How to Find the Physical Power Button on VIZIO Smart TV Devices

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t know where your Vizio TV’s physical power button is. And if you can’t find the remote, turning on your TV can seem impossible.

The power button is usually located on the back of the TV, near the inputs. It may be labeled with a power symbol or the word “Power.”

Once you’ve found the power button, simply press it and hold it for a few seconds start or restart your VIZIO TV. The device should turn on. If it doesn’t, try pressing and holding the button for a longer period of time.

If your TV still won’t turn on, there may be an issue with the power cord or outlet. Make sure both are plugged in firmly and that the outlet is receiving power. If everything looks fine but your TV still won’t turn on, contact Vizio customer support for assistance.

One way to start up your device is to use the physical buttons on the back of your TV. There is usually a power button and sometimes a volume button as well. If you can’t find the power button, try looking for a button that has a picture of a sun or an arrow pointing up.

Another way to turn on your Vizio TV is to use the buttons on the side of your TV. These are typically called input buttons and they’re used to change the input source of your TV. One of these buttons should turn on your TV.

If all else fails, you can always plug your TV into an outlet and flip the switch on the wall. This will turn on your Vizio TV, but it won’t work if your TV is already turned on.
