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!

Part 1: Know about Vizio Smart TV

Vizio Inc. is an American privately held company that develops consumer electronics. It was founded in October 2002 and nowadays it is known as one of the best smart TV brands around the world.

In addition, Vizio has powerful picture performance, beautiful design and best display ability. The most popular function is that you can even use your smartphone to control the Vizio Smart TV via App.
In spite of its powerful functions, the ability of Vizio Smart TV to play videos is still limited. Vizio can't play all kinds of videos or movies if those videos are not in the right format supported by Vizio. If you are an Apple user, you will easily notice that you can't watch iTunes movies on Vizio Smart TV because almost iTunes videos are in M4V format, a video container format developed by Apple and is optionally protected by DRM copy protection. That is the reason why iTunes movies can't be played on Vizio Smart TV. According to Vizio official website, we can find MP4 is supported by Vizio Smart TV, which means we can easily watch the iTunes movies on Vizio as long as we can remove DRM to convert M4V to MP4.

According to the above we learn that only if we remove DRM from iTunes movies can we watch iTunes movies on Vizio Smart TV. Fortunately there are many video converter you can find on the Internet, but if you need a more reliable program to perform this job, I think Leawo TunesCopy is worth using.
http://www.leawo.org/tunescopy/ is a professional iTunes DRM removal program to remove DRM from iTunes movies so that convert M4V to MP4 which supported by Vizio Smart TV. Differing from other video converters, it is a single function program that only can remove DRM from iTunes videos and convert M4V to MP4. However, Leawo TunesCopy is more convenient for many Apple users than other video converters because TunesCopy can automatically import users play list. Its simple and convenient interface can help you use it easily as well.
I will show you the detail about how to use Leawo TunesCopy to remove DRM from iTunes movies in the next part.

Part 3: Guide to remove DRM from iTunes movies and watch DRM-free iTunes movies on Vizio Smart TV with Leawo TunesCopy

Before following the steps below, you need to download and install Leawo Video Converter on computer first. After installing Leawo TunesCopy program, follow the guidance you will get your DRM-free iTunes movie.

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.

Looking for a jumbo remote that will operate a new 26 inch Vizio Montior. The old one don't work. Is there a new version?


A remote is not designed to control and Moitor. They only run by the video/sound output from the pc. So I am taking it for granted that you meant TV instead of Monitor.

A. Before buying a new remote try replacing the batteries first.

B. I found the Innovage Jumbo Remote Control manual and it has no code for the Vizio TV, you will need to utilize the remote's "Code Search" option.

C. 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 will likely take several minutes due to the amount of available codes.
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.

Good luck.
