Screen mirroring (Miracast) does not work for Samsung Galaxy S5 mini on Sony KDL-55W905A TV

Dear community,
 
I have a problem with screen mirroring feature on my Samsung Galaxy S5 mini (model SM-G800F). When I activate that function, it refuses to connect to my Sony TV. I believe the problem is in Samsung Galaxy S5, because for two other phones (Samsung Galaxy S10 and Nokia 7 Plus) screen mirroring works smoothly.

Is this a known problem? Are there any solutions? Does this mobile work for other TVs?
Thanks in advance!

@dma_k: Are the S5 and Television both registered to the same Wi-Fi network? The error message in the screenshot provided above states that a hardware issue is preventing the connection. With this in mind I recommend visiting a Samsung Support Centre where an engineer can inspect the device for you. To find your nearest one please check the following link, select 'Mobile Device' and enter your post code.

If the phone is over 24 months old, or the issue is deemed to be the result of physical/liquid damage, then a charge will be applicable to cover the cost of the service.

Correct me if I am wrong but (from Miracast wikipedia):

Miracast employs the peer-to-peer Wi-Fi Direct standard

which means that TV creates a WiFi network and mobile connects to it. Hence your question concerning same Wi-Fi network is not applicable, because by nature both devices are the in the same network.

 

WiFi in Samsung Galaxy S5 works fine, as well as Access Point function. What do you suspect is malfunctionaing from hardware perspective?

 

I have tried the function with another S5 phone and it also fails. The probability that two phones have aquired the same hardware problem is low, hence I am not convinced that brining them for hardware inspection will help. Both are model SM-G800F running Android: 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) but different firmwares:

  1. Firmware: MMB29K.G800FXXU1CRB1
  2. Firmware: MMB29K.G800FXXU1CPL1

I wonder if Samsung Galaxy S5 is known to work with screen mirroring in early Sony Bravia TVs (year 2013) :

  • KDL-nnW605A
  • KDL-nnW805A
  • KDL-nnW905A
  • KDL-nnX9005

?
