Have you changed the mic level from automatic to manual? While I saw no mute function in the manual I did see where you can change the mic level from automatic to manual thus allowing you to adjust or turn the recording level down. This may not be the ideal solution but may be one worth testing. Look on pages 232 and 234 of the Instruction Manual.
