Miracast on Sony Android TV - Lumia 950

Views: 524 Replies: 5
I've had my Lumia 950 about three weeks. When i first got it I connected it to my Sony Android TV. Now when i try to connect it, it just says connecting on my phone but it doesnt connect. Previously it would connect straight away and then continuum would open on my TV and i would control the mouse using my finger on the Lumia screen. Can anyone provide suggestions to get it connected?

My phone has updated since then so not sure if that has anything to do with it....

Thanks :-)

Update Gadgets apps in Windows store by checking for app updates, check for phone updates and install all and after all updates do soft reset( Power+Volume Down button at same time for 5-6 seconds), may be after then try to connect your Sony Android TV to your Lumia 950. Maybe, this could help.

Managed to fix the issue. Did a factory reset of the TV, all good now and the phone connects straight away without any issues.

Thanks for your responses.
