Trying the above suggestions should get your Samsung TV to control the volume.

Samsung TV Clear Memory

Another issue is the problem could be too many downloaded apps. These apps take up memory and cause the TV to have issues. To fix this issue perform a reset on the TV (Settings > Support > Self Diagnosis > Reset), followed by an initial setup (Settings > General > Initial Setup), then log back into your Samsung account on the TV. Then you will need to get access to the Smart TV Apps function. Check any downloaded apps and remove any of them that have downloaded automatically. Delete every app except the ones you regularly use. This will clear out the unused apps and free up needed memory for the TV to function faster and perform functions as designed. Following the above will keep it so the TV has extra memory remaining. After performing a RESET and REMOVING APPS that are not needed or used, try the remote and volume control, the TV should now operate normally.
