Hisense TV Not Working with Chromecast

Hi everyone.
I just bought a hisense HDTV HL66V88 for $40 from op shop.
The remote doesn't work but the problem is l plugged in a chromecast and the picture is snowy and unclear and there is no sound but it bursts sounds every now and then.
My question is can l fix this or should l return the TV? I don't want to spend too much money fixing it l will already have to get another remote, if l keep it.
Thank you in anticipation
Regards,
Nettie

      Thanks Mark you are a real peach aren't ya
      I didn't ask the question to get snaky snide remarks. I asked it because l want to know if l can fix the problem or not.
      Not everyone has the money to buy a brand new TV, so maybe think of that before you make rude remarks.

      Anyone else please do not answer question unless you have some technical advice. You can keep any sarcasm to yourself, I don't need nor want it.

    you can get a remote here maybe then try fiddle with settings to correct issue

    Can you try another device, like a DVD player, on the same HDMI port and/or the Chromecast on another TV?

    Return the TV.

      Yes thanks Xuqi l think l will do that.
      When you use a chromecast the picture quality should be clear unless there is something wrong with the TV or slow internet.
      The problem isn't the internet. It's a bummer because l was hoping l got a bargain, not a lemon ;-)

        It's a digital HDMI signal so should be clear. If you're getting the type of weirdness you're experiencing then it may be a fault with HDMI port, or some sort of issues between it and the Chromecast. Neither will have an easy fix, so easiest to return and try your luck with another TV.

    If you try something else on the HDMI port is it fine (might be the HDMI port itself?), also if you have a USB keyboard I'm wondering if you can plug it in and get into menu from there (so you don't have to buy a remote?).

    Did u try download the free sure app for a remote until u get another 1. I use the app on the bedroom TV.

    Might be a long shot but try switching between PAL or NTSC on the google hone app.
