Smart remote

Why can't I pair my smart remote with my 55" uhd curved Samsung tv .
This is the third one I've had and this one is brand new.

The model number for the tv is ue55hu7100u
The model number for remote is rmctpj1ap2
To pair it it says to press the return/exit button and the extra button together for 5 seconds.
When I do this I get a little box in left bottom of screen with bluetooth sign with green dots from each side then goes to a red X through it and pic of keyboard with little bubble with word pair

could not find anything

I spent some time trying to find more info about the remote. Could not find anything other than discontinue, no longer available and other similar statements. Makes me wonder if it is even compatible with your tv.
