TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi there, I am Pete and I'll be happy to assist you today.
What is the brand and model number of your Android smartphone? e.g. Samsung Galaxy S10
There are several ways to connect your phone to the TV and play media stored on it.
When you open a media app on your phone, such as Gallery, Music, or Video, nearby devices will be displayed in their own tab.
If the device you are trying to connect to is not detected, and you are sure it is connected to the same Wi-Fi access point, and press Refresh.
You may also need to try turning off data on the phone if it is currently enabled, to force the phone to join the same Wi-Fi network as the TV.
Let me know if that works for you.
Are you getting an error message?
The TX-49FX550B is a Smart TV and uses DLNA 1.5.
Is it connected to your Wi-Fi network, and have you tested the network connection on the TV?
Have you tried connecting the phone using a HDMI adapter, to see if that works?
You can get a HDMI cable and adapter from a local electronics store, or from Amazon:
The phone can be connected to any HDMI TV using a HDMI cable and adapter, just like any other device.
This older TV uses DLNA 1.5 so is not compatible with newer phones, so your best way to connect it is either use a HDMI cable, or use another device, such as Chromecast, to cast to the TV wirelessly.
Is there anything else I can help you with today?
Ok, have a good day :)Pete.
