Vizio TV is one of the best in the field of Television. You can achieve a lot as well as tune it with your desired choices. There are many ways to achieve this. For the time being, we are you to focus on one of the things, and that is Vizio TV remote codes.
Our remote codes guide would include code for Ge, RCA universal codes for easy access and usability. Let us proceed so we can start by explaining what there are, how to use them properly, and what effect they have.
What are Vizio Universal remote codes
For those who are not aware of what remote codes are, have you ever wondered how your TV and remote interact? Oh yes, I get it; through the use of Infrared sensors.
Well, that is a technical explanation but what guarantees that your remote controls your TV and not some drone flying nearby, or your neighbor’s TV? This is all due to Remote codes, or TV codes.
Remote or TV codes are simply certain codes that are provided to each variant and brand of TV. This helps the remote in identifying whom to interact with.
When you press a button, the remote sends a signal which is only accepted by the TV whose remote code matches with the one in the remote. Thus, eliminating any problems of controlling other’s devices.
The same thing applies to Vizio TV. When you buy a new remote or change it, you would need to tune it so it works with you, and only your TV (or the same variants at least). Remote codes help with this.
GE Universal Remote Codes for Vizio TV
GE Universal remote codes are abundant in numbers. This means you would not face any kind of difficulty in finding the right one for your remote.
However, this also increases the issue of sorting through all the codes to find the right one. Fortunately, there is a way to do this quickly.
How to find your GE remote correct model
To find your GE Remote Model and correct version all you need to do is turn over your remote and take out the lid covering the battery chamber.
Probably on a sticker, or engraved on the plastic would be the list of codes and modes. You can look at them to determine which one your remote is.
To summarise, you would find one of the three codes types, CL3, CL4, or CL5. These are based on different periods of when your remote was made, ultimately helping in tuning it properly.
If you have CL3 code remote, try using these codes (for GE remotes made after 2013):
5561, 5571, 5581, 5591, 5601, 5611, 5621, 5631, 5641, 5651, 5661, 5671, 5681, 5691, 5701, 5711, 2901, 1471, 1741, 2021, 3651, 3741, 3851,4081.
For CL4 type code, use these (for GE remotes made after 2016):
5631, 5561, 6121, 6131, 5611, 6111, 5651, 5621, 5711.
At last, for CL5 type code (made in year 2019 or later), try these out:
5631, 5611, 5561, 6471, 6511, 6121, 6131, 6111, 5651, 5621, 5711.
RCA universal remote codes for Vizio TV
The RCA codes are no different in terms of application and design than the GE counterparts. If you would prefer to use the RCA Codes for your remote, try these:
0031, 0004, 0048, 0054, 0094, 0100, 0102, 0107, 0129, 0191, 0005, 0009, 0000, 0162, 0163, 0342, 0003, 0015, 0022, 0096, 0113, 0125, 0179, 0187, 0188.
So these are the remote codes for GE and RCA. Using these codes you can configure and tune your remote to control multiple of your devices as well! This comes in handy when you happen to have a lot of devices to control.
How to program Vizio Remote: Vizio Remote Setup
Since we have discussed the codes already, now comes the part where we discuss how to set it up and use it. Remember that this process is not complex, but is prone to errors.
Type in the codes carefully and do not panic if it does not work. Simply try another one and one of them is bound to work. With that being said, let us move on to the steps for this process.
Step 1: Turn on your TV.
This step is to be achieved with other devices as well that you need to configure, not just Vizio TVs.
Step 2: Pressing the TV button.
Press the TV button and keep holding it for five seconds or more. The LED would flash twice then remain lit for the rest of the time. This is the indication that everything is going properly.
Step 3: Entering your Remote code.
Using the number buttons on your remote, you can now feed the remote codes to the TV. Hopefully one would work or you can repeat it.
Each time you press one button the LED would flash once. This would happen and after the last digit is entered the LED flashes one final time and turns off. You would know the code was successful if this happens.
Step 4: Power off your TV.
Aim the remote of your TV (or the device) at it and press the power button. This is generally red with a shutdown icon on it. If the TV or the device shuts down this means the code worked.
Try a different code if it did not work! The steps would remain the same, and they are not too hard to repeat as you can see. You should try the slow or the play button in case the TV button fails to register.
These codes would work not only for Vizio TV but also for other brands such as Aiwa, Samsung, and other companies. You can also use it to sync your remote with DVDs, VCRs, and so on.
