If your Echo Dot has a pulsating orange ring, it’s probably in pairing mode and trying to connect to the internet. This isn’t a good sign. Typically, these devices are connected to the internet all the time, so you’ll want to know how to turn off the ring if this happens. Here are some ways to do this. Let’s take a look at a couple of the most common causes of this ring.
First, you’ll need to know how to disable the notification on your Echo. To turn off the light ring, tap the microphone button on your Echo and press the “mute” button. This will make the button unresponsive, but it will allow you to hear Alexa again if necessary. If the light is red, your Echo will also stop notifying you of incoming calls and emails. If you’d like to prevent the light from waking you up, you can disable the notifications by enabling DND mode.
Alternatively, you can turn off the green or orange light rings by turning off your Echo’s mute feature. This option will prevent your Echo from waking you up with alerts when you’re asleep or away. But this can sometimes be tricky if your Echo is not connected to the internet. To solve this, you can try to troubleshoot the issue through the Alexa app. Just make sure to check the network connection and turn off the mute switch.
