Cannot pair rc73 remote with Vizio TV

Cannot pair rc73 remote with Vizio TV

I tried to pair a soundbar to my remote and was unsuccessful. My remote had been working fine with my Vizio e3d470vx model before this. Now it does not pair at all. I tried, new batteries, resetting, holding mute and select buttons (instructions say hold mute and enter, but no "enter" button on my remote. Reset the dtv box. Unplugged waited and plugged back in, no luck. I also tried to set the remote to IR mode, no luck. Then tried to go back to RF mode, no luck. Tired over and over, following instructions perfectly. I have tried for hours and hours. Even took the batteries out of remote overnight, still no luck. Still my rc73 remote will not pair up with my Vizio TV. It worked fine before. Yes, new batteries, too. Any ideas?

Thank you. I must have looked at that remote 100 times and did not see it. It is in a strange location, but that doesn't really excuse me. Got it working now, pretty easy when you do it the right way. Smiley Happy
