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 keeps rebooting
« on: October 22, 2019, 01:52:24 pm »
When unplugged and plugged back in my echo dot begins to have a blue ring like it is about to start, but then the blue ring goes out, the blue ring starts up and never says “hello”. I’ve tried to push the more and volume down, but the cycle mentioned earlier continues. Is there anything I do to fix my second gen echo dot or is it completely broke?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

What you describe is a common occurrence when the USB power adapter is bad (or if you are using an insufficient USB power adapter). The one that Amazon provides with the Echo Dot is rated at 5 volts 1.8 Amps. Most USB power adapters for cell phones are somewhere between 0.5 Amps - 1.0 Amps which is not enough to power the Echo Dot.

This is the one that you should be using:
