I can't get it to work. It won"t take a charge and won't turn on. That is why I spent over $400.00 for a new one. I have over 200 books on it with my favorite authors and I expect satisfaction. You must have a better fix for this!

Expert:  Dr. Fix-It replied 2 years ago.
You will need to factory reset the Kindle by unregistering from your account and then re-registering it, if cannot access from the device, then will have to do it from your computer: From your computer: Visit Manage Your Content and DevicesSelect Your Devices.Select your device or app and select Deregister in the Actions column.To confirm, select Deregister again on the pop-up window.
