The Component Y, Pb, Pr / Y, Cb, Cr Input ports no longer show up as "Source" ports. When selecting the Source, these ports are not selectable and the video no long works to these ports.
The DVI port shows that it is available by toggling up and down with the remote, so I may try to switch to using that input. Thanks for any suggestions.

It sounds like you connected a regular yellow composite video cable to the green luma (Y) port of a component video connection, this will give you just a black and white image because the red (Pr/Cr) and blue (Pb/Cb) ports and cables carry the color information.
Depending on the type of cabling your using the input may vary. If you are Connected using a digital cable such as an HDMI or component (y/pb/pr) cable then you want to set the TV to the HDMI or component input by pressing input or source on your TV. If this is connected using coaxial cable tune the TV to channel 60, 62, 73, 75, 3 or 4
The most likely reason for this is that your connections between the DVD player are incorrect. This usually happens when a Composite cable is connected to one the Component input sockets on the back of the TV.
If you are are using a composite cable (red, white, yellow plugs), please make sure the yellow plug is not connected to a socket labelled Y, Pb/Cb, or Pr/Cr on the back of the TV or the DVD/VCR. The yellow plug needs to be connected to a VIDEO OUT socket on the back of the DVD/VCR and a VIDEO IN socket on the back of the TV.
Do not use sockets labelled Y, Pb/Cb, or Pr/Cr on either of them.
If you are unable to determine which sockets to use, please let me know the brand and model number of your VCR/DVD and confirm the model number of your TV is GV42L. I will then be able to draw you a diagram showing the correct connections to use.
Hi, Component input connectors use the colour convention
Green = Y (luminance signal)
Red = Pr or Cr (Red colour difference signal)
Blue = Pb or Cb (Blue colour diffrence signal)
Composite input connectors use the colour convention
Yellow = CVBS (composite video, blanking, sync)
Red = Audio Right
White = Audio Left
for compatibility both units will need to have matching colours. note the component inputs do not have audio and as such will also have a set of red & white connectors for use with the audio signals too ( rule of thumb Component = 5 connectors, composite=3 connectors)
What a crock of **** this is guys! This FIX is surly a sad work around for the poor! Replace the mother board and solve your problem the correct way. No need to butcher up this TV. Better still, buy a name brand TV and a service contract which will save you money in the long run.
