Vizio TV Instructions


If you've got your new Vizio TV out of the packaging and you're wondering what's next, don't worry. While HDTV technology may seem intimidating, it is straightforward to setup and use. Don't spend extra cash on an audio/visual installation service when you can complete the process yourself, even if you have limited knowledge of HDTVs. Advances in cable technology allow you to make the best possible connections with a limited number of wires.

Things You'll Need

  • HDMI cables
  • Component cables
  • Place your TV in your home theater setup. For larger TVs, use a friend to help you position your TV in the desired spot.

  • Plug one end of an HDMI cable into the "HDMI" port on the rear of your cable or satellite set-top box. Insert the other end into one of the "HDMI IN" ports on the rear panel of the Vizio TV.

  • Insert another HDMI cable into the "HDMI" port on the rear of your Blu-ray or DVD player and plug the other end into one of the open "HDMI IN" ports on the Vizio's input panel.

  • Use the "Component IN" ports to connect a gaming console or other device to the TV.

  • Plug the power cable from the Vizio into a nearby power outlet. Turn on a video source, such as a Blu-ray player. Press the "Input" button on the TV's control panel or the Vizio remote until the image from the video source appears on the screen. Use the "Input" button to cycle through the connections from your equipment.

  • Press the Menu button on your remote, or on the front panel of the TV to access the Vizio's settings and options. Set the color balance in the Color menu. Establish the preferred signal source in the Source or CATV/SAT menu. If you are using a cable or satellite set-top box, select that source as it appears on your screen. If you are plugging a cable or antenna feed directly into the Vizio, select that option, then allow the TV to cycle through all available channels.
