Look up the model number of the tv. Then try this link to the user manual.

This is likely due to heat expansion (turned on) and contraction (turned off).

I have a solution but it is too much info for this tiny screen they have, and there is no support for photos1.gif. So, unfortunetly I have to send you to my photobucket account where I posted scanned pictures1.gif of the "Acual Manual" I hope the website doesn't get banned. Here are the five pages you'll need to set up your giant remote:

SOURCE: VIZIO vx37l tv remote control code for cox tv remote

0178 will work but you have to keep the set-up button pressed down for more than a few seconds after you press TV on your cox remote. (You will see the tv button light up 2 or 3 times after pressing it and holding the set-up button down)

Here are the instructions for auto code search from the Omnitech manual:
Automatic Search
There is another way to set up your controller, that does not use the brand code lists. You can let your
controller search through all of its available codes automatically in order to set the connection to the
target device. To do this, follow these steps:
1.Turn on the target device.
2.Point the controller at the target device and press and hold the Code Search button for around 3
seconds, until the LED light stays red.
3.Next select the type of device the target unit is by using the Cable/TV/VCR/DVD/Sat Buttons (i.e. if
it is a TV that you are trying to control, press the TV button). The LED light should then blink once,
then stay red.
4.Press the On/Off button on the controller slowly and repeatedly until the device you are trying to
connect with turns off. (Note: the LED light will blink each time you press the On/Off button). When
this happens, press the ENTER button in order to store the code and the LED light will turn off.

SOURCE: vizio and the directv dvr

Vizio recommends using code 11758 or 10178 for Cable/Satellite universal remotes that use five digits such as DirecTV. For four digit Cable/Satellite universal remotes , use 1758 or 0178. For three digit Cable/Satellite universal remotes, such as Dish or Echostar, use 627. These codes typically make the Power, Volume and Mute functions work.

Am i able to use a Roku express with the Vizio 1080p?


From what I've read, Vizio 1080P has wifi. So if you have an internet connection and wireless router, you should be good to go.

I have a Vizio E241I-A1 Smart Tv that I am trying to program with a RCA universal remote RCRN03BR


You may have to use the correct Vizio remote to access those "smart" functions. Universal remotes are not always capable of doing this. No doubt this is explained in the instructions for your RCA RCRN03BR remote.

Vizio m550nv backlight won't work


This TV comes with a remote that connects to the TV via Bluetooth. It remembers which equipment is connected to the various inputs, and automatically changes the controls to match the input equipment - really nice! I found that it will control all my equipment, and since it works via bluetooth, you don't have to have direct line-of-sight to the TV. Wish that the bluetooth part worked for my satellite equipement too! Programmable remotes will operate this TV, but depending on how old they are, they may not be able to hit all the features of the tv - our older directv remotes will operate the basic features, but only the newer models will change the input source - so you may want to use the remote that came with the TV. We have smaller kids, and wanted to limit their use of the tv remote, because it has a slide-out keyboard similar to those on some cell phones to make posting to facebook (one of the apps that comes on the tv) easy. Since our youngest is 5, we thought it might be best to keep that remote out of harm's way.

The Netflix app on my vizio svt422xvt (one of the Vizios with VIA internet & wifi built-in) won't connect to Netflix. It directs me to the Netflix website for help, but Netflix help tells me to...


I had the same problem with my Vizio XVT473SV. I couldn't find the Netflix Activation Code. When I clicked on the Netflix App, the TV would ask me if I wanted to connect to Netflix, then it would ask me if I was a Netflix member. After clicking yes to both, it would tell me it couldn't connect to the Netflix server, check with Netflix.com/tvhelp. After a couple hours of troubleshooting, the solution was......your first use of the Netflix App has to be via the Ethernet Port/Cable. This will give you a screen with the Activation Code, after you activate the code in your Netflix account, you can go back to using WiFi on your Vizio TV to connect to Netflix. Step by step instructions are...
1) Exit the Vizio Netflix App.
2) Physically connect an Ethernet cable to your broadband (just temporarily)
3) Check to make sure the Vizio is using the Ethernet port and not your WiFi (Apps Button - HDTV Settings - Network...may have to reboot the TV to get Ethernet port connection)
4) Start the Vizio Netflix App
5) Click OK to start the Netflix App
6) You should now see a different screen that gives you the Netflix Activation Code.
7) On your Computer, Login in to Netflix,
8) Click on "Your Account & Help" link on upper right corner
9) Scroll down to Watching Instantly on your TV or Computer section
10) Click on Activate a Netflix Ready Device
11) Enter the Activation Code shown on your Vizio TV and click Activate
12) Once your Netflix account (on your computer) shows it is active, your Vizio TV will automatically log in. You should see your Instant Queue.
13) Exit the Netflix App, unplug the Ethernet cable, Turn Off your Vizio TV.
14) After 20 seconds or so (remember the TV is software driven), turn the TV back on and your WiFi should connect again.
15) Use your Netflix App and this time it should automatically connect via WiFi
note: just make sure that your wireless DSL/Cable Modem or Wireless Router is not blocking your WiFi connection request from the Vizio. You can check the connection status in the modem/router or in the Vizio in the HDTV Settings - Network.
