    This week, my Galaxy s5 updated to Marshmallow. Now, my screen mirroring will not work.

    I have a ActionTec ScreenBeam Mini2 that has been working great. I plugged it in to my TV, hit screen mirror or Quickconnect on my Galaxy, and Presto!

    Now, my Galaxy recognizes it, the TV says connecting, and then nothing. My phones says failed connection via screen mirroring. I have tried Quickconnect. I tried downloading a "screen mirroring fix". I tried downloading ActionTec app. All that did was update the device...

    is there a fix???

    This worked for me. To cache wipe, power phone off. Then with phone off, simultaneously hold down the following: up volume rocker, home button, and power button. Then follow the prompts to wipe the cache.

    I also have the same problem with my Galaxy s5 and my lg smart TV. Previous to the last marshmallow update, it worked perfectly fine, now unable to connect via screen sharing pops up everytime. This issue has absolutely nothing to do with wiping my cache, so please do not suggest that. Any helpful advice would be appreciated.

    I had the same issue and the solution is this:

    First you need to have the device rooted

    Go to device/system/build.prop

    edit the file and add the following line

    wlan.wfd.hdcp=disable

    save the file

    Restart device and try the screen mirroring, it should be fixed.

    Hi guys,

    New to the forum, you may be able to help me. I just got my mum a new Samsung Tab S2 9.7" 64g to watch movies on her Rv and search the net. I got a HDMI cable and micro USB converter to HDMI module. It won't show the picture on her non smart tv Sony 46". Apparently the latest s2 has android 6.0 and won't support screen mirroring?? Is this true or do I need to pay for the 'original' Samsung converter cable? Happy to consider miracast or chrome cast, but my store can't confirm if either will 100% work. And suggestions to help guys?

    Thanks,

    Hamish, Australia

    This does nothing..... I have tried everything and my phone says it is connected, but the TV shows nothing. My buddy can mirror to the TV in seconds like mine use to a week ago, so I know it isnt the TV. Does anyone have a "REAL" fix for this yet?

    This method worked for my Note 4. Thanks!

    If you have Allcast installed try uninstalling it. This worked for me on my Note 4 and several other people reported the same. No need for rooting your device. If you don't have Allcast perhaps another casting app is to blame..

    Thank you! I've tried almost everything besides any root options. Uninstalled Allcast and viola!

    By God I think this helped me.

    Unreal. I deleted it then tried casting in landscape while already in a media program and it worked without any problem. Previously I would have to be on my home screen and it would maybe work once in twenty times, giving me an error. I was going mad because I just bought a new Samsung TV and was shocked that my Note 5 was struggling so badly to do this.

    Hopefully this was the fix. Thanks!



    EDIT: Nope, still an inconsistent, buggy pieceacrap for no reason.

    @ShakerNL - you said @DonPistolon 's advice worked for your Note 4? I was previously under the impression the Note 4 was a locked bootloader and could not be rooted, but it appears that has changed in recent time.
    1) Did you purchase an unlocked Note 4 somewhere, and if so, where would you recommend?
    2) Or, if you found out how to root it, would you be willing to share your root method for the Note 4?

    Ok. I have rooted my s5 sport and installed Root Explorer. I went into it as super user and found the file. System/build.prop . This is a huge file. Do i add wlan.wfd.hdcp=disable at the very end of the file or somewhere in it?
    EDIT: ok, I found the information and placed the line of code at the very end. Sadly this did not work.
    Has anyone found a solution?

    OK pay attention I've got the answer to your problem the J7 lollipop had screen mirroring but android Samsung and T-Mobile conspired together to delete functionality screen mirroring android change the operating system Samsung change the firmware and T-Mobile profited by selling new phones ..1st of all android deleted. functionality so that you would be forced to purchasing their chromecast dongle, $50 and then Samsung help delete functionality of your phone in order to sell the J7 prime and T-Mobile just sells phones and makes money.. I'm in a lawsuit at this time against Samsung and android I'm positive I will be successful contact T-Mobile's Chief Executive officers office do not do executive response team they are stupid tell them they did this and get your new phone if your phone was a J7 lollipop in the beginning that is what you purchased and when they updated the phone they deleted your functionality we they stole it from you and you are entitled when these 3 entities conspired together for money this is called racketeering it is a crime Good luck
