Vizio Universal Remote Codes Full List (2023)

If you have a Vizio TV or any other television, you must first program your remote to it before you can power it or browse channels. This process involves connecting your remote to your television. The remote control is available with the Vizio TV or can be bought independently when you purchase it. 

List of Vizio Universal Remote Code

The remotes you can pair with any television are universal remotes. You can set up these remotes by entering a GE remote code to program them. We’ve come up with this detailed guide for you by providing an extensive list of Vizio universal remote codes, so read on!

 

Universal Remotes Explained

Universal remotes are the remotes that come with Vizio televisions that can power other gadgets as well. You can check whether your remote is a regular or universal remote by checking its buttons. 

Check if your remote has the Set and Mode buttons. This indicates whether your remote is a universal remote and can be used with other Vizio devices.

Universal remotes have a vast range. For example, you can purchase one with greater compatibility options to power a more significant number of devices. In addition, GE universal remotes have greater affordability than regular remotes, priced at just under ten dollars.

 

Remote Codes

You need a compatible remote code to pair your Vizio TV or any other device with your universal remote. After pressing a button, or a series of buttons, your Vizio TV will require a code to be input before you can proceed. 

GE (General Electric) universal remote codes can be input. GE remote controls come with a corresponding list, so check to see if the television supports CL3, CL4, or CL5 codes. This information is on the sticker at the back of the remote’s battery compartment. 

Sometimes, an entered code does not work. This is why there’s an exhaustive list of GE remote codes, which you can replace in case one code or the other does not work. The remote codes can be two, three, or four digits. A list of all the remote codes for Vizio televisions is given below.

You should now program your remote with the Vizio TV or other gadget with one of the above-mentioned GE universal remote codes.

How to Program the Remote with Television Sets

Method#1: The Manual Method

A series of steps precede the process of entering your universal remote codes. The following guide works for all Vizio TVs, including LCDs, LEDs, and Plasma televisions. 

  1. Switch on the TV you want to program your Vizio Remote with.
  2. Locate the TV button on the universal remote. To enable the Learning Mode, press the Setup button. 
  3. Press the TV button for five seconds until the LED light flashes twice.
  4. Using the number buttons, enter the aforementioned GE universal TV codes. The LED light should flash after you enter each number. The LED blinks twice and switches off if the code you entered is accepted
  5. Point to the Vizio TV and press the power button to check if your remote is working. The setup has been completed if the device turns off
  6. The code has not been accepted if the device does not power off. Repeat the steps and use a different code until the device pairs. 

Method#2: The Auto Method

The automatic method allows the remote to cycle through the remote codes that are already present in its memory banks. 

  1. Turn on the TV with its power button since the remote still needs to be programmed. 
  2. Hold the Setup button for five seconds until a red light appears. 
  3. Press and hold the power button for five-second intervals until the television switches off. 
  4. After your Vizio TV has turned off, power it back on. 
  5. Keep pressing the Volume Up button for three seconds in different intervals until the remote programs with the television.
  6. Press the TV button on your remote to save the code. This prevents the need to reprogram constantly. 

 

Using the Vizio TV Universal Remote

To confirm if the codes have been accepted, use any of the buttons on your remote to check if it corresponds to the TV. The Vizio apps and the internet on the Vizio TV cannot be accessed using a universal remote. A regular Vizio remote is needed. 

 

4 Reasons your Universal Codes are not Working

Sometimes, the device does not power on even after entering the remote codes. This can correspond to either a problem with the device or the way you have input the codes. For example, the following reasons might be why your remote is not working with the device.

Reason #1: Battery Issues

Your remote might be facing battery issues. First, check to see if the batteries are correctly oriented. If this does not work, consider replacing them. Ensure you keep your remote away from wet places which damage the batteries. 

Reason #2: Incorrect Codes

While hastily entering the universal remote codes, you might mistakenly enter the wrong numbers. Thus, make sure the correct numbers are added correctly by rechecking the list of universal codes.

Reason #3: Object Obstructions

If an object is blocking your remote control or the Vizio TV, remove it. Make sure there is nothing in front of the TV while browsing channels or powering it. 

Reason #4: Newer Television and Old Codes

If you have a newer Vizio TV, an older universal remote code will probably not work on it. Try replacing the list of codes manufactured after the television model has come out. Do this instead of copying the remote codes from another television’s instruction manual. 

 

Conclusion

Connecting your television to a universal Vizio remote is a relatively simple process, detailed in the guide above. We hope the extensive list of GE universal remote codes helped you connect your television with the Vizio remote.
