    Welcome to the forums.☺

    Have you tried a Cache Partition wipe, or even, if your personal data is backed up, a Factory Reset?

    Very strange, since that's the only thing mirroring is supposed to work with on a Samsung phone, a Samsung TV. (The rest of us have to buy Chromecast to mirror.) I'd first (if you're in the US) go to Best Buy and find the Samsung Experience desk and ask them for help. (It's possible that the update glitched just in the mirroring firmware - they can reflash it for you.) If they can't help you, they probably have the phone number of Samsung's real tech support (not the people who type the question into a computer and read you the answer), and they (Samsung) should be interested that they broke one of their advertising points. They won't sell a lot of TVs if updating your Samsung phone makes it just another TV.

    Hi,

    I also have the same problem. Samsung S4 Mini... Before kitkat screen mirroring worked fine... I used every single day... after received the kitkat update never worked again... i am able to connect to the samsung smart tv but after a couple of seconds I receive an error on the mobile saying that it;s not possible to share via screen mirroring and exits....
    I also did the reset factory and clear cache but no joy.
    Did you had any feedback from samsung tech support?

    Mobile: Samsung S4 Mini I9195
    TV: Samsung SmartTV 42"

    Spent one hour on land line phone with Samsung tech support this morning only to be told, that i will have to send in my S4 mini to to be repaired as they think it's a fault with the S4 mini , and as of 11 am this morning they had 5 complaint calls about the lack/loss of mirroring with Samsung TV 's.

    I don't think is a fault with the samsung s4 mini... before the kitkat upgrade worked fine... it's a fault with the kitkat upgrade not the mobile...
    So they release a new firmware, people like us press the button to upgrade, then the screen mirroring stops working and the fault is with the mobile? Does't make any sense... if it was working before the upgrade was the upgrade that made the fault not the mobile...
    I also call samsung but i just give up when they forward my call to the tv support saying that i needed to reset my tv.... waste of time...

    That is what i said to tech guy it doesn't make any sense ,as all worked fine before the upgrade to kitkat 4.4.2 (tech guy has simply passed the problem to someone else)

    Amazing... the goal or deploying new software is to improve things not to break... Let me know if you find any solution... I will do the same if I find any workaround to the problem....

    I have a note 4 and it will only mirror pictures and apps to my vizio smart tv but none of the movies I have on my phone. In fact it wont even give the option to mirror.

    Mirroring on a Samsung phone ONLY mirrors to a Samsung smart TV. For any other TV brand (I have a Vizio too) use Chromecast. Mirroe the phone to the Chromecast device, then run any app you want - it'll be on the TV.

    I sent mobile to be repaired (as told to do by tech guy) they sent it back saying all phone updates software Done.But guess what mirroring still not working,have had to send phone back to be checked ,but this time i wrote in English and Spanish that the android KitKat4.4.2 has a bug/glitch when using the S4 mini after update why Spanish you ask., when i got the mobile back everything was in Spanish.

    Same problem here. After fail, phone also becomes hot and battery starts draining fast unless you reboot.
    Seems impossible to be a hardware issue - has to be firmware - so why does it need service at Samsung?

    Has to be a 4.4.2 issue, as screen mirroring will no longer work on my Sprint Samsung Galaxy G3 and my Samsung Smartv. Everything else works - YouTube, media files form my G3 to my Sammy TV works perfectly. Just no more screen mirroring.

    Any update on this? I have the same issue and just spent the day trying a soft reset and reinstalling all of my accounts. No Luck.

    Exactly the same - Chromecast doesn't give you the same Mirror and the Samsung screen mirror did in the past. Bloody annoyed - Mirror was the reason I bought a Samsung phone and SS Smart TV!
