New TVs and older ones, even recent model changes usually have different codes. Read the new remote closely. there is a section about finding the code manually. It is a pain, but works.

You need to isolate the problem.
1) Unplug the set for a few seconds then plug it in.
2) Operate the TV with the control/buttons on the TV. (Channels etc)
If the TV operates correctly then do the following.
3) Try operating with the remote unit. If the problem returns then it's the remote failing.

Sometime remotes can be reset.
Try this;
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.

Try it again. If the problem is still there then the remote is bad.
Since this is a new TV you should use your warranty to replace any bad parts.

It is possible that the pads are worn out or there is damage on the main board, possible carbon track failure . you might need to reform the tracks or use a remote control repair kit to retrack. Also in some cases the controller IC can be defective as it fails to detect the selected port.

My Visio E371vl won't power on with remote. I changed batteries & even bought a universal remote & no power on. the new remote works on other Visio TVs. I can turn the tv on with manual controls.


Dear Anonymous,
  • Unplug the TV for 20 Minutes and plug it back.
  • If that does not work, the remote Sensor on your TV is defective.
  • Take it to a repair shop.

Looking for a jumbo remote that will operate a new 26 inch Vizio Montior. The old one don't work. Is there a new version?


A remote is not designed to control and Moitor. They only run by the video/sound output from the pc. So I am taking it for granted that you meant TV instead of Monitor.

A. Before buying a new remote try replacing the batteries first.

B. I found the Innovage Jumbo Remote Control manual and it has no code for the Vizio TV, you will need to utilize the remote's "Code Search" option.

C. Instructions

1. Turn on the Vizio TV.
2. Aim the Jumbo Universal Remote at the Vizio TV and hold down the "Code Search" button on the remove for roughly 3 to 5 seconds. The LED lights on the Jumbo Universal Remote will come on.
3. Press the "TV" button at the top of the Jumbo Universal Remote.
4. Start pressing the "ON/OFF" button repeatedly until the Vizio TV turns off. This will likely take several minutes due to the amount of available codes.
5. Press "Enter" on the remote immediately after the Vizio TV turns off to save the code.
6. Test the Jumbo Universal Remote by trying to control the Vizio TV with the remote. If the control doesn't work with the remote, repeat the entire process.

Good luck.

My kids broke the remote that came with my vizio soundbar, I bought a universal that worked fine for about 6 months and now I can not get a remote to work with my vizio at all. I bought a new remote and...


Hello,

The remotes you have purchased and tried, are universal remotes ? For an item like that the default remote that came with it would work best. I would email Vizio customer support and get a replacement. I had to do the same thing about a year ago. They charged me 10 dollars for a new one.

Post back if you have any question's or comments.

My universal remote and vizio remote no longer operate the tv. how do i fix it.


I have the same problem. I just called Vizio and they advised me to take the batteries out and press each button two times, replace the batteries, and try again. When that didn't work, they said they were going to send me a new remote. I told them the universal didn't work either and they said they have to send the factory remote first, if that doesn't work they then have to send out someone to service it. Their support is 1-877-698-4946. Have serial number ready.
