In case of problems
How do you say? Were you unable to change the Chromecast Wi-Fi following the previous steps, as the device tries to connect to the old Wi-Fi network and does not allow you to do anything else? Don't worry, the solution is much simpler than you think - all you have to do is make a physical reset Chromecast and then proceed with its initial configuration.
How? I'll explain it to you right away. First, turn on the TV to which you connected the Google device, make sure that the latter is properly powered (via USB or power socket) and turned on and hold down the physical button placed on its side.
Following this operation, the LED of Chromecast will become Orange and it will start flashing: when the light turns Bianca, the Chromecast restart phase has begun, and therefore you can release the button you pressed previously.
If you have an older generation Chromecast (the one similar to a USB stick, so to speak), press and hold the physical button located on the circular part of the device, next to the microUSB input, as long as the light LED fixed does not start at blink.
When the TV screen goes black, a sign that the Chromecast reboot sequence has started, you can release the button. If you encounter problems or difficulties in completing the Chromecast recovery procedure, I recommend a careful reading of the specific tutorial I have dedicated to the topic.
Once the reset phase is completed, you will see the Chromecast home screen on the TV: therefore, you just have to configure it through the app Google Home, following the steps I pointed out to you in the previous section of this guide, and that's it.How to change WiFi Chromecast
