    One button controls on/off. When I unplug the tv from outlet and plug the tv back in I can turn the tv on with the remote, but I cannot turn the tv off with the remote. All led lights remain amber in color.



    Thanks for any help.

    Same problem! Trying to use a universal remote. Haven't found a remote with Vizio code numbers!




    It turns on... but it doesn't turn off! Tried several time re-entering the code from manuel book help for a minute but them No turning OFF!
    I think it might be the TV and not the remote!


    Please advise

42" Vizio tv. It turns on and turns right back off. It worked perfectly fine until my cat jumped on the remote and now I have no idea what's wrong with it. I think it can be fixed if anyone knows anything...


1. pull battery from remote for 10 seconds. This will force reboot of remote. test, if fail move ahead,



2. do a main reset on Tv,, pull power plug from power source,, wait 10 seconds, reconnect, turn on!, fail continue



3. ? when you turn on TV is the stand by led light amber, when you turn on LED\'s does it start to change color , but standby light is still on? if test positive with findings issue should be your motherboard or even power board but it should be Mo/Bo..

Vizio remote won't control tv


I just had the same problem. I call Vizio and this is what they had me do that did fix the problem.
1. Unplug the TV
2. Hold down the power button on the TV for 30 seconds (yes, with it unplugged and do not plug it back in yet.)
3. Take the batteries out of the remote.
4. Press each button remote twice to ensure that they bounce back and are not stuck.
5. Place new batteries into the remote.
6. Plug the TV back in. Not into a power strip if possible. ( I did not have an available outlet so I used a power strip.)
7. Try turning the TV on using the remote. (My TV turned on. All of the functions worked - problem fixed.)
Hope that this helps.

the capacitors on the power board would cause the issues you are having. If you look at the capacitors and they look swollen , then they are probably bad.

I went to turn on my Vizio and the scrren was


Do you have back light when turning on the TV? if you do then just replace the main board should resolve the problem. if you do not have back light, you will need to replace the inverter board(s) depending on your model. The inverter board(s) is located on the left side of the TV facing back of TV. you may have two inverter boards depending on your model. the other is located on the right side of the TV. Both mount vertically.
