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.

One of my Echo Spots, bought in June last year, has developed a display that momentarily jumps up about 5mm every 2 or 3 seconds.
I've left it unplugged for a while, and performed a factory rest, but it still happens.
Have I now got a permanently damaged Spot?

Why not talk to Amazon and see if they will replace it? I have found them to bend over backwards when a problem comes up with a device.

I've had a chat with Amazon Fr,and they said that it is a "known problem".  They've agreed to replace it, but they are out of stock.
Amazon UK and Amazon US show it of of stock as well, with no date for stocking it again.
Is the Spot a dead item?

I know they were talking about discontinuing Echo Spot.  Maybe call back and ask for a credit so you can buy another gadget?

I'm rather hoping that they will give me a Show 5 instead.

See dear...there are few reasons behind jumping screen actually:
  • You've got damaged Spot during delivery OR Faulty LED board.
  • Too brightness of screen.
  • Other Electronic device interference.
As we realized or know about if we place a electronic device nearby phone or TV screen then radio waves interruptions occur and the result is fluctuate screen. By mistake if we set our screen to full brighten or above Average then it may be occurs.

Things we can try
Reboot your device
Reset Factory setting
Adjust Screen brightness from Display setting...
If all fails then Go to Amazon store to replace it or can contact Amazon support to fix this.
Thanks

it really is a known problem.   there has been some fixes but most don't last.   I believe that is one of the reasons it is being discontinued.
