Question about Vizio M470NV 47 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Remote quits working. Twice cleaning worked. Just stopped working again. Have tried every trick I could find on Internet. Will never buy a cheap POS vizio again but if anyone has answer I would appreciate some help. Also tried universal remote but I became ridiculously tired of trying to find correct codes. You get what you pay for and that is especially true for electronics. Thank you.

Hi, remotes are pretty simple to repair actually-usually there is contamination behind keypad that prevents contact with the circuit board. If you can take apart the remote ( the trickiest part may be the battery terminals that tend to hang up ) then you can use regular rubbing alcohol to clean the gold colored " swirls " behind the keypad-also clean the 'black" dots on the opposite side of the rubber keypad itself, once everything has dried/been wiped dry, reassemble and you should be good to go-laso if your remote "rattles a little?" on the circuit board there are what as know as " ceramic filter" I have never bought one for replacement but have scavenged from other remotes. why I brought up rattling is because if you drop your remote the wrong way or hard enough it can break this little piece ( it is bigger than most of the other components except an I.C. chip) it is usually a pastel blue,green or orange color. And that about covers remote troubles ( assuming the BATTERY CONTACTS aren't corroded which are also cleanable) I hope this helps and good luck. Prodzilla

My tv remote quit working for a awhile then it started working again then it quit again i have tried universal remotes but none will wok my tv


You need to fix this your self, take the batteries out from the remote control, take something sharp like knife, and clean the springs where the batteries are placed, all of them needed to be cleaned. Try to check if this does work, if not then, take a flat screw driver, open the remote cover gently and use a bit of alchol or any solution, to clean the pcb board. Try to fit things back and check the remote again..this should work. We had done to most of remote control..it works...good luck.

My vizio unversal remote stop working for my dynex tv


Check your remote cell. and also then any other remote with your tv. If other remote working with your tv than the tv is ok. Now u need to open the remote manual and read it carefully. If u have no manual then try this trick as the most universal remote require settings. turn your tv on and press the mute button on your mobile for 30 to 45 seconds. As you tv show mute immediately release the mute button. Remote will start work again as it needs to correct code for different models. If no success try too contact the store from where u but it or buy new one

Remote code for Seiki TV 32"


The "try the Samsung codes" suggestions works. I have a ONN (Seiki) LE-24G90. The first Samsung code on the HDTV list (1019) did the trick on my Telus CISCO ST6400 remote.

Most of the time the remote CPU is shorted and the remote is dead.But some time by taking the remote aparts,by cleanning the PCB board with some Q tips dipping in with some rubbing alchahol.Wait like about half hour,put the remote together again tried it,might work again,might not.Not,try website like Remotes.com to buy an exact remote to ur original remote.

The samsung lcd tv remote control has stopped


Hello Jacqui,
When you press the number button or other buttons on the remote do they Feel Stuck? The reason I ask this is every remote I have ever Had always ends up getting something spilt on it.
If It feels like the button are sticking then you could always try cleaning it with a baby wipe or something similar Not a sopping wet cloth.

If the remote seems to be ok you can always check your remote is working. Firstly you will need a mobile phone that has a Camera on it.

With you mobile set it up so that your camera is on. Now what I would like you to do is Point your Samsung TV remote at it and press the buttons. Whilest you are looking at your remote through you phone you will notice that a light appears. This is due to the camera Phone not liking infra-red, ( you can not see this with the naked eye.) So try your power button and you will see what I mean. Now try the other buttons and you will see which buttons are not working and those that are.

If after doing this that certain buttons on the remote are not working full stop what I would suggest you do. Rather then buying another Samsung remote as they can be really expensive.

There is another way. A lot of your friends / family or maybe even yourself may have a Sky Remote lying about not doing anything.or you can buy them from Argos cheap enough.
Please follow the steps below and you will be able to tune your Sky remote To operate you TV

with the sky remote then.

Press TV
RED + SELECT ( hold this down until it flashes twice)
TV
0060

Try the volume if this works then press SELECT to save this to the remote. If not then press TV again then check the volume repeart this step until the volume works then Press SELECT to save the code to your remote.

Hope this helps you out and saves you some money buying an expensive replacement.

Thanks

None of my remote controls will control the volume on my samsung


buy yourself a cheap sky remote or get one off a friend or family member.

on the sky remote:

TV,
RED + SELECT (blinks twice)
TV,
0060
TV,
SELECT.

there you go you can now use this as a telly remote and change your channel over, volume, power, if you press the help button this will also change your source/av's

Remote stops working


Your remote is going bad and the only solution is to buy another one or buy a universal but it will only let you use the basic functions like play,rew,ff , stop and on time recording, I don think it will let you program for recording it or use the menu,a new remote will cost almost as much as a new VCR.The universal is a very inexpensive option.
