Where Is The Power Button On My Vizio TV
The power button on the Vizio TV is located on the back side, towards the bottom right section, just beneath the HDMI port. On older models of Vizio TVs, the power button is located on the bezel on the front or either side.
As mentioned earlier, the position of the power button differs from model to model. For example, the V Series Vizio TVs’ power button placement differs from the P series or the D series.
Similarly, the button layout and placement change from year to year. Over time, the TVs will get major design updates, and so does the position of the power button gets changed.
Below is the list of significant series of TVs from Vizio:
- 4K OLED Series
Multiple TVs in the same series will mostly have the exact button placement. Only the size or internal specifications vary greatly.
Now that you know all the basics about the placement of buttons on Vizio TV and how it changes from model to model and manufacturing year, let’s look at a guide on how to find the power button on your Vizio TV.
I’ll provide guides for older and newer variants of Vizio TVs, so follow the guide depending on your TV model.
Power Button Position On Newer Vizio TVs
It’s a little tricky to find the power button on newer models of Vizio TVs. The TVs have become thinner, and the button placement has to be strategically placed to reduce the TV’s bulkiness.
Thin LCD, LED, and OLED TVs started appearing on the market in late 2015. Every Vizio TV model since then has the same power button placement.
If you have a Vizio TV manufactured in 2015 or later, follow the instruction below to find the power button placement.
The power button on the newer Vizio TV is located on the back side of the TV towards the bottom right side. Closely examine the bottom right side to find various buttons and ports.
If your TV is mounted on the wall, run your fingers over the lower-bottom-right-side to find the buttons. Or, if the TV is on a stand, then turn the TV to a side to make the back side visible. You’ll find the power button and two other buttons on the back’s bottom-right side.
Refer to the image below to get more idea regarding the power button placement on Vizio TV. (Your TV should have the exact power button placement or, in some cases, closer)
Power Button Position On Older Vizio TVs
It’s easy to find the power button on older Vizio TVs made before 2015. When compared with newer models, these models are huge and bulky.
In most cases, the power button on older Vizio TVs is on the front. You will find it on the bottom section, towards the left. The frame that runs around the screen is called a bezel.
You will find the power button on the bottom bezel on the left.
Similarly, the power button is housed on the backside in some models. Slightly turn the TV to the right side to reveal the buttons on the left side.
You’ll find multiple buttons one after the other. The power button is on the top.

Why Is It Difficult To Find The Power Button On A Vizio TV
Over the past few years, TVs have been getting thinner and thinner. Nowadays, TVs barely have any bezel; running around the screen.
Making TV thinner and eliminating bezels helps to deliver an immersive TV-watching experience. Every TV manufactures are marching in the same direction.
As the TV frame (bezel) got smaller and smaller, the companies could no longer accommodate any button on them. So the buttons are moved to the back and either side of the TV to hide them and make the TV thinner.
If you upgrade to one of these TVs from an older one, you will find it challenging to find the power button as it will be hidden on the back side or left and right sides.
In most Vizio TV models, the power button will be located on the lower back, to the left side. In older models, it might be on the front, to the bottom left corner, or on the sides of the TV.
If this is your first time using a Vizio TV, then it will take some time to get used to the new button layout and positions.
So hope you managed to find the power button on your Vizio Smart TV.
