How do you program a GE universal remote to a TV? Method 1
A GE universal remote can be programmed to a TV in two different ways:
Manual code search: To use this method, you must be aware of your TV’s code. This code can be found online or in the handbook for your TV.
Auto code search: This technique looks up codes on a list automatically and selects the one that is compatible with your TV.
Here are the instructions for doing a manual code search to programme a GE universal remote control to a TV:
Activate both the GE universal remote and your TV.
Press and hold the Setup button on the GE universal remote control until the Code Search light begins to flash.
Using the number buttons on the GE universal remote, enter the three or four-digit code for your TV.
On the GE universal remote, press the Enter button.
If the code is accurate, your television will go off. The Code Search indicator will keep flashing if the code is wrong. Continue from steps 3–4 until the code is accurate.
The following instructions explain how to use auto code search to programme a GE universal remote control to a TV:
- Activate both the GE universal remote and your TV.
- Press and hold the Setup button on the GE universal remote control until the Code Search light begins to flash.
- The GE universal remote’s Power button should be pressed and released.
- A list of codes will be searched by the GE universal remote.

Programming a universal remote to work with a Vizio TV involves a few steps. Here’s a general guide:
- Locate the Manufacturer Codes:Refer to the manual of your universal remote or find the manufacturer’s website for a list of codes. These codes correspond to different TV brands.
- Turn on Your Vizio TV:Ensure that your Vizio TV is powered on and ready.
- Press and Hold the Setup Button:Press and hold the “Setup” button on your universal remote. This button is usually located at the top, bottom, or back of the remote.
- Enter the TV Manufacturer Code:After holding the “Setup” button, you’ll typically see a light flash on the remote. Now, enter the code for Vizio. If there are multiple codes listed for Vizio, you might need to try them one by one until you find the one that works.
- Test the Remote:Once you’ve entered the correct code, point the remote at your Vizio TV and press some basic functions like volume up/down, channel up/down, and power. The TV should respond.
- Save the Code (if applicable):Some remotes require you to press a button like “Enter,” “OK,” or “Save” after entering the correct code to store it in memory.
- Test Additional Functions:Try out other functions like input selection, menu access, and any other features you need.
- Finalize Setup (if needed):Follow any additional instructions provided by your remote’s manual or on-screen prompts to complete the setup process.
Remember, the process may vary slightly depending on the brand and model of your universal remote. If the initial code you try doesn’t work, consult the remote’s manual for alternative methods, or try a different code from the list provided.
If you’re unable to find a working code, you might need to contact the manufacturer of your universal remote for further assistance.
