Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My kids broke the remote that came with my vizio soundbar, I bought a universal that worked fine for about 6 months and now I can not get a remote to work with my vizio at all. I bought a new remote and it blinked to show it accepted the code but it will not work. My vizio soundbar works if you use the power button the top of it and the volume control, so can you tell me what the problem is?

Hello,

The remotes you have purchased and tried, are universal remotes ? For an item like that the default remote that came with it would work best. I would email Vizio customer support and get a replacement. I had to do the same thing about a year ago. They charged me 10 dollars for a new one.

Post back if you have any question's or comments.
Thank you for choosing Fixya!

I have a Colby 3D sound bar the remote broke on. I have an old universal remote control here. Well its not that old. I just am not sure what brand it is.


Unless you know the brand of your universal there is no way you can contact the manufacturer for a code. Best bet is get another universal knowing that it will work with your sound bar.

Need code for my vizio tv i bought a ihip remote control for my tv


The instructions on letting the Hipi remote to seach for the code that came with my remote are not correct. I used the instructions from HOWTO.COM and printed below. There are two changes from the printed instructions. The first is to push the <TV> button after the <Code Search> button. The second is that the <Enter> button saved the code not the <MUTE> button.

Instructions
1
Turn on the Vizio TV.
2
Aim the Jumbo Universal Remote at the Vizio TV and hold down the "Code Search" button on the remove for roughly 3 to 5 seconds. The LED lights on the Jumbo Universal Remote will come on.
3
Press the "TV" button at the top of the Jumbo Universal Remote.
4
Start pressing the "ON/OFF" button repeatedly until the Vizio TV turns off. (This took only a few tries for my Vizio TV)
5
Press "Enter" on the remote immediately after the Vizio TV turns off to save the code.
6
Test the Jumbo Universal Remote by trying to control the Vizio TV with the remote. If the control doesn't work with the remote, repeat the entire process.

I have a soniq 42"


Ah, the old universal remote isn't so universal anymore is it? Most "universal" remote controls were designed for the old tube type television sets. There are some seriously nice universal remotes for new flat screen TV's, but most of them are pretty pricey. The only reasonable flat screen universal remote that I've found (that actually works) is the Vizio HDTV Universal Remote. It's about $25, and believe it or not ... Wal-Mart carries it in the store.

I have a Vizio 210 soundbar and the remote control is junk! I want the code the woeks on my Comcast universal remote control.


After much research, here is a step-by-step for getting your Vizio Soundbar to work with the Comcast remote using EFC codes (mine is the newer charcoal grey one, works great!)


Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 11144 (2 blinks)

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00169 - Vol Up - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00168 - Vol Down - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00037 - Mute - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00165 - Power - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00164 - Input - Should get 2 blinks


These are optional, I didn't use them:

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00036 - <button to use for TVOL> - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00101 - <button to use for TSHD> - Should get 2 blinks


Then set the volume control on the remote and other settings according to the Remote's manual.


ENJOY!! Hope this helps someone...

Lost a tv remote in a fire. Bought a universal remote but cannot fine a code to program it.


read the directions at the part where it says manually program, you have to do certian functions then push the channel up and down until tv responds then its programmed, this is actually finding the code as you go, instructions will explain it all because ech universal is just a little diff in its manual process.
