There could be a few different things causing the problem, but beginning troubleshooting would consist of the basic questions such as, are there fresh batteries in the remote and is the remote in the correct "Mode?" In order to change the satellite channels- remote needs to be in "SAT," mode, you can verify what mode the remote is in by attempting to change channels, or by simply pressing any button on the remote such as channel up or down - if the remote is in fact in sat mode the "SAT" button in the upper left hand corner of the remote will light up- this will allow you to confirm the remote is in the correct mode to allow you to successfully change channels. Also another potential issue is when you started experiencing these remote problems- has anything changed? Did you perhaps move the receiver to a different/new location? The sensor on the top of the remote and the front panel of the receiver need to have a clear path of signal in order to work, sometimes (usually rare) if the receiver is enclosed within a cabinet with glass doors this can cause an issue as well. Hope one of these tips helps; feel free to contact me directly if you need any further assistance.

SOURCE: need remote code for programming a bell expressvu receiver

Here for the Jensen remote just click below;

Here is link to the manual:

Here is some helpful information I found:
Without the code on JER-323:
1.Manually turn on the component you want the remote to control.
2. Press the device button, example:( TV) and the (power button) for 3 seconds until the (on/off button stays lit).
3. Once the (on/off) button is lit, press the (on/off) button until the unit (the TV or unit you are trying to control.) turns off.
4. When the code is located, press the (stop) button at the bottom to save the code.
Here are some codes I found for the Jensen 323:
GE VCR: 2000, 2013, 2021, 2022, 2053, 2087, 2089, 2091, 2115, 2120

To see if the problem is with your remote control, go to the receiver and use the channel up/down buttons on the receiver itself. If you can change your channels with the buttons on the receiver, the batteries in your remote control probably need to be changed.

If you can't change channels from the receiver, turn off the receiver. Then unplug it for at least 15 seconds. Plug the receiver back it and turn it on. Again, try changing channels from the receiver itself.

Tune to a channel, and while programming is playing, try tuning to the missing channel by entering the channel number on the remote control keypad to see if channels change. Do not try to select the channel from a channel list, program guide, or favorites list.

If this approach takes you to the correct channel, you need to adjust your favorites list function. Press the "guide" button on your remote. Look for a button on your remote called "fav" or "list." Press it several times and watch for an indication at the top of the guide that you are moving from "all channels" to a particular favorites list.

If you are locked on one channel only, your Channel Lock feature is likely active. Consult your owner's manual to unlock the rest of your channels. See your owner's manual for information on managing favorite channel lists and locking out channels. Enter your password, if necessary.

Remote will turn on TV and Receiver, but won't show the program guide, or change channels


Your remote needs to be readdressed to the receiver if you are not able to change channels or bring up any of the receiver menus. Have you already replaced the batteries with new batteries? I have provided a link with instructions on how to readdress the remote to your receiver. Select the type receiver you have, which will open a PDF document with the instructions on how to readdress the remote to the receiver. If this doesn't resolve the issue, you may need a new remote. I hope this helps.
