After mirroring Android phone to PC, there might be occasions when you cannot control your phone wirelessly. Here we provide practical solutions to fix this issue.
1. Reconnect via USB to enable control from PC feature again
Check if you have restarted your phone as the wireless control feature will not work once you restart your device. Generally, to control your Android from PC via WiFi, you need to connect it to PC via USB cable for the first time to enable the control from PC feature. Afterward, you can control your phone wirelessly. So, if you have restarted your phone, you need to reconnect via USB cable to enable the wireless control feature again.
Note: Make sure your phone is sufficiently charged to prevent power off automatically. Also, check if you have set auto shutdown task on your phone; if yes, please disable it.
2. Keep the USB debugging and developer options on
Please do not disable USB debugging or developer options, or the wireless control feature will not work. If you find that the USB debugging or the developer options are turned off automatically, this might be caused by Android system restrictions.
To fix this, please share your device information with us, including the device model, operating system, and in what situation the USB debugging or the developer options would be disabled so that we can check and figure things out.
3. Set to use USB for File Transfer (MTP) and do not change it
When connecting Android to PC via a USB cable, there will be a window pops up and requires you to select USB configuration, just choose File Transfer or MTP mode, then you will be able to control your phone from PC via WiFi as well. Do not change the USB configuration, or the wireless control may not work.
