TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi there happy to help.
first of all your manual can be downloaded for free here......
Give me a minute to find what you need and look things over here......
ok. I just read the stuff in the left columm. Thank you.
are you all set here?
Or do you need further assistance with this?
Let me know, otherwise please don't forget to ACCEPT if I helped you today.
yes you still need help?
ok here's how the TV works....if connected to cable via HDMI 1 input, all you have to do is switch the TV to this input and then use the cable remote to change channels, not the TV remote.
is this the answer?
Do you need further explanation?
my question was how do i get the tv remote to work ..... becuz it down not work right now
ok, try this with the remote.........
it does not work right now
Get your cell phone and turn on the camera function.
Point your remote at the phone and press buttons while watching through the phone/camera's screen.
If the remote is doing what it is supposed to you will see flashes in the phone's screen from the IR light on
the front of the remote.
Let me know the results and we'll go from there.
i dont see any lights
on my cell phone camera screen
am i supposed to read my email for instructions? or this is the place where we converes?
we converse here, you are doing fine.....
one minute please, i need to take a closer look at this remote....
ok, if you don't see lights, the remote is not working. Triple check the batteries. Otherwise, return it for a replacement and then see my advise above about switching inputs.
batter is the first thing I checked. itz fully charged
OK, the remote is the problem here.
switching inputs. where do I switch input? from the vizio? or the cable company remote
Switch input from the TV remote.
Swtch channels from the cable remote.
please don't forget to ACCEPT if I helped you today.
If the vizio remote was working, switching would not be a problem.
If you were able to switch inputs on the TV you could use your cable remote and everything would be fine. I can't say why the new remote quit working.
It should not have.
where do I am the vizio remote IR light? at the lens?
what do you mean "switch inputs from the tv"? I change channels from the cable remote. it that what you mean?
yes. at the front of the remote.
Yes ypou switch from HDMI 1, 2, etc....from the TV remote.
i don't know how to switch the input from the cable remote. i have to do it now from the tv itself .... becuz the vizio remote does not work at all now.
If you can do this from the TV. Most TVs you need the remote for the TV to do this. This would mean you would have to replace the TV remote before continuing here.
The side of your TV has this control as well.
Just found that.
thank you for trying to help me. I tried the cable remote and the bluray dvd player remotes, aimed them at the cell phone camera screen and i don't see any lights on my cell phone.
Page 23 of manual.
so base on what you told me, those remotes are not supposed to be working ... but they are.
pressing buttons on the remotes?
yes, pressing all kinds of buttons. nothing.
i'm satisfied you can not help me any more.
can you try a different phone or a digital camera?
i'm sure the remote works. itz just that i can not get it up an running. i'll try and get it replaced
once you have a TV remote that works you sould be all set here.
i tried on a Pantech, Samsung and iPhone
on any remotes?
i tried all 3 remotes
on all 3 phones
oh well, thank you.
do they have clear LEDs on the front of them?
all or any of the remotes?
the cell phones?
or the remotes?

the cable and dvd have clear
the vizio remote has dark lens
do they work on the Cable and DVD player?
my bad. i checked again. the lights on the cable and dvd remotes work on the cell
but i don't seen any lights on the tv remote
phew, you really had me stumped there.....
