If your manual buttons on the set do not work, then I would return the set. If they do work then contact the store on where to get a warranty replacement remote, or just go back to the store with the remote and see if it works on another Vizio.

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.

New 47" Vizio tv.


Look at your remote and there should be a menu button. Once in the menu you will see a screen section that will let you select between 4:3, 16:9..... Toggle through those until you find the one that works with your tv.
Also there may be a button on your remote that looks like a box with an arrow pointing left and right. Click on that and it will toggle through the same thing mentioned above

Vur9 remote only controls the volume and nothing else, cant change channels or anything any suggestions?


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.

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!
