I have a soyo tv and the codes on the setup sheet do not work


Try a code search method. If the remote have codes for your TV, you will won. It is a time taking procedure. Check it. Here the procedure is.
Code Search
If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.

IDENTIFYING CODES FOUND USING THE SEARCH PROCEDURE
  1. Press and hold the SETUP until the LED indicator lights steadily. Release Setup button.
  2. Press the mode button that matches the equipment you want to identify. The LED blinks once.
  3. Press and release SETUP. The LED blinks once.
  4. To find the first digit, press each number button from 0 to 9 until the LED blinks. The number you pressed is the first digit of the code.
  5. Press each number button from 0 to 9 again as above to find the second digit.
  6. Press each number button from 0 to 9 again as above to find the third digit.
  7. Press each number button in turn to find the fourth digit. When the fourth digit has been found, the LED goes out

My Kenmore 80 series dryer won't stay on unless I


Aha!
You are going to make me guess!
I am guessing you have to hold the start button down.
So.
Try a new start button first.
If that does not fix it, replace the timer/control unit.
God bless your efforts.

Dryer won't stay on when button is pushed the button has to be held down for the dryer to run


A centrifugal switch has failed within the dryer. The centrifugal switch maintains electrical flow to the motor after the start button has been released (this is a safety measure) When you press the start button you put power directly to the motor; once started the centrifugal switch then puts power to the motor until the time then shuts it down.
I hope this may have helped you,
