I have a 26in GFM TV, Model MJ477GG (written on the back of the TV). Searching online told me that my remote model was NE601UE.
I used the Emerson Jumbo Universal Remote and the code under Model:Emerson (#189) worked. I can change volume, channels, input mode, access menu, power on/off.

Granddaughter dropped my remote for 26" gfm lcd tv. unit was a gonner. tried 6 different universals with no luck, including 2 gfm models. tried to do without but couldnt stand going from channel 81 to channel 7 using the pushbutton on the set. my 12 year old grandson, jeff, told me to try remotes.com on the web. according to remotes.com, the original remote is no longer manufactured but they do sell a replacement for $39.95. i ordered it and when it came, it had batteries installed and worked right out of the box. no trying diff. codes or anything. what a relief/

It's not the fault of the GFM TV. It's the lazy or incompetent remote makers who are too lazy to update their codes.
The Logitech Harmony 520 Univ Remote had no problem finding code for my 26" GFM model VO7LCD26 hdtv. But, this remote costs about $100 (at Meijer) and is programed via your computer using included dvd software & USB cable, so their codes are fresh daily.
This was after trying Comcast (no help at all), an RCA univ remote that claimed to work on anything (it didn't), and even a GFM brand univ remote !
The Logitech 520 is the only solution I've found.

I will never buy this brand of TV again. You cannot use any other remote with this TV and have full functionality except for the OEM replacement which is 30 bucks. Too much for the amount I paid for this TV. I will just go and buy a new one from another company.
Customer service doesn't even offer to replace. They send you right to Remotes.com to purchase a new remote.
I am upset because I cannot use my cable remote now and without the OEM I cannot access the AUX channels, so it is only good for hooking up to an old VCR.

I have a gfm 42" LCD 1080p TV and the code that worked for me was the Sylvania TV 0502 code for a Philips Universal remote.

Gee Whiz, this is the same problem that is happening to me!! I've followed the directions on the paper that came with the RCA Universal Remote and nothing works. We want to program the VCR into the TV. Help, PLEASE! Sorry, this isn't a solution but only added to the problem. Old Tar Boy
