TCL Roku TV Screen Mirroring Not Working on Samsung A10e
Are you at crossroads on what action to take after your Samsung A10e fails to mirror on TCL Roku even after doing the connection the right way? Sometimes it actually connects only to give no result! In case you’re facing this, here is the solution.
This troubleshooting process works across all devices. We use Samsung A10e as a sample device and also because most people have experienced issues with it to be precise.
Check your settings
The Roku screen mirroring mode can cause issues if not set to prompt. Always make sure that it’s at prompt before starting the connection process. Navigate to settings>>system>>screen mirroring mode>>prompt.
Choose always allow for permissions in the pop-up dialogue box
Upon making a mirroring request from your Samsung A10e via smart view, Roku tv displays a pop-up dialogue box. It gives you options to select custom permissions for the requesting device(Samsung SA10e). So you have the options to, allow, always allow, block, and always block. Here, choose always allow.
The ‘always allow’ option enables Roku to store your device so you won’t have to connect afresh every time. This in turn reduces the chances of experiencing connectivity issues.
Check for your device in the ‘screen mirroring devices’ on Roku
If you want to know whether or not your device has connected, check for the already listed devices. Navigate to settings>>system>>screen mirroring devices’>>always allowed. In the list shown under always allowed, you should be able to see your device, if it’s not listed, then you are not connected. It might be a wrong connection procedure or that you have not connected before.
Check whether your device is blocked
Might you be trying to mirror a previously blocked device? Do you remember the permission selection options? You or someone else might have previously blocked your Samsung A10e on TCL Roku T.v. To check for this, navigate to your settings>>system>>screen mirroring devices’>>Always blocked>>none.
If your device is listed under ‘always blocked’ then unlock and try connecting again.
Reboot your Roku t.v
Has your t.v stayed powered on over a long time? Well, such continuous working might cause connection issues. Therefore, as a last resort, try and reboot your t.v before connecting again. Your device should be able to mirror after rebooting if this was the issue.
Check your WiFi connection
This is the most common issue with mirroring. Try turning your WiFi connection on and off then try connecting again. You should now be able to mirror your device if this was the issue.
Still on the Wi-Fi issue, if you have two wifi connections, then check to ascertain that they have separate SSIDs. If they aren’t, try to ensure that you configure your router, modem, or gateway to make them different. After this, reboot your WiFi, then your TCL Roku T.v, and try again. Everything should now be okay if the wifi signals were the cause.
