AirPlay is an invaluable feature that allows Apple devices to stream audio and video content directly onto Sony televisions. The process is straightforward and can be done in three easy steps; first connecting to the same WIFI network as their Sony TV; next opening Control Center on an iPhone; then selecting “Screen Mirroring.”
Screen will then be mirrored onto Sony TV for streaming movies and music videos, etc. However, some users have experienced difficulties accessing AirPlay on Sony TVs for various reasons; most commonly being an unstable internet connection.
To address this issue, it is advisable to reach out directly to the manufacturer for help. They can offer specific troubleshooting steps and insights into what may be causing this. In addition, make sure your device is up-to-date with its firmware.
Enter the Code
Screen mirroring and airplay technologies enable different smart devices like laptops, tablets and smartphones to project any image displayed on their screens onto Sony television sets, providing users with access to any image stored on any of their individual devices on an expanded display – making it particularly inconvenient when the feature stops working properly.
Fixing this issue with the help of an app available from Google Play Store should not be an issue; just make sure both devices connect to the same WiFi network and update their software.
Once that’s completed, use the Input Select button on your Sony TV remote to activate AirPlay and then “AirPlay & HomeKit Settings” to switch it on. A six-digit code will then appear on your iPhone or iPad allowing you to stream audio, video, or photos directly onto your Sony TV screen using your smartphone or tablet.
Restart Your Device
Sony TV provides screen mirroring and airplay features that enable you to access media stored on separate devices and view them on a large screen. However, these features may stop working for no obvious reason – in such instances it may be beneficial to restart your device in order to ensure everything is functioning as intended.
Your firmware could also need updating; outdated software could obstruct its ability to connect with TV. Therefore, it’s vital that your device stays current with its most up-to-date firmware version.
To update your device’s firmware, navigate to Settings Apps Help Status & Diagnostics System Software Update and let the system do its work – it should check automatically for available updates if there are any, then proceed with their installation if there are. When finished, screen mirroring and airplay functionality should work smoothly again without issue; if issues still remain contact Sony Support for additional troubleshooting steps.
