I got a pretty unconvienent problem:

I wanted to connect my Nexus 10 with a old Acer Monitor over the Micro HDMI access.
The monitor only has a VGA Connection so I bought a Micro HDMI to VGA Adapter.
When I connected my Nexus to the monitor I got only a working Black screen in 720p.

My Nexus 10 is running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and is freshly installed since two days.

The Adapter is a DELOCK HDMI MICRO-D male to VGA female Adapter which must be powered by a Micro USB charger.
The max. resolution should display up to 1920x1080.

The monitors name is AL2416W if that matters.

I googled for that and had already searched for something useful in setting aannd I found nothing!

I'm really glad if you can help me guys! THX!


I don't know if that will work, but you can try reducing your Nexus 10 screen resolution to 720p or 1080p. To do that you'll need Root Access and a Terminal Emulator. Open the terminal and input:
am display-size *insert the resolution you want*
Then to revert back:
am display-size 2560x1600
You may want to try the following resolutions:
1920x1080 - Full HD (1080p)
1280x720 - HD (720p)
2560x1440 - QHD (1440p - 16:9)

All the best,
