  1. Restart The Echo Show

Sometimes restarting the machine helps in clearing all the mess inside it. Before restarting, you need to see whether Alexa can listen to you or not. If you see that the blue light is glowing, it means Alexa can hear you. If the light is not glowing, it means that the microphone is off. Turn on the microphone with the process as we discussed above. Now disconnect the device from the main power show and unplug all the wires which are there on the bottom of your Echo show. Wait for a few seconds and remove the charges from the device. Now, connect the wires to the relevant points. You have to wait for two to three minutes until the device gets connected with your wifi. As soon as it gets connected with your wifi, say something to Alexa, and see whether it is working or not.
