In such cases, you can try resetting the doorbell by pressing and holding the setup button for at least 20 seconds until the light turns off and then starts flashing again.

Ring Doorbell solid blue light
The speaker has been enabled. A solid blue light on a Ring Doorbell typically indicates that the device is in “Do Not Disturb” mode. This means that the doorbell will not ring or send alerts to your mobile device when someone presses the button.
The “Do Not Disturb” mode can be set manually through the Ring app or automatically scheduled for specific times of the day or week. When you don’t want to be disturbed, like during meetings or at night, this feature is great.
To turn off “Do Not Disturb” mode and enable alerts and ring notifications again, you can go to the Ring app, tap on the device, and toggle off the “Do Not Disturb” option. If the solid blue light persists even after disabling this mode, you may need to troubleshoot the device or contact Ring support for assistance.
