Whether you own a “Vizio IR remote” or a “Vizio Voice Remote,” you can easily use the volume buttons to turn up the volume on your Vizio TV. However, it can be troublesome if you have lost the remote or don’t have easy access to it. Also, there can be times when these buttons stop working and you need an alternative.
Luckily, Vizio TVs have a physical volume button to help you in such cases. Besides, if you do not find it convenient, you can also use SmartCast mobile applications or Alexa smart speakers to accomplish the job.

Use Volume Buttons on Remote
Vizio TV remotes have a dedicated volume button to help you increase or decrease the volume. You can easily use the Volume up button on the remotes to turn up the volume.
However, you should first check the volume levels of the source device, like a DVD player or a set-top box. Please set it appropriately. Else, you won’t hear a sound, despite setting the TV volume to the highest.
On General Vizio Remotes
If you own general IR remotes from Vizio, you can use the Volume (VOL) button that lies in the middle left part of the remote.
- Face your remote towards the TV.
- Press the (+) side of the VOL button to increase the volume.
On Vizio Voice Remotes
Vizio has started providing smart voice remotes since January, 2020. So, if you own the latest model of Vizio TV with a voice remote, you can also easily use the integrated volume button to change the volume levels. The volume button is located just below the Voice button on the remote.
