Thank you and no, no more payments are needed Carole

You will need to reset the Kindle, enter the password ***** up to 10 times and it should ask if you wish to reset it, choose yes, do the reset and it will be as a new kindle again.

You can then register it with your Amazon account and start using it again

Let me know please how you go
