Go to parental setting and switch it to No Parent Lock.

The parential unlock code = 0000 by default.

After you unlock the option for PIP becomes enabled and you can enjoy it :)

Read the user manual that came with the TV buddy , it has all that details. I had same problem hence I know

It has one of the biggest and best user guide in television market that I know have.

Hi martnezlizz, I will be glad to help you with your problem,

  1. You must have 2 video sources connected to the tv.
  2. Connect your main source, cable, antenna or satillite.
  3. Connect your second source, dvd player or game console.
  4. Press the PIP button on the remote.
  5. Press the Pinput button on the remote.
  6. Choose which input you want to use as second source.
Detailed instructions can be found on page 55 of the manual and here is a link to download it. http://www.vizio.com/assets/0/92/94/118/de070116-91ba-4d18-b436-f3c168e03b53.pdf    Let me know if I can assist further and please rate this solution. lone99star

I lose Audio from internal speakers Vizio


This issue is actually caused by my cable box. Access the audio SETTINGS on Hand held Cable Remote, and turn on the HDMI and or "Digital Audio Out" option. found on 'more' settings list. This should fix the issue. I had assumed the Cable companeis 'Boot' would have installed this feature during its initialization.

I want to load my tv code from my vizio on my remote for my 321


I used 0178 to program my universal remote. You can also try 10056, 10178,10864,10885,11756,10056,11758, and 11499. Then you can try by dropping the "1" from the front of these codes.
Most good remotes have a programming function if this does not work, where the remote will "learn" the proper code.
The actual button remote codes are as follows:
0 00117
1 00121
2 00119
3 00123
4 00116
5 00120
6 00118
7 00122
8 00245
9 00249

Vizio SV470XVT1A makes screeching sound


Hello,

This sounds as if it could be a ballast problem, or a switching power supply transformer problem. Both of these can produce this sound. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician repair this set due to the dangerous voltages and currents that could be present. In my experience with these TV I would have the technician pay special attention to the power supply board and the backlight/inverter section which includes the ballast used to fire the backlight.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Vizio 47" sv470xvt1a 6" wide verticle green bar on screen


Hello ,

I would suggest checking the driver circuitry for the LCD screen and I would also check the connectors from the driver board to the LCD. Either a component has begun to malfunction (hence the excessive heat) or the component has becom thermally sensitive and is reacting to existing heat and is allowwing excessive current to pass causing more heat to be generated. In any event have a qualified TV technician look at this problem because he will have the proper equipment to troubleshoot the TV in the proper fashion.

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.
