Chromcast Gen3 not showing the pin code.

Chromcast was installed successfully but pin code not showing on TV 

I followed all of the steps and reboot the chromcast and retry again and again but pin code still not showing.

•Use the same wifi network to setup

•enable guest mode

•factory reset to try again

•did device sharing 

Hope to find pin code so I can cast Netflix on TV from Android phone

Are you referring to the PIN code you should see on the TV screen during the setup process?

First make sure both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned ON on your phone or tablet, then try these alternative steps:

  1. Go to the Wi-Fi settings on your mobile device.
     
  2. Open the list of available Wi-Fi networks and look for an available network with the name “ChromecastXXXX" (where XXXX is a random number).

    Note: If you previously set up your Chromecast and haven't factory reset it since it lost connection to your Wi-Fi network, look for the name of the Chromecast that you assigned to it in the list of available networks on your mobile device.
     
  3. If you can successfully connect to the Chromecast Wi-Fi network in your Wi-Fi settings, open the Google Home app and try to set up the device.

Thanks for responding

There is no chromcast available in wifi setting.

What colour is the light on the device? 

Are you using the power supply that came with your Chromecast?
