The colors on this unit are very washed out and the screen is tinted very yellow.

It's not the monitor or cable, I tried a 256 and it looks fine on the monitor. Any suggestions on where to start looking to fix?

It’s probably an issue with the video circuitry on the Namco motherboard. Just in case, have you checked if the PlayStation AV cable is plugged in all the way on both the Namco pcb and the PlayStation 2 motherboard?

Have you tried adjusting colors on the unit itself from the service menu? Not sure if those settings save between games, but if it's running just one game and you bought it used, that can be a thing.

I tried 2 different games and 2 different AV cables, same results.

Is there any major documentation on the Namco daughter board to diagnose anything? I didn't see any burnt traces or bad parts...

Did you check color edit under display test in the service menu? Maybe it saves settings between games, I don't know. Too much red and green will result in yellow.
