Air play icon is gone

The airplay icon at the bottom of the control panel has gone away. I have used it two times and it worked perfectly. Tonight it will not connect.

Hi Allen!

For some reason your iPhone/iPad doesn't see your Apple TV.

Are they both still on the same wireless network? Can you try restarting the Apple TV?

Re: Air play icon is gone

Yes, they are on the same network. I tried restarting Apple TV. I don't think it is with Apple TV.

The icon for airplay has vanished from my control panel. In the tutorial when I get to step 3 the layout of the screen doesn't match with the layout of the control panel.  When I slide it up from the bottom of the screen, it matches up exactly except no icon for airplay.  It doesn't show the icon. I can't touch it to mirror Apple TV. It's not there. Do I need to re-install the app?

This isn't actually an issue with the app, this is either with your iPhone/iPad or the Apple TV itself.

Double check that AirPlay is on on the Apple TV, and that they're both on the same wireless network. Try toggling AirPlay on and off in the Apple TV menus. And try restarting your iPhone/iPad.

Yes airplay is on on the Apple TV. Yes they are on the same wireless network. Yes I have toggled between on and off. Yes I have restarted my iPad. The airplay app icon is on my desktop, but the airplay icon on my slide up control panel is gone. I cannot tap it to mirror the tv.

The icon originally went away when I tapped the wireless icon from on to off. Tapping it to come on again, but the airplay icon has never come back even though wireless is on.

Any other suggestions?

Issue resolved. Unplugged the router, powered off iPad and Apple TV, re powered all devices and the airplay icon came back. Back in business. Thanks
