why wont my "ONN" hml to hdmi adapter connect my nexus 7 tablet to tv.it connected my samsung galaxy s2 just fine

HI guys i bought a "ONN"mhl adapter kit" from Walmart. to connect my tablet nexus 7 well when i connect it all the tv says retrieving data.. then says no video something i then connected my phone Samsung galaxy s2 and it worked fine .both devices use mhl so whats the problem do i need to down load an app or put Bluetooth or something for it to work (its a wired one not like chrome cast which streams stuff wirelessly ) thanks in advance!
p.s on the adapter box it says it works with all mhl enabled mobile devices and av recievers

  2. you need to root it first, apparently the microUSB slot only for transferring data to PC and charging. same if you put OTG to it.

    Hi and thanks i read the forum and i dont remeber when i got the tablet but im assuming its a 2012 model because the way they talk nexus 7 2012 models arnt compatible with slimport adapters .so i may take it back or keep it casue it still works with my phone atleast (the reason i got it is so i could use showbox on the big tv lol)
