    Before you start

    Setup Screen mirroring

    1. From My Apps, select the Screen mirroring icon.

      Note: If there is no Screen mirroring icon in the My Apps area, select from All Apps.

    2. Turn on the screen mirroring function of your mobile device and wait for the Select device screen to appear.

    3. Select the device that matches the name displayed on the TV screen. The screen from your device should now be displayed on the TV screen.

        3. Reinsert the power cord into the outlet.
        4. Power on the Blu-ray Disc player.
    • When the sound and picture quality deteriorates while using the Screen mirroring function.
      • Change the Screen mirroring RF Setting wireless frequency, or channel setting on the Blu-ray Disc player.
        1. On the Blu-ray Disc player, select Network Settings.
        2. Select Screen mirroring RF Setting.
        3. Change the setting to any item (CH 1 or CH 6 or CH 11) other than Auto.
