Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

Don’t Want to Register Your New Kindle

I purchased a new Amazon Kindle, model J9G29R.

Upon turning it on it asked me to connect to WiFi, which I did.

It then asked me to register with an Amazon account, or create a new one. There was no cancel or return option.

I held down the power button for 5 seconds until a menu appeared with the options “CANCEL”, “RESTART”, and “SCREEN OFF”. I chose “RESTART” and the Kindle restarted (took about a minute or two to finish loading). It did not ask me to register with an Amazon account after restarting, instead went straight to the main menu.

    Thanks for the tip. I assume you didn’t buy through Amazon? I think devices bought through Amazon are already pre-registered or tagged to your Amazon account.

    So how will you be using this Kindle? Without Amazon integration, I assume you’ll manually transfer over select Amazon books from whoever’s account (downloaded to computer 1st), or you might only be transferring over PDFs or ePub files to read over the Kindle?
