Black screen converter hdmi vga


I’m a happy owner of the PRO version of the VIM 1 and I found this video problem with the hdmi to vga adapter.

when I start I have the black screen. I have the rom ubuntu + android

I tried a second hdmi to vga adapter thinking it was bad but I have the same problem.

Has this happened to anyone else? I will try to upgrade to the last rom with the kernel 4.9 but I do not think that’s the problem.

thank you all


To verify, try the Armbian version from an external media (USB or SD). I have several HDMI->VGA adapters, everything works in Armbian.


where do I find the images with armbian for our khadas vim 1?

for now I have only put official images on the khadas site.

thanks for your help



Thank you for your response and congratulations on creating the post about the tests you are doing with our beloved khadas vim and armbian.

I do not have much free time, otherwise I would be happy to join your project. I bought the khadas vim to make a small home server and I look for something stable and well tested.

I think I’ll try the new ubuntu mate rom with kernel 4.9 and I’ll try to figure out if it’s a hardware or software problem.

I will do other tests and I will gladly share the results
