Assuming you have confirmed that the batteries are good, then the remote is likely dead. Just make sure that the battery contacts on the remote are making good contact with the batteries. Otherwise, if the TV is still under warranty, then you can call Vizio at the number below to get it replaced:

(800)(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr />
If it's not under warranty, then you can purchase a replacement remote from the link below:

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
