Hey, guys.
I bought this tablet 2 months ago, and I was as happy as Droopy, until I connected to a TV by HDMI cable yesterday.There is no any changes on the tablet screen, the TV can not detect device on an HDMI port.

I tested it with previous ROM - no result.

HDMI cable is tested with Asus tablet and it is 100% fit.
Could you please help me with this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for reply.

I have already cut 1 mm of plastic. As I see on pictures it requires about 2 mm. i'll try to cut more plastic in evening.

Hello ondauser,

you need to also cut back the harder plastic that is closest to/around the metal part.

It looks to me like the part still won't go in any deeper as it is. I had to do this with my v813.

I also had to cut out the case around the HDMI socket to allow even further entry.

Finally it worked! it is simply a case of no electrical contact.

The fact that the sides of the tablet are curved is the problem. The onda USB charging cable has an extra long metal part to overcome this.

yes, generally crap design.

Picture is real not very good, but I have cut plastic to metal.

Is this Onda design 'bug' or it is standard design? Is it possible to purchase cable for such deep sockets?

On your picture, it looks to me like the plastic bits on the sides/edges (see arrows in picture) will stop it going in in the same way as before.

I also had to cut the side of the case a little to allow deeper contact.

The Onda supplied USB charging cable is longer than a normal one but it seems that an HDMI cable like this is more difficult to find.

Of course, the USB cable came direct from Onda with the tablet. They do not seem to sell HDMI cables in their accessories.

I got my tablet from onda-tablet.com which is just a reseller for the English speaking market. They do not sell an HDMI cable of the correct size or length either. The HDMI cable I got from eBay.

just to make it clearer, here is my cable and the other photo shows how much of the case needed to be opened out.

This just allows enough contact to function.

Unfortunately, I don't think you will find a type D HDMI cable anywhere with a longer head.
