Where is the Google Chromecast Audio
Receiver Reset Button Located?
The reset button is located on the side of the Chromecast, near the micro USB power port at the top of the unit, pointed at by the blue arrow, shown in the following pictures.
With the receiver powered up, press and hold the reset button here with a thumb or index finger for several seconds. This starts a factory default hard reset, when the pilot lamp near it turns orange. Factory default reset is complete when the light starts emitting an orange, gradually strengthening and weakening light pattern.
