Hello, I'm having a problem using my Echo Dot, I have linked my Spotify account to the Dot but when I ask Alexa to play a specific track it repeats back to me what I ask it to play but plays something totally different, for example I added a track to my 'July 2020' playlist, Bryan Ferry 'Let's stick together', I ask Alexa to play Flock of Seagulls 'I ran' and it just plays Bryan Ferry 'Let's stick together' over and over, it is the same for any other track I ask for. Help! Thank you.

It may sound stupid but have you tried unplugging and starting again?
ah the mystery of modern science....can't help i am afraid but i'm sure that someone who is tech savvy will come along soon and help you.
First World problem. Dammit. Life is tough.

Anyway, the Great Red Blob will explain it shortly.
Whether the recipient understands it is another matter.

who on earth are you referring to...^^
Seriously ? Never saw him, eh? He knows everything.

I will probably be banned for this transgression.
AZ, how rude !!
Sometimes mine acts strange, I just run it off and start again and it seems to work.
Back to the OP, yes, unplug it then try again , good luck
Rude ? Not at all. You have your little clique & only certain people are allowed to speak. So be it. Enjoy.
Anyway, the red one is considered to be an expert on every topic.

Me having a clique on here ( splutter) you've no idea how funny that is AZ
Chris is extremely helpful although has never claimed to be any expert on anything
Somebody got outta the bed on the wrong side today!
I must have got out the right side then Zac, I think someone might have peed on AZs cornflakes this morning haha

How's Ted?
I googled it and found this advice.

'There is no definitive fix for the errors, but a good start to troubleshooting the problem is to reboot the speaker. Then unlink your Spotify account and sign in again.

To unlink Spotify, open the Amazon Alexa app and go to Settings > Music > Spotify. Tap Disable Skill and confirm by tapping Disable. Next, tap Enable to use and follow the instructions to log in to your account again.'
Ted is growing expon.....epanen......expernen.....
Very fast. He’s currently asleep in the crook (cruck?) of my arm. He’s looking more ‘dog’ than puppy, had his 2nd injection and is now on food 3 times a day instead of 4.
