Just bought a new smart tv how do I configure it to get the tv programming

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?

Samsung

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

It gives me a selections HDMI 1 AV Component

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your Samsung? What happened right before this?

Just now, would you be able to see my account if how many am allowed to have TV hooked up?
