How can I connect my Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini to my LG TV?

Hi, can you tell me if I can connect my Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini to my LG TV please?

Yes, you can connect your Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini to your LG TV as long as it is either a Smart TV or it has HDMI connections. If your LG is a Smart TV, you may be able to stream to your TV without having to purchase any additional hardware. Open your phone's YouTube app and make sure both your TV and your phone are on the same WiFi network. If you see a TV icon in the upper right-hand corner of the application, you will be able to connect your devices without purchasing additional hardware. Simply follow the rest of the instructions in the VisiHow article below to learn how to turn screen mirroring and sharing on for your Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. If the YouTube app does not show the TV icon, though, you will need to purchase additional hardware to connect your phone to your television. You can use the recommendations in the article below; however, if you want to spend a small amount of money for something that works very well with minimal setup, you can purchase the Google Chromecast and download the Google Chromecast application to easily connect your Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini to your LG TV.

You can speak into the S Voice and walk it through the process such as stating Screen Mirror first into the phone. It should connect if you previously set it up in the past before your screen broke.

Screen Mirror Samsung Galaxy 10.5?

Hi, I need to know how can I screen mirror Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 with wireless and simultaneous connect to a mobile wireless router to stream content/application?

I cannot understand how will a device interface over 1 WiFi (direct, in case of TV) and another wireless router ?

You will need an AllShare cast dongle. The WiFi that you connect to should be the same on the tablet as it is for your TV if you enable the WiFi there. For instance," My Home" would be the name you assigned to your router and the TV should also be on that and not "Guest".

Go into Settings to About Phone and see if there is a new update. Samsung released a patch for your exact issue (OTA): I9195XXUCPA1. Also, disable the Samsung Link and then enable it again. Go into Settings and see if there is an available update for this in the Applications Manager. Then perform the steps for a hard reset but instead of wiping your data you will choose Wipe Cache Partition. Reboot the phone and everything should work again.

You will need an MHL cable and then use the LG Magic Remote to screen mirror with your S4 mini. Follow the process in the VisiHow article on this page to set it all up for the first time.

Galaxy 6 Android to Samsung smart TV, screen mirror is EASY but muted?

No sound Galaxy 6 Android to Samsung smart TV, screen mirror is EASY but muted

Settings>System>Accessories>Dock>Audio Output Mode "Use external speakers when device is docked" should be the solution for you although your HDMI cable may be faulty. Some music apps will also mute the sound when a video is playing to Force Stop any you have before connecting your HDMI cable and phone. The video needs to be Mp4 quality as well. Enable your Samsung Link on both the phone and TV before you connect again.

You will need the AllShare dongle because your TV is not a Smart TV. Although it has AllShare as an option this is for easier setup when Screen Mirroring. You will still need the MHL cable.

Hi, trying to screen mirror my Samsung tab 10.1 to my TV?

I am using Belkin Miracast video adapter, the screen will come on the big screen but the sound is blurry

Your sound and video are not in sync. Sometimes, pausing for a few minutes lets the buffering catch up so that everything is in sync again.

Try the Audio Output in docking mode suggestion. Although you are not docking your phone, this usually resolves the issue. You also should use an app like Screen Stream if your sound is still not fixed after you change the settings.

The 60 Hz on the S4 mini is a failure and you will need a 2.0 Smart Adapter dongle. While the former works on the Xperia, the S4 requires an 11 pin dongle and some need to be charged while working which the S4 may be not charging the dongle or supplying power.
