Rocketfish RF-G1171 MHL Adapter not working with Galaxy S4

I am attempting to connect my S4 to my TV, but all I'm getting is no signal on the tv and no change on my phone. I have Screen Mirroring turned on and have tried disconnecting and reconnecting everything.

Hello Disordia,

Welcome to Community@ Rocketfish™!

In most cases the Galaxy Phones will require use of the small adapter included in the kit, as well as making sure you connect your phone charger to the RF-G1171 to provide power to the unit.

Hello karalove88,

Welcome to Community@ Rocketfish™!

The Galaxy S4 is compatible but you have to make sure to use the additional Samsung adapter to connect to the phone. If it is still not working, make sure to set it up with these exact steps:

 

1. Connect the Rocketfish MHL adapter to the power outlet with a USB charger.

2. Connect the HDMI from the Rocketfish adapter to the TV, which should be off.

3. Connect the Rocketfish MHL adapter to your phone, with the Samsung adapter. The phone should be off.

4. Turn the phone on.

5. Change the TV to the HDMI input that you connected the HDMI cable to. 

 

Hopefully this will work and get the phone to recognize what it is connected to and send the signal out. You may also speak to Samsung to see if there is anything else you need to do on the phone end.

Can you provide the model number for the Rocketfish device are you attempting to use? It will start with NS-. What phone are you using?
