samsung pn51e550 plasma smart tv remote

the TV is displaying "not available" when trying to us the remote. I've tried changing batteries in remote and putting the remove very close to the TV receiver and they don't do anything - tv says "not available" in the bottom left hand corner (where the remote connection is located) red light blinks and then display the message.
