Someone kindly gave me a do i set it up please?

First, I'm not a AMAZON Kindle Tech.
* If it is "Open" (unlocked) then charge it up using the micro USB slot.
* If you can turn it on and the main menu goes on. Swipe the "Padlock" icon to open. Then swipe from top to bottom to get the menu display (for Kindle fire), Paper white will need to press the mode button (only button on the face of pad)
* If this is still a registered device then the regular menu will pop up and you will need to access the device menu by swiping top of screen downward. Select "+More" which will pull up the "Settings" menu. Select "My Account". Select "Deregister" continue and set up your Amazon account.
* If you want to wipe everything and reset the kindle (as giving it away to someone else) then go to "Settings" menu and select "Device". Select "Reset to Factory Defaults" then follow instructions. This will wipe all data and your account info as well as emails, bank records, etc.
* Resetting the Kindle to factory will be the same as if you just bought it from the store. It will automatically go through the welcome screen and help you set up your kindle and give a short beginner's course.

Kindle paper white won't move from the first page that shows up.

Try swiping your finger across the middle of the screen from right to left. This action turns the page forward. Swiping your finger across the middle of the page from left to right turns the pages backwards. I don't think the icon on the bottom is for page turning.
