Depending on what type of remote you get, you should be able to program it without needing the power button on your TV. The way most of them work, you type in a code on your remote and press power and if the code was the right one, your TV will turn on. If not you try a different code. I would recomend going with the Philips PM725S universal remote. You could find one for $10 online

    I just looked at the owners manual for the remote i suggested and it requires the tv to be on too. After you type in the code the red light blinks to confirm the code, then you need to press channel up, if the channel changes then no more programing is needed. If those instructions sound like your would recommend trying it out with the tv off and after pressing chanel up. try the power button. What is the brand and model number for your remote and tv. Well get this figured out.

    I don't want to lead you astray. Even with the remote i mention, you will still have to troubleshoot it. It's not a sure fix, it may be easier to figure a solution out. I just don't want you to spend more money on something that might not work.

I have a TruTech TV and just had Dish Network installed. There is no code for this brand to program the Dish remote. Is there another brand that might have a code that will work?

I tried the different Dae Woo codes (apparently, Dae Woo makes Trutech) and none of them worked. The last option was to do a Power Scan. From the Dish Network sight, with the TV on, first you press and hold the mode button for the apparatus you are trying to set up (TV in this case) until all of the mode buttons light up (about 6 seconds). 2nd, press and release the power button. 3rd, press the up button once every 1 second until the TV turns off - this took me around 120 depressions. 4th, save the code by pressing the Pound sign after the tv turns off. 5th, press the TV mode button and try pressing different function buttons, (i.e. up and down arrows, volume, off/on button).

If your TV is an LCD (flat/thin panel), then it's 19", not 20". Support for that TV is at But, if you have a Trutech tube TV, then it won't be listed on that website, and they won't be able to help you. In that case, call Target Customer Service (1.800.440.0680), and they should be able to put you in touch with the manufacturer, who can sell you a new remote control.
