    Default HDMI output not working after Kit Kat Update

    Is anyone else having an issue plugging in your phone to an HDMI cable after the update? MyHDMI out just stopped working after the update. No other issues except for SMS smileys since the update.

    Are you using an MHL adapter?

    Interesting, I haven't tried it after 4.4.2, I'll have to check it out and let you know.

    I know the instructions that came with mine required the TV and phone to be turned off then turned on together once connected. Pita if you ask me. I'll try it this evening and see how it goes though.

    That is an idea. I will have to try that out as well. I know before the kit kat update it was plug and play with the MHL cable no need for a restart with it plugged in..
    Let me know your finding. Have a good night

    Ok here is an update on my findings.. I tried the power on while connected to hdmi and tv. Nothing changed. Still can't get any sort of hdmi or audio output detection from note 3.. but it will charge when USB is connected to tv..
    So I keep looking. Found another forum with another person asking the same issue. There someone suggested that after the kit kat update you do a hard system cache clear.. it is when you get into this DoS mode when you power on the phone.. tried it and with high hopes failed on getting the hdmi output to work..
    So my next move is to call Verizon because they sent out the update to the phone and hopefully get someone with some knowledge and can help me with this.. I hope I don't have to exchange my phone.. I own it outright and I don't want some refurbished pos....

    More details to come...
    Have a great weekend... ;-)

    I have tried it with 4.4.2 and it does work the same as it did before. Maybe your mhl device is defective. Have you tried it on another tv?

    My MHL cable is good. Only use it when I need it. I keep it nicely wrapped up in it anti static bag that it came in. I've tried it on a few hdmi tv and the same result..
    Are you using your MHL cable on your note 2 or note 3?

    Well I tried it again doing the while process hooking up the MHL cable to my note 3 then to the hdmi on the tv. Restart my note 3 while it is all connected. . And nothing. Phone charges but no display.. I know my cable is good. It was working just fine the day before the update then not after the kit kat update...😯
    I guess my next step is to call Verizon and or go into best buy. .

    I don't know what they did to your phone lol. But it does sound like something is wrong. I'm all out of ideas. 😢. Sorry. Let us know if you get it fixed by Verizon. Good luck!
