Step By Step Guide

Factory Reset
  1. First of all you need to save all your personal data, i.e. files and videos, in case you have not saved it in the Amazon cloud storage. By using a USB cable, connect your Kindle Fire to your computer and then use your PC’s file browser in order to copy the files.   

  2. Type a random password into your Kindle Fire for the consecutive five times. Your tablet will give you an option to reset the tablet back to the factory settings, after the fifth attempt. 

  3. Touch “Reset.” Firstly it will result in an automatic restart and then your tablet will take some time in erasing your files and restoring the factory settings.

  4. When your tablet restarts you need to choose your Wi-Fi network. Touch “connect” after entering your Wi-Fi passcode. You should see “Register Your Kindle” screen before your eyes.

  5. Here you need to type your correct email address and password in the appropriate fields and touch “Register” after that. You should see your tablet beginning the new user tutorial. You are still able to access the content and apps you bought from Amazon or saved in cloud storage.


Resetting Parental Control

  2. Choose “Manage Your Devices,” press the “Actions” button and then press “Deregister Device.” Here you need to know that by doing so you will not be able to use apps or ebooks you bought from Amazon. But you can easily access them when you register again.

  4. Type the email address and password you use for your Amazon account. Finally Touch “Done.”
