How to Fix Vizio TV Stuck on Galaxy Screen

Is your Vizio TV stuck on Galaxy screen after you turn it on or while watching something? If so, you are not alone, as many users have reported the same issue on different social websites and are looking for a solution all around the internet. Worry not, this guide will help you fix the issue, as we have concluded some of the best troubleshooting methods.

Vizio TVs are known for their good products at an affordable price since they offer high-quality features with decent picture quality starting at an entry-level price. While all of this is great, they are not free from issues, just like other TVs. One common issue is that the TV is stuck on a purple Galaxy screen.

When having the issue, pressing the Home button does nothing. Moreover, rebooting and re-plugging do not work for many users. However, you can give it a try before moving on to the fixes we have listed below in the article, as they might work for you. Read on to check out the methods that help you resolve the issue.

While there can be several reasons responsible for the issue, whatever the reason, you can easily solve the problem with the methods we have included in this article. Read on to know the steps.

Switch Input Source

Many Reddit users have reported that switching the input source helped them fix the issue. However, if the physical remote does not help you fix the issue, you need to use the mobile remote in that case.

If you previously paired the Vizio mobile app with your TV, you can use it to change the input source, and the issue should be fixed.

For those unaware, Vizio has a Vizio mobile app that turns your phone into a virtual remote. You can use it to control your TV’s functions without needing a physical remote control. If the physical remote does not work, you can use the mobile app to change the input source. Here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Tap Input, either on a physical or mobile remote.

Step 2: Go to HDMI 1, then go back to Vizio Home.

Once you do, most likely, your issue should be fixed. If not, you have no choice left other than resetting the TV.

Note: If you are using a physical remote to change the input source, it might not work. If this happens, try the mobile remote once before resetting the TV, as many users used the mobile app remote to change the input and it worked for them.

Reset Vizio TV

If changing the input source does not work for you, reset the TV. It’s the last method you have left, but it will definitely work since it resets the TV to its default state. We have a dedicated guide on how to reset Vizio TV; you can check it out. If you are unable to perform the reset, try resetting the TV using the without-remote method.
