Micro HDMI Problems- YOGA 700 141SK

I hope I haven't destroyed this very delicate port, but the micro HDMI connection has never been perfect. On some specific monitors I've needed to wiggle the Micro HDMI adapter to achieve a good connection. Now I'm getting nothing on any monitor.

What is the absolute best Micro HDMI Adapter to puchase for use with the Lenovo Yoga 700 141SK?

Hi KipMelaque,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!

 

It could possibly be the micro HDMI port itself and not the adapter that is the problem, but I guess trying a new adapter will help identify that. Maybe someone with the Yoga 700 can recommend an adapter that has worked well for them. But if you're currently using an adapter, why not try and see if a micro HDMI to HDMI cable will work better for your device?

Re: Micro HDMI Problems- YOGA 700 141SK

Yes, Using a Micro HDMI to HDMI cable is exactly what I have been doing. But recently it's lost connection. I am looking into some kind of wireless connection such as Airtame, or even a Chromestick.
This YOGA 700 is still under warranty. If the port itself is toast, do you think it might be covered under warranty?
The lack of a video-out really really limits the functionality of the laptop. Video out is what I mainly do, and this Micro HDMI is a horrible piece of engineering.
Is there any other method/port to deliver video out?
I have ordered a new cord... but days later the company tell me it probably will not solve my problem. Fingers crossed

Micro HDMI port is the devils product. I'm being sooooo gentle when I'm plugging and unplugging from the port because it can easily break when bending the HDMI cable while being attached. It seems to me that your laptop has been damaged Smiley Sad . Let's hope its just the adapter. Keep us updated.

EDIT: It should be covered by warranty if the port doesn't have a visual damage that couldve been caused by you Smiley Happy Atleast here in Finland.
