Expert:  Richard replied 4 months ago.

ok, first you need to de-register it which removes all content until you register it again

to do this

If you are not already on the Home screen, press the Home button. 2. Press the Menu button. Make sure that Whispernet is turned on. 3. Move the 5-way down until "Settings" is underlined and press to select. 4. Press the 5-way to select "register" or "deregister" from the Settings screen. 5. If you're registering Kindle, enter your user name and password (the e-mail address and password ***** with your Amazon account) using the keyboard. 6. Navigate the 5-way to select "OK" to finish the process or "Cancel" to abort.

Then repeat the process and choose register and register with your own account

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
