How to connect Lenovo Tab3 7 Essential to a TV

2017-01-04, 21:16 PM

Hi,

 

My sister and I got our parents the Lenovo Tab3 for Christmas and want to connect it to the TV. I know you use a HDMI cable and my sisters bf have me a micro usb to HDMI adapter to use but it isn't working.

 

I was just wondering is there a specific one to use or something to click on in the tablet? 

 

Thanks!

Sorry, you cannot simply use a micro USB to HDMI adapter on every tablet. That only works on devices which support Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL for short). The Tab3 7 Essential does not, otherwise it would have been advertised as MHL capable. However, it should support wireless display over WiFi, known as Miracast. Go to the Android system settings, Display, and scroll to the very bottom there, where you'll find the "cast screen" settings. But your TV needs to support this as well, or else it won't work.

I am just looking at this bedcause I also want to connect by LENOVO TAB3 8 with my TV. However, going to Setting - Display there are no cast screen setting. At the bottom is "Adaptive Display" which can be clicked on and off. Please let me know what can be done else. I have a Miracast apapter.

I am also wondering if the connection can be achieved via Blutooth Teathering. If I can connect the TAB3 to another tablet, for example,  with the effect of screen sharing of the TAB3 picture with the other tablet it should be possible to buy a blutooth receiver for the TV and then to pair this with the tablet. However, the TAB3 munual is so limited that it does not explain exactly which steps are neccesary to get the pairing done. If I know how it works I can make a try with another tablet to pair it with the blutooth testering of the TAB3. Right?

No, it's not on the Play Store. Android System Settings or just "Settings" is preinstalled on each Android device. The app usually has a gear icon.

Hello.  I messaged chat support to say I specifically wanted a tablet to connect to TV via hdmi and that I was looking at this tablet and was assured that this can be done. I asked if it needed to be a mhl lead or ordinary and was advised ordinary.  Has anyone tried this with mhl or slim port leads?
