I lost my Android phone somewhere in my house with the ringtone and volume turned all the way off!
But I remembered I had setup TeamViewer in the event of this happening.
So I load up TeamViewer and login, and see my phone listed under "Computers and Contact" section.
When I try to connect to it however, it sits on the "Connecting to *devicename*..." screen.
While it is stuck there, I can click on the Dashboard tab and see all of my phones stats such as battery left and storage, etc. Same when I click on the Apps tab, I see all my apps installed on the device.
So I know that TeamViewer IS connected to my phone, yet the "Remote Control" tab which shares the screen hangs on "Connecting to *devicename*..." forever.
Looking for a solution to this before my phone battery dies!
P.S. I did recently swap motherboards on my computer and just let Windows 10 figure it out instead of a fresh reinstall of the OS.
Thank you in advance!
Just came across your post and hope you found your mobile meanwhile.
Anyways - I wanted to suggest to update your TeamViewer to the latest version of TeamViewer 13 (if you have a license for it) and otherwise to TeamViewer 14.
The 13 BETA is meanwhile outdated and it is always the best to have the latest version installed.
I hope this avoids a stucking connection attempt next time you want to connect.
