Yoga 2 11 micro hdmi not working

i have a newly bought yoga 2-11. the micro-hdmi is not working. is there a way to know if the micro-hdmi in this device is working and the problem is not in the notebook's micro hdmi but in my adapter?

 

will an accredited service center accept the device or should i just send this back from where i bought it?

 

ps. i am in the Philippines. this was bought in the United States.

 

first time lenovo buyer. i am seriously disappointed. seems this brand is not so good.

Re: Yoga 2 11 micro hdmi not working

link 1: i've read this before i created this thread. now i'm not sure if the problem is with my adapter cable. i only bought one. the laptop should've come pre-bundled with it's own adapter so buyers shouldn't have to buy one. micro-HDMI is not as universal as USB yet, and i'm reading from various forums it's a bad port system as it's so sensitive it can be wrecked with just the slightest force. it's a bad choice for Lenovo to use micro-HDMI instead of HDMI on their laptops.
i'll try to go to the store and test every adapter they have before buying it. i'll update later on this fix.

link 2: again, it points to the adapter cables as the culprit. now idk what's the difference between a normal micro-HDMI to HDMI cable and what the miix300 owner says as a "premium" micro HDMI 1.4 cable to HDMI. again, this forces me to go to a store directly and bring my Lenovo and test the cables personally before buying it. i'm not even sure i can find this type of cable. it can be found on ebay and amazon but i reside in the Philippines and i'm not gonna order overseas for something that will go through customs and then costs 10x (because of taxes or some sorcery at customs). my only chance is hope i find the proper cable that's sold here. i'll update later.

link 3: i've read this before. i don't think the issue is with the short metal exposed in the micro-HDMI adapter. mine had a lot of metal exposed. and in fact when i plug it in, i can still see excess metal exposed. so that's definitely not it.

just a question: is there a way i can see in device manager if the micro-HDMI port in the Lenovo itself is working? i don't want to go to all the trouble of looking for different cables that will work only to find out it's the onboard micro-HDMI itself which is not working. that's my main problem. i want to know the issue is not with the laptop itself but with the adapter cables i'm trying.

now if i find out it's not the onboard micro-HDMI that's not working, then that's the time i'll set out for the store.

also, are the adapter cables plug and play or do i need to install something?

it says in the last post i read i need to click windows button + P to bring up a selection screen that'll help the laptop to detect the TV or projector. is that really needed? i thought the device would automatically detect other devices connected to it.
