Ua24h4003armxl All Samsung Android phones can be simply connected to your LED television monitor by connecting it with a HDMI cable. HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, which means audio and video can be run at the same time through the cable. The Samsung company calls the ability of the television to do this its ConnectShare Transfer feature.

There are two dedicated HDMI ports on your Samsung LED model 4100 that will allow you to accept the cable. Images will work best if it is in Film Mode as it sets the television to automatically process signals from all image and video sources and automatically adjust the picture for optimum viewing.

LED televisions manufactured in the last two decades will have an inbuilt port for an HDMI cable, such as the one you will be able to connect from your Android cable. All Androids have outgoing port at the base of the phone, (the same port that you use to charge the phone), that allows you to connect it to your television.

That is because you need a Smart Adapter for your device if you do not have an HDMI port on the device. This will allow you to connect the device to your TV/Stereo by connecting the HDMI cable to a mini USB port in your device.

Is there another slot other than the charger port to put the HDMI cable, or do I connect it in the charger port?

I have connected the HDMI cable to my phone through the only slot there is (charger port) but nothing seems to happen when connected. Should something pop up in my phone when it's connected?. I have tried: I have connected both HDMI cables from the TV and Android phone, but nothing happens. I have downloaded a app called Jensen HDMI/MHL to try and fix this issue.. I think it was caused by: I'm not sure, I expected that if I connected my phone and TV through the HDMI cable it would transfer to the screen. (Like when I connected my laptop to the same TV through a different HDMI cable.)

You first have to set up the Screen Mirroring option on your Android phone. Turn On Screen Mirroring on Samsung Galaxy S4 and Share Your Phone's Screen to the TV is a VisiHow article that explains screen mirroring. The Jensen app only supports Jensen Models VX4012, VX4022, DMX5022, VX7012, and VX7022 Models with HDMI/MHL capability so unless you have one of these models that has built in Bluetooth for the screen mirroring option or your device supports screen mirroring, you will not be able to connect the device with just the Jensen app.

My phone is broken and I want to get all my media files off of it. But my TV does not have HDMI?

I need to access my photos and videos off my Galaxy S4

You may be able to do the transfer through [www.samsung.com/ca/kies/ Samsung Kies]. Because you did not describe how your phone is broken, I can't assist you much further. The Kies option should work if you can at least turn your Galaxy S4 on to pair to your PC.

I am trying to hook my tablet to my TV for Netflix. I have the HDMI cable connected to both and getting a message on the TV saying retrieving data and then nothing happens?

HDMI cable is connected to tablet and TV. I am on HDMI 1 on TV. It says retrieving data and then nothing happens, I am hooking up Netflix. What is wrong. I have tried: Switching back and forth to HDMI 1 and 2. I think it was caused by: Don't know

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Have you connected other devices to these ports with the HDMI cable recently? Perhaps the HDMI cable or ports are damaged. Otherwise Restart your tablet and see if the TV recognizes the device. You did not state if your TV was a Smart TV or the brand of tablet but this is the best option to resolve your situation. It is most likely your HDMI cable.

Hi, I have a Android phone and my TV isn't a smart TV but has the HDMI port at the back. The HDMI cable I bought has one end for the TV and the other is for my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy A3) I can't seem to see anything on my TV when I connect these.I have chosen the option on my TV as HDMI source but the TV screens blank. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong, my TV make is Lexsor. I have tried: Connecting the HDMI cable to my phone and the other end to the HDMI port at the back of the TV. Iv also went into the TV menu and chose "HDMI SOURCE". I think it was caused by: I Don't know what I'm doing wrong or if I need a smart TV. Which mines isn't but it's got the HDMI port so it should work

You will still need to enable your Mirrorcast on the Galaxy A3 and make sure that your adapter is a Smart Adapter that displays audio and video. With the Smart Adapters you still need an additional HDMI cable as explained in an above answer.

I'm looking to get a new phone. How do you tell (or what specs to look for) to see if you can tether a phone to a TV. For example: the ZTE Zmax Pro's USB does not support display. I also heard that the Samsung Galaxy On5 does support display.
