- Could you please get me the complete model number written on back cover or side panel of TV?

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Thanks for TV model number info.

It seems TV remote isn't paired with the TV, please find Return and Pause/Play button on TV remote, point it at the remote control sensor of the TV, and then press and hold the Return and Play/Pause buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds or more, TV will display paired confirmation message. Release the buttons and try Home button on remote.

Does it work now?

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Buttons on remote would be labeled as Return and Extra as there are few different type of remotes used now a days.

Please check following image for pairing instructions of remote.
