Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Can you please press and hold (or slide and hold) the Power on / off button / switch on the kindle for about 45 seconds, then turn it back on and check.

- If needed, go to menu, then go to Wi-Fi / wireless option and make sure it is connected to your Wi-Fi / wireless network name.

- If needed, disconnect the power cord(s) from your internet modem / router device(s) for a few minutes, then re-connect. Then wait a bit, then go to the Wi-Fi / wireless option on the Kindle and make sure it is connected to your Wi-Fi / wireless network name.

- If needed, go to menu, then device / settings, etc., and reset to factory defaults, and check.

- If it still does not work, please let me know the model of your kindle, such as regular kindle, kindle paperwhite, kindle fire, etc.

Please reply at the box below to continue troubleshooting. Thank you.

Hi. Yes I did.
Expert:  Viet - Android Tech replied 10 months ago.

Sorry, it is strange. After resetting the kindle, did it let you connect to your Wi-Fi and register / sign in your Amazon account?

What's the model of your Kindle PaperWhite, such as 7th Generation, 6th generation, etc.?

, then connect kindle to computer, then transfer books from the computer to kindle
