Are you seeing a power light and no video or no power light at all? If no power light try a different outlet in another room and see if you get a light. If not, the power supply for the box may have fried. You need to contact support in that case and get them to send you a new box and power supply. If you get a power light, make sure the coax cable connections are ok, and the HDMI connections to the TV are good. Even if the box can't connect to programming, you should still see the screensaver on your TV if the box is ok and the HDMI cable is ok.

Sounds like a bad box or power supply. Get in touch with support for a replacement.

Here is the preferred list of ways to contact Verizon:

1. @VerizonSupport via Twitter (this is the same team that handles vzdirect on dslreports.com)

2. Fios Facebook page

3. Chat

4. Community

5. dslreports.com or YouTube

6. 800 number should always be the last resort

The @VerizonSupport is the very best way to get immediate assistance and they handle it all (tech support, billing, customer complaints, etc.)
