Re: Sony Xperia Z Tablet - Black screen on TV when using MHL adaptor

I used the PC companion to repair / rebuild my tablet. This issue has since returned to my tablet. Ive jsut rebuilt it again but this time its not worked.

Anyone from Sony able to give any more options to get this resolved?

After watching that video I just discovered that my Xperzia Z tablet doesn't have the HDMI connection on the side.

 

Why would that be?

Re: Sony Xperia Z Tablet - Black screen on TV when using MHL adaptor

Hi All, Another update. After this issue returned to my tablet i contacted Sony again who recommended i return it for a repair under the warranty. I did this 2 weeks ago and I’ve just had a call from the service centre who told me that it can’t be fixed as it’s a problem with the main board. They have decided to replace my tablet. Unfortunately they don’t carry stock so have had to order a replacement. Once they receive it they will send it out to me. They couldn’t give me a date but said it could be upto 2 weeks.

 

So if your experiencing this type of issue I’d suggest contacting Sony and getting it sent back under warranty

hi

 

I have a Samsung MHL adaptor and I had similar problems with just a black screen. I found you have plug the power in first them the other cables and it worked fine on my Xperia Z tablet wi-fi. It has worked flawlessly for me since then.
