    Angry HDMI output not working

    Today I purchased a micro HDMI cable for my Xoom. I turn on my Samsung TV, plug in the Xoom and connect it to the TV. Doesn't recognise the device. Doesn't even say anything has been plugged in. I'm unplugging, resetting TV and Xoom constantly, switching screens etc... It finally works for like 3 seconds and then POOF, its gone. Im nearly breaking the HDMI port on my Xoom to get it to work, but its just not working. I searched all the forums on this topic and not one person has a proper solution, just "oh its working now, derp!". Tried this on 3 different HDMI 1080p TVs, none work. Before I launch my Xoom out the window, could someone please help me on this matter?!

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us. You've tried all the troubleshooting, the only other thing is to make sure your Xoom is on and not asleep when you plug it in.

    Welcome to the forum

    Yeah ... exactly same problem with you [Xoom+Samsung TV]

    The one and only solution for me;
    - Connect the Xoom to TV.
    - Reboot the Xoom while it connected to the TV.
    - Glad this the one and only solution that work for me.

    Hope it help...If not, I'm so sorry about it

    hi
    you need to select pc mode / monitor mode on the tv ( turns the tv into a big monitor) i suspect the trick of turning the xoom off and on again when conected to the tv is making the tv auto select this mode you should find this mode under settings

    A further issue

    Sorry for bumping but im getting no answers anywhere else -.-

    have the Xoom 2 media edition (and love it!) that i want to output to TV/monitor to make it into a portable PSX emulator (all legal dont worry), but dont have a HDMI port on my TV. SO, to ebay, got a micro HDMI to HDMI converter and a HDMI to S-Vid and/or DMI cable, Plug in switch to av - nothing, plug into monitor - still nothing.

    ive tried all devices of and on, channel change and every other thing I can think of, anyone else got any ideas??

    thanks alot

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us. We've had other members in the past try the converter and it just won't work, thinking the only way is with the hdmi cable.
