My Vizio 3D TV F30320XX is not responding to my remote (XRVTV-30).

Resolved Question:

My Vizio 3D TV F30320XX is not responding to my remote (XRVTV-30). I changed the batteries and that did not help. I can turn the TV on using the buttons on the side. Any ideas?

Silicon Savant :

Hi there happy to help.

Silicon Savant :

Could you please try the following.....


 


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.

Customer:

I see a blue flash, the IR signal. Thanks for the great tip

Silicon Savant :

OK, you see this flash on all buttons that do not work?

Customer:

I just tried the power, it is not working. None of the other buttons work without power.

Customer:

I'll manually turn on the TV and try some other buttosns.

Silicon Savant :

turn the TV on manually.

Customer:

Back in a flash...

Silicon Savant :

then try the remote buttons.

Silicon Savant :

channel, volume, etc.......

Customer:

The remote is now working. Perhaps I need to hold down the power button for more than a quick press.

Silicon Savant :

ok, great news.

Customer:

The TV came on when I was looking through my camera's view finder.

Silicon Savant :

Hope this helps,
