Replaced the TV , same problem. Directv say their HD dvr receiver is not at fault. Switched Hdmi cables. Still the same problem.

I was having the same issue. I found this on Fixya and it seems to have worked.

Okay I just called and found this out. I have the 32 inch vizio hd flat screen. My problem with weak and fluctuating volume, was that I have a cable box. Go into menu, then audio and under the advanced audio section you will see srs trusurround HD and srs trusurround. Basically this function automatically adjusts volume levels for satelites and whatnot. But because cable boxes automatically have this feature you could just turn off the srs trusurround. Hopefully that should help you.

Visio TV freezing and then rebooting


If you can get into the setup program, try doing a factory reset to get back to the default setup settings. This may cause you to lose apps that you have added to the set, however, but that's better than having to buy a whole new set. You also may want to see if there are any updates for the set from Visio if you don't have it set up to download and install them automatically already.

Just bought a vizio tv Model #E470VLE, my dish remote will not control the mute or volume buttons now, how do I get it to do that?


Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. It sounds like you are going to need to readdress your DISH remote to your new Vizio TV. We have a few different codes for each of our different models of remotes. You will be able to locate the model number of your remote on the back of the remote at the top usually a two to three digit number with a decimal point. I will list here for you the best codes for Vizio TVs as well as the instructions for addressing the remote to your TV. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns feel free to email directly at [email protected]

Codes for Vizio TVs
3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.4 IR remotes - 505, 671, 627 and 766.
5.0, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 IR remotes - 627, 505, 506, 457, 111 and 520
4.0 and 4.4 IR/UHF remotes - 505, 627, 555 and 766
6.0, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4 IR/UHF remotes - 627, 505, 678, 825, 520 and 766
20.0 IR and 21.0 IR/UHF remotes - 505, 598, 627 and 773

Instructions for addressing your remote to your TV.
  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the TV mode button until all other mode buttons light up red.
  3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
  4. Press the pound(#) button once. Note: The LED will flash three times.
  5. Test functionality with the TV.
  6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

My Visio 50" Plasma Model# VP504FHDTV10A was purchased in June of 2008. Recently when I try to turn it on, it makes a click sound and then the Visio emblem turns a dull amber color and the TV will not turn...


I just solved this kind of problem with my VIZIO VP504FHDTV10A. It was main power supply that went bad. You need to open back panel cover and right in the middle you will see two powersupply boards(subpower board(smaller) and big main powersupply board). Just get board part/model # and search it on eBay(what I did). It was approx. $100. Good luck.

My Visio turns itself off and on when I change to one channel


I had the same problem. Tech support told me to turn the tv off, then unplug it. Then hold the power button (on the tv - on the bottom of left side) in for 30 seconds and try again. This did solve my problem.

Buzzing noise when turning on the volume.


Only recourse is to replace the main cba. I would probably try ShopJimmy.com for the module because "IF" you could get one from Visio it would be anywhere between $200 - 300.

Code for Vizio tv


I contacted Vizio the other day. They tell me that they use the same generic codes as LG. I have Suddenlink Cable, formerly Charter, so I still use the Charter remote. My remote only needed 3 digits and I have noticed that many need 4 or 5. I can tell you that the LG code worked for my tv. I can power on/off, volume, and change the channel. All other functions require the manufacture's remote. The code I used is 005. There was also 004 but that did not work on my tv. Hope this helps someone!
