2 Easy Ways To Find the Model Number And The Serial Number of Your Vizio TV

You might need to find the model number or serial number of your Vizio TV if you plan on buying an extended warranty for it or if you need to contact Vizio’s technical support phone line.

The model number indicates the type of TV. It’s helpful for finding information and learning about the features of the TV you have.

The serial number refers to the specific unit you have in your home. This serial number can indicate a manufacturing date, the date it was sold to you, and whether or not the 12 month warranty is still active.

How To Find The Model And Serial Number The Easy Way

If you have a Vizio TV that was purchased after January of 2011 you can use the remote control to bring up information about the TV right on the TV screen.

Older TVs

  1. Press Menu on your remote control.
  2. Select “Help” on the TV screen and press the OK button.
  3. Go to “System Info” and press the OK button.

The System Info page will give you a lot of information about your TV. The first thing listed on this screen is TVSN. This is the serial number of your TV.

Listed right below the serial number of the TV will be the model number of the TV.

Newer TVs

  1. Press Menu on the remote.
  2. Select “System” then press the OK button.
  3. Go to “System Information” and press the OK button.

Your TV’s serial number and model number will be the first two items on the System Information page.

The Not So Easy Way Of Finding the Serial Number And Model Number Of The TV.

If you are not able to find the serial or model on the TV screen then you can find all this information and more on the back of the TV.

Some of you reading this may have your TVs wall mounted. If you’re not able to peek behind the TV then you might have to remove the TV from the mount to find what you are after.

Even if the TV is on it’s original stand the label on the back of the TV might be hard to get to if you have a large TV.

Vizio TVs have a white sticker on the back of the TV with a bar code. The serial number and model number of your TV will be printed on this sticker. You can use these to find out just about anything you need to know about your TV.
