well, it's not giving me a option on a wireless connection. this is what I'm doing on the top of the kindle, it touch the wi-fi icon, and wireless networking on/off, i touch on and it says enter your restrictions password XXXXX turn on wi-fi

ITCris :

Gotcha, I am sorry thought you needed the WiFi password XXXXX your router.

ITCris :

I apologize, if you don't know the password XXXXX you will need to reset the Kindle fire back to factory settings.

ITCris :

You can then register it with your account and your books will download back to the device.

Customer:

This thing was a gift, we bought in on amazon.com, do you mean that account?

ITCris :

Yes your kindle is registered with your amazon account. When purchased from amazon directly they register the device for you.

ITCris :

However once you reset the device you then re-register the kindle with your amazon account.

Customer:

ok how do i reset it?

ITCris :

To perform a factory reset on your Kindle Fire, tap the Quick Settings icon in the top right corner of the screen, then tap More. Tap "Device" and select "Reset to Factory Defaults."

Customer:

yes I found it, so after it turns back on i go to amazon.com and register it and the stuff i already bought will reload right?

ITCris :

After it reloads, connect to the WiFi.

ITCris :

Then register:



  1. Tap the Quick Settings icon.

  2. Tap the More icon.

  3. Tap My Account.

  4. Tap the Register button and enter the e-mail address and password XXXXX your Amazon account.


 

Customer:

ITCris :

Yes it will.

Once you register your account.
