Hello Elizabeth! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Please try the following:

1. On your computer, go to the website below:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/css/homepage.html/ref=topnav_ya
, then there, click on Change Account Settings
, then you can edit/change your name and password *****

(Note: if you do not remember your amazon account password, then you can reset it at the website https://www.amazon.co.uk/password first, then try the above suggestion again.)

2. If needed, please go menu/settings/device, etc. on the kindle, and deregister it (deregister the current email address on your son put on it), then register/sign in with your own Amazon account/email address and Amazon account password.

Note: if you cannot find the de-registration option on the kindle, please let me know the exact model of your kindle.

Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you.

Well Viet,

Password ***** I think! Many thanks.

Went through de-registering process. However, still reading "Hello

elizebeth" instead of "Hello Elizabeth" on welcome page. Model number I

think is 501/1317. Anymore suggestions?

Thanks,

Elizabeth

You're welcome. Sorry, here is the last step. Can you go to your Amazon account at the website below:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/manageyourkindle

, then there, click on Your Devices near the top
, then click on Edit next to your kindle device
, then update your name, then click on Save.

Viet,

Managed to save correct name but still not correc on welcome page

Expert:  Viet - E-Reader Tech replied 3 years ago.

I'm sorry, I was not available when you replied back. So the correct name is ***** ***** at the Amazon website http://www.amazon.co.uk/manageyourkindle, but it still does not show correctly on the kindle. Please do this:

- Press & hold the power on/off button for about 30 seconds, then turn it back on and check.

- If that does not work, please go menu/settings/device, etc. on the kindle, and reset it to factory defaults, then it will let you re-set up the kindle fresh.

Please let me know. Thank you,
