Customer Question

I just received my new Paperwhite. The language choice was in Italian. As I tried to select English, it immediately wed of Italian, how can I change it short of sending it back to Amazon? Too, if I order a book, will it automatically come to my Paperwhite or to my ancient Kindle?
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: I believe it was purchased around 2010. I cannot find a model #. Too, I believe it is a DX. I cannot use it because I cannot find a new charging cord. (The tip is broken.)
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Are you talking about my new Paper White or my old Kindle?
JA: No. I'm the Technician's Assistant.
Customer: Have you read my initial statement concerning changing my Paper White from Italian to English?
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?

I'm sorry about the issue. Please press and hold the Power on / off button on your Kindle Paperwhite for about 30 seconds, then turn it back on and check.

- Please try the following steps in order to change the language back to English:

1. Press the menu 3-bar (or 3-dot) icon at the upper right corner
2. Then tap on the 2nd to last option (usually the 6th option) (which means Settings)
3. Next, tap on the 2nd to last option (usually the 4th option: Device Options)
4. Next, tap on the last option (usually the 5th option: Language and Dictionaries)
5. Next, tap on the 1st option (Language)
6. Next, tap on English...
7. Next tap on OK (the 2nd button at the bottom right.)
8. Next, tap on OK again (the 2nd button)
