If you can't perform the Wi-Fi direct or Screen Mirroring function, check the following:
Before you start
For Wi-Fi direct and Screen mirroring:
- Make sure your TV software is updated to the latest version. For how to update, refer to the article How to perform a software update.
- Wireless devices such as routers, cordless phones, radios, Bluetooth devices, or microwaves, emit strong radio waves that may disrupt Wi-Fi Direct or Screen Mirroring performance. We recommend these wireless devices be placed far from the TV and mobile device or computer.
- The video quality may be degraded due to environmental interference.
For Screen mirroring only:
- Select BRAVIA TVs and Xperia mobile devices are compliant with the Screen Mirroring function using the Miracast technology. Using a mobile device from other manufacturers is not guaranteed to work.
- If you cannot perform a new Screen Mirroring connection when another Screen mirroring device is connected to the TV, disconnect the first Screen Mirroring device, then make a connection with the new device.
Note: To verify your TV type, refer to the article How to check if your BRAVIA TV is a Google TV™, Android TV™, or other TV.
- Make sure that your TV and mobile device or computer are compatible with the function you are trying, and that the setup is correctly done. For details, refer to the following:
- Wi-Fi Direct: How to use the Wi-Fi Direct feature on the Bravia TV
- Screen Mirroring: How to use the Screen mirroring function on my BRAVIA TV
- Reboot the mobile device or computer.
- Restart the TV.
