Fix 01: Check compatibility
First of all, you have to make sure your smart TV is compatible to use your Galaxy S22’s smart view feature. If you don’t know, not every smart TV that can connect to WiFi will work with smart view technology.
For your ease, here is a list of supported TVs on which you can use the smart view feature. Please note that this list does not include every TV that supports the smart view feature. Some TVs will not be listed here, but it is worth checking if your TV is listed on the list.
- 2011 LED D7000 and above,
- PDP D8000 and above,
- 2012 LED ES7500 and above,
- PDP E8000 and above,
- 2013 LED F4500 and above (except F9000 and above),
- PDP F5500 and above,
- 2014 H4500, H5500 and above (except H6003/H6103/H6153/H6201/H6203).
Fix 02: Restart devices
As we said at the beginning, temporary glitches are one common issue why the smart view may not work correctly. The easiest way to fix such glitches is to restart the connecting devices.
Therefore, restart your router, the TV, and your Galaxy S22/S22 Ultra. After restarting, try to switch on smart view, connect your Galaxy S22/S22 Ultra to your TV, and see if the problem is fixed.
Fix 03: Check the WiFi Connection
Needless to say, your device and the TV should be connected to the same WiFi network to use the smart view feature. So if your TV is connected to another network, switch the network and see if it solves the problem.
The distance from your router to the TV and your Galaxy S22/S22 Ultra should also be short so the signals can reach devices more quickly, and will not interrupt the connection.
Another thing you should check is which band mode is set for your WiFi router. If it 5GHz, then you will likey be unable to connect with the smart view. So check the frequency bands of your router configuration and set it to 2.4GHz, which should work with almost any smart TV.
Fix 04: Allow Permission on TV
If this is the first time you are using the Smart View feature on your Samsung S22/S22 Ultra, then there is an important thing you should know.
It is that you have to allow permission on your TV so your Galaxy S22 can connect with it. You will receive a prompt on your TV upon connection. On there, you can confirm your Galaxy S22 to connect with it.
If you don’t do that, even if everything works, you won’t be able to connect the devices. Now try to connect your device again and see if you get a prompt on your TV.
Fix 05: Clear Smart View App Cache
Smart View work as an inbuilt system service on your Galaxy S22/S22 Ultra. But you can control the service as an app if you visit the App section in Settings.
So here you are going to clear its cache files. This can help remove corrupted files which can lead the app to malfunction. Therefore, it is worth clearing the smart view app cache and seeing if it helps to fix the issue.
To clear the smart view app cache, follow the steps below:
- Go to Settings and then tap on Apps.
- Scroll down and find the smart view app, then tap on it.
- Go to the storage section and tap on clear cache.
Fix 06: Update the Software
As we told you, the smart view is now working as a system service. So if the system is buggy, the feature may not work properly.
So if there is a system bug causing the smart view not to work, you can try updating your Galaxy S22’s system software. By doing this, we can expect to fix any bugs that exist on your device’s system.
Here is how to update the system software of your Galaxy S22/S22 Ultra:
