Replace the main board. That board controls all the symptoms you're having. You can get the Vizo Main Board 3642-0182-0150 thats the board for your model from www.tvcircuitboards.com it has a 6 month warranty

SOURCE: Verizon remote won't work

I am a Verizon tech and the remotes we use work for Vizio sets just fine. If for some reason the remote wont work and he tried 3 different ones then it has to be your set. I set FIOS up all day and have no trouble with those TVs

SOURCE: vizio remote control not working

Hi, I had the same problem. My vizio remote for my 42 inch 2 month old vizio also seemed to stop working. Here's what I did: My vizio remote (like most remote's nowadays) was designed for multiple components (tv, dvd, vcr, etc). All you need to do to make the remote work again is set it back to tv. Now, the confusing thing about vizio remotes is that they actually have TWO places where you can switch the remote to the appliance you want to control. One is on top of the remote, the other is on the BOTTOM. Switch it back to TV using the BOTTOM. My remote had stopped working because I had inadvently switched it to another component on the BOTTOM component switch.

Vizio M261VP 26'' LCD TV no picture, logo does not light up


If the Vizio logo(power indicator) isn't coming on when the set is plugged in, most likely you have a issue with the power supply. Your standby power supply isn't working, and without it, you will have a dead set.

Audio isn't working


ya know I hate to say it but I've done this before. check the mute button on your remote. I've accidently hit mine before and it took me several days to realize it. lol. if it's not that. check the volume of the set itself, then check the volume with the remote....I know these are weird things to check, but they do & have happened, to me. lol. good luck & God bless.

My remote won't set to the tv I tried pressing the set button and it didn't work then I replaced the batteries to see if that would work but it didn't and now I don't know what to do please...


Hello
You might have a cellphone with camera option. Set the cellphone co cemera mode, and place the remote control at about 1 feet away from its camera lens, and press each button on your remote control. Remote control emits infrared rys as we press each button, but can't be detected by human eye. Electronic cameras can detect it. If there is any infrared ray emission from your remote control you will see its image on the camera screen for each button press to your remote control. If there is image and still the Tv doesn't respond to it, The TVs' infrared snsor inside has damaged and should be replaced. If there isn't any image; check the battery contacts of the remote battery compartment first. Clean these contacts by using a piece of corborandum paper or with the tip of a razor blade. Improper battery contacts, due to rust and dust to these contacts will prevent the battery supply voltage to enter into the remote contro.
Still it doesn't work at all, the remote control is damged and should be replaced. Contact the nearest Vizio Authorised Service Cente fro original remote control. OK.

I want to program my sony RMT-B107A remote to controll my Vizio tv and I can't find the codes, HELP!


I know that it has been a while since this question was originally asked, but I figured that I would share what worked for me.

Here is what worked for me: (RMT-B107A remote and Vizio TV)

1. With the TV on, Press and hold TV I/O button
2. Press 04 on the number keypad.
3. Press the TV I/O button and the TV should turn off

This method also allows me to control the volume on my Vizio. The TV input button did not work.

My tv is an Emerson 20" HDTV. Last week the closed caption just popped on and we can't get it off. My cable company, Comcast, said my box is not equiped to support closed caption so it is the tv....


I think Comcast doesn't know much about their equipment; their box has no influence on CC since it is embedded in the program material and is passed through their receiver to your set. There are two possibilities; the remote is no longer sending the pulse train to control CC or the set's receiver isn't responding to that command.
You can do a rough check on your remote if you own any kind of digital camera; still or video. Turn on the camera so that you have a display picture of the room you are in. Point the remote toward the camera's lens and push (and hold) a button on the remote that you know is working, such as the "Power" button while looking at the LCD display of the camera. You should be able to easily see the blinking of the InfraRed LED(s) which most all digital cameras can 'see.' Once you know what to look for, try the button that should control the Closed Caption function. If you don't see anything on your camera LCD display, that button (or the circuit it controls) isn't sending out the code train required to control that function. If that is the case, you may be able to buy an original ('universal' remotes really aren't) replacement remote from:
Remotes.com
Conversely, if you DO see the remote blinking, then the circuit in the TV set that responds to the CC (and others) command has partly failed and that is more costly to repair.
