There is no reason to explain the issue any further than the title. Chances are, if you're reading this, you're just a tad perturbed.
So, dispensing with the pleasantries:

  1. Try restarting the device. In a recent test, I tried this, and eight out of ten times, it resolved the issue without further adieu.
Restarting your device, in most devices, is simply accomplished by depressing the on/off button, until the "Off" or "Restart the Device" options appear. Select "Restart."

But, there are those pesky 2 out of 10 times where this didn't resolve the issue. 
Enter, the pull down menu at the top of most phones and tablets....

  • Chances are, this is going to have to be done, repeatedly. After turning these features off and on repeatedly, and opening the YouTube app, if the cast symbol has not reappeared, then try restarting the device. 
  • It may take several times, but I promise, these steps, or a combination of these steps, will work.
