Felix, on my android phone, you hold it so the thin red line appears to lie

recognises the barcode automatically.

But if you would like to try the kindle app for Android on your tablet, then
all of this is a diversion.  I'd suggest you enable its internet connection,
point the browser at www.amazon.com, and look for "Get Amazon apps for
Android" under the search box. It's what I see anyway.

Thanks for the news that the kindle app exists. I'm giving it a try now.

If I tap the icon from the opening screen, the screen goes briefly blank
and then returns to its previous display.

Tapping the camera icon is not an option when the bar-code scanner is
loaded (the screen is totally blank except for a thin red line and a
brief message at the bottom of the screen).

Persuading the scanner to read and record the bar-code is still beyond my
