Find the model number on the back of the VIZIO remote control.
Go to the link below and enter the model number in the SEARCH BY MODEL NUMBER space provided or look for it in the scroll down SELECT YOUR PRODUCT menu.
You should see a picture of your product and underneath it a small grey tab marked SUPPORT about halfway down the page.
From there you should be able to safely download a copy of the USER'S MANUAL which will contain the codes for your TV. Just click on the user manual link highlighted in red.
While you are there you can also download a copy of your TV's user manual if you don't still have it. The tv's model number will be on a sticker on the back of the set.
Good luck, hope this helps. Keep us up to date on your progress.

SOURCE: The TV doesn't power on.
The problem might be on your power supply section.
1. Check for open resistor or maybe a shorted transistor. Use a multimeter
2. Also check for a leak capacitor
Is the fuse you replace is still o.k? at times the blown fuse indicates that there is a short circuit on your t.v. Maybe the noise you hear is also because of a short circuit. Be careful in replacing fuse, always replace same type for the protection of you t.v
Hope this may help you

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.
Please ensure that the battery is in good condition. Check the battery terminal for corrosion, Scratch it with fine sandpaper.
If the battery and its terminal is not the issue, please confirm if the remote control emits an infrared by pointing directly the sensor (infrared emitter) to your cellphone/digital camera. If it is working fine, you will be able to see the flash of the infrared through the screen of your camera. Watch the video below.
If you've confirmed that there's no infrared coming out from the remote control then this is an indication that the remote control itself is already faulty. Replace it with new one (part no. 0980-0305-3300 ).
If you can see the flash of the infrared, the IR board inside the TV is faulty. Please inquire at this link for replacement.
Hope I helped you.
Good luck and have a great day!

Testimonial: "Thank you so much for your help,carried it to shop this morning ,they say I have to have new main board,hdmi port 1 wasn't working either."
The remote can be tested and Radio Shack and most repair shops have a simple card for testing---point the remote at the card and press buttons and the strip on the card either lights up or not.
Depending on the problem most remotes are fixable.
Stay away from "Universals" as they are usually trouble.
If batteries and remote test good the set has a receiver for the infrared signal the remote sends-
95% of the time it is the remote and not the receiver or set.
A precise model number would tell me of common issues with your set including the remote.
