Programming a GE Universal Remote for an Element television can be a simple and easy process. Here, we’ll guide you through the steps and instructions to get your GE remote working seamlessly with your Element TV.

Check Compatibility:

First of all, you need to ensure that your GE Universal Remote is compatible with Element smart televisions. Most GE remotes are versatile and should work, but it’s always a good thing to check and confirm this in your remote’s manual book.

Find the Code: 

GE Universal Remotes come with a manual that lists codes for various TV brands. Look for the code for Element in your manual. If you can’t find it, don’t worry; we’ll provide steps for a code search as well.

Steps to program your GE remote control to Element TV with remote codes

  1. Make sure your Element TV is turned on.
  2. Press and Hold the Setup Button on your GE remote control. It is to locate the “Setup” button and press and hold it until the indicator LED light on the remote turns on. It typically takes a few seconds.
  3. Enter the code by using the number keypad on your remote. Enter the code for Element TV that you found in the manual, or you can see below. The indicator light on the remote should turn off if the code is correct and accepted. If not, it will blink. If it blinks, then you need to try entering the code again.
  4. You need to test the remote. Point your remote at your Element TV and press any buttons like Volume Up/Down or Channel Up/Down to see if they work or not. If they work fine, then your programming is successful. If not, you may need to repeat the process with a different code.
