Try a different HDMI port:If your Chromecast is blinking or solid orange, there may be something wrong with its HDMI port, or the Chromecast is disconnected. Follow these steps to fix the issue:
- Check that the HDMI cable is securely connected to both the Chromecast and your TV.
- Make sure that the power cord is plugged into an outlet and into the back of the Chromecast.
- Try using a different HDMI port on your TV if one is available. If that doesn't work, you may need to reset your Chromecast. To do this, unplug it from your TV and plug it back in while holding down the button on the bottom for 3 seconds.
Try a different HDMI cable:There may be a problem with its HDMI cable. To try a different cable, unplug the Chromecast and plug it into another TV. If the problem persists, contact Chromecast support and follow their set up instructions.
If your HDMI cable is working properly, make sure that your TV has an HDMI port and that the HDMI cable is plugged into the correct port on the TV.
