Question about Vizio L37 Television

Vizio Turns On Sometimes

After using my Vizio, turning it off and then trying to turn it back on with both the remote or TV power button the result is usually nothing happens. I spoke with Vizio tech support and they think it is the power supply. Too bad my TV is one month over the warranty. However, I did find the power supply available on eBay.

My question to anyone is how do you take it a part? I tried to take the back panel off by removing all the screws, but it does not easily come off. Do I have to pry it off? I was afraid to break something so I did not try doing that. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If you're this scratching your head at this point wait till you get inside and see the multi-pin ribbon cable that awaits you...
You are far better off taking this one to the shop and having them do it than causing yourself one hell of a lot of frustration, not to mention what a simple screw-up could cost you..
And don't rely on the power supplies from ebay. You're far better off sending that supply in to someone like PTS Electronics and having it rebuilt - or have the shop you take it to rebuild it than to put your faith in something that critical that you bought off ebay.
I've been in the repair business for more than 20 years. If it was something simple I'd be the first to write out the instructions on how to do it. In fact I've been maybe a bit zealous in over-estimating someone's ability. In this case my friend my advice is get the help and you'll be glad you did...
Besides, a newer unit like that is worth the expense.

Need remote code for Vizio D32h-CO. No remote for TV. Have Dish remote

For my universal remote control's manual, all of the VIZIO codes are:


Also, remember that you can have the remote scan for codes on its own. On the remote just hold the "TV" control button (should be at the top near the power button) and the power button turns on. Then hold the power button too, and it shuts back off; keep holding until it turns back on and then it will stay on. Then, point the remote at the TV (it should be on) and press the power button every three seconds. It will test a code every two or three seconds. When your TV finally shuts itself off in response, you've got the right code and the remote should work.

Need code for my vizio tv i bought a ihip remote control for my tv

The instructions on letting the Hipi remote to seach for the code that came with my remote are not correct. I used the instructions from HOWTO.COM and printed below. There are two changes from the printed instructions. The first is to push the <TV> button after the <Code Search> button. The second is that the <Enter> button saved the code not the <MUTE> button.

Turn on the Vizio TV.
Aim the Jumbo Universal Remote at the Vizio TV and hold down the "Code Search" button on the remove for roughly 3 to 5 seconds. The LED lights on the Jumbo Universal Remote will come on.
Press the "TV" button at the top of the Jumbo Universal Remote.
Start pressing the "ON/OFF" button repeatedly until the Vizio TV turns off. (This took only a few tries for my Vizio TV)
Press "Enter" on the remote immediately after the Vizio TV turns off to save the code.
Test the Jumbo Universal Remote by trying to control the Vizio TV with the remote. If the control doesn't work with the remote, repeat the entire process.

Have an RCA remote i am trying to use with my Vizio 1080p hdtv. Instructions on the universal remote are as follows: -Turn on TV -Press and hold "code search" untill light stays lit. release. -Press TV...

Newer brands of tvs are using new codes that old remotes don't have. Only older learing remotes from original remotes or USB upgradable or newer one that were made after the tv was made will work.

Need Vizio TV code for my Samsung HT-X50 home theater remote!

Mine is 5. Press the TV button and let it go. When it quits glowing press the power button and hold it down. Then press a number (1-86) on the keypad while holding the power button down. If the TV turns off, you are done. Press the power button again and the tv should come on. If it does not work. Release the power button for a second and then repeat with a different number until the tv turns off.

Vizio won't turn off

This could be a mainboard problem. Sometimes one of the fuses may be bad and may freeze up causing the TV to not be able to power off.

Tv won't stay on

i have seen this before and it may be the front power button being stuck and when your remote turns it on the stuck button turns it back off again. I have an older mitsubishi that will not boot up right sometimes and i have to unplug it and plug it back in fot it to come on. I used to pick up broken tv and fix the power buton and resell them
