    My remote control developed the same problem today. Cannot get action from down channels or down volume. Also, no action on the power, 1,2,3 buttons. Please let me know of any solutions other than purchasing a replacement RC from Viewsonic. Universal controls do not work with their infrared signals.

    mine stopped working today.....searched viewsonic's web site for a new one couldent find one.... you'd think they would offer replacement remotes.

  • viewsonicfan Oct 25, 2008

    Same problems just happened to me...all of a sudden: vol. can only turn up, not down; mute button doesn't work; on/off button doesn't work.

    Thanks to Solution 3. My remote now works! I held the v chip down and power at the same time. Everything works well. It's unfortunate that when you call Viewsonic, they have no troubleshooting help and only suggest buying a new one.

    Viewsonic remote model RC00070P will not respond at all. I have attempted the battery rest reset and the hold down power and v-chip.... How long are we supposed to hold down the two buttons before anything happens?

Okay here's the fix.
Remove batteries. Re-install them wrong side in! Don't panic.
Reverse the direction of both the battery cells and install. Press "Power" button a couple of times and a few other buttons a few times. Then remove batteries and re-install the right side in.

    amazing...after trying all other "fixes", the reversing of the battery worked!

  • drpatti Sep 03, 2011

    Yay! I have tried so many things, including trying about 40 different codes to program my DirecTV remote to my ViewSonic TV. The reversing of the batteries really does work! Thank you!

ViewSonic remote control RC00070P

I have had the same problem for several months. I have a few problems and a few fixes.

Problems: Volume won't go down, Mute button doesn't work, Power button doesn't work.

Fixes: Hold the volume up "+" button then press the down "-" button at the same time while releasing the up "+" button. Volume should decrease.

Power: Hold the "V-Chip" button down and press the "Power" button at the same time. Then release both.

After I did both of these things, my remote now works fine. I have no idea what the real problem is, but if all else fails, I'll just get off the couch.

I solved it...After weeks of suffering,(you know how it feels without the RC).
On/Off switch
Press Power button & Info button the same time to toggle on/off
Press Vol"-" & the "down"(inverted triangle button) the same time

Good Luck. Fellow Viewsonic owners!!!

Many times on old remotes, dirt accumulates on the inside or just some particles get into the inside of the remote and the buttons will not make contact. I have repaired this remote as well as others by cleaning. First the remote has to be opened, and this is the hard part. It is snap fit together and you have to work a screwdriver or other sharp object into the side between the halves. There are no screws used in this remote. I put a screwdriver into the only opening I could find - the LED at the end and accidentally pushed one of the LED (the clear bulb) leads off the circuit board that I then needed to resolder. After the remote is apart, just pop off the circuit board and clean the side of the board that makes contact with the buttons and then the backsides of all the buttons with rubbing alcohol (clean the button fronts if you like to look at clean buttons). Make sure both leads to the LED are soldered. On my remote, a small piece of dirt came out. Reverse the process to reassemble.

We installed a new adapter on a Comcast service for my 2nd TV in our bedroom.. Their remote is not in sync with our Viewsonic so I've to use the VS-remote. At first, power button was working, then it died out. Changed the batteries, the power still didn't work. I read the instructions here to install batteries in reverse and tried the buttons, of course it won't operate. I put them back again in proper sequence "voila great idea Amigo" . It worked and I can operate the power button again.

We tried it (removing the batteries) it didn't help.

One day, my report stopped working.  I couldn't turn on the tv, change channels, or change the volume.  I changed the batteries twice.  I then pulled out the batteries for 5 minutes and put them back in.  It worked!  Thanks for the solution.

    A solution to one mode of failure of a Viewsonic remote RC00070P

    The numeric pad for channel change failed. The above procedures did not work.

    Took the remote apart starting with a knife and then a flat blade screw driver.

    Cleaned the interior and then cleaned – what appeared to be a very small amount of black residue – from some of the contacts with Q-tip dipped in 99% isopropanol. This was worse on the contact corresponding to numeral 3 which was the first contact to fail. Then cleaned all the contacts thoroughly in the same way.

    The remote now works.


Pull the batteries out and let it sit for 5 min. Replace batteries. Worked for me

My viewsonic keeps changing channels which makes it impossible to use. We've unplugged it and everything. once you power it on, thats all it does. it continueusly changes channels. please help

The first thing to try is to see if a button is stuck on the remote or on the TV.
Remove the batteries on the remote and see if that helps. If it fixes the problem, you'll need to replace the remote.
If that doesn't help, look close at the buttons on the TV to see if one is jammed on. If changing channels continually up, then check the channel up button on the TV, if down then check the down button.
Worst case, you might have to take the back off the TV and unplug the cable feeding the external button panel on the TV and only use the Remote (for safety, rememeber to unplug the TV while doing any work on it).

Remote control work to change channel but, will not work to increase or decrease the volume

Is that a universal remote? If so then probably you just haven't found the appropriate code for using with your TV.

If it is the original remote, then the problem is more complex and you may have to change main board.

RC00070P remote has stopped working

Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera’s Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera’s screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

You can get remote directly from Viewsonic, they are about $25 + shipping.
