Re: tv on standby
The Television may be faulty, but without reading the manual I can't say for sure. If you want to risk spend some money to find out, here is a link to a website selling the remote control you require for the GF70-600 TV. I've not had any dealings with the company but you could always contact them to check your buying an original (OEM*) Grundig remote before you buy one.

I can't find the GF70 manual but hopefull below could provide some clue to your problem
The original key # is 0000
This is new model of grundig and should be using the same method on the lock key. Refer page 22 of 42...
Will dig out my old datasheet folder . this might take sometimes...
Hope this helps...
Generally the power button has to be on first to put the TV in standby mode. If you cant do this no remote can ever work. Remotes are not capable of turning on a set that has no power mechanically turned off. and that is what the master switch does. once that standby light is off it is not live and consuming power and not under the control of a remote anymore
some times on the universal remote ther are more then 1 code that will work with your tv. some codes will only do some things try all the codes on the remote for that brand. you should find one that works for you with 3 remotes you have a better chance of getting the right one hope this helps you
Swich off tv from main swicher. Press i on remote control and hold it. Swicn on the tv from main swicher. On the screen should appear a service menu. Under decoder level with volume button from remote change from off to on. The same is with hotel mode for volume control. Exit the service menu by presing i on remote control and have a nice day!
If you can not turn on TV set with the power button on the TV its not a standby problem as this would by pass the standby. Theres most likly, on a set of this age, top have a poiwer regulator problem and is going to need a trained tech to assist you in this repair.
