Still unsuccessful. read out wifi networks (2) eircom 57518798 upc0041623.im getting nowhere and ive paid 30 dollars

Yes, we need to eliminate the causes for this Patrick, and it can take a number of steps.

We are going to have to reinstall the firmware on the Kindle. this is going to return the device to new, so you will need to set it up again, like you did when you first received it, and download your books.

To do this, From the Home Screen select: MENU / SETTINGS / HIT MENU AGAIN WHEN IN SETTINGS / RESET DEVICE

Complete this, then register the Kindle with the Amazon account you initially used.

Then try to purchase a book and Let me know the results please

Thank you

I find this breakdown of kindle most unsatisfactory. THe bit of help that I got wasnt worth tuppence to me,much less 30 dollars. Now you want more money to show me a video. When I got a present of kindle last Christmas my daughter set it up for me. I am 83 years old and expected a blow for blow instruction as what moves to take to repair your impliment for reading, When I foolishly paid 30 dollars I thought my kindle would be put right, Now I have to wait about a month before my daughter is here again to try to restart it. I dont think a refund of my money request to be unreasonable. Thanks to your technical expert for the bit of heap I did get but your policy is just a money making pursuit.

Hello Patrick,

No, you do not need to pay to watch the video, this I never said.

Have you actually followed the instructions in the video?

Please let me know.

Thank you
