Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

To reset your Parental Controls password:

  1. Enter an incorrect password ***** times.
  2. Tap the orange link that says Reset Your Parental Controls Password. If you don't see this link on your screen, you may need to scroll down in the message window.
  3. Enter your Amazon account password (this is the password ***** used to register your device, and to sign in to Amazon).
  4. Enter your new Parental Controls password.

You can go onto your amazon account at and select "manage your device" and then select deregister for that Kindle. That resets the parental control password. Go to the device and hit resync. When thats done go into the settings gear, my account, and register it using your amazon account info. It will be as before, nothing lost.
