The Echo Dot with Clock is one of the most popular devices in the Echo line. With an affordable price and full access to the Alexa voice assistant, the smart speaker is a great way to immerse yourself in the world of smart homes and start automating your daily tasks. However, some users reported problems with the Echo Dot with the clock face.
Specifically, the Echo Dot’s screen just stops working, and it’s not immediately clear how to resolve the issue.
If the screen on your Echo Dot with clock isn’t working, here’s all you need to know.
How to fix screen on Echo Dot with clock
There are a few different reasons why your screen might not work on your Echo Dot with Clock. And depending on the reason, you will need to try a different troubleshooting method. Here are four easy ways to fix your screen.
Step 1: The easiest solution is to simply unplug your Echo Dot with Clock. Then after about 30 seconds, plug it back in. With any luck, the error will resolve itself with a power cycle and you will be able to see the screen again.
Step 2: If that doesn’t work, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the correct power adapter. The one that came with your device is the only official power supply, and using a third-party product may not give your device enough power to run the display.
Step 3: Amazon gives you awesome control over the Echo Dot with the clock face, including the option to turn it off. That means someone else in your home could have turned off the screen without your knowledge. To verify that the screen is on, you can simply say, “Hey Alexa, turn on the screen.”
Stage 4: In addition to turning off the screen, you can also adjust its brightness. If your screen isn’t working, it’s possible that the brightness is simply too low to detect. To fix this, say “Hey Alexa, set the brightness to 10.” This will increase the brightness and make the clock visible even in the best lit rooms.
Control your Echo Dot with the clock face from the Alexa app
If you’d rather deal with the Alexa app than voice commands, there’s an easy way to check the status of your screen. You will also find other settings that can help you fix an unresponsive screen.
Step 1: After opening the app, go to the Devices section.
Step 2: Select the echo and alexa submenu, then browse and select your device.
Step 3: Here you will find the Led screen menu. Click this and you will be able to see if your screen is on or off, as well as make other adjustments to its appearance.
