How to Remove the Mute Warning on a Samsung TV

If your Samsung TV is connected to a home theater system, you probably want to use the external speakers for sound. External speakers give better sound quality than the TV's internal speakers. If you use the mute button to silence the speakers, the TV will display a icon or message on the screen warning you that the sound is muted. If you want to mute the sound without the warning temporarily, just turn down the volume. To mute the sound long term, disable the internal speaker through the TV's menu.

Press the "MENU" button on the remote to display the main menu on your Samsung TV.

Step

Highlight "SOUND" using the directional buttons.

Step

Press the "ENTER" button.

Step

Highlight "Speaker Select," and set it to "External Speaker."

Step

Press the "EXIT" button to exit the menu.
