How to Fix Chromecast Not Working
If you’re having trouble streaming video or pictures from your computer or mobile device to your TV, you may need to fix it. Here are some tips for fixing Chromecast not working:
- Check if the issue is with the source material or the casting app itself. If it’s with the source material, try changing things like resolution, codecs, and other settings. If it’s with the casting app, try updating it or resetting your phone/tablet/sticker to see if that fixes the problem.
- Try restarting your device or hitting the power button several times until you get a message saying “Cast successful.” If that doesn’t work, you may have to replace whatever hardware Chromecast is connected to (like a TV).
