Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.

I need to gather some more information from you in order to help. You may also see requests for phone support. That is the site sending you those, not me.

Do you have the TV playing audio through a sound system or are you using the Samsung's internal speakers?

Let me know.
