How long have you bought the TV? Use your phone and try to connect to the wifi at the tv location. Check if you can see the wifi network SSID name. Where is the router box located in the house? If it is far then try bringing the TV closer to the router box and try to connect. If this is an old TV then your main board and wifi board in the tv could be defective.

How to program a vizio tv without a remote vizio


Upon first start you should be prompted. If not, you will find a series of buttons on the TV itself; power,channel up down, volume up/down, input and menu. Hit the menu button and the menu will pop up. Scroll up and down with channel button, select and controls are the volume. either that or you can get a Samsung phone that has an app built into it called watch on, which has a universal remote that works for virtually everything. Happy surfing.

How do i connect internet to a vizio vw37L tv


Yes, if after you checked all the connections source then your main board is defective. The Wifi/B in the tv could be on the main board or close to the main board but have a tech come out and replace it.

How i am connect Wi Fi or internet to my TV.it is vizio and model number is J V 50 P HD TV 10 A. and Serial number is PHLANCJ2804679. I WANT CONECT WITH INTERNET FOR NETFLIX PLEASE LET ME WHAT CAN I DO.


As I type this, I am using my Vizio 50" plasma. All you need to do is ditch your current monitor you use for your internet service and use the same cord from the monitor to plug it into your RBG port on the back of your tv.
Next for sound there is a 1/4 jack next to the RGB port on your tv. Connect your tv to your audio out on your computer. (headphones or aud out)
Select RGB on your tv, and your good to go. I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse for my computer which makes it more convenient.

I just bought a m221nv from ebay tv dealer an he said i could jus plug it in in my kitchen, bedrm or ? and watch it via my router cause it has wifi no need connect cable, antenna or anything but i cant get...


The wifi connection will allow you to access content via the Vizio Internet Apps (Netflix for example) but not tv broadcasts.
Your tv can access tv broadcasts (CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC) over the air but w/o an external antenna the signal and therefore the quality will probably be weak.
To access cable/direct tv/fios content you will need to connect the tv via a cable.

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.

Missing power cord


HELLO AND NO YOUR AMP SUPPLY IS'NT THE RIGHT AMOUNT YOUR CORD ONLY SUPPLIES 2.5 AND YOUR T.V. CALLS FOR 5.2 IT'LL RUN YOUR T.V. BUT THE REASON IT WONT WORK IS BECAUSE YOUR T.V. WILL PULL 5.2 AMPS AND YOUR CORD IS ONLY RATED FOR 2.5 IN TIME THE CORD WILL BURN OUT OR GET HOT AND CAUSE A POSSABLE FIRE.
