Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Tv not changing channels.

I purchased a Vizio 42" LCD HDTV 10A from an auction site. The picture and volume work good, but it doesn't change channels with either the remote, or the tv buttons. This was originally a return, and is stuck on channel 10, which works fine. When I go to "info" on the remote, is reads, "no program title, no program details, and also, "cc-off". Does that mean channel changer off. If so how do you turn it on. I have no manuals or paperwork for the set.Please help. Bob.

You need to "program" your Shaw remote to control your TV, including the volume up/down on the remote.
Take your Shaw remote control, and follow the instructions on the back. If that does not work, telephone Shaw, and ask for technical support for TV.

Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of

That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

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!
