    I've officially had enough of this broken usb port. I have a bit of experience with soldering so I'd like to try to replace or repair it.
    Is there a guide someone can point me to?

    None of my computers see the device, and when it's plugged in you have to pull the wire up in order for it to charge. I hate the fact I had to tape it on the wall and have my vtab somewhat hanging up in the air in order to charge it.

    Yes, there is a thread here someplace in the Vizio section about taking it apart and internal photos.

    Alright thanks. I'm going to call the vizio warranty center to see if I'm still covered. Someone mentioned that the extended warranty is optional if you still have the one year one in place. Should this be the case, I'm going to buy it.

    I'll report back on my experience with them.
