Hello everyone, I just bought a Chromecast with Google tv and set it up on an Asus VP28U monitor.
Setting up went smoothly and I even managed to watch some videos for 1h. I switched the monitor off and came back 5min later and now Chromecast shows a black screen every 2s. I tried a factory reset and I can't even reinstall it correctly as it keep doing it even after the reset. I tried changing the HDMI port, to plug the power in another socket, restarting the router it does not change anything (connecting a computer through that same HDMI port works perfectly fine). This is the second time it is happening to me. I sent back the first chromecast thinking that it was defective but now I am wondering if I am missing something in the setup of the Chromecast). Would you have any solution for this ? Thanks!
I have the same thing. After my TV is switched off and back on, I see the Chromecast home screen for about 1 second, and then a black screen. After I restart the Chromecast it works, but after TV is off and back on, not anymore...

Shermski, please try to factory reset your Chromecast. Here's a guide.
Thank you for your answer. Everything was correctly plugged in. The only thing that worked was to return the Chromecast and exchange it with the HD version instead of the 4k one even if my monitor handles 4k.
Thanks for keeping me in the loop and happy to hear that your new Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is working as intended. Feel free to reach back should you need help in the future.
Shermski, how's it going? Do you still need help?
