Vizio TV power button
You can open a Vizio Television easily, as all of these televisions come with a power button. However, the said button might not be easy to find. This button can be found behind the TV, bottom left or bottom right corner, depending on your model. But after you stumble upon this button, you can easily open your Vizio TV anytime you want.
Other buttons for Vizio TV
Your Vizio TV does have the power button and the channel, volume, and input options. The rationale behind the obscurity of the options is not to disturb the aesthetic. This gives a sleek design and minimalist look to the TV.
The following reason is that these in-build buttons are not ideal for maneuvering through the menus. However, since it comes with a remote and an application, your work on the remote can be done from there efficiently.

The most straightforward way to power your Vizio TV in case of a lost remote is to use the Vizio SmartCast application for Android and iOS.

If you are a first-time user, pair your device.

Once you have paired the device, you control it through the application like a remote. For example, you can switch it off or on, lower or raise the sound, change channels, set aspect ratio, etc.
