Thank you

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Screen message is - your kindle is unable to connect to wifi network. Would you like to enter the password ***** pr manually set up this network. This message repeats although i gave tried three different wifi servers
Expert:  Richard replied 12 days ago.

This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.

Remove the charger from the Kindle and hold the power button to off for 60 seconds.

Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the Kindle and connect it.

Let me know the results please

Thank you
