How to UNMUTE a SINGLE CHANNEL? This is a flat panel Samsung

How to UNMUTE a SINGLE CHANNEL? This is a flat panel Samsung TV purchased within the last 5 years. I have previously not known that a single channel could be programmed to be muted but apparently, that is what has accidentally happened to this channel when probably the wrong sequence of buttons was pressed on the remote in the dark of the night.

Somehow, one channel got programmed mistakenly to be muted. How to UNMUTE that channel or eliminate whatever programming got mistakenly entered into the system via remote for that channel?
