Why is my echo spot flickering?

When I got my echo spot I really liked it but then for some reason it started flickering and I tried everything. Dimming the display, getting a new power supply and factory resetting it. So I really hope someone can come up with an answer for it.

I was ready to toss the spot--though it's one of my favorite Alexa devices. Driving me nuts, the screen flicker. Hard reset, moving to a new location, just couldn't fix it.

 

SOLUTION FOR MY FLICKERING SPOT: Before I tossed it, I thought I'd try the power supply for from the Echo Show I have in the Kitchen. Not expecting much, I plugged it in. And what do you know! No flickering, even at the brightest level! So the obvious take away is that the power supply or cable are bad. But I swapped the power supply with the Echo Show (hard to keep all the echo products straight), and it booted right up, no flickering. So everything is working, except I have a black power supply for the white spot, and a white (found out these two words together are banned--appropriately) power supply for the black Show

Holy sh*t, this worked. I got a new spot from amazon, plugged it into my flickering device and it worked perfectly! Well done!

I found out mine did not flicker when plugged into a surge protector, but did flicker when plugged into an extension cord. I would agree - issue may be something related to power supply.

What version of the Echo Show cord did you use?

There is no permanent fix for this problem. I would contact Amazon or whoever you purchased it from and ask for an exchange or refund. There are thousands of people experiencing the same problem with this device.

FIXED! I had this same problem with my Spot and tried resetting, etc. several times. The problem always came back. I think some kind of charge builds up in the capacitor due to the display screen being always on, month after month. Whatever the reason, I found my solution by accident. I sleep with the spot on a shelf near the head of my bed. Sometimes even the low light from the time display would annoy me (even more so when it was jittering! I was mad at the thing and didn't even want to look at it.). So I simply told Alexa to "turn off the display​". The lights go off and the Spot display goes dark. The next time I ask the Spot a question (like: "Alexa, what time is it?), the display comes back on. I frequently do this overnight and have noticed that I have not seen a screen jitter since I started. Even if I don't do it for weeks. So maybe, like I mentioned earlier, something just builds up from the display being on all the time. Who knew it could be cured with a little rest now and again? Loving my Spot again! Hope this helps others. Give it a try and please report back to see if this fix is more than just anecdotal. Thanks!
