Hi,

The only way to fix the issue is to perform a remote factory reset which will wipe the Kindle back to factory settings. Once you register the Kindle again, all of your books, etc will appear.

  1. From Your Devices, select a device that supports Manage Your Device.
  2. Select the Device Actions drop-down menu, and then select an option:

ok, my kindle told me that I don't have a registered kindle. In turn, they want me to buy a kindle. My husband gave my kindle to me several Christmases ago. And it was registered. I did everything I was told to do to make sure everything would be covered.
This is the 1st time I have needed any help at all.
