My kindle says I dont have a valid default credit card specified

Resolved Question:

My kindle says I don't have a valid default credit card specified for my Amazon.co.uk user account. I have checked and my credit card is there when I go into my account. Has my kindle gone nuts?

Hi,
My name isXXXXX will assist you.
I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

The first thing I suggest doing is resetting the Kindle – to do this, hold the power switch for approximately 20 seconds. This will do a complete reset of the Kindle. It may take a few minutes to initialize and then it will go through the setup again. Just enter the same information, including the account information. .

Please let me know if this does not work and we will continue troubleshooting this issue.

I have done as you advise. Kindle went through set up but didn't ask me for account details so I went ahead to try and buy a book and the same window came up advising me to set up a default credit card. This is my second kindle perhaps I can only buy books from my first kindle although I don't remember having to do this in the past.

Just found out what the problem was! Very simple really, my credit card needed updating as the expiry date had changed since I last used it on Amazon!

How daft am I!

Many thanks for your help!
