Universal Remote Code List

The first thing you want to do is figure out the code for your TV. Like them or not, codes are an important part of universal programming remotes to TVs. Depending on the remote you own, codes may be required for your Vizio TV. Before listing the codes, you should know that various universal remotes are available in the marketplace.

Some require codes, and some do not. For example, these Logitech Harmony alternatives do not require codes at all.

The buttons you use on your remote control to enter the code to your Vizio Smart TV vary, but the codes of universal remotes are the same and compatible with your Vizio Smart TV.

A universal remote control identifies a specific TV brand and model, and its code for Vizio TV may be from two to five digits. In addition, codes may vary for different Vizio products, for example, the soundbar and Blu-Ray have different codes.

How to Pair a Vizio TV With a Universal Remote

To connect a universal remote to your Vizio TV, it is necessary to discover the code of the TV.

The remote codes consist of specific numbers (2-5) for different devices, such as televisions and sound systems. They inform the universal remote control which device it should connect to.

If you’ve bought a new universal remote, it likely came with the manual and directions to pair it with your devices. While the instructions for each model of remote may differ, they all follow the following procedure for setting the correct pairing code:

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to program your universal remote to control your Vizio TV:

  1. Locate the code list that came with your universal remote or find it online. The code list will have a list of codes for various TV brands, including Vizio.
  1. Turn on your Vizio TV and ensure it’s set to the correct input (e.g., HDMI1, HDMI2, etc.).
  1. Find the “Code Search” or “Programming” button on your universal remote. This could also be the TV button or Setup button on some remotes. The location and name of this button may vary depending on the make and model of your remote.
  1. Press and hold the “Code Search” or “Programming” button until the LED flashes and turns on. Note that the LED light may not flash on all models.
  1. Press the “TV” button on the universal remote.
  1. Using the keypad and number buttons on the universal remote, enter the first code listed for Vizio TVs from the code list.
  1. Point the universal remote at the TV and press the “Power” button to see if the TV turns off. If it does, you have successfully programmed the remote. If it doesn’t, move on to the next code listed for Vizio TVs and repeat the process until you find a code that works.
  1. Once you’ve found a code that works, write it down and keep it in a safe place in case you need to reprogram the universal remote in the future.

That’s it!

If you used the correct method and entered the correct code, you should now be able to use your universal remote to control your Vizio TV.

If you have any trouble following these steps or if the codes listed don’t work, you can try using the TV’s manual or contacting the manufacturer for further assistance.

What if a Universal Remote Code Doesn’t Work?

If you’ve tried the steps previously, but the code didn’t work, or you’re not sure which code is the best for the device you’re using, use the trial and error method.

Entering the codes mentioned in that table (with the correct number of digits) is essential, so please repeat the mentioned steps every time you try a new code until you find the one that works.
