Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Expert:  Nathan replied 8 months ago.

Unfortunately Chris this extends to the entire tv as well. Vizio is one of the lower quality brands on the market, all of their components including the remote and the tv itself are made from the cheapest parts possible. They are built for a low price point, not for quality or reliability. I can help you find a better quality replacement remote that would be easier to see, if you'd like though.

What other devices do you use with the tv (cable/satellite, dvd, etc)?
