Hi there and welcome

It is a scam page, it tries to trick you, it is just a web page

Do the following please

Remove the charger from the Kindle and hold the power button to off for 35 seconds.

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

Let me know the results please

Thank you
