Back up your data and do a factory reset. You will lose all data but this usually will fix this issue.

    I was hoping to not have to do that. I don't know how to back up this phone's data (didn't know I could). It's an old phone, probably 8 years old... I pulled the battery & it didn't help. When I hold the mute button & get the unmute to come up, how do I make it stay? The green arrow checks UNmute but it goes away & the red mute comes back on in the lower left corner of the screen & of course I can't hear anything. When the mute button is held & I press options it takes me to another area unrelated to the mute feature. I have no idea what triggered this miserable thing since it can only be turned on during a call & I never knew it was there!
    I simply answered my phone & it was on mute!

    Some people have had success putting their phone in a bag of rice for several days with battery out without turning it on. For some this works but it is usually only temporary. Plan on getting a new phone and transferring your info even if you get it to work as your days are likely numbered. Wish I had better news but water and electronics don't mix.

    How do you mute tv but not headphones?

    Look in your TV's menu options. I have an RCA TV which allows me to turn on (or off) the headphone port and set the volume of the headphones. Once you turn the headphone volume up, then you can turn the TV Volume all the way down with your TV remote while the headphone volume remains where you set it. Hope this works for you.
