When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Echo Dot 2 Not Executing Commands
« on: March 08, 2017, 01:21:47 am »
I've had my Dot 2 for a few months with no problems. Today, for some reason it has stopped executing commands. It recognizes the "wake word", ring turns blue, but will not respond to commands.  I have reset to factory settings.  I can play music using my Alexa phone app. I can pair to Bluetooth speakers.  So sound works.  Like a petulant child, it won't listen. Any ideas?

Thank you.

Just saw somewhere else that you're not alone and that it's all fixed now. Thought to be Amazon's servers again.

This happened to me late last night (after midnight).  I suspect the DOT was updating itself.  All was well this morning.
