    This Pioneer DV-05 dvd player has good audio but a very dark picture. Checking
    signal out of the S-Video plug shows good luminance but no chroma. If you use
    the composite video out plug, the picture is barely visible. There were some
    intermittent connections to the video plugs but resoldering those didn't help.
    I don't suppose there is some menu setting that would disable the color is
    there? Unless somebody knows of a specific fix for this fault, it's probably
    not worth troubleshooting.

    Thanks for your reply.

    The picture is fairly watchable through the S-Video output. Through the
    composite video output, the picture is very dark. I don't know whether the
    problems are related or if something else is affecting the composite video out.
  4. Check to see if there is a slide switch in the back that switches between
    s-video and component (Y-Pb-Pr). If there is a switch, make sure it is set for
    s-video and not component. - Reinhart
