Thank you for posting your question on Just Answer! I will be happy to help you with this problem. Can you please give us some more information so I can better answer your questions.

-Can you double check the model number for the television? (this can be found on the back of the unit)
-How old is the unit?

Please give me this information and I will be happy to assist you further.

Thank you,

The model is TDAC-02212
Serial #- TDAV02212110444133
I bought it one week ago and have not yet even plugged it in....
It is for a rental unit and I don't want to take it there until I have a control device that will work with the television/DVD!
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 5 years ago.
Sorry I cannot find a remote for that model at all, I will opt out and see if any other experts have info on this one.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
How will I know if another expert can help?
ARen't there at least codes for Poloroid that would let me use a universal remote?
If so, where can I find them?
Expert:  bluextc89 replied 5 years ago.
Thanks for stopping by.
The TDAC-02212 was a model sold exclusively by HSN with ULTRA low availability.

They list the following remote control codes ONLY for cable service providers:

Remote CodesThis is a list of Polaroid codes for the most common cable and satellite providers. Use the Polaroid code associated with your provider.
  • Direct TV - 0178, 11523, 10178 or 10150
  • Time Warner Cable - 0178
  • Comcast - 0178
  • Dish Network - 627 or 657
Finding a spare remote is going to be a needle-in the haystach find... as they just aren't produced. Before purchasing a new all-in-one remote - be sure it has the ability to transmit Polaroid IR codes... the majority do NOT.

If you have additional - Just Ask.

I actually bought my television from Target, and in a brick and mortar store, not online. Interesting. I will try your advice with the remote codes. Thank you!
[I was out of town so couldn't reply until now, sorry.]
Expert:  bluextc89 replied 5 years ago.
They may have continued the line - or Target purchased the remaining sets at a substantial savings.
