Echo dot playing music without commands

I set my echo dot up yesterday. It is randomly playing the same song without any commands to Alexa. It doesn't show up in my history. It happened about 4 different times in the 24 hours I had it set up. I had to disconnect it overnight so it wouldn't start playing the song in the middle of the night and wake me up.

SOURCE: music will not play, just cycles through songs without playing

I just had the same problem with my 2GB silver nano. I had to restore the factory settings through iTunes and reload all of my music. There was also an update for the nano that I downloaded yesterday (Jan. 29, 2006) and installed when I restored the factory settings. My nano appears to be running fine for the moment,but we'll see if this actually took care of the problem.

SOURCE: Matsui MAT 140 MR mp3 player

If your Matsui is working suggest you leave well alone -- I've been looking for utilities (new firmware, reflash utility and firmware extractor) and it's all very confusing.

Apart from the ghastly menu system the only problem I've had with mine £8 ($16 used from a flea market) is that Win XP's data write-behind feature means that XP merrily suggests that file transfers are complete when the player is still digesting the files. If you interrupt this by mistake XP stops responding or complains that data has been lost.

SOURCE: Empty Song Folder

The songs are in the wrong format. They probably have a restrictive DRM license that limits playback on mp3 players (although the songs may play fine on your computer). iTunes format will not work at all. The best way to avoid a problem like this is to only use songs that are in mp3 format.

SOURCE: how do I set it to play random songs?

While a file is playing you can enter the Music Submenu by pressing the “M” button briefly. The Music Submenu allows you to adjust your repeat mode, amongst other things.

The Repeat Menu allows you to set your repeat mode. Choose from Normal, Repeat One, Folder, Repeat folder, Repeat all, Random, and Intro.

Choose Random.

Here is an online version of the manual, incase you have any other problems you want to read about. http://www.eclipsemp3.com/CLD2manual.pdf

How do I connect conventional speakers to Alexa?


  1. Set your Echo Dot and external speaker at least three feet apart. When Echo Dot is close to external speakers, it may be more difficult for Alexa to hear the wake word and other requests.
  2. Turn your external speaker on.
  3. Plug one end of an audio cable into your speaker and the other end into Echo Dot. All audio from Echo Dot now streams through your external speaker.

Alexa Echo Dot - WhenI ask her to play prime music, she said it is not in my library?


Got to the Alex app - tap the menu in the upper left and select music and books - if you logged in with your correct Amazon account that has Prime - it will automatically be enabled.

Do you need to keep0 echo dot connected to power line to work?


Yes it must be powered all the time. Amazon has
Evo - an intelligent Battery Base for 2nd Generation Echo Dot. ("Alexa" unlimited) (EVO 2 White) $35
This attaches to the Dot and plugs in to the power socket, then the power connect to the Evo unit. This allows you to use it not connected for up to 5 hours or longer on stand-by and you can easily move it from room to room without have to reconnect to the WiFi.
