    • It is also possible by holding down all 3 buttons on the top to put the device into FASTBOOT mode. Lots more to explore here.

  4. Remove the screen. This part sucks. Looks like it might be possible for the screen to rotate out, but its pretty stuck in. Lots of careful prying was required.

What display is being used? Rectangular or circular shape? Can you please publish article number and or manufacturer code?

Andreas - Reply

He said the display was round. I have no idea what the code would be, but I’d assume it’s a custom Amazon display.

Liam Powell -

Thanks for doing this. Any photos of the speaker system? The sound is pretty good for such a small device.

Any photo of the power-plug? (+ in center?) Specification of the power adapter?

It seems that display is octogonal shape, not circular.

OLED or LCD panel ??

Daniel Fernandez - Reply

the display itself looks like it’s round but the frame is octagonal so it will fit in the chassis without rotating. that would be my best guess.

Logan Teffertiller -

we need part number of this display.Can anyone suggest?

could you me the Mic Array Board to us? I really want to confirm wheather Amazon has the agrithm that the microphone placement can support not on the same surface?

Your step 4 is all wrong. you don’t have to pry at all. With a clean (oil free) palm, jusy apply slight pressure on the front of the screen while holding the back firmly with the other hand. then use just a small quick counter clockwise twist, the screen will move just about 1/2 inch. You’ll feel it click. Then the screen will literally fall out in you hand.

Any insights about how they’re molding the outer shell? How are they getting away with those undercuts?

Do you have a solution to the screen jitter problem ???

Failure that deeply affects this device and no solution from Amazon.

What is it that actually causes the display to flicker? Do you know please? Can it be repaired? Thanks. Nick

Nick Parks - Reply

The display flicker seems to be a very common problem with the Spot. Mine flickers once approximately every 1.2-1.4 seconds. Going to have to disassemble it and reconnect everything outside of the case and use an o-scope to find what’s bad. Given the near constant frequency of the flicker, I’m going to say either a bad cap or display controller. Possibly a bad signal telling the display controller to go to sleep and then waking it back up?
