The reason is that your TV doesn't support the pip function it may be on the remote but check the manual look for the picture of the remote and it should tell you what buttons work or not

The solution is simple. It is a single tuner for PIP, only two sets can be run just not off the same tuner. TV/ AV1/ AV2, COMPONENT 1/ COMPONENT 2/ RGB, HDMI1/ HDMI2.
You can mix the signals ie: tv and compnent 1 or tv and hdmi1.

Not tv and av1as they utilize the same tuner.
Hope it helps.

Let me know what you find out, I have a similar problem. I can get the PIP screen to come up but it will not allow me to have it on an input that actually shows a picture - just blue screen.

Does my vizio e series a-1 Tv have pip?

You do not give your exact model number so I couldn't look at the specific manual/users guide. I did look at one of the e-series guides and there was no mention of PIP (I presumed Picture in Picture and searched for several variations with no success). However if you go to the web page below, you will be able to find your exact model and then download the precise user guide and check it for PIP.

Only getting a small picture in left hand corner of screen

It sounds like you might be in the PIP mode. check your remote for the PIP (Picture in Picture) and go hit it several times the picture should move around on the screen one of them should be the OFF.

How to work pip in vizio tv

PIP or picture in picture works in two ways with the original remote--new sets with this actually have two tuners in them, one for main picture and one for PIP picture, you can change channels in both, swap the PIP to the main picture or even have both side by side.

Sure its got the PIP? what is brand and model number ?

I want to load my tv code from my vizio on my remote for my 321

I used 0178 to program my universal remote. You can also try 10056, 10178,10864,10885,11756,10056,11758, and 11499. Then you can try by dropping the "1" from the front of these codes.
Most good remotes have a programming function if this does not work, where the remote will "learn" the proper code.
The actual button remote codes are as follows:
0 00117
1 00121
2 00119
3 00123
4 00116
5 00120
6 00118

You have to be in 'TV' mode to access the parental settings option. Not sure why. When it asks for the code it's 0000

Cannot get pip function to work. i try to select pip and it says not available, but in my manual it says it is available. its really weird. it is even listed on my remote, but does not work when i push it....

Some models of the TV have PIP as an option, but not installed, and to make it cheaper, they use the same remote and menus, just disable the option, as it's not supported. Best to check the Manufacturer's website to make sure that it does do PIP, not that a related model which has the same user manual does PIP.

Vizio PIP second input source

Can you use a splitter somehow to make the cable be two inputs? That is all I can think of.

Vizio sv420xvt pip

You have to go into the "Parental" settings and change the "Rating Enable" setting to off. Default password is 0000. The PIP will not work if your second source is fed into one of the AV inputs. It must be a composite or digital input. You should see the PIP menus once you change the Parental setting even if there is no other source turned on. This info is not in the book - had to call tech support.

Pip and pop

It sounds like your other TV had 2 tuners which allowed you to watch 2 programs at the same time. You can still watch two programs, but the second one will have to come from a second source. See below for the possible combinations that the PIP/POP feature can be used by this TV.
