HDMI Cable will not work with Yoga 3 Pro

 Purchased a micro HDMI to standard HDMI cable for my new Yoga 3 Pro.  After trying it on two monitors (Panasonic and Vizio), my Yoga sees the resolution of my external monitors in "Display Properties" but no matter what I do, I can't get the monitors to display anything at all. 

Tried resetting the resolution of the Yoga, tried rebooting with cable attached/not attached. Can't get a picture at all. Tried "extend" screen and "duplicate" screen.   Nada.

I planned to do a big slide show presentation tomorrow for Thanksgiving, so any help would be appreciated.

Did you try to only use the external monitor ?

 

[ Windows key ] + [ P ]

choose external monitor/projector only

Hi photodb, and welcome to the Lenovo user community!

Also try a different cable. They're sometimes the problem.

Re: HDMI Cable will not work with Yoga 3 Pro

I have a new Yoga 2 Pro and could not get the micro HDMI cable to work. Turns out that the port was too deep for the male end of the cable. I had to cut rubber away to expose more metal and that worked. Problem is that it compromised the strength of the male end and it bent and broke not too much after.

Hi Magglio, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

I haven't seen any indication that that is a problem with the Yoga 3 Pro. I've been using a Monoprice micro-HDMI to HDMI cable.

 

Hoping to hear back from the photodb...

Heard from someone else that the Insignia cable from Best Buy was the problem, so I returned it today.  Ordered a Monoprice cable from Amazon so we'll see when that arrives Friday.

I bought a Monoprice cable from Amazon and it works perfectly now.

Is this forum not supervised. This post is marked as solved but if anyone takes the time to read it it is not. Sounds like a major problem for connecting Lenovo to external monitor but not taken seriously
