Once you’ve finished changing settings, you should go back to each of your paired devices to have them reset. It may mean new device purchases.
Update Your iOS Device
Here, you’ll need to update your IOS, not the T.V, via a computer.

If it does not work, download the latest version to the App Store.
Some TVs have a feature you can configure to allow for software updates without having to restart your TV To find out how to navigate to
Settings > General > Software Updates.
If you don’t see it there, go into
Apps > Settings and turn on ‘Apps Update Automatically.’

Check Firmware Update Your Samsung TV

- Then choose a software update.
- When you choose an update.
- If it is available for your TV, you need to update it ASAP.

Use The I.P. Remote
If the above doesn’t work, try this I.P. remote from Samsung. However, this app allows you to control the TV from your Apple device and use your Apple device as a remote control for your TV It would be better than not having Airplay.
- Navigate to your TV’s General Settings again.
- Go to the Network tab.
- Then go to Expert Settings.

- Make sure you will click on it to activate it.
Disable Time Auto Protection

[Settings] > [System] > [Power Saving] > [Set Up Auto Protection Timeout], > set it to ‘Off’
It ensures that your phone or tablet will always connect to the Apple TV whenever you turn it back on. However, it can cause issues with other devices, so be careful.
Try Your IPv6 Workaround
If you have a Samsung TV with older firmware, the iPhone may not be able to find it. If the update above does not work for you, there is a workaround to get Airplay working on your Samsung TV that just needs a network connection. Go to Settings from the Home screen on your iPhone or iPad and select.
[General] > [About]> tap on [Software Update] > Pressing [Download] in Software Update
It will begin the update process. If you aren’t prompted right away for an update, try going into
Settings > General > Software Update again and check for updates.
When asked if you’d like to update now, select “Later.”
Apply Some DNS Diagnosis
If we cannot find the Samsung Smart TV with iOS 7 using the methods above, we can perform a DNS Diagnosis. To do this, go to Settings from the Home screen and select.
[General] > [Network] > [DNS]
Suppose you have problems finding your Samsung Smart TV on your Samsung Smart TV Network. Then try entering these DNS values.
Note: If you have multiple Google accounts for different devices, then any new device must use the one associated with your account.
Try Disabling The Firewall
When the above does not work out for you, try disabling the Firewall on your Apple device and try Airplay again. To disable this,
Go to Settings > General > [Firewall], then toggle off both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
If that still doesn’t work, you can also try connecting through a MAC ID instead of a W.P.A. password. To do this,
Go to Settings > select [General] > [Network] > [AirPlay]
And set it to:
MacID: On (Device Name)
Password: On the default 0000, or if you have selected a password.
It should let you use AirPlay on your Apple TV without any issues.

Go to Settings > [Device] > [Reset To Factory Defaults]
