My MacBook Pro 2017 (running macOS Sierra 10.12.5) won't detect my monitor until I've unplugged and replugged the cord ONLY into the monitor itself. The cord is a USB-C to HDMI cord.

Things I've tried that haven't worked: Turning the monitor off/on, opening/closing the Mac with the cord in.

Anyone have any thoughts on how I could fix this issue? At the moment every time I plug my Mac into my monitor I have to pull my monitor to the front of my desk and unplug/replug the cord into the monitor.

  • Does this problem exist with other monitors? – Jackson1442 Jun 27 '17 at 23:06
  • @Jackson1442 hm, seems to be only this monitor (just checked with another one). – Josh K-H Jun 27 '17 at 23:16
  • It looks like this is a problem with the monitor itself.Just to confirm, you are using the same cord and setup with the other monitor you tried? – Jackson1442 Jun 27 '17 at 23:28
  • @Jackson1442 yeah, same cord. Definitely looking like it's an issue with the monitor. – Josh K-H Jun 27 '17 at 23:29
  • can you try plugging a different computer into the monitor? Preferably Windows, using USB C – Jackson1442 Jun 27 '17 at 23:30
