    I have the same issue - it worked initially though not it only controls the volume. My universal remote still can contril the TV so i am guessing it is the remote.

Press the TV button on the lower right (not the upper right) to tell the remote to control the TV.

The upper buttons are the Input Selector buttons. The lower buttons are the Device Control Selector buttons.

I had this same problem until this dawned on me.

    That was it! Doh, I was pressing the TV button on the top to no avail. Didn't notice the TV button at the bottom.

    OMG. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! I was trying to fix my **** remote forever and was so close to buying a new one when I found this post... talk about a UI FAILURE. Now everything works. I was punching the thing thinking the buttons were broken after hours and hours of trying to fix the thing.

I assume you have to reprogram it.

    Press the LOWER RIGHT "TV" button, NOT the upper right TV button.

    The Upper Right TV button is the TV Input Selector. The Lower Right TV button is the Device Control selector.

    I had this same problem until that dawned on me.

We replaced the IR sensor on our Vizio but still cannot control the volume via the remote (which has tested good). Any further suggestions?


Since sensor is receiving the signal of other inputs, there is nothing wrong with it. This looks like an incompatibility issue. You may have to retry using the original remote control.

Vizio remote control not working


Hi, I had the same problem. My vizio remote for my 42 inch 2 month old vizio also seemed to stop working. Here's what I did: My vizio remote (like most remote's nowadays) was designed for multiple components (tv, dvd, vcr, etc). All you need to do to make the remote work again is set it back to tv. Now, the confusing thing about vizio remotes is that they actually have TWO places where you can switch the remote to the appliance you want to control. One is on top of the remote, the other is on the BOTTOM. Switch it back to TV using the BOTTOM. My remote had stopped working because I had inadvently switched it to another component on the BOTTOM component switch.

Code for Vizio tv


I contacted Vizio the other day. They tell me that they use the same generic codes as LG. I have Suddenlink Cable, formerly Charter, so I still use the Charter remote. My remote only needed 3 digits and I have noticed that many need 4 or 5. I can tell you that the LG code worked for my tv. I can power on/off, volume, and change the channel. All other functions require the manufacture's remote. The code I used is 005. There was also 004 but that did not work on my tv. Hope this helps someone!
