Hey guys I have a Samsung TV with an USB connection behind of it but when I connect my gs4 to the TV it only charges, is there a way to read the files on my phone, music etc so it can be played on my TV through the USB?

make sure you have mtp enabled. other than that, if you have a compatible tv you should also be able to use screen mirroring to display pictures and videos and so on.

After the 4.4.2 upgrade the mass storage access was limited by samsung.
Only an HDMI cable or syncing your phone with the tv via screen sharing can help.

You can buy a HDMI cable from ebay or amazon? That wont be difficult. They sell worldwide

Thank me if I helped
