    I have the same problems with enabling PIP, but there are no options for changing the parental setting on my setup menu. Where is this located?

    Garyp47, thanks for posting this solution - I had the same problem and your solution worked, thanks! Note to others that Parental settings is in "TV" mode, but not "HDMI" mode. Too bad Vizio manual doesn't cover this. Extra question: do you know this "Power On Reset" instructions for this HDTV?

You have to go into the "Parental" settings and change the "Rating Enable" setting to off. Default password is 0000. The PIP will not work if your second source is fed into one of the AV inputs. It must be a composite or digital input. You should see the PIP menus once you change the Parental setting even if there is no other source turned on. This info is not in the book - had to call tech support.

You have to be in 'TV' mode to access the parental settings option. Not sure why. When it asks for the code it's 0000

Hello, Currently I have Vaio laptop connected to my Vizio 42" inch flat screen TV. There's no audio coming from my Vizio TV. So I connected an audio cable connected to the stereo jack. Where do I connect...


You need a 1/8 in cord on both ends. Normally, its an 1/8 inch audio connection in your tv to work with PC (the same connection as when you plug it in your comp) So u would need a wire that both ends are 1/8 inch (Headphone jack sized)

SV420XVT cant get extended television giude to display


The guide information that is in the manual is not correct. If you are using the manual that came with your television than look around for an addendum that states how your guide will work. Just a piece of paper that was included with your television. They included this addendum with televisions that had the guide info already printed in the manuals. The full guide is not available on newer VIZIO televisions. Also, if you have the guide now and need your television needs service, you may not have the guide feature after the service. This is something that is not related to VIZIO televisions alone. Many other name brands will not have the full guide. It is a licensing issue and until resolved you will not have the guide.

Cannot get pip function to work. i try to select pip and it says not available, but in my manual it says it is available. its really weird. it is even listed on my remote, but does not work when i push it....


Some models of the TV have PIP as an option, but not installed, and to make it cheaper, they use the same remote and menus, just disable the option, as it's not supported. Best to check the Manufacturer's website to make sure that it does do PIP, not that a related model which has the same user manual does PIP.
