If you cannot remember the password for your Kindle, you can reset your password to regain access. Resetting your password will delete all content on your Kindle and you'll need to register your Kindle again before downloading items from your Kindle Library on

To reset your Kindle if you don't have the password:

Press and hold the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode.
Enter "resetmykindle" in the password field. Press the Keyboard button to return to the password menu and select submit using the 5-way controller.
Wait several minutes while your Kindle restarts.

Thanks for the info but what about all the books I have on it. Will I be able to access them from some place?!!! I have'nt used the kindle much as yet but am going on a 3 month Caravan trip and have downloaded several books to read while away!!!!!!

The books haven't gone anywhere. You will just have to re-register the Kindle to the account, then re-download them.

Thanks so much to you both!! I am back on track now and have everything back!!
