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.

Daylight Savings no update
« on: March 12, 2017, 09:13:49 am »
So for those of us whose Echo did not update, how do I get it to update, I can't find a way in the application, it doesn't update if I tell it to update, I'm out of ideas.

I reinstalled the Alexa app, unplugged the Echo and nothing worked help, please!

Good question. Good thing I didn't rely on an alarm for work this morning. Would have been late.  >:(

Found the fix on another Forum, worked for me.

Just changing the timezone from "America/Eastern Standard Time" to "US/Eastern Standard Time" fixed it on my Echo and two Dots. No power cycle was needed.

Glad it worked out, not sure why "America" didn't work. Also heard that if you put it on "Amazon" location instead of "US" that it works also. I think I will just leave well enough alone tho.  :D

This was not a "fix" it was all about having the correct setting for your Alexa devices.  This would be an excellent time for people to check ALL their settings of all their devices for accuracy.

I don't recall this problem last year.  It is a good idea to check settings every so often.  sometimes updates can change things.
