    I have the same problem. Along with it, the digital channels don't come in at all, just a blue screen. 3 months ago was the first time this happened. We unplugged the tv for a minute and when we powered the tv up it worked like original. Now unplugging it does not work at all. Any other ideas?

    I'm having the exact same problem on my 37 in. Unplugging the unit did not help me. Aside from not buying a Vizio, any suggestions would be appreciated.

    We the same issue. Just got the TV and the remote will not operate the channels.

    I can't change the channel using the channel + or - button on the remote or on the T.V. itself. I can change the channel when I punch in the correct number for the channel though.

Press the menu button in the middle of your remote and scroll over to the middle tab that's labled "TV" and then scroll down to "auto search". click on this option by pressing the right arrow key on your remote so that your T.V. and "re-scan for channels. It might take awile. I took me about 5 minutes but for majority of the time it was stuck on 45% while it was scanning.

Power off the set. Unplug it and wait about 5 minutes, Hold the power button on the set for 30 seconds and then plug the TV back in. It should work fine now.
This is the TV reset process, your custom settings will still be there.

Try unplugging the set for a couple of minutes then plug it back in and do a auto program from your menu. that should do the trick

I LOST MY REMOTE TO MY 39INC VIZIO FLAT SCREEN T.V. MODEL D390-BO HOW DO I CHANGE CHANNELS AND ADJUST VOLUME MANUALLY?


Unfortunately, the Vizio D390-B0 only has a Power and Input button on the TV. You need a replacement remote (XRT020) or a universal remote with the code for Vizio that was programmed 6 months after the TV was released. The D390-B0 documentation suggests that the TV was released in 2014.

I hope this helps.

We have misplaced our remote to vizio smart tv. I ordered new one but it will not be here for another month. Can I change channels without remote. We are stuck on hallmark channel :(


On some of the Vizio Smart TVs, there are volume and channel buttons along the side panel. They are pretty well concealed, but there are there. If you can give me a model number, I can be more specific.

MMy Vizio 32" tv only gets 16 channels


If your Vizio TV has a built-in HD converter, 16 channels is what you can expect. If the channels are identified with decimals such as 10.1, 10.2, etc. they are HD. The cable connection you refer to must be connected to an antenna, otherwise you would have a cable box and a monthly bill from some cable company

Have new E370VL hooked up to Dish Network via coax. The picture jumps/blips? Connections are tight. Help.


This can happen when there is radio interference near the coaxial cables. Sometimes the interference is behind walls. The solution is to try a different combination of modulation and channel than what the DISH receiver is current set.

The DISH menu screen for this setting is Menu-6-1-5. With dual-tuner receivers, typically "TV 1 Out" is the TV that is connected in the same room as the receiver is located. "TV 2 Out" is the tuner that is fed to the remote TV via backfed coaxial signal.

All that needs to be done is to change the channel and mode going to the effected TV to something different. If your channel/mode is currently set to Air/60, try changing it to Cable/73. When you change the mode/channel in the DISH receiver, you need to set the remote TV to the same mode and channel.

Keep in mind that with some TV companies like VIZIO, they call their "Air" mode "Antenna". With VIZIO's the TV must be set on TV input and then go into the Menu to the Settings, Tuner Settings. Change mode type to match what you are trying on the DISH receiver, exit the VIZIO menu and manually enter the channel number.

Eventually with trial and error, you will find a mode/channel combination that isn't effected by your particular environmental interference.

First - connect DVD player preferably to the same input (unless you are using RF connector) and make sure that same issue does happens while you are watching movies. If it does - main board in your TV have to be replaced. If it does not - it still cable signal problem.

Digital tuner


You may want to try another channel auto scan after it starts working. The most likely cause is the main signal board or a slow pwer supply line to it

The main board is bad. I have seen a lot of TV has the same problem like you have. Replace main board will fix it. If you bought these TV from Costco and less than 2 years then they all still under warranty.
