    MHL to HDMI cord recently purchased. It shows the regular phone screen, sound works, but when I play video the video is black, but the video player bars and info still show. It is a cheaper phone, could be the issue?

    I've heard if you buy cheap version of the adapter it won't work , or 5 pin to 11 pin need converter adapter

    appreciate it! i will look into a better adapter. price spread on these adapters doesn't seem too drastic, worth a shot

    Have you tried different apps? I haven't used mhl in probably 5 years but if I remember right a few apps refused to output video over hdmi.

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you know for sure that the phone supports MHL? The official site doesn't list it: https://www.mhltech.org/devices.aspx
