Samsung TV requires a remote to perform any action. You will have to sync your Samsung remote to your TV before performing any operation, especially for the first time. You may also want to connect your Samsung remote to the TV after a hard reset. After completing a hard reset, your remote turns out to be a new one with the default settings.
