Galaxy S5 :: Why Cannot Use Screen Mirroring On Samsung Phone
Apr 13, 2015
I got an s5 a little while back and just recently learned about screen mirroring and wanted to try it so I bought a new Windows display adapter and can't get it to work, my wife had an s4 and it works perfectly with her phone. Then I tried screen mirroring to my cousins phone and couldn't get that to work either, he has an s5 as well. What am I doing wrong?! I've tried everything I know to try and it's like my phone just isn't capable or something....!
It's a Samsung Galaxy S5 from AT&T.I've been having a problem screen mirroring. I can connect pretty easily but almost every time I do I see a lot of pixelating. Like, if I open up the Facebook app and screen mirror, it pixelates a lot. I can definitely see this with pictures. And videos are definitely unviewable for me.
How can I fix this? Is there a setting I should adjust on my TV, Roku 3, or Android that needs to be changed?
So I tried to mirror Galaxy S6 to Samsung ue48h6400 and I got this error in my phone "Unable to connect to screen mirroring due to hardware issue". Is there any fix for this? I heard this is due to rooting. Maybe there's some third-party app that is able to mirror my device to TV? I'm sure unrooting would fix it, but I don't want to do it.
More problems with the Z3. So in addition to no tethering ability the Xperia range doesn't screen mirror either. Tried doing it on a kindle fire stick, I have an image but no sound. Same with my friends Z1. The Samsung galaxy my friend has works fine though.
I have only recently upgraded from the Sony Xperia Z1 to the Z3+ and one of the major issues I seem to have is it will not let me mirror my screen onto my Sony Bravia TV, this always worked great with my Z1 and the TV is the same and no changes to my WiFi, I am not sure if this is an issue on all of them, but my workmate has a Z3 and he said he has the same issue. I also see the Z3+ has Cast Screen which doesn't work on my TV either, the only way I can get it to work is through YouTube or through a paid app called AllCast. Which I had on Z1 but didn't install it on Z3+ until I noticed it wouldn't let me mirror screen through phone
I left my phone on my desk for 5 minutes and when i got my it wouldnt turn on, theres no light or anything, ive tried the factory reset with no response and ive tried plugging it in and still no response. is there anything i can do to fix it?
Just recently I started getting game ads on my app lock screen and I don't know why this has happened. I downloaded the All-in-one-toolbox and the ad-detect and I was wondering when I go to the ad-detect, do I have to uninstall of the app's with ad's on them.
Is there any way of getting the actual phone numbers to show when in the "Contacts" screen instead of just the contacts name. If I want to look for a phone number, it means that I have got to click on each contact name to bring up the next screen with the phone number etc on it and then click back to the contacts screen and keep doing it all through the list of contacts.
With my old HTC Desire it used to show both right at the start.
I wanted to root my galaxy s2, i followed the instructions up till the point where i flash with odin with an insecure kernel, after reboot , the phone is now stuck on the samsung boot screen.I cant even boot into recovery modem.
A new problem has developed with my phone. It's hard to describe but it looks as if there is fluid under the screen (I don't have a screen protector btw). You can push the bubble of fluid (if that's what it is) around with your finger and see it move under the screen. Most unsettling. I'm at a complete loss to know what to do. MY PHONE AT NO TIME HAS GOT WET OR EVEN SPLASHED - I'VE KEPT IT COMPLETELY DRY. I HAVEN'T EVEN HANDLED IT WITH WET HANDS.
The problem is only visible on the home screen and it's not affecting the functionality of the phone in any way. However, it's a bad problem because now I've lost all security on my phone - it doesn't ask for a fingerprint swipe any more so anyone can immediately gain access to my phone merely by touching the bubble.
Interestingly, the problem disappears completely if I run the Samsung Galaxy S6 4G in Safe Mode.
My new galaxy s5 has the Lollipop update....my notifications don't show up on locked screen....In my settings I have it set to show up....I have did a hard reset and factory reset and it still doesn't work....
My screen is broken on my Samsung5, completely black. The phone works but I cannot see anything. I thought my contacts where synced to my gmail account but they are not there!! Can I import my contacts from my phone via computer if I cannot see the screen?
I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S5 (sm-g900f). Sometimes the screen just freeze, and grey lines appears (as in this picture goo.gl/qIdGg7 ).
The main button and the power still working, as I can see the white light turning on and off as usual after pressing them. And after click the power button once (which turn off the display), the screen remains black.
The phone is actually still working, as I can ear it ringing or receiving messages and email.
But I cant do anything, just take off the battery and restart it. I already reset it and the problem keeps happen again.
Does anyone know of how I would possibly be able to retrieve photos from my Samsung Galaxy S2 that has a non-fuctioning screen? The rest of the phone works - it charges, turns on (the 4 buttons light up as well as the light on the top) and the speakers for the ringtones and alerts works as well. I am desperate to get the pictures and am seeking all advice possible.
when I got the first lollipop Update I had an option to disable the lock screen completely on my z3 compact, ever since this recent update to fix the bugs in lollipops it only gives me the option to set a slide lock screen or PIN or password but not completely disable it so if I try to use any third party lock screen I have to first unlock the Sony one before it will go to that one.
my other issue is with the throw, screen mirroring s only once since I've had this phone have I been able to scan and have devices come up I have a smart TV and that came up but everytime I try to do it now it just says no devices found every single time
On my z2 I used screen mirroring on my Sony tv. It took I while to connect but eventually did. When using my z2 seeing the output on my tv was great only that there were delays in my input and video had lag.
This is happening now that I have the new lollipop update. As before everything was fine. Don't know if there is a solution to this or its because of the lollipop software update?
I have an LG smart tv. I mirror my work phone (Samsung Galaxy S4 mini) just fine with a hit of a button in the phone settings. I noticed that my M8 doesn't have the screen mirroring option. How to screen mirror?
I've Upgraded from sony xperia z1 to xperia z3 4 months back.I also use a Sony Bravia KLD-W900A in Living room. I used Screen Mirroring with my xpera Z1 to Bravia TV which worked without a hiccup till I replaced it with xperia z3.Whenever I Connect xperia z3 with Bravia TV It lags and also has hardtime playing videos,music or just scrool some photos. It sometimes trakes 1 seconds to just load a full photo on TV screen which never happened with my xperia z1 .
My z5 premium cant screen mirror to my bravia today , my phone and TV just showing preparing and after minutes the TV shows nothing the phone gives me the notification saying that 'screen mirroring session disconnect' , it worked well today before .
