I have an old Mitsubishi Tv and the remote control does not work.

Can I use any universal remote control to add the stations or it has

That's what makes them universal, but otoh, special keys on the
original remote may not be duplicated on universals. If this ever or
often affects the Menu command, I don't know.
I do have a tv, different brand but I forget which, which came without
a remote, and the yard sale. Eventually I was using 2 or even 3
remotes depending on which function I wanted to control . After that,
I found one remote by the maker of the tv that controlled everything,
except for Menu. This may have nothing to do with your situation,
but it's somewhat similar.
Discovered this myself yesterday when we had a power outage and TV
defaults were set on re-powering and I needed to switch from normal TV
to CATV using a new universal remote. Fortunately the set itself had
the button on it.
First you'll have to decide which part is bad. remote hand held or the
sensor on the TV set. If hand held part is bad, you'll have to find a
universal one which already has your TV set on the compatibility list.
You can't make any universal remote to learn yours 'cause it is dead.
Also I know there is a place you can buy a specific remote(guranteeed to
work) on-line. I once found a high end Denon micro audio system original
remote from them. Price was not bad. They were either in Oregon or
