SOURCE: I just got this Vizio

Before you go to any more trouble troubleshooting potential hardware and/or connection issues, look at this page of reviews on Dell's site, taking special care to read 'Review 8' by an owner named 'Milwsport'.

SOURCE: why cant I connect to

Is it asking for your user code. You actually have to go to your account on netflix website and enter in what tv or blue ray player you are using and it will give you a conformation code that you enter on the device itself when trying to log in and it should work fine. You must activate it in the Netfix account first and it is free of charge.

SOURCE: the tv goes on but the apps display with netflix,

Try restetting the TV by unplugging for 2 minutes then retrying it. If it still fails then there is most likely a failure on the main board in the TV

Need help adding Netflix on my VIZIO tv


Make sure you have a smart TV (has the netflix App preloaded). Then make sure your TV is connected to the internet via wired or wireless. Once this is complete bring up the vizio menu (hit the V button on the remote) and then you can open the Netflix app and sign in. If you do not have a "smart tv" then you will need some other device like a PS3, Wii or other to access netflix.

Vizio tv keeps freezing up when i try to launch my apps like netflix and then nothing works and i have to unplug it


Listen to "Papeon's" solution above!
My 65 inch Visio smart TV, did the same thing, kept locking up everytime we tried to start Netflix. Tried several different things that didn't work, including unplugging to reboot.
We tried his way and it worked perfectly!
Not sure if Mr. McKelvey is a TV repairman looking for business for his profession, but dragging a 65 inch TV to the shop is a ridiculous first option!

The Vizio does not have Internet capabilities. You need to hook up a computer via the VGA or HDMI port. Then youor computer controls what you do with the intenet.

The Netflix app on my vizio svt422xvt (one of the Vizios with VIA internet & wifi built-in) won't connect to Netflix. It directs me to the Netflix website for help, but Netflix help tells me to...


I had the same problem with my Vizio XVT473SV. I couldn't find the Netflix Activation Code. When I clicked on the Netflix App, the TV would ask me if I wanted to connect to Netflix, then it would ask me if I was a Netflix member. After clicking yes to both, it would tell me it couldn't connect to the Netflix server, check with Netflix.com/tvhelp. After a couple hours of troubleshooting, the solution was......your first use of the Netflix App has to be via the Ethernet Port/Cable. This will give you a screen with the Activation Code, after you activate the code in your Netflix account, you can go back to using WiFi on your Vizio TV to connect to Netflix. Step by step instructions are...
1) Exit the Vizio Netflix App.
2) Physically connect an Ethernet cable to your broadband (just temporarily)
3) Check to make sure the Vizio is using the Ethernet port and not your WiFi (Apps Button - HDTV Settings - Network...may have to reboot the TV to get Ethernet port connection)
4) Start the Vizio Netflix App
5) Click OK to start the Netflix App
6) You should now see a different screen that gives you the Netflix Activation Code.
7) On your Computer, Login in to Netflix,
8) Click on "Your Account & Help" link on upper right corner
9) Scroll down to Watching Instantly on your TV or Computer section
10) Click on Activate a Netflix Ready Device
11) Enter the Activation Code shown on your Vizio TV and click Activate
12) Once your Netflix account (on your computer) shows it is active, your Vizio TV will automatically log in. You should see your Instant Queue.
13) Exit the Netflix App, unplug the Ethernet cable, Turn Off your Vizio TV.
14) After 20 seconds or so (remember the TV is software driven), turn the TV back on and your WiFi should connect again.
15) Use your Netflix App and this time it should automatically connect via WiFi
note: just make sure that your wireless DSL/Cable Modem or Wireless Router is not blocking your WiFi connection request from the Vizio. You can check the connection status in the modem/router or in the Vizio in the HDTV Settings - Network.
