The concept of sound is dynamic and we love to keep our volume in our control. But, sometimes it can be hard if you lose your remote somewhere or someone in the family (probably your sibling) hid it intentionally. This has happened to me a lot of times. And I’m sure you are experiencing the same.
Well, whatever the case, it can be quite frustrating if you can’t find your remote.
That’s, why here I will be discussing the workaround to control the volume on Vizio TV without a remote.
So without any delay let’s get started.
How to turn up volume on Vizio TV without remote
Quick Answer: To turn up the volume on Vizio TV without a remote you can use volume buttons on the TV, universal remote, IR blaster-supported device, or the SmartCast app to adjust the volume with your mobile device.
Method 1: Use the Vizio TV volume button
Vizio TV volume buttons are located on the lower right side when you look from the back side of the TV. The exact location varies with the model. You will find three main buttons together: Power, input, and volume buttons.
There must be two arrows. As you can tell, the arrow pointing upwards signifies volume up or high and the arrow pointing downwards signifies volume down or low.
If you are looking for more convenient methods where you do not have to operate volume buttons again and again, we suggest you check the other provided methods.

Now in order to pair your TV to the phone, you need to open the SmartCast app and follow the onscreen prompts.
- Step 3: Log in to your Vizio TV
Enter your Vizio ID and password to the app or continue as a guest. The primary user has access to the Vizio credentials so you can ask, to share them with you.
- Step 4: Choose the device you’d like to pair
You will see a list of SmartCast devices around you. Select the device you want to pair with the app and wait for further instructions.
- Step 5: Confirm the connection
A 4-digit number code will display on your TV screen at the top. You just need to enter it on your app in order to pair your TV and Vizio SmartCast app. And it’s done! You can now control your television from your mobile phone.
- Step 6: Press the settings button
The gear symbol button represents Settings. It must be present on the right side of the application. The settings menu will appear presenting multiple options for your TV.
- Step 7: Select Audio
There you will find many options related to the audio of the TV including the volume buttons. And you are done. Adjust the volume accordingly with your Vizio TV SmartCast app.
Method 3: Use IR sensor-supported smartphone
As you may already know, the remote-controlling system utilizes an infrared blaster sensor to relay commands to an appliance like your TV. Some smartphone devices support IR-blaster sensors out-of-the-box just to support IR remote features.
You can easily use the app to control any device around you. All you need to do is select the type of appliance and its build.
The only drawback is not all smartphone manufacturers provide IR blaster sensors in their devices. Xiaomi is one of the devices sporting an IR blaster in every smartphone. So, you will have to find a Xiaomi device or someone who owns it to utilize this feature.
There are other smartphones in the market as well. You can check out the list of IR blaster-supporting smartphones here.
- Step 1: Download ASmart Remote IR app on a supported smartphone. You can also use the pre-installed remote app.
