Factory Reset Your Kindle E-Reader

A factory reset (or factory default) is suggested before gifting or selling a device, and in some cases for troubleshooting.

Important: A factory reset removes all your personal data, returning the device to its original factory settings.
  1. From the home screen, select Menu.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Menu again then select Reset Device.

Upon completion of a factory reset, your device is deregistered from your Amazon account. To use the device, register it again.
