Access the Settings menu on the TV

A Samsung TV in the living room

Whether you prefer watching loud action movies or suspenseful dramas, there are several different settings that can make your TV just right for you. Once you learn about the available visual and sound settings, you'll always have the best TV viewing experience.

Access the Settings menu

When you want to adjust the picture mode and size, or sound options on your TV, just head over to the Settings menu.

From the Home screen, use the directional pad on your TV remote to navigate to and select Settings. From here, select and adjust your desired options.

Here is a list of all the different settings and options you change on your TV:

General Settings on the TV
  • Picture: Adjust the viewing mode, picture size, and Expert Settings like Backlight and Brightness.

  • Sound: Set the sound output source, change the sound mode for optimized audio, and fine-tune settings like Balance and Equalizer.

  • Broadcasting: Scan for channels using Auto Program, and set up parental controls by locking content based on its rating.

  • General: Access Network and Accessibility settings, as well as general settings like the time, the language, or your Samsung account. Also, if you are looking for Closed Captions, those settings can be found here under General > Accessibility > Caption Settings

  • Support: Check for software updates and request support, or use support features like Remote Management to solve issues on your TV. You can also access the e-manual.

If you notice that any settings are grayed out, there is generally a reason for why they are greyed out. Check out our guide for some additional information.
