SOURCE: no picture or sound, light comes on in the front and have to unplug tv to turn it off.

I had this exact problem on my Vizio 47" HDTV. I removed the speakers and all the screws on the back cover. Took the cover off and located the fuses on the largest circuit board. The are in the upper right hand corner of the board. There are 3 of them in a row labeled LF 1.5, LF 3.0 and LF 3.0. The are white in color with copper ends. I took a volt meter and measured continuity across all fuses individually and found the LF 1.5 to be blown. The guy at the electronics store sold me a barrel 1.5A fuse and told me to soldier it across the top of the blown fuse. It took an extra set of hands but the TV works perfectly.

For the cheap guy like me who will probably do more harm than good:
Also check for the F3 Fuse on that same main input board. It is located in the upper right corner. Hard wired fuses; very small. You will see F1-F4 (F4 is empty). You can solder a replacement fuse right over it. I would recommend piggybacking the fuse with a fuse you can replace. Will need the holder and a new fuse. 6 bucks.
Doesn't solve problem, but I can go another 2 1/2 years and the wife won't blame me for screwing up the TV in the first place.

Wanting to program my dish network remote to control my vizio sound bar. The dish remote is a 5.4 IR and I can't find vizio in my manual. Is there any way to do this?


I don't show we have any codes for the Vizio sound bar. Have you checked your Visio manual for the code; I know that Vizio TVs provide codes for different providers. If you still can't find a code, I have provided instructions on how you can perform a power scan for programming the remote.

Address To Other Equipment Using Power Scan
  • Remote: All Remotes (except Basic)
    1. With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button back lights illuminate, then release.
    2. Press and release the Power button. AUX Mode: Before pressing and releasing the Power button
      • Press 0 for a TV
      • Press 1 for a VCR/DVD
      • Press 2 for any other device
      Then Press STAR (*)
    3. Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. Note: If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
    4. Press the POUND (#) button. Note: If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.

Need 3 digit code for vizio vsb200 audio bar for a clikr-5 UR5U-8780L-TWM remote


There is no listed 3 digit code. You will have to do a code search. Press and hold the Ok and Aux button for 3 seconds. You will have to press the CH+ or CH- (does not matter which) for upwards of 400 times but the code is in there somewhere between 290 and higher, I lost count. Here are two tips. Move the cable box out of site of the remote and expect the TV to turn off when it hits its code. This will make you think you have found the code as the sound will go off. Don't fall for it. Look at the light on the sound bar only. Once the TV turns off you will need to have it;s remote handy to turn it back on so you will hear the sound again.

Once you pass 290 or so go slow and don't miss the light going out on the sound bar or you will have to do it all over again.

Once you turn the sound bar off press the AUX button again to lock in the code.

It's a pain but the code for Vizio sound bars is in there, don't let them tell you it's not. Took me about 7 tries to find the sequence and make the mistakes but my Vizio bar is now Programmed to the Cliker-5 and works fine. Good Luck.

I Have a 5.3 IR Remote and a vizio VSB200 Sound Bar. The remote will not program to the Sound Bar. The Optical Audio is connected to the TV. What do I need to do.


lojr,

We have code to use with amplifiers, TVs, VCRs, and DVD players. I do not have a code that will work on this sound bar. What is the code you are trying to use? Did Vizio supply a code with your sound bar. They do have codes to use for their TVs to program DISH remotes. Please let me know if you have a code or you can contact Vizio to see if they have a code available.

I have provided the Power Scan instructions on programming the remote to a sound bar. Use the VCR button to attempt to program the sound bar.

If you have further questions, please post it here.

Do you have back light when turning on the TV? if you do then just replace the main board should resolve the problem. if you do not have back light, you will need to replace the inverter board(s) depending on your model. The inverter board(s) is located on the left side of the TV facing back of TV. you may have two inverter boards depending on your model. the other is located on the right side of the TV. Both mount vertically.
