Hello! Thank you for contacting; I am Russell H., an Expert here at, and I will do what I can to answer your question as well as it can be answered.

Purchasing a Kindle online does not register it to your account - and that, registering it to your account, is necessary on receiving it and setting it up for the first time.

Entering a new password *****'t work - except if you are assigning a new password ***** the new device, as opposed to registering it to Amazon. Password ***** have to be done, for online accounts like an account, by entering the old password ***** or logging in with the old password *****

Then after registering the new device with the old password, you can change your password ***** I think.
