I can't remember my Kindle passcode. Is there a way to reset or turn off the passcode without losing my content?

You need to reset your device to factory defaults. It will be wiped clean, but all your Amazon-bought content is safe and sound on their servers ("in the Cloud"), ready to be re-downloaded once you register your device again. You reset the device by entering "the magic passcode" which is for some reason no longer listed on help pages.

Try "resetmykindle" or "111222777"

If that doesn't work (some other passcodes were also metioned), ask good people at Amazon CS:

Thanks. I've been reading through multiple blogs and that's the common advice given. I was hoping to avoid "wiping it clean"! Oh well. Once I go through this anguish I assume I will be able to turn off the passcode feature, right???
