Black Screen on Google Nest Hub, Camera Works

DeBee

Came home to see a black screen. Tried different outlets and a factory reset. Can see the screen light up faintly during reboots. Camera worked until I factory reset, now can't activate it without the screen. Adjusted the brightness settings but didn't help. Anything else to try?

It is still working! It appears that an update to the firmware version solved the issue. 

1.56.295071 - version when it stopped working
1.56.295170 - current version

Hey DeBee,

 

Thanks for sharing details about the issue here. I understand the feeling when you're having issues with your Google Nest Hub. A few questions: when did the issue start? Are you using the original power cable that comes with the package?. Please send a short clip video showing the issue, to have a better picture of what's happening to your device.

 

Looking forward to your response.

 

Cheers,

Muddi

I typed a thorough reply and was notified it was marked as spam and removed, probably because I posted a link to my video of the black screen as you requested (could not see a way to upload it). I am using the original power cord and have tried different outlets. The video showed the screen stayed dark although it did respond. When I reboot I can detect a faint glow. I did check my software version, which lists the system firmware version at 295071 and the Cast firmware at 1.56.295071 . I wonder if there is a way to roll that back to a previous version?

Since the screen came back, this device frequently displays a Network Problem  (try rebooting your device or move closer to your router, then try set up again). None of my other Google devices seem affected, and before the Black Screen outsge, I didn't have this problem on this device.

Hey DeBee,

 

Thanks for letting us know. 

 

Make sure your device is within 15-20 feet of your router. Try rebooting your router and Google Nest Hub for a minute to two to refresh the connection.
