How to Program a GE Universal Remote Control
Programming a GE/Jasco Universal Remote Control is simple, requires only a few simple steps. You need to know the code of device you are programming into the remote. See the GE remote control codespage for 3 digit or 4 digit GE remotes.
How to enter codes manually:
Step 1: Turn on the device (VCR, DVD, TV, Satellite receiver etc.) you wish to program.
Step 2: Press and hold the "CODE SEARCH" or "SETUP" button on the remote until the indicator light turns on, then release.
Step 3: Press and release the button for the device you are programming (VCR, DVD, TV etc.). For AUX, press AUX button, then the device button you are assigning to AUX. The indicator light will blink then remain lit.
Step 4: Enter the three-digit or four-digit code (depending on your GE remote model) for your device using the number buttons. After your code is entered the indicator light will turn off.
Step 5: Aim the remote at the device you want to control and press the POWER button. Your device should turn off. If your equipment does not respond to the first code listed in the documentation, repeat steps with the next code. If the device responds correctly to other functions like Volume or Program up/down, no further programming is required.
