Question about Televison & Video
Screen has gone blank. There is sound and remote works for channels, volume, etc. FAQs say "check you have not presses BLUE button and switched OFF power to screen." No change. Not sure why it went blank. It is my elderly father's tv. He says picture went after he accidentally dropped remote on floor. I have same tv and no problems. Tried my remote. Still no screen but buttons worked ok. Rang customer service and they said it seems to be screen. Out of warranty by 6 months.
Could be internal power supply failure.

Long story short:
Had the same problem with my Soyo.
Thought it was the power supply board problem that everyone else was reporting.
ordered one. Plugged it in. Did not work.
Inspected the Main/Logic board and found what looked like a black button that could be depressed. It is located to the right of main processor on the board. You can't really miss it.
With the TV plugged in, I pressed the suspect button. The TV made a buzzing/clicking noise for a few moments and the stuck blue illuminated power button faded away.
Curious by this, I pressed the power button and low and behold the TV comes to life!
Looks like I found a "reset" button which seems to have fixed my problem.
Thanks Soyo for not bothering to mention that such a button exists.
I hope the rest of you have the same good luck. In the event you are still in need of a power supply board, email me. I have a spare now it seems. ;)

My son put a penny in the SD card slot of my Pansonic flat screen tv. I finally got the penny out but now the volume and tv controls do not work. I can change the channels through my cable box but that is it. The volume does not work on my cable remote or the flatscreen. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?? Thanks, Josh
