Series 8 won't miracast

Our church just purchased a Samsung series 8 model UN65KS8500FXZA TV. All we want to od is use this as a monitor for our laptop, so we can show Power Point presentations.

We do not have internet but our laptop has Windows 10 with Miracast capabilities. The laptop finds the tv but it will not connect.

There are no instructions with the tv on how to set this up. Youtube has not been of any help.

Re: Series 8 won't miracast

e user guide for the television is available at this LINK. To make this connection without a network. you will need to enable the WiFi Direct feature on the laptop and the television. For the television, go to Settings>Network>Expert Settings>Wi-Fi Direct and turn this feature on.

Does the laptop have an hdmi port? If so try using a high speed hdmi cable to connect the two. Direct connections are always stable. it seems a lot of users are having the same problem.
