Questions and Answers

I know how to use a cable and all, but I'm using a desktop PC with an Android desktop. I'm using Android Jelly Bean 4.3 and I can't get it to work. Can you help?

First, turn your desktop PC and TV off and unplug and replug the computer's HDMI cable into your television. Then, turn both devices back on. If you aren't seeing any picture, make sure your TV is showing the correct input by pressing the input button on your remote and cycling through your HDMI ports. If you still don't see anything on your television, turn your PC off and plug it into a different television or monitor so you can see the Settings application to turn screen mirroring on. If you are still unable to see your desktop PC when you plug it into another screen, you will need to call the manufacturer to troubleshoot the issue -- it's possible that something is wrong with its hardware and you may need to get it repaired or replaced. If you can see your PC's screen on another screen, make sure that screen mirroring is on by navigating through the Settings application and finding the screen mirroring settings are enabled. Since you can see the desktop on one of your other screens, this setting is likely already on; if it is, and you plug the desktop PC back into your television with no luck, you will need to contact the manufacturer of your television to troubleshoot the problem. The customer service representative will likely have you switch through your television's HDMI ports and, if that fails, set up an in-home repair or replacement for your television.

Rikomagic jammed. I have been using the Rikomagic Android mini PC for a while earlier this year. Suddenly, the PC jammed at the Rikomagic loading page and it never loads to the Android home page where you can go to browser, YouTube etc. I really need your help to solve this problem?
