46S8030 Model Number, Very sorry for the delay Shaid.

Hi Norman,
No problem for the delay, it seems the TV firmware (internal software) has been corrupted for some reason like lightning storm in area or EEPROM chip has failed (hardware issue) located on main board, now the TV firmware doesn't boot up completely to give picture and menu options on screen so it has stuck in middle of booting process thus you get blue screen only.
Need to swap the main board of TV which will help to resolve the problem, required main board is available at ebay for 60 Pounds and local TV repairman will do this for you if you are not comfortable working on this TV yourself, please check following link to view the main board price info...

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue.
I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
