Stopped working for no reason!

This just stopped working a few weeks ago. I had it on, then the tv screen just went blank. I've looked online for answers to this or how to fix it and can't find any solutions. So disappointing. Less than a year; no tech product should last such short period. Nothing on their website, either, on what fixes to try. I didn't even use it that often, maybe only a couple of times a week.
"Presto! Works like magic! (January 23, 2014)
I was skeptical of other customer reviews that said how easy this would work. I had gone to a local big box store to get their advice on connecting my hdmi tv with no vga to my laptop with no hdmi port. Of course, their uneducated sales staff sold me something that doesn't work. When returning it, they told me there's not a good product out there for what I need to do.
After searching the web for advice and instructions, and coming up with nothing reliable, somehow, this product showed up on my amazon product search. Since Amazon makes returns easy, I thought I'd give it a shot.
Plugged hdmi end to the tv, plugged usb to my laptop. My laptop started the set up immediately. Maybe I had to click a couple of "ok" buttons (I can't remember, it was last week). Then... Presto! I'm seeing the laptop screen on my tv screen!
