[Q] HDMI woes -- A110 & A500
My husband has an Acer 500 that's about 2 years old and I have an Acer A110 that's about 10 months old. I hooked up an HDMI cable from the A110 to the tv the other night, and it didn't work. I've only used the HDMI port twice before, but I have noticed that the battery port is awfully wiggly and frequently when the charger is plugged it, it's often a poor fit and not really connected/charging. Anyway, I did find that if I wiggled the HDMI cable, a snowy picture is very briefly delivered to the tv.
Then today, I discovered that the HDMI port doesn't work now on the 500. This we've used quite a bit. I switched cables, switched to different HDMI ports, and tried on 3 different tvs. Nada. Then I hooked up a computer via HDMI to the tv and it works just fine. So it doesn't appear to be the cable or tv, yes?
I can only conclude that the HDMI ports are a weak aspect of the Acer tablets, but obviously I don't know for sure. The one is still under warranty, I think, so I'll be returning it for repair. But I'm wondering if anyone else has had similar problems or if anyone has alternative ideas as to what might be going on? We haven't had any power outages or anything, and the tablets aren't left plugged into the tv unless we're watching it.
