The Sega Genesis and 32x use a simplistic resonance bandpass filter around 3.58MHz for Chroma, which changes phase and far from proper BT.470 specification.
Some NTSC decoders can’t lock to that grossly out-of-spec terrible chroma signal and get hue shifts or no color at all.
Sony’s NTSC decoders in their TVs/PVM/BVM are more tolerable for this bad chroma signal, but other equipment may not be.

Please consider using HD Retrovision cables if you are in the US or the new console Component cables from retrogamingcables.co.uk if you are from Europe.
