There is a password on this kindle. I played it the night before and it was fine. The next day it's in German--Mein Kindle and all games, books, and everything disappeared. I have not clue what happened. Very weird. I have another kindle and that one is fine????

Mein Kindle - My Kindle

Just teasing. I've never had that happen. Probably need a hard reset.

Double check that it wasn't accidentally deregistered from your Amazon account or reset to factory defaults.

You got the new Kindle Prophesy model, it's looking into the future . . . you have a trip to Germany planned soon and need to learn the language.

Seriously though, it sounds like it was accidentally deregistered and the language was set to German. Has anyone else been playing with it?
