How do i get out of pip mode


On most sets you hit the same pip button that you used to get in to get out. If that does not do it, look for an exit button.

Also check with tv manual to see if set has a reset button for factory defaults.

Maybe the pip button on remote is not working. To test remote place by radio on 600 on AM dial and put remote right on top of radio and hit any suspect button. U should hear a beep with each and every button. If a button pressed does not result in a beep, that part of the remote is no good.

I cant get the menu to leave the screen. I dont know what button to push.


Hitting the menu button again will clear this off most of the time. Make sure you are using the correct remote. If it is the cable menu use the remote that came with the cable box. If it is the tv menu uses the original television remote control. This can also be taken care of with the buttons on the television itself. Should be a menu button on the side or bottom.

How do you get the picture in picture to work? What two sources can you use, a cable box and what?


The Picture in Picture (PIP) on VIZIO televisions works on multiple input sources. This means you have to have signal or a device connected to more than one input on the television and have both inputs selected to display the information going to them. Here is an example. Let's say you have an HD cable box connected to your television and you would like to have more than one channel displayed on the screen in order to keep an eye on both football games at the same time. With one device connected that's not going to work out the way our TV functions. What you want to do is get a coaxial splitter and two extra coaxial cables; these can be found anywhere home theater equipment is sold. Then follow these steps.

1. Turn off both your cable box and television.

2. Take the coaxial cable that comes OUT from the wall and connects to the IN of your cable box and disconnect it.

3. Connect that cable to the IN on your coaxial splitter.

4. Connect your two extra coaxial cables to the OUTs on your coaxial splitter. We will call them cable 1 and Cable 2, just because.

5. Connect cable 1 directly to the DTV/TV input on your television.

6. Connect Cable 2 directly to the IN on your cable box, this will be the same connection you removed it from in step #2. Your HD cable box should still be connected to your television with either an HDMI cable or Component cables (Identified by their Green, Red, Blue colors for video and Red and White cables for audio.)

7. Power on both the cable box and your television. Using the INPUT button on your VIZIO remote select the input connection where your cable box is located your cable box picture should come up on the Main screen.

8. Press the PIP button on your VIZIO remote to bring up the small box in the corner. Press the PIP input button until you select the TV input and you should be ready to go. You may need to perform a channel scan with your TV tuner to locate all available channels before you do this step. In order to understand better how to perform a channel scan please check under the F.A.Q.s in the discussion area of your particular model television.

In order to change channels in the small screen use the PIP CH - and + buttons located near the bottom of the remote. You can swap picture in the Main and Sub screens using the swap button and swap which screen will sound off its audio by using the AUDIO button. You might notice an X next to some of the selections in the INPUT and PIP INPUT screens when you have PIP activated. That means that input selection is unavailable and cannot be used. For example, if you have the input TV selected on your main screen then if you press the PIP INPUT button and bring up that input menu you will see X's next to the TV and AV selections. The X's mean that when you have TV on the main screen you won't be able to use TV or AV on the small screen. Instead you would need to use any of the input selections that do not have an X attached to them.

No really , my Wife was pushing buttons on either the att cable remote or the tv remote last night , was distracted by grandkids and now we have no sound. Only the remotes were touched nothing else.


Shot in the dark here but you might try finding a button labeled SAP. This is secondary audio programming which transmits audio in spanish on some channels. She might have accidentally hit that.

My grandson got hold of the tv remote and turned the pip feature on. we cannot turn it off. help!


Hey there..I had a PIP problem for the last 6 weeks and just solved it with this tip. The solution was in front of me all the time.

Hit the set up button on the TV.
You'll see options to change the language. The last option is to put the TV in "Demo Mode."
Put the TV in Demo mode, when the first screen appears, "Welcome to...." the PIP will disappear.
Hit exit before the screen moves to the "Menu." If you miss it, watch the demo once--it will restart--and hit the exit button the next time you see the "Welcome to" message.

I just did this and it worked for me - i hope it works for you

selections. The X's mean that when you have TV on the main screen you
wont be able to use TV or AV on the small screen. Instead you would need to use any of the input selections that do not have an X attached to them. PIP like this is not possible using any dish or satellite broadcasting companies as all of their signals must go through their boxes to be decoded. The televisions internal tuner can not handle those signals and turn them into anything watchable. If you are using one of these companies contact them to see if they offer a set top box that does PIP on its own and doesn't need the televisions help to accomplish it.

Look for a "PIP" (Picture In Picture) button on the remote or in the TV's menu. I suspect that it has been pushed but there is not a second source to view. That would explain the smaller version in the corner.
