    A Galaxy Tab 2 is a fairly old model, and searching the Samsung support site gives no hits for "S222B300B" whether a monitor or anything else. It's very possible that the phone itself has no good support for this, though numerous similar options have been available for a few years.

    Regardless, simply connecting the cable and powering on the devices is almost guaranteed not to work. At the very least, the phone must be configured to send a video signal out of the appropriate port.

    Most features that I've seen for this rely on HDMI. USB-to-VGA adaptors do exist, but it's not clear if your Galaxy Tab 2 will send a video signal to that port.

    What OS version are you running?

    Check either you select with the correct connectors on both ends. If you want to connect a tablet with a USB 2.0 that is micro B connector to an HDMI monitor then select a cable with a micro B connector (male) on one end and an HDMI connector (male) on the other.

    You can run into issues with older hardware. Sometimes it's just not possible to do what we want. It may be the Galaxy tab was not designed to send it's video out through the micro USB.. I'll poke around a bit more.
