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?

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!

This method worked.

This has worked for me too. The trick seems to be to leave the screen off for several hours - I did this for about 10 hours. When the display came back, the image still flickered but then over the next 5 minutes the display gradually came back into focus. It stayed that way for the next 3 of 4 weeks before the flickering returned bug the fix worked again. So it's not a permanent fix but seems to be a repeatable one.

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.

This is a hardware problem and this is why Amazon has discontinued the product. I called Amazon and they asked me to purchase an Echo 5 and refunded it right away, not sure why the process is such but you get a replacement anyway.
