How to program a vizio tv without a remote vizio


Upon first start you should be prompted. If not, you will find a series of buttons on the TV itself; power,channel up down, volume up/down, input and menu. Hit the menu button and the menu will pop up. Scroll up and down with channel button, select and controls are the volume. either that or you can get a Samsung phone that has an app built into it called watch on, which has a universal remote that works for virtually everything. Happy surfing.

You need to "program" your Shaw remote to control your TV, including the volume up/down on the remote.
Take your Shaw remote control, and follow the instructions on the back. If that does not work, telephone Shaw, and ask for technical support for TV.

Need the tv code for samsung ph t4254 to program my bell remote to my tv


Hi,

The codes for Samsung TVs on a Bell remote are:

505, 506, 516, 523, 526, 566,

573, 612, 627, 647, 652, 653,

654, 655, 656, 658, 659, 664,

665, 667, 669, 670, 679, 680,
704, 717, 730, 738

Try each of the above codes in turn until you find the one which works best, i.e. controls most functions. This may be limited to contolling the power, volume and channel functions. I have also pasted the programming instructions for your remote below, in case you need them.

Regards,
BElectric.


Program your remote control to operate your TV

NOTE: Before you start, locate the remote codes for the TV and write them down.
Follow these steps to program your remote control to work with your TV:

  1. Press and hold the TV button on the remote until the SAT, VCR and AUX buttons light up.
  2. Let go of the TV button. It should start to flash.
  3. While the TV button is flashing, enter one of the 3-digit codes for the TV that you wrote down earlier.
  4. After entering the 3-digit code, press the # button on the remote. If the code was entered successfully, the TV light will flash 3 times.
  5. Try to control the TV's volume and power.
  6. If the remote did not control the TV, simply repeat steps 1 to 5 with another code from the list.
If you tried all the codes provided for the manufacturer, try the following steps to find another code.
  1. Make sure the TV is on.
  2. Press and hold the TV button on the remote until the SAT, TV and VCR buttons light up.
  3. Let go of the TV button. The TV button should start to flash.
  4. Press the Power button on the remote control. The TV button will stay lit.
  5. Press the up arrow on the remote every second until the TV turns off.
  6. When the TV turns off, press the # button on the remote to lock the code. If the scan was successful, the TV light will flash 3 times.
Your remote should now be programmed to work with your TV.

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.

Code for Vizio tv


I contacted Vizio the other day. They tell me that they use the same generic codes as LG. I have Suddenlink Cable, formerly Charter, so I still use the Charter remote. My remote only needed 3 digits and I have noticed that many need 4 or 5. I can tell you that the LG code worked for my tv. I can power on/off, volume, and change the channel. All other functions require the manufacture's remote. The code I used is 005. There was also 004 but that did not work on my tv. Hope this helps someone!
