    I have the same problem! I just bought the 42' Vizio plasma two months ago and last night the channels wouldn't change on the remote or the side of the tv unless you inputed the channel you want in the remote.

    Same problem on a 37 inch lcd. At first I could unplug it for a few minutes and it would work when turned back on. Now this trick doesn't work.

For the past 3 months I have been unpluging the vizio for a few minutes and that would work. It was annoying. Now I am annoyed because unplugging it does not reset it or fix the issue.

Had the same problem, found you have to reprogram the channels to your tv, just go to menu and the auto channel program will flip the channels automatically, when its finished you should be able to change the channels without having to punch in the number!

Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes and then doing an auto channel search through the menu button. That has solved my problem, at least for the time being.

Comcast put in a new hd box and now we cant get the remote to work to change the channel we have to trun off at tv on the side


I'm assuming you got a new remote with the cable/sat box. These remotes can act as universal remotes but must have a code input that will operate your particular brand of TV. This should allow for turning the TV on and off and controlling the volume if you are using the TV speakers. You should also check that the correct button has been pushed on the remote to operate the channel selection on your cable/sat box. There should have been a user manual given to you with the new cable/sat box that will detail the process for finding and inputting the code and other troubleshooting. You may also find answers on the cable/sat provider's website. Good luck.

How to program a vizio tv without a remote vizio


Upon first start you should be prompted. If not, you will find a series of buttons on the TV itself; power,channel up down, volume up/down, input and menu. Hit the menu button and the menu will pop up. Scroll up and down with channel button, select and controls are the volume. either that or you can get a Samsung phone that has an app built into it called watch on, which has a universal remote that works for virtually everything. Happy surfing.

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.

Won't channel up and down, stuck in input mode


Good morning Cheri
try restarting the tv, just disconnect all electricity for 30-60 sec.
connect again. If that does not work, Try set- up on the menu, if you get the apparatus to obey you and leave the input mode.
If that does not work I always restart the router and "exchange"box,
enjoy your day

Tv won't switch to "tv"


Your T.V. is programmed to store the last input you've selected. You have to manually switch it back to your T.V. channel input after each time you switch it to HDMI or any other input even when you turn it off. The "Source" or "Input" button on your original T.V. remote will change this.

I have lost my remote and the kids pushed the side buttons on the TV to raise the volume but instead changed the channel. Now I can't get back to the channel that works with my AT&T uverse box.


Hi,

Instead of changing the channels, press the "INPUT" button on the side of the TV slowly and repeatedly. The TV will cycle through all of the available external inputs one of which will be for your Uverse box. If this doesn't work, try switching to channel 3 or 4. I can't say which will be correct as it depends how the equipment is setup.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

CHANGE CHANNELS WITH THE CONTROL


Run a channel scan on the DTV and/or TV input depending on what one your not getting channels on. This will solve your issue.

Change the input on the unit to the DTV or TV input. Press the menu button on the remote. Navigate to the tuner DTV or TV tuner setup menu. Go down to auto search using the down arrow. go right when with auto search selected. This may take a few minutes but you should have all the channels back after the scan.
