    In you sound settings under preferences, make sure you have your output set to your TV.

    Hi all!

           I'm having the same problem after the recent ML update, I hook up my MbpR to my samsung tv and the Macbook screen flashes blue as usual but nothing appears on the Tv, when I go into systems prefences/displays the computer shows no external monitor hooked up.

          Very frustrating cause it was working perfectly before the update, does anyone have any suggestions?

     

    Thanks!

    Have same issue after recent update on mac. Got video and audio but it keeps switching on and off while watching on external monitor. When im connecting via mac book pro, evruthing is working fine. So its definetly something with software.

    I got it working dunno if this will work for everybody but it's no harm in trying, try rebooting the Rmbp with the hdmi cable attached when it reboots it should output the signal to the external display in my case without the display on the Rmbp being on.

       Go to system preferenes/ displays and toggle between the mirrored and non mirrored setting to switch the mbp screen on . The display of the Mbp should switch on then and it should work the way it was originally.

        Hope this works for you too.

    I just bought a new Rmbp. This morning I hooked up my Rmbp to my Samsung monitor through HDMI. It worked perfectly fine. Afterwords I downloaded the my updates through the appstore, now when I hook up my Rmbp it flickers a blue screen and then both my Retina screen and my monitor are black, I cant do anything but unplug the HDMI. What can I do about this?

    The strange part is at it worked perfecty fine, until I installed the updates for the OS in the appstore and then it didnt work anymore. My guess is that it is a software problem. They really should come up with a solution for this!

    I'm having the same issue. Prior to OSX 10.8.2 my late August 2012 MBPr that came with 10.8.1 it worked fine on my work Samsung 50 in monitor run 1920 x 1080. I recently updated to 10.2.2 and now all I get is a Black Screen with a huge Mouse Arrow, so I'm thinking that it hase to do with the scaling.

     

    There was a new gfx driver added for the retina for the guys running World of Warcraft. Those that had played WoW were having heating and CPU issuses when playing in game. CPU usage hitting 120% and heating the GPU to over 190 F, almost cooking the card. Blizzard and Apple got together to fix the problem, but I think they just made it worst. CPU is down but the GPX card temp is still up there hanging around 150 F and the fans blowing like crazy.

     

    I've tried everything that is in this thread and nothing seems to work. Apple you really need to look at this.

    I really hope Apple has taken a notice to this problem. This laptop cost 2000 euro, it should work properly!

    I have the same issue. It wasn't until i did the new ML update that i had the issue. Before i did the update it was working perfectly. I think a revised update will fix the bug and i hope it happens soon!

    They really should fix this asap! It's driving me insane. It probably just needs a simple software update!

    How do you turn on the Dynamic Switching? when the HDMI cable is plugged in it goes blank so how did you get this? i want to try it..

    I'm having a similar problem, but I can't even see if the HDTV is connected because the screen on my MBP goes black as well. I had it connected well once, and if I recall correctly, I didn't have mountain lion installed yet. Maybe it has anything to do with that?
