What you are dealing with is not a bad remote controller, the problem is from your IR Sensor. You will need to replace this IR Sensor. You Vizio TV has a common defect with the IR Sensor. Make sure you order the revised version so you don't encounter this problem again. You can find the IR Sensor here: 3637 0022 0189 0171 1671 0892 Vizio IR Sensor

SOURCE: remote stop working

You should verify if the remote has failed. Contact the support for Vizio, or ask your dealer where you can buy original replacement accessories.

Visio Tech Support:

Most of the time, we've seen the remote fail. Sometimes we are able to service the remote. Sometimes, the IR LED and or the crystal fails in the remotes. If it is more than this, it is impossible to have internal service parts for most remotes. It takes service experience to be able to change these parts.

On rare occasions the IR remote sensor and remote processor area in the set can have a failure. It is best to try another remote to verify this before sending the set for service.

The most common causes of failure of a remote controller is dropping, rough handling, getting food and drink inside, or putting the batteries in backwards.

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.

SOURCE: i can not get my

Hi,

Before I proceed, though, it would help me to know if the cable remote works with the TV, or if neither remote works.

When you use your new remote,
then look at the red LED at the end of the remote, but look at it through a cell phone camera. Once you do, press a button on the remote and see if you notice the LED illuminating.

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: Flat Screen 42 inch Vizio

You can use your phone camera to test the remote. Place the remote to the camera and push to see the IR on the camera. If this works for more than 3 minutes then the IR detector or the processor circuit in the main board is faulty.
This means you need to remove the main panel and use a multimeter to test when the remote is used, trace and see if the fault leads further to the processor.

I have a 47 inch Vizio m470sv TV with no sound. I think the main board controls the audio, but I think I need a service manual to be sure, and see what's involved in replacing it.

Vizio Model M470SV HDMI port nor working (won't recognize dvd player,Xbox,play station etc)


This unit has four HDMI ports. Input is not automatically set to the port that your devices are connected to. Take a look at the markings that correspond to the port that your peripherals are connected to, then use the Remote Control to change the respective HDMI port.

With your external device connected and turned on, press the HDMI button on the Remote Control several times in succession until the proper HDMI port is displayed. Output from your device should now be displayed on the screen.

Why is my Vizio M470SV have a black screen but blue indicator light comes on


Most likely it's a capacitor fault.

Google "Capacitor bulge" and then search Youtube for your make and model to see if anyone has done an instructional video. You'll need to be comfortable dismantling the TV and be able to use a soldering iron. If this isn't you then take it to a repair shop.

Visio M470SV will not accept signal from remote


Replace remote batteries, try a universal remote, and look for a Reset button on your remote. Once you've tried all three things, let us know anything else that you can. All we really know at this point is that your remote isn't working.

Bought new Vizio 55"


Had same problem - turned off Adaptive Lumina, Backlight control, and Ambient light sensors on the Vizio advanced picture settings and the Dish remote now works. Vizio was emitting an infared signal that interfered with the Dish remote signals with these settings on. TV still works and looks just fine... But best of all Dish remote works too.
