This is a glitch with the Oculus software. I ended up having to uninstall the Oculus apps and redownload them again, and the problem fixed for me. (Side note, this only happened when my Note 5 got the Marshmallow update)

Without sounding like a ******. You are tapping the touchpad to begin right? Only asking as you said no matter how long I look at it.
Also if Krisguys fix doesn't work do you have a controller to pair with as if tapping a button works, you may have a faulty touchpad
