SOURCE: Not able to program vizio remote towork with att uverse Cisco box

Hi,
Maybe too late for you but ATT just gave me a code that works with my Vizio plasma. Code is 1343. Even the mute works correctly. They gave me some others to try but I didn't need them. Other codes were 1018, 0030 and 0056.

SOURCE: cannot turn CC ON/OFF via remotes

Try this combination.

1) Start with the cable box turned on and TV on tuned to the cable box.

2) Press the POWER button for the cable box and then quickly press the MENU button.

3) This should bring up the user setting menu. Use the arrow keys on remote to go to Closed Caption and press right arrow button this should bring up the closed caption menu.

4) Press the OK button and this should either turn CC on or off.

5) Once Closed Caption is turned off press LEFT ARROW button to return to User Settings Menu.

6) Press the POWER button to turn the Cable box back on and the Closed Caption should be gone....


Good Luck.....

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.

Use Universal Remote on DTA


I needed to setup my Vizio TV's remote to control the Cisco DTA 170HD. I was able to get it working by using the Scientific Atlanta code 01877. Follow this link to read the user manual for the Vizio and there are more codes posted in there.

it looks like the panel is going bad or the main board. try to change the main board if that does not fix your problem the panel is bad. open the tv and get the main board part number and look for it on ebay.

My tv [vizio vf550m] won't respond to a remote.


Vizio is famous for having main board issues. If you have replaced the IR board the only two other items it could be is a broken wire from the IR to main or the main board has an issue. Nothing else can stop the remote from working provided the remote is working properly.

Remote Sensor Repair


Before condemming the infared remote receiver, make sure that you have tried and original toshiba remote control. Sometimes universals do not always work. If you do have to replace the (IRR), the main circuit board or the button assembly must be removed. The part is soldered in and has only three wires. The approximate cost of the part is around $20. You local service center would probably charge you $80 to $100 for the repair. If you have already tried a number of universals, the chances are that the(IRR is defective). Also try the code search on the universal remote sometimes this will work. Scrivitron
