On the remote, press the "MENU" button to go to the "Menu" screen, select "TV Settings" with the arrow keys, and press the "OK" button. Then go to "Device Setup" and press "OK". Go to "Input Source" and press the arrow keys until "Antenna" appears, then press "OK".

Select the "Tuner" option and press "OK". You may see an option to scan channels. Select it and press "OK". The TV will scan both analog and digital channels and can take an hour to scan all. Just wait and watch the "Found channel" count. If it does not increment, your antenna may be bad or not connected correctly.

The Vizio tuner is good enough to find over 14 digital channels with a cheap $10 flat digital antenna taped to my window.

hi,
IT normally happens after factory reset is done. You need to reprogram the channels. Try the auto program (AUTO TUNING) Process.

  1. On your remote commander " Press HOME or MENU button"
  2. Scroll down to " SETTINGS or SET-UP"
  3. Then to "CHANNEL SET-UP"
  4. Select " AUTO PROGRAM " To Auto program your LCD TV and it's done..

    SOURCE: can't get the tv/input button to work on dish

    Hi there! This is Kimberly Escobar with Dish Network. Just ran across your post and wanted to help. In order to get the remote to possibly work the Inputs on your T.V the remote needs to be programmed to your Vizio T.V. In order to do this we have certain codes that can be integrated into the remote. Some of the codes for a Vizio T.V are 505, 671, and 627. The procedure is press and hold the clear T.V buttton located at the top of your remote until you see all the other buttons light up in red, once they are lid up enter one of your codes followed by the pound key for example: 505#. The T.V button should light up 3 times you can then try the remote to see if it works your T.V

    Unfortunately we cannot promise it will completely function the T.V so it might bu that input button does not work. If you need any help please contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH.

    In your TV's menu there should be a wireless setup. You didn't supply the Model of the TV. Here's a manual for a Vizio: http://store.vizio.com/documents/downloads/hdtv/M3D650SV/1185QSG_M3D650SV_B.pdf

    SOURCE: have a vizio lcd tv . can not get any channels

    Your TV probably does not have a digital tuner connected to the DTV/ANT input. Mine didn't. I had to connect the digital antenna to a digital converter box THEN go to the DTV/ANT input. Only then would it activate the DTV menu and allow me to scan for channels. If your TV worked fine with Cable TV connected to the input, it was because your signal was coming from the digital tuner in your DVR, or your cable provider was sending you an unscrambled digital signal (not likely).
    I used a digital converter box I had purchased with the government $40 coupon back in 2009 but the resolution is only 480 and looks like a Monet or Renoir. Now I am shopping for a high quality tuner.

    MMy Vizio 32" tv only gets 16 channels


    If your Vizio TV has a built-in HD converter, 16 channels is what you can expect. If the channels are identified with decimals such as 10.1, 10.2, etc. they are HD. The cable connection you refer to must be connected to an antenna, otherwise you would have a cable box and a monthly bill from some cable company

    TV freezes up when turned to channel 33-1


    I had the same problem. I also use rabbit ear antenna , no cable or satellite. I was watching ch. 33.1 and the tv turned off by itself. The remote wouldn't work. The power on/off buttons on the side of the tv wouldn't work. I had to un-plug the power cord to turn the tv off. The tv forze on ch. 33.1 when I turned it back on.

    I called Vizio, they told me they received hundreds of complaints from people in Texas complain g about these problems.

    I was told to un-plug the antenna cable and re-plug it. I did this plus I re-scanned all channels. The problem has been solved, the channel (33.1) no longer freezes and the tv doesn't turn off by itself.

    Hope this helps.

    I can't scan DTV channels on my vizio 52''


    do you have antenna or cable? if you have antena hook directly to the coax, go to menu, TV, tuner and pick antenna and scan. If you have cable hook directly to your coax repeat the previous step but pick cable instead of antenna. Notice if you have a cable box, you will not need to scan for channel since it will be on channel 3, 4 or any other input you may use.

    Can't change channel using the remote or buttons on tv


    Simple Fix

    I had the same problem, couldn't change the channels with the remote or on the side of the TV. This was for a Vizio 37"

    Here is the fix:

    1. Turn on TV

    2. With remote, press the Menu Button

    3. Go to Antenna Menu

    4. Select Auto Search
    Let it search, it could take several minutes. It may not finish to 100%, mine got stuck at 79% for 10 minutes. It's fine if that happens, go ahead and cancel.

    5. It should be done, your remote will work perfect along with the TV channel buttons.
