Where do I find the model #?
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Usually would be on the back cover .

But before you do that , another question ;

How do you get your tv channels , is it a cable box ,satellite receiver etc. ?

Hello again

O.k then this is one of those vizio that has a single button for power /input only on the rear lower left side and no other functions without a remote.

Was asking about a cable box as it may have been possible to program that remote for the TV's volume and power but that is out .

In that case the other local option would be a $10 universal remote , just make sure it says vizio on the box .

Finally the last option and a toy for Fido would be the original XRT010 /XRT020 (same thing) that you can get at this link for $5;

Never mind that your model is not listed there they just did not list all the models .

If that answers your question please do not forget to rate by clicking on the 5-star icon at the top, then click on Submit so i get paid for my time helping you or you can use the reply button before or after rating if you have other questions , thank you .
