How to fix Google Chromecast no sound on TV

Google’s Chromecast is a special device that allows you to watch Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and Google Play Movies on your TV, even if your TV isn’t Smart. In addition to the easy and comfortable way to use Chromecast, among its merits we should also mention the cost of this set-top box. The current generation Chromecast devices cost only $35. This price makes Chromecast one of the cheapest ways to access streaming platforms and music on your devices. Thanks to the fact that you control your set-top box through your phone, you won’t need to deal with the nuances of controlling the new system. Like most of the other apps you download, Google Home is intuitive and doesn’t require you to spend time studying the instructions, as it does when you get your hands on a new remote from some other console.

How to fix sounds issues if problem is with your TV

Unfortunately, like other set-top boxes, Chromecast isn’t without its drawbacks. Sometimes when using this device you may have problems with the sound. The degree of seriousness of this problem can vary, and now you will see how to solve it in every possible way:

  • In case you have any problems with the sound, the first thing you can do is to go into the Settings of your TV. Make sure that the cause of the issue isn’t the TV itself. You can do this by experimenting with the sound level and using another device connected to the TV, a game console for example.
  • Also, check if you have inadvertently switched off the sound on the TV using the “Mute” button on the remote control. If you’re using a stereo system, check it in the same way as the TV.
  • If there is nothing wrong with the TV audio settings, try reconnecting your set-top box to a different HDMI port.
  • If the TV and its ports are okay, check if you had properly Chromecast connected to a power source. Pay attention to the fact that connecting the micro USB cable from which the set-top box is powered to the TV Chromecast won’t work.

How to reboot your Chromecast with Google Home

In case nothing above helped you, try to restart the Chromecast using the Google Home app. Maybe restarting will help you to solve the sound problem. To do this, open the Google Home app on your mobile device and do the following:

  1. Choose your device.
  2. In the upper right corner, tap the Settings button.
  3. Next, tap “More” to see more Settings.
  4. In the advanced settings, tap “Reboot”.

The above steps will reboot your Chromecast and fix any visual and audio issues. Alternatively, you can simply unplug the device, which will cause it to reboot.

Other ways to fix sound problems

If there are still problems with the sound on your device, make sure that the volume on your phone is turned up for Chromecast. Although you can control the volume of Chromecast streams with the standard volume control on your TV remote, you can also control the volume with your mobile device.

How to reset Chromecast with Chromecast Chrome extension

To do this, you will need:

  • Select the Chromecast extension in Chrome on your PC.
  • Next, click on Cast this tab.
  • Reset Chromecast to factory settings.

How to reset your device to factory settings with Google Home

Finally, you can try to reset your device to factory settings. The main way to reset your device is by using the Google Home app, which we’ve already talked about.

  1. First, select your Chromecast device in the app.
  2. Then, in the device settings menu, click on the icon with three dots.
  3. Reset Chromecast to factory settings.

Google Home will prompt you to confirm that you want to reset your device. Once you confirm the selection, you’ll be able to completely reset your device with the settings to test the sound again.
If you’re still having problems with your Chromecast after applying these solutions and making sure it’s not another piece of AV hardware on your system, the next best step is to contact Google for a warranty replacement.
