The 004 code also worked on my Vizio 26" HDTV. I found that I had to be within 6 feet of the TV for the remote to work though. So be just a few feet in front of the TV when programming.

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.

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: two tv's in the same room, both vizio's. How can I

U can't, they both use the same parity. You could put a piece of black electrical tape over the IR receiver in the front of the set so it can't recieve the signal, but when u want to use it by remote you'll have to remove the tape.

Have 2008 vizio smart tv-how do you program a new remote to the tv or tv to the remote?


Hello Mat,
Read the instruction manual that came with the remote as that has codes in it and the procedure to program the remote also. You can also look up the codes via the internet using the make and model of the remote. The listing will usually have all possible codes that might work with your Vizio tv, and you have to try them all until you find the 1 that works.
Good Luck!

It is not the Remote. The problem is in the receiver section of the TV.

Turn on but remote doesn't work


I would try new batteries first. If that doesn't help then replace the remote with a universal unit that you can program to work with your TV.

94 full size blazer keyless remote doesn't work.


Does the spare remote work? Have you tried to reprogram it? These remotes are very cheaply made and prone to key pad failure. To program the remote click this LINK, if that doesn't work buy anew one on eBay for cheap.

Need code for my vizio tv i bought a ihip remote control for my tv


The instructions on letting the Hipi remote to seach for the code that came with my remote are not correct. I used the instructions from HOWTO.COM and printed below. There are two changes from the printed instructions. The first is to push the <TV> button after the <Code Search> button. The second is that the <Enter> button saved the code not the <MUTE> button.

Instructions
1
Turn on the Vizio TV.
2
Aim the Jumbo Universal Remote at the Vizio TV and hold down the "Code Search" button on the remove for roughly 3 to 5 seconds. The LED lights on the Jumbo Universal Remote will come on.
3
Press the "TV" button at the top of the Jumbo Universal Remote.
4
Start pressing the "ON/OFF" button repeatedly until the Vizio TV turns off. (This took only a few tries for my Vizio TV)
5
Press "Enter" on the remote immediately after the Vizio TV turns off to save the code.
6
Test the Jumbo Universal Remote by trying to control the Vizio TV with the remote. If the control doesn't work with the remote, repeat the entire process.

The remote for my samsung ht-tx72 doesn't work even though the tv and dvd reciever lights on the remote work. It doesn't turn on my home theater system. Do I need to reprogram it?


Possibly. Maybe it's malfunctioning.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.
Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.
