Question about Daewoo DTQ-19P2FC 19" TV

TV Remote got OJ spilled on it

My 78 year old mother-in-law spilled OJ on her remote while at the nursing home. I do not know how long it was on before her aide came and plucked out the batteries, but it probably wasn't more than a few minutes. I'm sure she was on the "call button" as soon as it happened, that TV is her lifeline to the world.
I cracked it open, cleaned up the dampened guts and put a fresh set of batteries in it when I put the assembly back together. I've had luck with this type of fix in the past, but this time not so. I checked the LED with my digital output.
There was some furry corrosion on a couple of the resistors and across a couple of the pins on the IC. I'm supposing that while wet, the OJ had enough of an electrolytic effect to induce a short circuit at such a current level that it fried something. I'm not going to chase down the PCBA with a voltmeter, it isn't worth my time. I just want something plausible to tell her.

I can get an OEM replacement but it will take time on eBay. I do not want to get one of those universal remotes with 50 buttons, heck, 20 buttons is about 10 times more than she can manage already.

Your thoughts? (ok if there's a few chuckles on this one gang)

I went to Wal-mart and spent $7.68 plus tax on a RCA Universal remote RCR312W. I'm taking it over to the nursing home and spending my visit there programming the codes.

The nursing home my mother is in has a Toshiba 13A24 TV in ;her room. The can't find the remote and I wanted to get her a universal and be able to set it up for her What do you advise

Hello, a Universal remote should have the codes already set for the Toshiba so it shouldnt be too hard, just follow the instructions. Just remember that some of the cheaper remotes dont have all the make sure you get a good quality one,she deserves it!

Closed Caption Durabrand #1091A

Unless you can get at closed-caption settings from the front-panel menu buttons, you're out of luck. Many TVs have this problem. Without the original remote you don't have access to all functions.

Sorry there isn't a more hopeful answer.
