How to find the volume button on a Vizio TV – 3 steps


#1: Find the buttons on the left or right back side of the Vizio TV

“But there are no buttons on the TV.”

You won’t see any buttons if you’re looking at the front of your TV…

Why? 

Because they’re hidden for a reason.

Vizio TVs are designed to be aesthetic, slim, and sleek.

So, all the main buttons are either found on the left or right backside of the TV screen. 

Also, they’re located close to the HDMI ports.

Once you’ve located the buttons, you’ll see 3 of them:

  1. The top one is the power button.
  2. The middle with an up and down sign is the volume button.
  3. And the third one is the input button.

#2: Locate the buttons at the bottom of the Vizio TV screen

Some Vizio TV models have their main buttons at the bottom of the screen.

To locate these, touch the bottom with your hand.

Then try pushing the buttons to check what works.

The first button from the edge of the screen is usually the power button. Now, press it to see if the TV turns on or off.

The next 2 buttons should be the + and – volume buttons, followed by the input button.

#3: Find the single scroll button

If you didn’t find any buttons at the left and right backside or at the bottom of your screen…

Don’t panic. 

You might’ve bought a Vizio TV model with a single scroll button. Which is usually placed at the backside of your TV.

To operate this single scroll button, follow these steps:

  1. Press once to turn the TV on or off.
  2. Push twice to switch channels.
  3. Press 3 times to control the volume.
