    Settings-Device is not working

    hi!my friend sent me a kindle but the problem is she was not able to deregister it prior to sending it to me. Unfortunately, I cannot connect wifi and the settings- device is not responding.. I'm always getting an error prompt "Application settings is not responding" there's just an option to force close and wait but i f I choose wait it only hangs...I'm not a gadget savy so I don't know what to do. I searched about rooting the kindle fire but I really need to choose the "settings-device" so I can able to root my kindle to restore to original settings.

    I'm typing on my kindle so my answer will bee short and possibly confusing. First soft-reset the kindle by holding power btutton for like 30 seconds. O.ce its back on, are you able to reach the options menu in the upper right corner of the screen? If so, click more, device, reset to factory defaults. I did that and it returned my kindle to factory defaults.

    This is not possible On my kindle fire. Even after a soft reset, the same error pops-up as it did before. Trying to get into the "device" settings, it locks up showing "application 'privacy settings' is not responding". Isn't there a hard-reset somehow?

    Now... Upon clicking 'device', I get the error
    'Application Setting (in process com.android.settungs) is not responding.'

    'close'. and. 'wait'
