6Extra Tips: How to Fix Chromecast Not Working?

There are several reasons for the improper functioning of Chromecast. For these reasons, five are very common, and most issues are resolved by resolving these problems. Here is the list of five such problems and their solution:

Internet Connectivity

For Chromecast, both devices must connect to the same Wi-Fi; otherwise, they will not enable screen casting. Sometimes, disconnectivity is also a reason for the error in screen casting. The solution to this problem is simple: reset your router, or you may also plug out the router switch once and then plug it in again. Connect both devices with the same Wi-Fi.

Update Google Chromecast

Another basic issue in connectivity is due to an update available for the Google Chrome browser. If you are using Google Chrome for screen sharing, you must ensure that your Chrome browser is up-to-date and needs no further updates. Keeping it updated with the latest version will always be easy for you.

Restart the Chromecast Device

There are minor issues with the Chromecast device, but they don't let the Chromecast work properly. So, you must restart the device to resolve all such errors. To restart the device, go to Settings and then More Settings. Then click on the Reboot button to reboot your Chromecast device.

Use Chromecast Extender

Connect the Chromecast device to a TV using HDMI Extender. It will let the device place in a better way to get more signals and will give uninterrupted services.

Update Google Home App

We know that we need a Google Home App to connect our mobile devices to Chromecast. Chromecast will not respond properly if the Google Home App is not updated. It is usually automatically updated, but sometimes we need to check if any update is available.
