Yes, there is.
When Speaker Select is set to External Speaker, the
volume and MUTE buttons will not operate and the
sound settings will be limited.
When Speaker Select is set to TV Speaker your TV's volume button will control both the amp and the TV's speaker volume
Example - TV Speaker: On , External Speaker: On --both will be adjustable with the TV remote.
That is the way that Samsung built this TV set.
To access this setting --
Select the Menu button, move the arrow down to highlight the SOUND icon, press the enter button.
Press the arrow down button to select Speaker Select -- press enter, then select TV speaker, and press enter.
You will now be able to adjust the speaker's volume with the TV's volume control.
Tips are greatly appreciated !
I guess Samsung's instructions are incorrect then.
These external speakers -- are they connected to an amplifier or are they speakers with the amp built into it?
They have to be one or the other for you to get sound to the speakers. The TV isn't providing the amplification.
So really all you got is two RCA plugs hanging out where the TV goes, and plugging them in has been a disappointment with the Samsung, right? Is it LOUD at least?
Got the Answer for you...Sony Builds TV sets that allow you to turn off the TV speakers and have ADJUSTABLE Audio. That's the Answer that will FIT your needs.
We could sit here all day and WISH Samsung would work like a Sony does...but the reality is Sony fits your needs. Anything else is jury-rigging. That's my answer.
If you have any questions, just ask
I guess I'm not satisfied with your answer. In fact I'm a little put off by your tone. You expect me to go and buy a new tv just to solve the problem? Maybe you can afford it, but not me. I bought the Samsung because Sony, to my knowledge and from all my shopping around, does not make an LED LCD (thin profile) which I need because of the room limitations in the RV. I needed a solution to my current question and the one you provided does not meet my expectations.
Thanks for trying.
Of course you're not satisfied, who would be. You want your Samsung to work the way you want it to, and my solution doesn't fit your need.
Actually it does, Sony makes a TV set with the circuitry that will do EXACTLY what you want it to do. Samsung doesn't make it on that model.
Tell me, did you have a Thin Profile TV set in your RV before you got the Samsung? How could you, this is the First Year they've been made.
You can't afford it? You OWN an RV.
Look, I can't make you accept my answer, but your not going to be happy with the Samsung when you expect it to have an adjustable volume output on the back of it.
Anything else I suggest is going to be a substandard setup, and I will not suggest anything of that sort.
Now you did state you "just installed" that TV set, I have to assume you "just bought it".
And if you did, you can certainly take it back to the store you purchased it at, and upgrade. Sony isn't that much more costly, and it will do what you want it to do.
Thin profile shouldn't be that much of a deal breaker...you're only talking about the difference of one inch to 3 inches thick.
And yes, Sony makes them if they are a deal breaker.
Listen, my Dad told me years ago to never buy a car you won't be happy with...he was right. I learned my lesson the hard way, and all I can do is pass on that to you. What you do is your choice, all I can do is suggest the solution.
You're welcome. Sorry Samsung doesn't do what you want it to do.
