After programming my new universal remote, the tv keeps changing chanels! wont stop!

So the old remote finally stopped working, and i bought a GE universal remote. Now the tv as soon as you turn it on, keeps changing channels. Im not even holding the remote in my hand. in fact, the tv keeps changing channels even when the remote is in the other room! HELP! things ive tried: 1.unplugging the tv for more than 24 hrs, hoping it would "de-program" itself 2. pressing "menu" 3. pressing channel up and channel down to make it go the other way, didnt stop! 4. removing the batteries from the possesed by -satan-remote!

Re: after programming my new universal remote, the tv...

You need to program your remote control. take the battaries out. and maually turn the tv on. then hit the source you want to view. for example, I want to control the tv set. I push, code search and hold it then push the source button and then release the source button and then release the code search button. now, aim at the tv and then keep pressing power button till it goes off. when the tv is off, hit return or set or something like that.( every remote has different calling for it but still the same function) it should work. try it and let me know.

I have a ge universal remote and my tv is a Magnavox can I find the code for my tv with this remote

You can use code search to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote (such as Philips). All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.

I have a 32" GE XS Stereo- Commercial Skip T.V. Model# 25GT270 Made in Mexico Aug 1999 > No remote. I purchased a GINORMOUS universal remote control new in the box from 2nd hand store. No instructi

:),a tv does not use either play or stop commands,in most universal remote u need to set the apropriate code for the tv set so u can use volum,chanells and other tv specific commands.
In order to do that u need the manual!!! many china remotes have printed on the back of the box a long list or have a very thin paper hide in the box eith several codes.
good practice:a universal remote use a SET button and a TV button,that if u press at the same time will enter the mode set tv code.if u don,t have the code,press once again set after set+tv,will enter the scan mode,keep the remote pointed on the tv,if lucky after a short time(1 minute) the remote scanned and found the tv so u can enjoy some commands.many tv set have comun codes that will make a remote with no apropriate set to stop in a not full mode,so u only will acces part of the video and fotos
best regards

Need a code for zenith/vcr combo.

Program a GE Universal Remote Using Code Search Make sure the device for which you want to program the remote is turned on, and that the GE universal remote has good working batteries in it. Batteries that are weak may keep the universal remote from being programmed. Press and hold the Setup or Code Search button. Again, the name of the button will vary between GE universal remote models. Once the indicator light is lit, you can stop pressing the button. Press the button with the name of the device for which you want to program the GE universal remote (such as TV or DVD) and release it immediately. The indicator light should flash a time or two and then simply stay lit. Now all you have to do is point the GE universal remote at the device you selected, press the Power button and release it. The catch is that if the device does not turn off, you must wait at least two seconds and try again. The GE universal remote will attempt to program the right code for the device, cycling through all of its built-in codes. This can take up to 250 attempts. When the universal remote (finally) catches the right code and is programmed, the device will power off. Once this happens, press the Enter or Save button on the GE remote to complete the programming process. and for free

Refuses to work

you are going to have to try a new universal remote because that one is not capable of programming to your tv. not all universals will work. trial and error. your best option sense you need to purchase a new remote is to go to and search my your TV model number and purchase the original equipment manufactured remote for your tv. Good news you wont have to program it either. and it will work your menu functions.
