Kindle device not recognizing the password
Sometimes Kindle shows an error in getting the password. In this case, you can use troubleshooting options.
Make sure you entered the right password or try some password variations. It may be you mistyped when you were originally setting up your new Kindle.
If this doesn’t work, rest your password by typing 111222777 in the password field and tap OK. However, your Kindle is wiped clean, and you have to register your device again with amazon and download the content.
Once you have set up your Kindle and bought books, nothing is left. Now you can start with reading books.
