Sorry you’re experiencing that! Here are some things to try.
First, ensure that you do, in fact, have Brief Mode turned on for that device. If so, try disabling Brief Mode, waiting a few minutes, and turning Brief Mode back on again.
Second, try powering off the device for a few minutes by unplugging it, then plugging it back in.
If Brief Mode still isn’t working properly, you can try a hard reset (wiping it to be the way it came from the factory). To do that, follow these steps:
- Press and hold the Microphone off and Volume down buttons.
- Wait until the light ring turns orange (about 20 seconds).
- Then, go through the setup process.
If you’re still having trouble, I would recommend contacting Amazon directly for support.
Hope you’re able to get this resolved quickly!
I’ve just had the same problem tried everything including hard reset and nothing. As a last resort I said to the problematic echo dot , “Alexa , turn on Brief mode and she responded by switching back to Brief mode . No Problem
