@AM Sandra: First off, as always thanks to the Mod team for your help.
I have to say the "clean out fake accounts" seems to have had a dramatic and positive effect!
Around that time there was a large "cover many points" moderator post and there was talk about beefing up the Alexa/Smart support team and improving the Alexa/Smart HELP pages to make sure they were relevant to the region and readily Alexa/Smart accessible.
I regret that the HELP pages still seem to be a bit clunky and "generic" rather than regional.
I know it is not @Amazon Moderator controlled, but could you please raise a flag with the Powers That Be that it may be time to really review and improve the Alexa/Smart pages - this seems to be a major revenue target for Amazon and the current pages just are not good enough :(
Sorry to bother you and please feel free to redact this post :) Very best wishes, CW.

The 3 solutions seem to be RESET / RESTORE FACTORY DEFAULTS / CHECK YOUR REGION. What was the question again?
14 (Yes 14!) accounts supporting my posts for accuracy and help!
The ONLY Wombat given a biscuit for great advice! Woohoo!
For anyone interested, if you have two echo devices and an echo button in the same room you can use the echo button to get one echo device to issue commends to the other. As long as a short wait is inserted between the commands it’ll work. Without the pause, only the last command gets executed.
For instance, I’ve set up a routine that uses an echo dot to send voice commands to an echo show:
say “alexa, play ocean sounds”
wait 1 min
say “alexa, set a sleep timer for 6 hours”
wait 1 min
say “alexa, screen off”
As I said, you do need two echo devices, as the echos won’t talk to themselves. Obviously both echo devices need different wake-words.
