Questions and Answers

How to connect remote screen pro top TV (Sharing File is working).

Dear Sir, I cannot connect the remote from screen pro to TV. Sharing file is working. I need your help!

I would suggest you download a different app listed on this page, as not all TVs will work with the Android TCL nScreen Pro app. Some users have experienced problems with certain models of TCLs.

I'm using the TCL app and my TCL smart TV doesn't appear to be connected.

I think it was caused by: I don't know.

Make sure your TV and smartphone are both connected to the same WiFi wireless network. Use the setup options on your TV to verify that it is connected and it has a strong connection.

My TCL Roku TV does not connect to my phone.

My TCL Roku TV does not connect to my phone. The app doesn't connect to my Samsung phone using the TCL nscreen app. The TV and phone are on the same WiFi network. I have tried: Tried to connect several times it connects to the Roku app, but not the TCL app. I think it was caused by: No idea. I wonder if my TCL/Roku TV is compatible with the TCL nscreen app

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

You may want to try another app listed since the screen app may not be compatible with your model of TCL. The other idea is for you to try another app from the Google or Apple app store that is more of a universal remote control.

How do I track my stolen digital TCL TV 32, model no.32B2700s, serial no.0235?

How do I track my stolen digital TCL TV 32, model no.32B2700s, serial no.0235. I have tried: To find a GPRS solution. I think it was caused by: Not sure

There is no way for you to track your TCL 32B2700s TV with GPS, but there is one thing you can try. If that particular model had the Netflix app installed, and you used it, that means the person who stole it may be able to watch movies with your already inputted username and password. If this is the case, the IP address of that person's Internet connection will now be seen by the Netflix company. You may be able to contact them and explain your situation seeing if they can track the new IP address of your Netflix account. You can then call the authorities and provide them with that IP address and see what they can do. This is all just theory, but it just might work to figure out where your TCL TV is.

Where is WiFi network available?

WiFi network is on the smartphone or smart TV or other devices outside. I have tried: I can't connect my smartphone to TCL 43 inch curved TV

The WiFi network that you are looking for is usually the one in your house and it is usually linked to your Internet connection. If you do not have a WiFi connection within a range of your smartphone and TCL TV, then, unfortunately, you can not remote control your TV with your smartphone with these apps.

How can I first connect my Sony TV to the internet, I don't know how?

I don't know how to connect my TV to a wireless network, please start from the bottom and explain. I have tried: Have tried searching for wireless network for about 30 minutes now but to no avail

It looks as if you are accessing the correct setup screen on your TCL but the wireless signal is not being found. There are a number of things that could be contributing to this problem, such as nearby interference by another device, your SSID being hidden on your router or your router broadcasting a different frequency of signal. Anyways, that's all too technical to get into here, but here's something you can try. On the back of your TCL TV there should be a network port. Get yourself an Ethernet cable and plug one end into that port on the back of your TCL. Take the other end and plug it into one of the empty ports on the back of your router. Yes, I understand that it could be a rather lengthy cable, but you can always bring it back to the store after you're done. This hardwired connection should give you the ability to see where the problem might lie... if it works, then something is wrong with your WiFi and you should reboot your router and try again. If this test does not work, then you have bigger problems because then the TCL may have an issue.

Connection to TV is not happening, how do I know the TV is talking to my mobile?

I have the app, the phone is trying to connect to TV, they are both on the same network, I go to the wireless connection page, on my phone, it shows different names to what is displayed on my phone. I try to connect, it says on my phone that it has, how do I know on my screen it has connected. It is not thorough enough, please answer my question

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

What you're probably seeing on the wireless connection page are all the other WiFi networks in your area. Find your WiFi connection name and connect the TCL TV to it. Then, on your mobile (I assume you are already connected to your WiFi network) download the proper remote control app and search for your TCL in that app. If the TV and mobile are on the same WiFi, your mobile app should see your TV and connect to it.
