My edit suite monitor is suddenly acting strange. The monitor is a Sony PVM-1954Q broadcast monitor.
Yesterday I attempted to switch on underscan. But from that point forward, the monitor buttons on the front are acting like they cannot be used. (like they are locked or inhibited), and I can no longer get my signal to be seen.
I confirmed black in, and it is fine.

Doesn't sound good. If the logic board got a real ZAP of static (or any other kind of jolt) it MIGHT be "toasted".
To make sure its not any kind of incoming "wild" voltage or surges,
try connecting ONLY a stand-alone camcorder, (running on its own battery) playing a tape, directly to the monitor (disconnect any other gear and/or sync cables) and see if the monitor buttons still act oddly.
