Samsung L40a450 lcd tv - noise when I turn on the receiver

by msherlaw / February 27, 2009 9:03 PM PST

I have a Samsung LN40a450 lcd tv and when I turn on the receiver for my speakers, the tv makes a horrible nosie. If I turn on the mute button then you have the mute symbol in the middle of the screen during the movie. Only solution I found is to turn the volume on the TV down to 0.

any other solution?

You can mute the television speakers altogether. With your remote, press:

Menu > Sound > TV Speaker > Off

This will allow no sound from the television, and won't display the speaker mute icon. If you need more help, the instructions are available (with pictures) on page 38.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
