    I have a MHL to HDMI cable and am trying to use it on my computer monitor. I connect the GS5 to my monitor via the cable. No adapter or anything. Shouldn't need one I believe since it isn't usb, already has HDMI. But I do not get any signal from my phone on the monitor. Any ideas?

    Hello. You still need an AC adapter before it outputs to HDMI afaik.

    The MHL-HDMI cable charges my phone when I connect it to my monitor though so it shouldn't need an AC adapter.

    If you check on any mhl cable description on Amazon for example, it needs a separate power source. It cannot output and take power through the same cable.
    Not convenient, but that's how they roll.

    Also having the same problem. If this is the case then the mhl to hdmi cord should have a port for power on it! Bought the cord for 50 bucks, now I have to buy an adapter to make it work!?? That's b.s..

    I have a Galaxy S5, which I connect to an Oppo BluRay player via a Sony mhl cable. There is no power adaptor required. The Oppo player provides power via the HDMI connection - the phone indicates it is charging, though the available amps are not enough to prevent a net drain on the S5's battery.

    So, just saying, that there is in fact, a different way to roll ...

    Welcome to Android Central! The S5 Neo doesn't support MHL, according to this review: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Samsun....155663.0.html
