My LCD display is now more yellow than any thing else. The colors are fine in the menu and pip but not with hdmi/component or rgb input. I simulated this problem by pulling the red yp/br connection out when using component. Any thoughts?

PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.
I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree. To change your PiP settings:
Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
Select PIP and press Enter.
Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again. Note: If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button. Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button. Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to. Note: You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
This actually common I worked in electronics for 13 years. Did they tell you that it has to be hooked up to an High Definition source. A digital cable or Sattelite reciever does not mean its HD also using Coaxle cableor composite(yellow,red,white) will not produce a good picture. You need HDMI or Component(RED,Blue,Green for video and red white for audio) to get a high def pic. Also not all station are broadcast in high def. One other thing is even if you have a High Def reciever you need to go into the menu of the reciever where it says display and and make sure its set for 1080i or maybe 1080p(most dont have this option yet) If you are using a normal DVD player and use the yellow red and white once again picture will be poor. Need to use Component or hdmi and again with component you need to set DVD to either 480p and if its upconvert to 1080p
You have to option in LCD Source In-Put.All LCD Have this In-Put Com posit-Yellow/Red/White (AV) In LCD Select AV Mode After That Connect Yellow /Red/White as per color pin given in your LCD. Component-Green/Blue/Red If you have Component in put in your LCD than select from source component mode for Red/Blue/Green.
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.
If the set is hooked up using Component cables (red, green, blue), then check to make sure the cables are hooked up correctly, and not defective (change them out). If the color problem remains, then the problem may be in the Optics block of the television (which is not unheard of in this unit).
If the menu of the TV displays blotchy discoloration, and the discoloring is the same for every input on the tv (stationary), then it is the Optics, and the optics need to be changed. It is not the easiest job in the world, and the block itself is quite expensive, although the unit my be under an extended warranty from Sony. Contact them directly to see if you can get any help (cost or service-wise). Hope this helps...
Are you using the component inputs from the DVD player (blue, green, red)? HDMI? If using the component cable, it sounds like one is in the wrong slot. If using HDMI, try looking at the setup in the DVD menu to make sure it is using the correct output. I had a samsung DVD player that kept trying to use the component output even though I told it to use the HDMI and my picture looked red. Let me know.
