It seems that the micro-switch to turn on power is damaged. It can be replaced, and can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops. De-solder out one among them as sample, because, pin configuration should be identified when you buy it. It wont cost more, a cheap component.
These are the universal remote control codes to Vivo TV. 0004 0005 0009. Check this link to know more codes and proceedings to other brands of remote controls, and buy one remote control that has setup codes with your TV. The above said codes are for GE remote with Vivo TV.
Have the remote tested either with a tester that most shops have or in a dark room with a digital camera the display will faintly flash when remote pointed at it and buttons pressed.
Also if button does not work (power) unplug the set for a while to see if it will reset. If the tester shows same problem--no working for power or have to press ******* buttons 99% chance something got spilled onto remote and got inside
