Take the remote to a Best Buy in your area ( if you have one ) an see if it works on another Vizio set. If it does, then your set will have have to go in for repair.

Remmote stop to work


If a battery change does not restore operation, it is likely that the remote has failed. As for finding a code, you have it backwards. The codes are stored in the remote. If you obtain a replacement universal remote, follow the directions to find a code for your Vizio TV.

My vizio remote control does not work with my tv what can I do


If it came with the TV, then there might be a problem. First check if you have the batteries in the right position, we all make small mistakes. If it doesnt work then there might be a problem with the remote, shake it kinda so you can hear if anythings broken. If it doesnt work return it within your time period and pick up another, because it could also be the TV IR. ;)

Remote stop working


You should verify if the remote has failed. Contact the support for Vizio, or ask your dealer where you can buy original replacement accessories.

Visio Tech Support:
http://www.vizio.com/support.aspx?id=1586

Most of the time, we've seen the remote fail. Sometimes we are able to service the remote. Sometimes, the IR LED and or the crystal fails in the remotes. If it is more than this, it is impossible to have internal service parts for most remotes. It takes service experience to be able to change these parts.

On rare occasions the IR remote sensor and remote processor area in the set can have a failure. It is best to try another remote to verify this before sending the set for service.

The most common causes of failure of a remote controller is dropping, rough handling, getting food and drink inside, or putting the batteries in backwards.

Vizio remote control not working


Hi, I had the same problem. My vizio remote for my 42 inch 2 month old vizio also seemed to stop working. Here's what I did: My vizio remote (like most remote's nowadays) was designed for multiple components (tv, dvd, vcr, etc). All you need to do to make the remote work again is set it back to tv. Now, the confusing thing about vizio remotes is that they actually have TWO places where you can switch the remote to the appliance you want to control. One is on top of the remote, the other is on the BOTTOM. Switch it back to TV using the BOTTOM. My remote had stopped working because I had inadvently switched it to another component on the BOTTOM component switch.

Try a new Remote control, and if that doesn't fix the problem, it may be a remote sensor in the set. Hope this helps. Have a great weekend

Vizio 50 inch plasma -- remote not working


You can also try to take out the batteries and push all of the buttons with the batteries out of the remote. Then put the batteries back in and push the power button on the remote. If this doesnt work press the two TV buttons at the same time and the remote should be fine.
