    Hi, i'm new here so go easy on me.

    Anyway, here is my problem.

    I have the new LG nexus 4, i bought a MHL to HDMI adapter so i could watch the films etc from my phone on the TV. However, its not working. There is no signal. I've tried all the troubleshooting tips.

    Any ideas?? I can't post the link of the adapter because i'm a new user!

    Thanks in advanced

    One of the troubelshooting tips was to connect a charger at the adaptor's microUSB socket ? :)

    If your LG is anything like the Samsung G3 then the pin count/config was changed. The standard MHL will not work. I had the same problem the G2 MHL did not work on G3. I ordered a MHL for the G3 and all worked fine. I now have a standard MHL paper weight.

    Thanks for all of your suggestions. I finally found out the problem, the nexus 4 doesn't support MHL. To view it on the TV you need a SlimPort HDMI which i've got coming in the post first thing on Monday.

    Thanks for your warm welcome to the forums!

    Do you have the right type of mhl adapter? There are two sorts, the ones that work with Samsung devices and the ones that work with everything else, so you need to check Samsung compatibility before buying.

    Not all Samsung phones work with mhl, even though people assume that they do.
    What phone do you actually have?

    I think it's basically the high-end Samsungs like S and Note series do support MHL, but budget and mid-range like J series do NOT support MHL and so can't screen-cast directly via HDMI.

    can you confirm what model and variant Samsung phone you actually got there?
