My kids put about $1.00 in pennies through the slots in the side of it and today it blew up, I haven't took it apart to see the damage but is there any chance it can be fixed? Or should I just get a new TV, I really liked this TV.

You would need to open up your computer, remove the disk drive and then manually remove it. If your not comfortable with taking apart your PC then take it to a computer repair shop should take less than an hour so wouldn't cost a fortune.
It probably has it's own fuse. some times kids put things in the lighter sockets or stuff just falls in there. Pennies are real popular for causing that. Either that or a higher amp device was plugged in the socket and blew the fuse.
I had similar issues with my audio being mute intermittenly. I ended up being a penny in the CD player slot. (I think the previous owners kid put a penny thru the CD player slot) It also shorted out my DVD system, the DVD player would not come on. The dealership where I bought it seen me to GV Electronics to have my DVD player replaced, and they removed my CD Player and heard change banging around in the Player. After dis assembling it, they found the penny. Everytime I hit a bump or go over railroad tracks, the audio would mute.
there is a penny in your CD player slot. I had the same issues. Evertime I went over railroad tracks or severe pot holes my audio would go mute. The penny is moving around inside, on the CD player's electronic board and sorting out by letting multiple circuits make contact, so the penny was removed and everything is good. It killed my DVD System, I had to have it replaced on the dealership. I guess the previous owners kid put the penny in, mimmicking like a CD. I have had my Quest 3 weeks, probably one of the reasons they traded it in........
Coins are metal, and so this piece of metal could have come into contact with the circuit at any point, causing a short circuit. General this would have blown the fuse inside the unit. So start looking for a fuse. On the PC board it could be marked with a letter "F".
