SOURCE: hello, I have 2 black wires
The timer should have red, black,blue and green wires. (no white?) If you have only the two black wires coming from junction box, then connect green to ground like you did. Connect the incoming black (HOT) to the black wire on the timer.connect the outgoing (to the light) to the blue wire on the timer. Cap of with wire nut the red wire. This is for a single pole switch installation (Only switch for the light) If this is for a 3-way control (where you have 2 or more switches) then you use the red.

I test these timers.
GE 15071 timer has internal clock that runs on electricity. That's why timer has extra wire.
Intermatic, GE, Tork, Leviton, Sylvania, Woods, Utilitec etc in-wall timers each wire the same way.
The only tiny difference is GE doesn't have green ground wire.
Here's what to do:
1) Old switch has two screws (excluding green ground screw)
One screw on old switch has 2 black wires >> these are hot wires > timer black wire connects to these hot wires. This will power the timer.
2) The other switch wire connects to timer red wire. This will send timer signal to lights.
3) Timer white wire is for the timer clock.
Timer white wire connects to other white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut >>> these are neutral wires, and now timer clock will operate
4) For EZ connection to other white wires, strip back another inch on timer white wire so stranded wire can wrap like a candy cane around solid copper wires. Then twist wire nut on very tight.
5) When wiring is complete, push door on timer for manual override. Lights should turn ON-OFF. If lights do not turn on, reverse timer red and timer black wires. Make sure outdoor bulbs are working.

SOURCE: This is what I was
Hi Steve, I'd like to help you, but you'll need to provide a bit more information. What kind of timer is it? Is this a timer mounted in the wall like a light switch? Are you in the US (for interpreting wire color conventions)? Of the colors of wires you describe, which ones are on the timer, and which ones are in the wall box (or whatever). Good luck, Al K
