Question about Vizio Televison & Video
There are absolutely millions of remote controls out there and if.... with a capital I, you're lucky enough to find a store or company selling the exact remote, chances are it'll cost 20X what you're prepared to pay and take hours of trawling websites, getting frustrated and even then, not find one.
I would advise the following; 1- get onto play store for Android or if you've got iphone try the apple store. Chances are there's an app you can get to do the job. Cost will be very little if anything at all. Most are FREE.
2- If you have the old remote, it's likely easily repairable and usually just needs cleaning the battery terminals with some fine grade emery paper. If you're up to taking it apart (easy), take our the rubber sheer with all the buttons on and give the contacts on both the back of the buttons and the pcb they sit on a gentle wipe with an alcohol based cleaner. (HOT TIP: MOST HAND SANITIZER GELS WILL DO THE JOB). If you want to check if ANY remote works, point your phones camera at the front and press any button on the remote. The camera will pick up the infrared signal (invisible to the ***** eye) & show up on your screen easily.
3- Buy a regular universal remote control and follow the instructions to set it up for your TV.
4- If you can find a remote for any another model TV by the same company, you'll find many of the functions will still work for your model.
Lastly, electrical items are often made by firms who change names or get bought out or taken over - check out the manufacturer history to see if another brand name would provide same control but under a different name.
Hope you get sorted.
