Samsung LN19A330J1D TV buttons on monitor don't work

Brand new TVm just out of the  oox but the buttons on the left side of the monitor don't do anything.  Shouldn't they work just work?  Have to use the remote to turn tv on and off.  Manual doesn't address this.  Do I need to flip a switch or something to activate these?

You may have to enable them within the menu as these type of TV's are often used in Hotels and Hospitals and what not. Disabling the buttons on the TV prevents customers from messing with the settings of the tv and allows the business to use whatever custom remote they prefer. Check the on screen menu and look carefully through the options, you should find it there.

I have a old CRT Proview monitor. It has developed a problem of exceeding display sidways, means the display from left and right side of screen goes beyond, I have adjust manually left and right to view...

Well, if the adjustment buttons don't work, then probably the control unit in the monitor is broken, or a key is stuck. If the control unit needs servicing, I doubt if it's feasible to have it repaired, given the fact that it's an old monitor and new or used nice slim LCD monitors can be purchased cheaply nowadays.

How to connect?no instructions

ok maybe this will help.
make sure the video and audio are in the right place... setup:
  O OOX yellow OOX white OOX red OOO OOO
then turn device on (dvd/vcr) and on the remote press input button at the very top. this would set your device to video one screen, and you can watch whatever it is that you hooked up.
for cable or antenna hook that up then press reset button on remote ( bottom right hand side)
