Question about Vizio Televison & Video

1 Answer

The volume is not working on my vizio tv. I tried manually and with the remote. I can press the volume button one time up and it will go up all the way, I can press it one time down and it goes all the way down to 0. Manually does nothing at all. So I can watch tv at extremely loud full volume or no sound at all...very aggravating.

SOURCE: Vizio VX32L No Display and Can't Power Off

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

SOURCE: Panasonic remote and volume/channel buttons do not work

My son put a penny in the SD card slot of my Pansonic flat screen tv. I finally got the penny out but now the volume and tv controls do not work. I can change the channels through my cable box but that is it. The volume does not work on my cable remote or the flatscreen. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?? Thanks, Josh

Did you have any luck? My LG is stuck in demo mode too. Menu button doesn't work, and keylock was on as default so I can't use the buttons on the TV itself.

SOURCE: VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.

I had a similar problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

HOW I FIXED MINE: I ordered a new "main PCB" from (you can also use This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine.I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

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.

Turn on the Vizio TV.
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.
Press the "TV" button at the top of the Jumbo Universal Remote.
Start pressing the "ON/OFF" button repeatedly until the Vizio TV turns off. (This took only a few tries for my Vizio TV)
Press "Enter" on the remote immediately after the Vizio TV turns off to save the code.
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.

Code for TV/Video button on Dish remote will not change Vizio tv to other components.

Hi dclapper222, not all codes give our remotes full functionality; though we do have some other codes we can try!

A few of the codes for a Vizio TV that we have are 627, 66, 505, 222, 678, 232, and 458. You can find more codes or instructions at this link: I have outlined the steps below to program your remote to your TV.

Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #. The TV button should flash 3 times.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.
5.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.

Hope that helped! Let me know here if you have any other questions!

Bought a vizio tv works good it but the volume control is real hard to get it to pick up every thing else works ok. It has the right code in.

Hey sherryg98, it sounds like you have a right code, but may not be a code to give full functionality as there are many codes for a Vizio TV.

You can check out this link for more info on codes:

Some codes you can try are 627, 766, 505, 006, 232, 458, 500, 670, 678. Depending on the model of your remote there may be different codes available. I've given the steps to address a remote below just in case.

Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #. The TV button should flash 3 times.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.

My friend has a Vizio model E470VA and Dish network. But the Dish remote will not control the volume / mute on the tv reliability. The on/off button works perfectly. Remote has been replaced also...

Hello, my name is Becki Barned, and I am with Dish Network customer service. To program the remote to a Vizio tv, there are a couple approaches that you may take. First is, follow this link: which walks you through it. Or do these steps: 1. Hold down the TV mode button until all mode buttons at the top of the remote light up, then release. 2. Punch in the code 505. 3. Press the pound (#) button on the keypad. Use either of these, and that remote will work great! Just make sure after you get the volume working, that you press the SAT button on the remote! If you have any other questions, blog back, or you can find us on Twitter!!!!

Vur9 remote only controls the volume and nothing else, cant change channels or anything any suggestions?

Press the TV button on the lower right (not the upper right) to tell the remote to control the TV.

The upper buttons are the Input Selector buttons. The lower buttons are the Device Control Selector buttons.

I had this same problem until this dawned on me.

Vizio 50 inch plasma -- remote not working

You can also try to take out the batteries and push all of the buttons with the batteries out of the remote. Then put the batteries back in and push the power button on the remote. If this doesnt work press the two TV buttons at the same time and the remote should be fine.
