Is it the original Vizio remote? If it is, then the button is probably just defective. If it's a universal remote, you might need to try a different program code. If you have another Vizio TV, you could try using it's remote to see if the menu function works on the TV you're having trouble with.

SOURCE: 42 inch LCD Vizio. "no signal"

Just hold down the input button on the right side of the tv. This is the bottom one. So,
With the tv off,
press and hold the bottom button (input)
when the tv turns on, and you see the input menu
release and press the button to put the tv into a mode that works!
Thanks

SOURCE: remote stop working

You should verify if the remote has failed. Contact the support for Vizio, or ask your dealer where you can buy original replacement accessories.

Visio Tech Support:

Most of the time, we've seen the remote fail. Sometimes we are able to service the remote. Sometimes, the IR LED and or the crystal fails in the remotes. If it is more than this, it is impossible to have internal service parts for most remotes. It takes service experience to be able to change these parts.

On rare occasions the IR remote sensor and remote processor area in the set can have a failure. It is best to try another remote to verify this before sending the set for service.

The most common causes of failure of a remote controller is dropping, rough handling, getting food and drink inside, or putting the batteries in backwards.

SOURCE: cable remote AND vizio tv remote will not turn on the tv

We will presume you do not have two bad remotes---the fact you can operate the set manually with the buttons there suggests a problem with the remote receiver====there is a tiny infrared receiver in the front of the set that receives the signals from the remote and sends them inside the set where the correct action is taken.

Make sure if you see it (usually small black area on frame of set) it is not blocked or dirty.

Failing that you may have a bad receiver for the remote---shop repair.

It is possible the remotes are either bad or not compatible to the tv. Recheck the remote type and the batteries to see it that helps.

My Vizio Vp322 will not respond to side input buttons. Also, when you press the menu button, it continually scrolls through the menu


thats almost always caused by a bad main board. Replaceing the main board should solve the issue you can get a replacement main board from www.tvcircuitboards.com

Vizio is famous for having main board issues. If you have replaced the IR board the only two other items it could be is a broken wire from the IR to main or the main board has an issue. Nothing else can stop the remote from working provided the remote is working properly.

Im having similar problem and with my limited knowledge of lcd tvs and the voltages ALL being good except the pwr on or sw on voltage from the main board to the power supply which tells it to switch everything on Im guessing that something is going wrong on the main board. In the condition where it freezes it (the power on V) which switches everything on i get varied voltages such as 2.5 or 3 or (the normal 5v) and then when nothing powers up (blank screen) i read 0v on pwr on voltage but all my other voltages are corect (24v to inverter, 12 v to main board, 5v, etc.) Im guessing from researching this is that there is in improper voltage somewhere in the main board circuit. I have been unable to find it so i may order another board and post back.

Do you have back light when turning on the TV? if you do then just replace the main board should resolve the problem. if you do not have back light, you will need to replace the inverter board(s) depending on your model. The inverter board(s) is located on the left side of the TV facing back of TV. you may have two inverter boards depending on your model. the other is located on the right side of the TV. Both mount vertically.

Vizio service menu


I found this on another answer board. I've only worked on a couple of these sets (whole board replacement in both cases) so I don't know if this is going to work. But it couldn't hoit!

1. Turn The TV off.
2. Press and hold CH + and CH - buttons on the TV simultaneously.
3. Press and release the POWER button on the TV, then release the CH + and CH - buttons.
4. Press MENU button on the remote. The regular menu comes up, and the set displays an "F" (for "factory") in the bottom right corner of the menu.
5. Press and hold the MENU button for few seconds and the Service Menu will be displayed.

There wasn't any mention of how to exit service mode. Hope this works for you!

(Didn't you just love changing coolant on Magnavox PTVs?)
