playbook hdmi vs vga

This is probably a stupid question I don't know much about computer but is there any other way I could watch my playbook through the tv even if my hdmi is broken
Is there another plug out there that you could use from the port that you charge your playbook and make it through the vga instead since my HDMI port is broken?

which hdmi ?

the one on your PlayBook or the one on your TV?

 

if it is the one on your TV, then you can buy a converter for 5USD, that will enable you to plug the HDMI cable to another format like VGA or DVI.

Re: playbook hdmi vs vga

It is the hdmi of my playbook so I guess there is no other way then to have it repaired. Isn't there anything out there that would connect with bluetooth or something else what about the 2 other plug it's only for charging?

Re: playbook hdmi vs vga

Check your HDMI connection with a magnifying glass. It may be bent out of shape from inserting the incorrect plug or the correct plug being upside down. You may be able to bend it back into position using a small plastic tool.
