VIZIO VP50 HDTV10A - LOOSES REMOTE FUNCTION

2 Yr. old set.
When using the remote to switch to DTV input, remote becomes inop., and blank screen displayed.
Must use the controls on the side of the set to return to any other input.
Once changed to any other input on the set, remote works again.
Did a hard reset, but problem remains.
What board is this related to?

Thanx in advance.

Hello I have had the same thing happen, but if you use the input button on your remote you can switch to another device or regular tv and use the channel up and down. Hope this helps.

    I am having the same problem. I connected an HD antenna for first time on the TV and when I switch to DTV the screen goes blank, remote inoperable. Only controls on side of TV work.

My VIZIO vx32L/hdtv10a remote only lets me change channels. No volume up/down or power on/off function either


If your audio is being routed through a home theater system then you will not get vol control through the remote for the TV. You will have to use the home theater remote.

Vizio VP50 HDTV: I connected an HD antenna for first time on the TV and when I switch to DTV the screen goes blank, remote inoperable. Only controls on side of TV work, but there is no way to do a scan...


I have the exact same problem. It may be the tuner board is bad. I did some research and it seems like this tv is junk. I saw a link that said call Vizio and they are aware of all it's problems and are willing to give a new tv free of charge. I called and they knew nothing about it, but did offer to fix it out of warranty for $285 all problems fixed out the door. Also, TV locks up on RGB input and can't switch inputs until I hooked a computer to the RGB input, then I was able to select a different input.
Please post if you found a solution to the DTV issue..

Vizio VW32L HDTV10A stopped responding with Vizio


Change the batteries in your remote. If your cat was laying on a button it could have drained them.

Here's tip - you can use your camera on your cell phone to see the IR signal coming out of your remote. Point the remote at your cam and press "On" or any button. You should see a bright flash with every key stroke.
