I was being curious. I put a cable into the service port in back of the tv. the cord was not plugged in to anything. As soon as i stuck it inot the vizio the set turned off and won't turn on again. I can't get the logo on the front to illuminate. I'm waiting a call back from tech support but it sounds like i'll be waiting for a while. Any suggestions?
I had the exact same problem..Customer dis-service won't help...Was told by Level II consumer the motherboard could be replaced for around $200 for part + $100 labor? Will never buy a lame product that self destructs by placing a cable in the wrong port...

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Does the TV have a video out port ? What exactly did you plug into on the back of the TV and what sort of cable did you use ? Would have thought a DVD HDD recorder device would more likely have a video out port. ??? get torch and read what you plugged into on the back of the tv ?
What make and model camera? Not all USB ports put out enough current to charge a battery. If you're connecting through a hub, try bypassing it and connecting directly. If you have another USB port, try that.
Connect the coaxial "Cable In"
cable to the "Cable In" port on the back of your TV cable receiver
box. Make sure your receiver box is not plugged in yet. 2 Take the TV audio/visual
cable, and connect the red, blue and green ends to the corresponding
color "Cable Out" ports on the back of your cable receiver.3 Take the other ends and plug them in to the red, blue and green ports under "V1" on the back of your TV.4 Take the audio cord with the red
and white ends, and connect them to the corresponding color ports of
"Audio Out" on the back of your cable receiver; then, connect the other
ends to the corresponding color "Audio In" ports on the back of your TV.5 Turn on the power of your TV
cable receiver box first. Allow it to run through the boot sequence.
When you see the time appear on the front of the cable box, you may turn
on the television and check your signal.
You will need 1 HDMI cable to link between your DVD player and the Denon,plug the HDMI cord into the HDMI port on the back of your DVD player and the the other end into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled DVD,then you will need another HDMI cord to go between the Denon and your LCD TV,plug one end of the HDMI cord into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled HDMI monitor out and the other end into one of the HDMI ports on the back of your TV, it doesn't matter which one you use, just remember that you will have to change the input on the tv to that specific HDMI port when you play back a DVD and you will also have to change the Denon to DVD as your source to send the audio through the Denon to your surround sound speakers.( The Denon owners manual will help!!)
The Wii will work on the TV. Just try plugging into the ports labeled AV1 or AV2. The red, yellow, and white holes should line in a row with AV1 and AV2.
After you have them plugged in, press the INPUT button on the TV or the remote to get to the AV1 or AV2. It should work after that. :)
