I purchased a chromecast model 2018 but I have a problem. It signals an error (flashes the orange led but the device works correctly) the error appears a few hours after the configuration. The firmware version is 1.42.172094. I've already tried to reboot my Chromecast, to reset It but the problem still occurs.

Hi Craig.
1) my Chromecast Is directly plugged into the HDMI Port of my TV
2) yes I'm powering It with The original cable and Power adapter
3) even with this issue i can still cast whatever I want. Even before I was able
4) I don't get any message on the TV screen. The Chromecast works like a charm except for the led behind that flashes orange.
Thanks for the moment

Hi Edoardo,

Thanks for responding back. It’s good to hear that it’s still working as intended. We have some cases like this but it’s rare, perhaps your Chromecast is ready for an update. Can you please reproduce the issue and file a feedback report through the Google app?

Hopefully some others in the Chromecast Community will be able to share if they are also experiencing the same thing.
