It is time for a warning, but not because of the interruption. If they play the ball without making a call, then the serve was "in" (regardless of what you thought) and the point is on. If they then catch the ball and say "oh that was out", tell them you need them to make a call immediately if a serve is out and if they catch another live ball you are taking they point.
