If it was reported lost or stolen, this is for a reason. You should contact Amazon to return the device to its proper owner, and the police to bust the person that sells "lost or stolen" goods. You might even get your money back.

My new fire tablet 8GB Black keeps telling me I have a registration error when I try to put my e-mail and password into it...what to do next?


solution1:
If you think you're entering the correct Amazon email address and password you should contact Kindle Support. Tap the word Help at the top of this screen and then follow the path for Contact Us. Choose "Call Me" under "Phone" and they will call you promptly ready to assist you. You can also use Live Chat but I find Phone to be the best option. Do not use email as the answers are often incorrect or you end up calling anyway after wasting precious time.


solution2:
- you need to have a wireless connection to Register - either WiFi or 3G/4G
- you need to have a Kindle that was not reported as stolen or lost or blacklisted - will NOT be allowed to Register
- you need to have an Amazon Account ID email and password

How do i register my previously owned kindle fire tablet?


If it's still registered to the previous owner, call the police and ask if that serial number machine was reported stolen! I hope you have a RECEIPT from the pawn shop!

Lost kindle how can I cancel it?


If your Kindle is lost or stolen, or you transfer ownership to another person, you will need to deregister your Kindle from your Amazon.com account. While registered, your Kindle can access your account. A user can make purchases using your 1-click settings, which could place significant charges on your credit card.

I found my lost kindle, it is all ready active but I can't register it.I trried in my kindle but when I get to submit my password and e-mail nothing happens


Did you report it lost/stolen? If it's already active it may still be registered.

Log on to Amazon.com, click help under the address bar. Click device support, You should see a list of your devices. In left column you'll see Contact Us. Click and fill in info and they will call or email you back with help.

I need to de register my kindle because I lost it in traveling.


This is from M. Francis Professor of Kindology on Amazons customer service forum

Standard advice for lost/stolen Kindles:

You want to deregister your device first and foremost to prevent someone from purchasing items with your account.

Immediately go to your 'Manage Your Kindle' page:
http://amazon.com/manageyourkindle

Scroll down the left-side menu and select 'Manage Your Devices'
Find the Kindle that is lost/stolen.
**BE SURE TO WRITE DOWN THE SERIAL NUMBER OF THE DEVICE, FOR FUTURE REFERENCE**
Then click 'Deregister'

** You will need that serial number when you contact Customer Support, and to identify your device from a Lost & Found, and also it will be needed if you file a police report or file an insurance claim to your homeowners or rental insurance policy.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then, contact Customer Service and report the loss/theft. Amazon cannot help you locate your Kindle, but they will use the serial number to block the device from being registered in the future by someone else. Do this soon, because if the person who might now have your Kindle already registered it to their own Amazon account, it cannot be blocked from registering at your request any longer.

If you find your Kindle later, contact Customer Service again to reverse the process. To contact CS, click the orange 'Contact Us' button on the right side of this page, or use this link:
https://smile.amazon.com/gp/help/contact-us/kindle-help.html

Don't use the email option, but use the Phone option (if available from your location) or Chat option. By using the Phone option, after you send your phone number in, an Amazon Representative will call you back in a minute or two, sometimes sooner.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have Active Subscriptions:
You will also want to make sure that you cancel any active subscriptions. Canceling the subscription will ensure that you are no longer billed; you'll also receive a pro-rated refund for remaining issues you already paid for. You always have the option of subscribing at a later date.

Go to your 'Manage Your Kindle' page:
http://amazon.com/manageyourkindle

Then, scroll down the left-side menu and select 'Subscription Settings'
For each subscription you have, use the 'Actions' button to the right of the title and select 'Cancel Subscription'.

It has been stolen what do i do


If you are 100% sure the device was stolen you need to report it to the proper authorities, and that's all you can really do, considering the warranty doesn't cover loss or theft. Oh, and next time don't get it stolen. ;)

My nephew got a new digiland tablet for Christmas it came locked,how do i unlock it.


I bought a Kindle Fire from a pawn shop. I called Kindle and they walked me through the steps to register and when it wouldn't register, he checked the serial# turns out it had been stolen and the person had it locked so no-one could ever use it. It had not been reported stolen to police, just locked through Kindle. Oh yeah, point being, call the manufacturer tho get it unlocked
