I just bought a second hand (but advertised as new condition) chromecast that I assume is totally dead, but I want to double check whether I could be doing something wrong before I ask for my money back. I have several chromecasts already in use in the house. To test if this new one worked, I unplugged one of my already working chromecasts from the tv and power supply and plugged in the new one in the same way (so it definitely isn’t the tv input or the power supply that’s causing an issue). The indicator light on the chromecast itself comes on but the tv shows no signal. I sat and waited for a few minutes to make sure that it wasn’t just an issue of it taking a moment to start up, and 5 minutes later, it still wasn’t doing anything. Is there anything else I should try?
