What lead do I need to connect Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 to TV?

Ad

Actually, any standard HDMI lead cable will work to connect your Samsung Tab 2 to your TV. For it to screen mirror with your Samsung TV you must have the 10.1-inch screen version. A Galaxy Tab 2 seven-inch model does not support HDMI. The connection must be with the correct adapter, and that is another catch. To properly connect with the standard HDMI lead requires five steps.

  • The HDMI cable must be securely connected into your TV monitor.
  • The adapter must be securely connected to your adapter.
  • The adapter for the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 2 must be plugged into the port at the bottom of your Tablet.
  • Note that you must also have your charger plugged into the back of your adapter. This is essential so that you have power for your Tab 2.
  • One thoughtful feature by Samsung is that your Tab 2 will let you know once you are connected with all units. There will be a "Ding" sound.
  • Once all connections are made, you will be able to display whatever is on your Tablet onto your TV.
  • Although any HDMI lead will suffice, as mentioned in a section above, the quality varies considerably. This will affect your reception, at least slightly. The adapter for the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 2 must be plugged into the port at the bottom with your charger. Also, the adapter cannot be just any adapter. First of all, the Galaxy Tab 2 is one of two types. There is one with a 10-inch screen, and one with a seven-inch screen. The larger version is more versatile.

You are going to need to purchase a chord called a Micro HDMI chord which will fit into your device as well as into the back of the TV.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 supports HDMI cable. We have the instructions above on how to use HDMI cable with your Galaxy Tab 2. The instructions also include pictures for your reference.

Depending on which series Galaxy Tab 2 you have, you can use Samsung's original MHL to HDMI adapter, as seen here:

http://www.amazon.com/Original-Samsung-Genuine-Adapter-1080P/dp/B00B8NJ6E4

This adapter will work with the 8 and 10 inch versions of the Galaxy tab and not the 7 inch.

I have a Samsung Galaxy tab 2 hooked to my hot properly, but nothing. I think I am reading that this device does not have the software to output the TV signal regardless of the physical connection. Is this the case?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is very much able to output its screen to a supporting TV. Take note that your TV must support HDMI, not just any normal which I think is your case. If you have the right accessories (cable) and the right knowledge (read through this article), you should be able to mirror your Tab 2's screen to your TV. When you buy a TV, see to it that the TV supports HDMI. If you want to be sure, bring your Tab 2 and the cable to try if they are compatible.

Make sure that the cable (HDMI) is compatible with your Tablet. There are some instances that it will not work on other devices. You will also need to enable TV output on your Tablet (this is under settings>more). It is also possible that you will need a converter for the cable.

I have a Samsung Galaxy tab 3 and want to know how to connect it to the TV, using a HDMI cable adapter, I have tried and nothing happens

Make sure that your devices are actually compatible. Usually, with the HDMI cable adapter, it should be able to work properly. Check whether you are actually using the right ports. It will help if you will restart both the TV and the Tablet to refresh their system accordingly.

I need to go on the internet when I'm out and about so can I get a mini USB to normal USB converter so I can use it on my Samsung Galaxy tab 3 to plug in my internet dongle

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (WiFi only) is not capable of connecting to the internet using a 3G Dongle or the USB internet dongle.

So, even if you can buy the converter or adapter for your Tablet, you will not be able to connect that USB dongle into your Tablet.

You can insert it but it will not work.
