Trying to brighten the picture of a TV show I am casting from my chromebook to my TV. The TV brightness and colour are turned up high and TV brightness is perfect - it is only dark when casting a show to the TV.

Hi Sinead,

Thanks for bringing this up and posting in the Chromecast Community.

1. Does the same issue occur when casting from your mobile device using cast-enabled applications?
2. Have you tried plugging your Chromecast device into a different HDMI port on your TV?
3. Can you please try rebooting your Chromecast device?

Let us know how it goes.

When I also cast MLB games from my samsung smart phone to my TV the picture is almost too dark to watch and hard on the eyes. Very common problem. No way to brighten picture has chromcast has no settings to do so. I returned mine to store for a refund.
