hoho! wow... it looks like whoever made the damn sockets in china couldnt tell a land diagram on the pcb apart from a pinout diagram on the component! that explains why the connectors are upside down! they were looking at the wrong schematic when making the socket!! sigh more chinese noob phails again!

and when things are connected wrongly in electronics, it tends to release the magic smoke and the device no longer works... look like a hdmi chip replacement is also needed like stj said.
