Where is the power button on Vizio TV? It sounds like a very simple question but it is not that simple to find manual buttons in new Vizio TV models. In this post, we will share the exact spot of the power button in older and new Vizio smart TVs.
We know! Finding the location of the power button on new Vizio TV models is daunting. Gone are days when you could easily find buttons on the front bezel. To maintain the minimalist design approach, designers come up with modern TV models displaying no visible buttons on the front. A power button and remote control are two default ways to switch on and turn off your Vizio TV. Therefore, it becomes difficult if you don’t have a remote and want to turn on your Vizio TV.
This post will walk you through possible locations to trace the power button on different Vizio smart TV models. These buttons act as a backup to let you manually Power ON your Vizio TV and perform other functions when the remote is not working.
In new models, the Vizio TV button is located at the back whereas, in models before 2015, the button is located on the side or underneath the display.

We will share where the manual control panel is located on a Vizio TV before 2015 and in newer models. Let’s get started.
Power Button in Vizio TV Models Before 2015
Back then, when it was only a conventional line-up of HDTVs by Vizio, the power button was mostly present:
- The left bottom corner of the front bezel
- The left bezel faces the TV screen
Some series that fall into this category include the XVT series, the style-minded VT series, and the budget/value E series.

Power Button in Vizio TV Models with Jag Wheel
2010 Vizio models, including Vizio XVT553SV, came equipped with just one button called a ‘Jag Wheel Control’ present on the left panel of the TV. If your Vizio tv only has one button you can perform all functions like volume up/down, channel change, input source, and power functions, with that button. Press it once, and a menu with the following options will display:
- Input source
- Power off
Scroll down using the same wheel to highlight the desired option and press it to perform an action.
Power Button Location in Vizio TV New Models [2015 Onwards]
Newer Vizio TV models require a little searching to locate the manual power button. They are not easily accessible and are mostly found on the rear panel of TVs below the input ports for HDMI.
Modern TV units have a very sleek and minimal design. They serve a bigger purpose than an entertainment medium. It is now used as a piece of style to enhance the home interior.
Therefore, manual power buttons and other practical elements like volume and channel buttons are kept hidden to maintain the aesthetics of the Vizio TVs.
Models released after 2015, i.e., Vizio V Series, P series Quantum, Vizio OLED, D50-D1, and other series, have a Power button located at the back of the TV. Below we have shared its location screenshot:
However, this gets a little frustrating when the TV is mounted against a wall, as the space behind it is insufficient to move your fingers around easily. Therefore, we advise you to use a remote instead; if it is malfunctioning, you can get a universal remote.
