I just updated my "older" system by replacing the "S" video connections with new "component" connections, going from my Pioneer DVL-919 to the Marantz SR-18 and out to a 51" Samsung Plasma TV. Sound, clarity, etc. is all good but NO COLOR, just B&W! Can anyone advise what the problem may be? I am not an expert by any means so all help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Of course, that's only MY opinion, I could be wrong!

Have you changed it from RGB to YCrBr? It might be the other way... But...Component can carry both...but your display doesn't necessarily understand both...

It's easy to get those RCA cables plugged into the wrong spots. To start, make sure you've got the 3 video component cables (green, blue and red) going into the matching jacks, and nothing into the yellow composite jack. Then make sure you've selected the correct input - component - on your TV. I know that seems basic, but if that's all correct, let me know, and I'll see if I can't help further.

Sorry, I didn't see your reply before I posted mine. Sounds like we're both thinking the same thing.

Hello all! Thanks for your replies. I did something I should have done 'initially' - I located the instruction manual for the DVL-919 and after "searching" I found out how to access the confusing "menu" to switch the output from "S" video to "component!" For sure, given current systems, this is not exactly a user friendly device and the instructions . . . well, you know! Anyway, I have color now. . . hooray! Now all I have to do is convert my Beta & VHS tapes to DVD and I'll be all set! :P
Of course, that's only MY opinion, I could be wrong!
