Vizio TV sound problems are common but can be a source of frustration. Here is a step-by-step guide to getting the sound back on your Vizio TV.

Step 1: Unplugging the TV

The simplest solution to Vizio TV sound problems is often the most effective.

  1. Unplug your TV from the wall: Disconnect the TV for about 60 seconds. Don’t be impatient; make sure you wait the full minute.
  2. Plug it back in: This will reset your TV, a procedure quite different from merely switching the remote on and off.

Step 2: Checking for Updates

If the unplug-replug trick doesn’t work, this method might solve your problem.

  1. Press the Menu or V button on the remote: This will give you access to the system settings.
  2. Go to System and Check for Updates: This ensures that your TV has the latest software, which might resolve any sound issues.

Step 3: Performing a Factory Reset

A factory reset should be your last resort as it deletes all your settings and apps.

  1. Press the Menu button on the remote: This opens the system settings.
  2. Navigate to System, then Reset and Admin: From here, you’ll be able to initiate the factory reset.
  3. Reset to Factory Defaults: This action will reset your television to the same way it was when you first purchased it.


Fixing sound problems on a Vizio TV is usually a straightforward process. These methods should solve the problem for the majority of users. However, remember to be patient and follow the steps accurately, especially when resetting the TV.
