Echo Technical Support / Re-registering a Dot
« Last post by GWV on October 23, 2022, 07:27:16 pm »
"re-register" a dot

I set up a Dot for a friend using his Wi-Fi and my cell phone - - my friend does not have a cell phone. Everything went well. When I returned to my house 900 miles away, my friend reported that he could here activity on my Eufy doorbell on his Dot. I believed that if I "de-registered" his Dot on my phone that would alleviate the problem. Instead, his Dot is now off line. How can he "re-register" it again without a cell phone ??

I have been in IT my entire life, so the first thing I tried was resetting the device. No Change.

I will give you an example of what I mean. I muted the TV so there was no background noise and I said "Alexa add large English muffins to my shopping list". It added Muffins. I was standing 2 feet away when I said it.

My wife also has the same problems.

BTW...we have 3 other Echo (non-show) devices and we do not have these problems with any of them. It is just the Echo Show that is a problem.

try unplugging it for about 40 seconds.    Something to consider, the longer you use alexa, the more comfortable you get with it and will tend to get lazy with the commands.   You may not put enough of a pause between the wake word and command, say everything too fast, too low, or whatever.    Just pay attention to your commands and see if that is the problems.    It happened to me and I had to adjust the way I was giving commands after a couple of years.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Echo show 8 2nd generation x WOL
« Last post by ramonrocha on October 18, 2022, 12:54:06 pm »
The skill wake on lan, worked perfectly on my Echo Show 8, turning on my laptop. This was my main use. When purchasing the 2nd generation, it just stopped working... I've tried to disable the skill, remove the device, re-register the device, and re-enable the skill, several times. I've already checked the BIOS, the network card settings (settings that have not been changed).
Does anyone have any tips? Or even another skill that works?
I don't know if the problem is in the 2nd generation operating system.
Wake on lan works in another android app. That is, the problem is not in the laptop, or in the network.

Echo Technical Support / Echo Show 8 Problems

Over time, I think this echo device has gotten hard of hearing.  Here are some of the issues:

  • Does not respond
  • Respond when you are much closer to another echo
  • Does not recognize what you are saying when you are standing next to the device with no background sound
  • Follow on mode only works sometimes
Any suggestion on how to trouble shoot this device?

two ways, First, if in the US,check and see if available on tunein or iheartradio.   The second is to see if there is a skill for the station in the alexa app.

I think you're gonna have to pick a different app to play music on. Morrow is an app, not a station. If it were a station on one of the more popular apps (Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, etc...) you might be able play it. You might contact Morrow and see if they have a way to add their player to The Echo.
I did not see a direct answer on their site.



I have just acquired my first ever Echo Dot and I would like to play a specific radio station that seemingly isn't on the Amazon/Alexander playlist.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Amazon Astro

I just received my Amazon Astro this week and was wondering about the experiences of others who have purchased it and what they think of it so far.
