If your Chromecast keeps on disconnecting then it might be one of these reasons; a bad WiFi connection, overload of the system, low battery life, network congestion during peak hours, unsupported channel streaming, etc.

Chromecast Issues: 9 Common Problems

If you are having Chromecast issues, it may be one of these. Here are nine common problems that users experience with the device: 

  • You are not able to cast videos or audio from your phone or tablet.
  • The audio or video is choppy or stops intermittently.
  • You cannot cast to a specific device.
  • The network connection is unstable or slow during streaming.
  • Casting from one device to another from a different network doesn’t work.
  • It is not possible to cast photos or videos from the gallery app.
  • The video or audio is choppy or freezes.
  • The Chromecast is not recognized by the device.
  • Movies won’t load from Netflix/ Hulu (or other sources) on Chromecast.

Troubleshooting Tips For Chromecast Disconnecting

If you’re unable to stream content or photos from your Chromecast device, here are some steps that you can follow to resolve the issue. 

  • Make sure that the Chromecast and the devices are chosen for casting are connected by using a strong Wi-Fi signal.
  • If you’re using Chromecast with an HDTV, make sure that your devices are within a range of about 20 feet (6 meters) or so.
  • Check your Chrome browser. It may be blocking access to Chromecast-related websites and services. Try to bypass this blockage by blocking ads with dynamic serving.
  • Security features enabled by default on many newer TVs can stop devices like Chromecasts from connecting if not physically plugged into the TV. To override these settings, enable always-on streaming for Chromecasts.
  • When no audio or video is playing over Chromecast, check for a sound coming from your Chrome browser when casting content from websites and whether the ‘cast’ button is blinking on your TV screen. If not, then try resetting your devices by removing the batteries and reinstalling them one at a time.
  • Low battery life in Chromecast can cause frequent disconnections. Ensure your device’s power to stream content wirelessly by checking the Battery Level indicator in Google Play Movies & TV app with a minimum 30% battery life.
  • Avoid streaming video during peak hours as this may increase network congestion and lead to poorer performance overall.
