Bought a brand new 32" Vizio. Hooked the TV up but the brand new remote doesn't work. Replaced the batteries thinking the new batteries may be bad. Still nothing! Don't waste your time or money on Vizio brand. You get what you pay for and I was gonna buy Sony but someone talked me out of it. New I should've listened. Not only is the remote junk. The picture is horrible. Bought it 1/17/13 and I promise, it's going back tomorrow!

Hello
Check your remote control handset first for battery and to the sectond for infrared emission. Before replacing the batteries, look for any dust or rust accumulation in the contacts of battery at the battery compartment. Clean it anyway by using a piece of smooth sand paper, and put the fresh batteries in. Then check whether the remote functions well with TV or not. If not check it for infrared emission.
TV and remote control communicates with infrared rays, that emerges from the remote control for our each press of its buttons. These infrared rays cannot be detected by human eyes, but can be detecected by electronic cameras. You can check it with a cellphone which have camera option. Put the cellphone in camera mode, and place the remote control with fresh batteries in, and place it at about one feet away from the camerea lens, with its infrared light emitting face towards it, press each button on the remote control hand set. If there is any infrared rays emits ffom the remote control the camera will sense it and will show its image at its secreen.
If there is no indication of these infrared rays, the remote control has damaged, and you have to buy a new one of same type and number. OK.

VW37L 37 in. LCD HDTV input button wont work


Have you find out if the problem is with your remote control? For instance, you are able to control your TV using a Universal remote control. My 32" Vizio TV had a similar problem, initially thought it was related to my remote control but in fact the TV didn't respond either to an universal remote control of my SAT receiver that I eventually use to just turn on and off the TV. I've found out that the problem was with a little board on the TV located at the left down corner viewed from the front side of the TV and that receives the signal from the remote control. I found the board on ebay for about $5, replace it and the TV responded again to both original and universal remotes.

The volume stuck on max volume and will not respond to remorol or side panels


Some buttons on remote or on control panel is stuck. Look for it and try releasing them. Remove batteries from Remote and try adjustment from control panel. If problem persists, it might need attention by a qualified service technician.

Samsung lcd tv can't find a source, buttons on remote control don't respond, nor buttons on the control panel on the right side of the TV device


consult the owner manual or call Samsung---this set likely has a lockout feature that locks both the remote and the keyboard out.

You might also want to research this by taking the model number and Google key words "remote lockout" etc.

None of Tv controls on side of tv will not work and remote will not work


MAY HAVE A STUCK BUTTON SUGGEST PRESSING EACH BUTTON HARD AND SEE IF ANYTHING CHANGES. THE MAIN MICRO PROCESSOR IN THE TV WILL RESPOND TO BUTTON COMMANDS BEFORE ALL ELSE SO IF THERE IS A STUCK BUTTON NO OTHER BUTTONS WILL WORK AND IT WILL NOT RESPOND TO THE REMOTE.

Power rear door only operates manually


If it still closes properly, power is ok. I do not see a way to turn it off, but there is a 10 amp fuse called ECU IG that powers the controller. The commands are all digital, so very hard to troubleshoot.
