How to fix Screen Mirroring not working:

Also, you need to make sure you have the latest version of the Smart View app. To check, go to Galaxy Apps -> Type Smart in the search bar and hit enter. If you have a newer Smart View you will not see the update button and if you are using the previous version, tap Update to get the latest version.



Now to connect your device, swipe down the notification bar to access Quick Settings. Swipe right to see more settings and tap on Smart View to turn on.


The Smart View app will load a new window and the mirroring devices available on the network will be displayed in that window.


Select the device you want to watch on your Samsung device screen.

Once the connection is active, you will see a blue icon on the home screen. Tap the blue icon to access the Smart View connection settings. You can easily suspend screen mirroring, change the device and disconnect the device.
