Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your Amazon Echo question.
What color light shows on the Echo device currently, please?

And, does it respond when you speak to it, or ask it a question of any kind preceded by the word 'Alexa...' ?

Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 7 months ago

I suggest that, if it does show (after some seconds after being turned On or reset...) the orange light, and announces itself in the Alexa voice out loud, after you hold down the reset (or Action) button for a while and then release it, then you should proceed to set it up as if it were a new device, all over again.

That is, go to the Alexa setup app or Echo setup app, go to Settings then to Update WiFi, and connect it to your WiFi once again. That may be all that is needed to get it running.

(If this doesn't answer your question, if you need more info, or have any comments, use Reply To Expert to respond, and I will be pleased to help you further.)
