Hello again! I'll start with the problem I'm having. Earlier today, I contacted Live Support about a problem I was having with my Vive's screen not turning on. During the chat, the helper suggested plugging the HDMI and USB from the computer into the headset itself. Stupidly, I somehow unplugged the power to the headset from the linkbox in the process, meaning I saw no change. Only realising after the chat ended, during which I had started the repair process due to the helper thinking it was a problem with the HMD, I tried the solution again with the power cable plugged in. As expected, the fix worked. I'd just like to know how the repair process can be cancelled after it has been started, now that I know that the headset is working. The repair is to fix the actual headset, which I now know is in working order. I'd like to say thanks to the people at Live Support who helped me troubleshoot the problem, especially so since I messed up the process completely. Hopefully that's the only issue I'm going to have with the Vive.

After installing my Vive yesterday, I have quite a few problems getting it to work correctly. After using the Vive for around an hour, problems started to occour. Firstly, the display began to blink on and off; a problem that soon stopped entirely. My next issue was error 208, which was fixed by a complete re-install of the Vive software. Now the issue lies in the fact that the screen doesn't seem to turn on. SteamVR reports that the device is running correctly and that the game is running correctly, but when I put on the headset, the screen remains black. Viewing a mirror of the screen shows that it is tracking correctly and that the controllers are working. I get no error message that would show the problem, and any fixes shown online haven't worked.
