RF-1171, Samsung S3 issue

When connected, my phone (Samsung S3) recognizes the cable ("HDMI Cable Connected" message appears) but there is no signal to the TV.
I tried connecting all the cables while both devices were powered off & still encountered the same problem.
I have an older TV (Sanyo HDTV, DP42647). Is that the problem? I've searched online & could find no other mention of this problem or problems with my TV model.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Tyl3r,

Welcome to Community@ Rocketfish™!

Are you connecting the phone charger cord to the adapter to provide adequate charge to power the display output? Once you have the cords connected, and the phone shows HDMI Cable Connected, if you go into the phone settings does it have a setting for Display Out, or Screen Mirroring?

Regards,
Jon

All cables are connected per the instructions. Phone is fully charged & plugged in. I'm using the 11 pin adapter.
There is no output setting on the phone.
I know I'm on the correct input for the TV because when I change it, the phone no longer recognizes the HDMI cable.
Screen mirroring is automatically disabled when HDMI is connected.

Tab 4 and RF-1172 Issue

I have tried everything that was said an the posts I found for the RF1171

This does not work for my Tab 4

I have a Samsung tv-

It finds the HDMI- MHL but the Tab itself dows not connect and tv says it can not be found.

This continues if I leave the HDMI with adapter, connected only to the TV.

After TV reset, and disconnect from TV I have no devices found.

Upon reconnecting, (after having unlplugged everything) Again it finds the Cable and HML Adapter but says to check devices power, cable connection and source selection.

 

I hope that makes sense.

 

Thanks for your help

Hello mnmmacd2015,

Thank you for responding!

This is just an adapter. If the phone and TV see each other, but the phone is not sending active signal for the TV to display, there is most likely a display setting in the phone Operating System that needs enabled. Because every phone manufacturer terms it something different, I would have to refer you to your phone manufacturer, for verification that the phone is MHL compatible, and how to get the phone to start sending that signal.
