I have a Mac Mini that I use as my main computer, and I run three monitors off of it. However, I noticed that one of my monitors would lose its connection any time that the computer goes to sleep, turns off, etc. After a bit of shuffling monitors, cables, adaptors, etc., I’ve discovered that its the HDMI port that’s problematic.
The only thing that I can do to get the HDMI port to work again is turning the computer off and resetting the SMC. Does anyone have any ideas for a more permanent solution? Do I just need to send it in to Apple when the pandemic is over and I don’t need it for working from home? Are there any potential issues from resetting the SMC long term?
Thank you for the help!
