HDMI not working on Yarvik Xenta TAB9-200

So you have got your brand new Yarvik Xenta TAB9-200 tablet computer.

All seems well. But then, suddenly – Oh, No!!! You have connected your Xenta to your TV by a HDMI video cable (optional – not included with the device), but all you get is “no signal”. You try another TV – the same result.

You check the tablet’s settings – the HDMI video is enabled (by default). You play with various output resolutions – makes not difference.

Damn! Is the computer broken? Do you have to return it and ask for a replacement? Is it cable’s fault? Is it damaged or incompatible? Shall you get a new cable?

Thankfully, neither…

For some funny reason designers of the tablet have made its mini-HDMI socket so deep, that (most of? some?) regular mini-HDMI plugs just don’t reach deep enough to make a decent connection.

The solution is very simple.

Grab a hacksaw and saw off some 1.5-2.0 mm of the plastic enclosure around the metallic end of the cable connector (pictured)!

Now you will be able to insert it as deep as it is supposed to go, and the picture from your tablet’s screen shall come up on your TV.
