Troubleshooting For ALEXA: Listening Problems

How to fix an Alexa that not working

3 things you can try when Alexa not working

1. Unplug your Echo
As with most tech items, turning off the power, waiting 30 seconds, and then plugging it back in can work miracles. (This simple trick solves 99% of my technical problems!)

2. Make sure your Echo is connected to the internet
If you are not connected to the Internet ...

Touch the device next to "Wi-Fi Network", touch "Change" and follow the instructions to update
Restart your Wi-Fi router (you guessed it!) By unplugging it, waiting 30 seconds, and then plugging it back in

3. Do a factory reset
If your Alexa still isn't working, this stronger "reset" will actually erase your Echo to the way it was when it left the factory.

I recommend doing a factory reset through the Alexa app
Tap "Devices" in the bottom navigation bar "Echo and Alexa" then select your device. Next to where it says "Registered for," tap "unregister" to remove the Echo from your account.
