamaha issue, as we bought a new (higher model) Yamaha DVD player and it worked perfectly fine. I also tested the cables, and it wasn't them either.
It seems that that specific model of DVD player from yamaha just doesn't like the HDMI inputs on Samsung TVs...
