Hi,

 

I'm on Android 10 and cannot screen mirror to my tv. I've a Samsung 8 series tu8500 class 55 inch. 

 

All is connected on same wifi. Phone is registered on TV. This is what I see when I try to connect from my phone.

have you made sure you've turned on a smart feature from your TV

for example I had this problem not too long ago but then I hadn't realised that I needed screen mirroring on my lg tv which fixed the problem

there's different types of screen sharing apps on different tv's. make sure yours is on or else it won't work

I had a similar problem on my S9+. Mirroring used to work brilliantly with the old Samsung Connect app (which I had on my S7).

I found that uninstalling the SmartThings app from my S9+ solved it.

Don't know why, but the ST app was blocking the Mirror function for my TV - as in, it would get to the same connect screen as you, but then both devices (on same Wi-Fi network) would say 'connection failed'. Every time.

I was able to cast photos to my TV, or videos, but never my screen.

Mirroring now works flawlessly - I press the 'SmartView' Quick Settings toggle, and my phone mirrors to my TV.

It does mean you have to do without SmartThings, but I've personally found it's less hassle without it installed.

Hey, there's no app called screen share for Samsung new models. It's in built on the TV's it seems
