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.
Its for component video input. The cable has three connections, one red, one green and one blue. This is the highest quality connection for video you can get without HDMI. The audio will be run on a different cable
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.
Make sure that the proper input is selected on the TV. Also, check to be sure that the correct output is activated on the DVD. I'm not familiar with the Technika brand so verify the output selection in the owner's manual.
If those selections are correct, try connecting to the standard AV input using the Red/White/Yel cable connection.
