Miracast stoped working (V110-15ISK)

Hi.

First time I tried to connect my new LG TV to my V110-15ISK, everything went fine. However, after that it no longer manages to connect. Is anybody here able to help me, please?

 

Halstein.

Re: Miracast stoped working (V110-15ISK)

Thanks for your reply.

To my knowledge, there was no update. What happened, was that I got a phone, so my computer powered down. When I reconected, it first was a 60s+ lag, and after that, I got no conection. Since posting my original post, I have managed to conect once, with a multi-second lag. I think all drivers are up to date. I have tried every thing I've found on the net, wich I feel competent to try.

 

Tried your suggestion, I belive, as my win10 is in Norwegian, so I am not 100% sure that I am doing the right thing. Nothing seems to help. Only get a message telling me, it can't connect. I have more or less given up, and think I will buy a cable.

Re: Miracast stoped working (V110-15ISK)

Hi Halstein1, Thanks for keeping me updated on your progress. I want to know have you updated the Wi-Fi Driver or have you made any recent changes to the computer before you started experiencing these problems with the Miracast? We have a couple more steps we can try to resolve this issue. So hold off on buying the HDMI cable until you have tried these steps.

Open device manager
Right click the WI-FI driver.
Select Properties
Go to the Driver tab then click Rollback to see if it resolves the problem.
If that does not work, click uninstall then restart to see if it resolves the problem.

You can try rolling back the drivers for your network. Let me know if this works. Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.

It is not possible to roll back the driver, and it has not been changed for a long time. Trying to update it, only gives me a message saying I have the most recent one.

I'm a bit sceptical about removing my WiFi-driver, because then I might lose me internet-connection. I don't have a cable for the modem.

You can use the Lenovo Vantage app to run the update. You can download it here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/lenovo-vantage/9wzdncrfj4mv#activetab=pivotSmiley Surprisedverviewtab to check all update available.

Re:

Hi Halstein1,

 

Thanks for keeping me updated on this. Have you tried checking if your TV has any Firmware updates pending? Because the reliability of Miracast will also depend on if the firmware of the TV is up to date.

 

You may also want to consider checking if Miracast is still supported on your system.

 

To check:

1. Press the Windows key+R > type dxdiag then press Enter

2. Click Save all Information button located at the bottom and save the text file to any location (e.g., Desktop)

3. Open the text file and look for ‘Miracast’ and next to it will be the current availability status.

 

Sample image:

If it says available but it's not working then try toggling Miracast OFF then ON on your TV then try connecting again. If same issue, consider doing a Reset on the computer to isolate if it's an issue with the OS (ensure you backup important files). If you have another TV with Miracast built-in then try to test if the computer will connect to that device. Otherwise, getting a Chromecast or an HDMI cable will be the next step.

 

Let us know how this works out. Thanks.

Re: Re:

Thanks for all the help. I'll giving up on Miracast, and buy a HDMI-cable, or a new Blue-ray-player. Wanted to use my PC to watch DVDs, as my old DVD-player didn't have a way to connect to my new TV.
Once again, thanks.
