I guess you're trying to eject the Kindle from the task bar "(safely remove hardware". Try going into Start/Computer/right click on Kindle/ select eject. This worked for me when I had the same problem.

Some android apps require a imei number with a phone number in order to work. Some of these apps include alternative texting apps, Google voice and others. Its not an android error, its just trying to save you from wasting time trying to get an app that will not work on your device.

SOURCE: Pin no. set in error on this tablet now we can't access the tablet at all because we ca't get past the pin no. Please help or advise how to restore to factor settings.

Do you mean that the PIN of the SIM card is locked?

The PIN is needed to access the SIM card.
If you remove the SIM card the tablet will not ask for a PIN.
You do not need to change anything in the tablet.
(If you would insert your SIM card in a phone, the same would happen when you launch the phone.)

I hope this helps.

Keep trying the unlock pattern. Once it rejects you it will ask you to sign in to your google account. If you don't have a google account type "null" in the user name line and "0000" for the password. I was locked out of my android phone and used this to get past the unlock pattern and back in to my phone.

    How do i unlock my screen i forgot my password


    Note: Your Kindle Fire lock screen password or PIN is different from your Amazon account password.
    Reset Your Kindle Fire Reset your Kindle Fire if you forgot your lock screen PIN or your parental controls password and need to regain access.

    If you have any content not saved in your Kindle Library in the Cloud, be sure to transfer that content from your device to your computer via USB.

    Important: Resetting your Kindle Fire will remove all content downloaded to it. Any content you purchased from Amazon is saved to your Kindle Library in the Cloud and will remain in the Cloud. You can download that content again if you register your Kindle Fire to your account again.
    1. From Home, swipe down from the top of the screen, and then tap More.
    2. Tap Device.
    3. Tap Reset to Factory Defaults, and then tap Erase Everything.

    Your Kindle Fire will restart.

    To use your Kindle Fire again, you'll need to connect wirelessly and register your Kindle Fire.

    My kindle fire HD 7 the wireless is disabled. How do I undiable it. thanx


    1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to show Quick Settings, and then tap Wireless.
    2. Verify that Airplane Mode is Off.
    3. Next to Wi-Fi, tap On.
    4. Tap a network to connect to it. If you see a lock icon, a network password is required. Enter the Wi-Fi network password, and then tap Connect.Note: If you don't know the password, check with the person who set up the network. This password is not your Amazon account password.

    After you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your Kindle Fire automatically connects to the network again when it's in range. If more than one network is in range, your Kindle Fire automatically connects to the last network used.

    Forgot pin to my kindle fire hd??


    If you can't remember your lock screen password or PIN, you will need to reset your Kindle Fire.

    Important: Resetting your Kindle Fire will remove your personal information (including your lock screen password or PIN), Amazon account information, and downloaded content and apps. Any content you purchased from Amazon is automatically saved to the Cloud. You can download that content when you register your Kindle Fire to your account again.

    1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left.
    2. Enter characters into the prompt ten times. You will receive several warning messages. Dismiss the warning messages, and continue entering characters into the prompt.

    After you've entered the incorrect password or PIN ten times, your Kindle Fire will reset.
