* Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.



Your mobile device can connect to your HDTV using the Samsung HDMI Smart Adapter. The adapter provides you a standard HDMI connection as an HDMI cable is not included.


Alternatively, you can use an HDTV adapter with your Note 3 and your TV. Follow the steps below to connect your two devices using the adapter.


Note: Please check device specifications prior to purchasing to see if it is MHL compatible.


Step 1: Connect one end of a universal HDMI cable into the HDTV Adapter. 

Step 2: Connect the other end to the HDMI port on your TV. If your TV has multiple HDMI ports, you may use any of them. Ensure your TV input settings have the right HDMI port selected. For more information on that, check your TV owner's manual.


Note: Universal HDMI cables are sold separately. 

Step 3: Connect your Travel Charger to the HDTV Adapter. 

Step 4: Connect your Travel Charger to an approved power source. 

Step 5: Connect the HDTV Adapter connector into the Power/Accessory Interface port on your device. This is the same port you use to connect your Travel Charger. The TV screen will instantly display what is on your device Home screen. 

Note: most digital rights management-protected content cannot be displayed using the HDTV Adapter. Please ensure the HDTV is compatible with viewing videos or other media stored on your phone using the HDTV Adapter. Again, refer to your TV owner's manual for correct HDMI settings. Your HDTV may not display an image when connecting the HDTV Adapter to a desktop dock.
