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 and reply.

Does the vizio not power on with its own remote, or with the buttons on the tv itself?
The new cable remote isn't going to work right away, it has to be programmed for the tv (and even then may not be compatible). I can help you with that, if needed.

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.
