Where is the Reset Button on the Original Amazon Echo Smart Speaker




The reset button on the generation one (original) Amazon Echo smart speaker can be found on the underside of the unit, as pointed at by the purple arrow in the next picture.  The reset button is inside a small hole there. To actuate it, insert the end of a small to medium-sized paper clip.  Press GENTLY, just enough to activate the button.  Keep pressing for approximately five seconds to initiate the factory default state reset process.
