How to fix an Echo Dot with clock display that isn’t working
The Echo Dot with Clock is one of the most popular gadgets in the Echo range. With an affordable price tag and unlimited access to the voice assistant Alexa, the smart speaker is a great way to enter the world of smart home and start automating your daily tasks. However, some users have reported problems with the Echo Dot with clock display.
The Echo Dot’s display, in particular, just stopped working – and it’s not immediately clear how to fix the problem.
If your Echo Dot Clock screen isn’t working, here’s everything you need to know.
How to fix display on Echo Dot with clock
There are a variety of reasons why your display might not be working on your Echo Dot with Clock. And depending on the reason, you need to try another troubleshooting method. Here are four easy ways to fix your display.
Step 1: The simplest solution is to simply unplug your Echo Dot with Clock. Then plug it back in after about 30 seconds. With a bit of luck, the error will resolve itself with a power cycle and you will be able to see the display again.
Step 2: If that doesn’t work, you should make sure you’re using the correct power adapter. The power adapter that came with your device is the only official power adapter, and using a third-party product may not provide your device with enough power to power the display.
Step 3: Amazon gives you impressive control over the Echo Dot with clock face — including the option to turn it off. This means someone else in your household could have turned off the display without your knowledge. To check if the display is on, you can just say, “Hey Alexa, turn on the display.”
Step 4: Besides turning off the display, you can also adjust its brightness. If your display isn’t working, it might just be too dim to see it. To fix this issue, say “Hey Alexa, set the brightness to 10.” This increases the brightness and makes the clock visible in even the best-lit rooms.
Control your Echo Dot with clock display using the Alexa app
If you’d rather mess with the Alexa app than voice commands, there’s an easy way to check the status of your display. You can also find some other settings that can help you fix an unresponsive display.
Step 1: After opening the app, navigate to Devices Section.
Step 2: Choose Echo and Alexa submenu, then find and select your device.
Step 3: Here you will find them LED display Menu. Click on it and you can see if your display is on or off and make other adjustments to its appearance.
