Did you try TURNING OFF the TV with the same switch and then trying the remote?

if you contact hisense all they can say is "send email, send email. there is no support from them at all. this is what i have found. TURN THE TV OFF BY THE SET ITSELF NOT BY THE REMOTE, THEN UNPLUG THE TV AND LEAVE IT OFF FOR 30-40 MINUTES OR BETTER YET OVERNIGHT. THIS WILL RESET THE TV. HOPE THIS HELPS

look closely at the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. If you see any with the tops bulging out, replace them. Especially the 1000mfd caps labeled EC9, EC10, EC18, EC19, EC20

SOURCE: Vizio VX32L No Display and Can't Power Off

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

 
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
 
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

SOURCE: Can't change channel using the remote or buttons on tv

Simple Fix

I had the same problem, couldn't change the channels with the remote or on the side of the TV. This was for a Vizio 37"

Here is the fix:

1. Turn on TV

2. With remote, press the Menu Button

3. Go to Antenna Menu

4. Select Auto Search
Let it search, it could take several minutes. It may not finish to 100%, mine got stuck at 79% for 10 minutes. It's fine if that happens, go ahead and cancel.

5. It should be done, your remote will work perfect along with the TV channel buttons.

Having trouble finding out whether it's my remote or TV that is the problem? Need help!...I have a Hisense led lcd 32" model number HL32K160L. long story short, I turned the TV on at its main power button...


Hi sounds like the remote control unit as it is a transmitter not a receiver, have you tried rubbing your hand firmly over all the buttons on the remote just in case a button is stuck down.
Hope this helps

Hisense TV model #40H5 won't respond to remote or buttons on TV.Ive tried changing Input,channel,adjusting volume & turning TV off.


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

I, also, have the Hisense LCD 1504 and cannot turn it on with the original remote. I have to use the ON button on the side every morning. You have to hold this button in for a while then wait a while and presto, the blue button shows on the front and the picture comes on. If it fails to work the first try, just try try again. It does work for me this way. We had this same experience with the TV in our room at a Hotel where we were on vacation and the TV worked fine when we turned it on using the side ON button. It just takes a while for the picture to appear. Hope this clue will help someone.

My Hisense lcd is lock.


This is how I got mine to work after weeks of struggling just trying to find a new remote (hisense is really hard to contact....).
1) Turn the TV ON. unplug the tv while still ON 2) hold down the "menu" button on the side of the TV and plug it back in. keep holding it down. the TV should turn on with the menu popping up. use the Vol <> keys and Channel <> keys to navigate the menu. go to the Vchip menu, and play around. I'm not sure what ultimately worked, but i changed the Vchip password to 1111, turned the reset menu to "on" and played around with the ratings settings (turning most of them to "u"s etc).
I went through this process several times and finally, the black background behind the menu turned to static. I played around with the channels, and the TV was unlocked. I turned the TV off, and then on again, and the channels showed up normally (no static). and it was no longer locked. I had to do the unplug thing several times, and was getting really frustrated looking for an "unlock code" in the manual (it just says press the button on the remote. so it was not really helpful).
But really, once you can just get to that menu you've made some progress, and just keep playing around with it until something works.
Best of luck!!
