Device Doesn't Power On
Device will not power on, and/or does not respond to commands.
Device is Not Properly Plugged in
Although simple, this is probably the most likely reason the device won’t turn on. The cord could be loose or not plugged into the wall correctly.
Faulty/Broken Power Cable
Check if the power cable is worn down or broken in any way. The casing could have broken and the wires frayed inside. You would need to replace the power cable to fix this.
Something Spilled on the Device
If water or other liquids spilled on the device, you should carefully dry it before turning it on.
Faulty Power Supply
This is pretty unlikely, but the power supply could be faulty in the device. To replace the power supply you can follow this guide.
If you notice that the LED Light Ring on the Echo Studio has stopped working, but the device itself still works, you can follow this guide to help you replace the Lightboard.
Device Doesn't Connect to Wi-Fi
The device will not connect to Wi-Fi. You will know the device isn't connected to Wi-Fi when the LED light ring is orange and not solid blue.
Echo Studio is Out of Range of the Router
Your device may be too far away from the Wi-Fi router. Moving the echo studio closer to the router can solve this issue.
Wrong Wi-Fi Password
Certify that the password being entered is the correct password and certify that is being entered correctly. Be careful because most passwords are case sensitive.
Too Many Devices on the Router
The problem may be from your Wi-Fi router. You can try rebooting your router by turning it off for 30 seconds, and turning it back on. This will disconnect any devices currently connected to the Wi-Fi. Reconnect the echo to the Wi-Fi once it is restored.
Broken Wi-Fi Module
If the amazon echo studio is still not connecting to the Wi-Fi, it may be an internal issue, and replacing the motherboard can be a solution. To replace the motherboard follow this guide.
Microphone has Trouble Hearing or Understanding User
After giving Amazon Echo Studio a command, the device either doesn't understand, or it does not react.
You are Talking Too Quietly or Being Unclear
Make sure that when you are giving it a command, you speak in a reasonable volume, and make it as clear as possible. In addition, you should make sure that you are within a reasonable distance of the device, so it can actually pick up your voice.
The Microphone is Muted
If you see the LED light ring on top of the echo studio is red, this means that the microphone is muted, and it will not pick up your voice. Just tap the microphone button so the red LED goes away.

You Have Bluetooth Turned Off on your Device
If your device supports Bluetooth connections, be sure that the Bluetooth setting is actually turned on by tapping over the Bluetooth icon. Then try to pair it with the echo studio.
The Echo Studio is Not Connected to Bluetooth
Check your device’s Bluetooth settings to see if it is connected to the echo studio. If not, you can connect it by going on your Amazon Alexa app, tap the menu, next click on add device and tap on amazon echo, following, find the amazon echo studio, and you should now see the orange light spinning around, so once your echo studio shows up on the app, just tap it to pair it.

A speaker is damaged, creating a plastic or metallic rattling, the speaker either needs to be replaced with a new one, or repaired with adhesive. You can follow this guide to replace your speaker.
Faulty Audio Drivers/Connections to Them
All of the speakers are connected to an audio driver which is most likely broken if all main speakers are not working. The speakers connection to it, or the audio driver's connections to power or the motherboard could also be broken. Here is a possible solution from one of our guides to potentially fix this issue.
Broken Subwoofer or Tweeter
