Chromecast flickering to black screen randomly

Community Member


I just bought a Chromecast with Google tv and encountered this issue.

Screen cuts to a black screen for 1-2 seconds randomly with no video or audio but media is still casting continuously because I usually have subtitles on and it skips over the dialogue that was supposed to be in that timeframe, so I know it isn't actually pausing it and then continuing.

In addition:

  • I've changed HDMI ports on my TV, same issue.
  • Already reboot the Chromecast unplugging the power for 60 secs.
  • I've already tested the Chromecast in other TV and works fine.
  • TV having issues: Samsung UN55NU6900
