Edited by Lynn, Eng, Send2marto, sheryl hernandez and 12 others

A big screen greatly enhances watching TV or movies, but what if you want to watch movies or TV shows on Netflix, or the movie is saved on your Samsung Galaxy tablet - how do you watch it on your big screen TV? You can mirror the screen of your Galaxy Tab 2 on your HDTV, which requires a special adapter. A Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 doesn't have a HDMI slot, so you will need an adapter to attach an HDMI cable to the Galaxy in order to watch it in HDTV.

What is the HDMI cable?

  1. 1
    You have connected your HDTV to your Samsung Galaxy with an HDMI cable, but just what HDMI cable should you use?
    There are a few points regarding your choice. Although any HDMI cable will connect your devices, there are differences among them regarding the quality of build and their length.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    Most importantly, you must find an HDMI cable that is long enough to connect your HDTV playback from your Galaxy.
    The more expensive ones are longer, but worth it if you want to be able to play back your videos. You should use an HDMI cable that is high speed, also. Usually, it is even cheaper than the standard HDMI cable.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    If you have a Galaxy S4, you will need an MHL adapter with the cable.
    You can use any HDMI input port, but you must remember which one you have it plugged into so that it is easier to find the correct channel. Regarding the right cable, there are a few differences among them due to how they are manufactured, and the materials used to construct them. Note that the Nexus between the cable harness and connector can break when the cable is bent frequently and/or bent too much.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    The insulation, or shielding, as it is also called, must be thick enough so that there is no signal interference.
    If you have inferior quality insulation that is typically more rigid and thinner, you will have problems with both audio and video streaming. Ensure that your HDMI cable has extra insulation when your TV and Galaxy are connected near an electric power line.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    The numbering system to designate cable quality was taken away from the cables.
    Any HDMI cable labeled with a logo saying, “High Speed HDMI” will handle transmitting the required bandwidth.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Today’s devices of higher complexity need a transmission rate of at least 10 Gbps.
    You can check if you have the right cable by reading the HDMI cable product details. As mentioned, the HDMI High Speed cables are actually less costly these days than the standard ones. This is due to the high volume of the high speed HDMI cables that are sold.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    In conclusion, you may ask, then, if you should buy the cheapest HDMI cable.
    Your best cable to pair your Galaxy with your HD TV is a mid-priced one. Since you must have a longer cable for the playback function accessibility, you will have to pay a little more. Today’s HDMI cables function on the same technology, regardless of cost. Ultimately, you will either have a strong signal through your HDMI cable, or none. The cheaper ones break at the juncture between the harness and connector, and have thinner insulation (known as shield). Generally, you are best served with a mid-priced high speed HDMI cable.

I cannot connect tab3 10.1 to TV or external screen, what will I do?

Other than tab3 7" or 8" the tab3 10.1" does not mirror its screen. I used a HML adapter (mini USB to VGA). This works on my Samsung S2plus phone, not on the tab3 10.1". Also software screen mirroring on tab 3 10.1 is mi8ssing. Samsung support tells m Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 does not support screen mirroring. This has something to do with its Intel processor that does not efficiently support screen mirroring. This is the reason you will not find any option for screen mirroring on your Tab 3 10.1. We have another option for you; you can download a mirroring application called / MirrorOp on Play Store to mirror your Tab 3 10.1's screen to your TV. The audio would still play on your Tab though.

Make sure that your Galaxy tab 2 is compatible with the EPL-3PHPBEGXAR, here are the list of the Galaxy tab that can work with the EPL-3PHPBEGXAR:

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Samsung Galaxy Note® 10.1 (Wi-Fi), Grey 32GB

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

1. Restart your devices, such as your TV and the tablet. This is to refresh the connection transfers of mirroring your device from the Galaxy Tab to TV. Although this is a new adapter that you might have purchased it will not guarantee you that it will work automatically, considering the fact that it may be experiencing traffic.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

2. Check the cable connections. More or less that the cable connections was not being plug in properly to your tablet or to your TV, double check it or by simply unplug and re-plug it.

3. Try other ports, HDMI cable and TV. If you have an extra HDMI cord, then try to use it and see if it does the same problem that it will not show images on your TV. If your TV has multiple ports for HDMI then try to plug it in the other ports and check if you see some images now on the big screen. As much as possible, try it also to another TV as it may be the TV or the adapter has the problem why it is not mirroring. Also, make sure that your tablet it compatible with the said adapter of EPL-3PHPBEGXAR. Although the adapter was made by Samsung it still have compatibility to work with certain models only.

Make sure that your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is listed below:

I have the EPL-3PHPBEGXAR and the adapter does not work on the Galaxy Tab 2, according to Samsung. Why?

There is a big possibility that the Samsung Galaxy Tb 2 you have is not being supported by the adapter. Although the adapter was made by Samsung, this will not warrant you that it is automatically compatible and ready to use. The EPL-3PHPBEGXAR has list of devices that are compatible and known to work perfectly without any problems at all, there are some instances that some Galaxy Tab 2 will work but only for few minutes and it will stop due to compatibility. Anyhow, here are the compatible tabs for Samsung EPL-3PHPBEGXAR:

Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 10.1 (From Verizon)

Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 10.1 (From Sprint)

Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 10.1 (From T-Mobile)

If your tablet is not on the list, then your device will not be compatible to use the adapter. If you have a Samsung TV, you might as well use it for the Allshare access for your to mirror and share contents from tablet to your home TV. Further more, you might need to consider of upgrading or change the tablet that you own if you want to experience and your whole family of this screen mirroring to view videos, pictures, games and other stuff.

In the section titled with "...screen mirroring in Samsung Tab 2 7.0", it states that the Galaxy 7 tab 2 has a hdmi port so that it can be connected to a TV. The only port on the galaxy 7 tab 2 is a 30 pin micro USB port. So is that entire section incorrect?

As far as I'm concerned, the Gaflaxy Tab 2 cannot be connected to your tv via the adaptor and HDMI cable. The very first Galaxy Tab - yes, the one that was banned in the States and had the ban lifted later - can be connected to your tv. In addition to your adaptor and HDMI cable, you also have to connect the 30 pin charger to the adaptor.

In the step: "A big screen greatly enhances watching TV or movies, but what if you want to watch movies or TV shows on Netflix, or the movie is saved on your Samsung Galaxy tablet - how do you watch it on your big screen TV? You can mirror the screen of your Galaxy Tab 2 on your HDTV, which requires a special adapter. A Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 doesn't have a HDMI slot, so you will need an adapter to attach an HDMI cable to the Galaxy in order to watch it in HDTV." There was no problem with the Tab 1 mirroring to a TV but there are no reliable hdmi adapters on the market except some hit and miss Chinese cheapies. Anybody who knows of a 100% functioning adapter, please let us know model # and source.

Tab 10.1" can not be connected to external screen through cables. Not even via MHL adapter. This is confirmed by samsung support.
Strange because according to reviews tab3 7" and 8" will connect perfectly.
If your screen is not connected to Wifi or it does not have a HDMI port you cannot mirror through samsung link or chromecast.

Is there a smart and proven workaround to make the tab3 10.1" mirror to an external screen?
