Both my echo Dots are dual channel stereo from the headphone socket so it
sounds like a hardware fault either with your Dot or the Cable.
The way to find out for sure is to simply plug in a pair of
earphones/headphones that you know are fine and see if they work properly. IF
not it is probably an Echo fault. It is probably then cheaper to replace your
Dot rather than seek a repair though cleaning out the socket may also be worth
if on the other hand your headphones work fine there may be some intolerance
with the existing cable you are using. Some cables work OK with some sockets
and not with others I find. You could try another new cable to see if you get
a better result.

Subject: [access-uk] Connecting Echo dot to old hifi
And a very merry Christmas to you all!!
I have an old amplifier and speakers which I’d like to be able to play music on
from the internet / my phone. I currently have a phono cable with a 3.5mm
headphone jack on it which I’ve been using to manually connect to my iPhone
when I want to play music through it. I’d like however to be able to do this
wirelessly and so one of the thoughts I had was to connect an Echo dot or
similar device via the headphone jack to the amp. I’ve just tried it and found
that the audio from the Echo dot only comes out of one of my speakers, does
anyone know if the Echo dot’s headphone socket is only capable of mono?
I was also thinking I could get a Bluetooth audio receiver to do the similar
thing but I like the idea of being able to use an Echo dot or Google mini to
be able to play music via it.
Hope this all makes sense and someone can come up with some suggestions /
I have tried looking on the specs of the Echo dot but can’t find what I need.
With very best wishes,
