Hello, I was gifted a gen 1 chrome cast, and I tried to add device to my home so I can start the set up, but it is not working. It will show "google Chromecast" momentarily on the TV, and then the message quickly goes away and instead says "no input" over and over again. I've tried factory resetting it, leaving it unplugged for 10 mins, and double checked all the wiring, but I have yet to fully set up and use the device. The device is flashing orange very slowly, and sometimes a quick flash of white light. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
Try unplugging the Chromecast from the power source, wait about one minute, and then plug it back in. I'd also recommend using a power socket, not USB port on the TV. If that doesn't work:
I can't think of any other workarounds or troubleshooting steps to try, so that is probably end of the road for that device unfortunately with it being a first gen which is way outside warranty.
I'm really sorry about that! I wish there was more we can do for you. If you would like, you can submit feedback regarding the device, but that's only if you feel like you'd want to. Otherwise, if there are no further questions, I can go ahead and lock the thread.
