I cant download apps after my sister gave me her old kindle fire, why and how do I fix it

Technician's Assistant: When did this downloading issue start with your Kindle Fire?

When I put my info into it, and took her info out

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a force reboot (pressing and holding the power button for a minute)?

No I will try it

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the E-reader Expert to know before I connect you?

I just want to get apps, I tried to power it off, no help

Electronics Technician: Cris, Technician replied 7 months ago

You need to create an Amazon account with your information this way you have the info and can log into your Kindle with it.

Do you have an Amazon account?

OK, use the link below you will probably have to setup 1-Click Payment Settings. It will require you have a credit card on file but does not charge for any free apps. Click Edit Payment settings and save. Then see if you can now download the app.
