Kindle 2 weird problem...

Hope someone can help.....picked up a kindle 2 (D00511) for nothing, but the problem is when I go Home_Menu_Settings 
I get the registration page? Settings and device menu is shown at top of screen but the registration page is blocking what's behind.?
I can't register because I can't get to settings to setup wireless connection.

Hope there's a Kindle expert out there!

Have you tried to register the Kindle to your Amazon account via the computer rather than trying to do it on the Kindle itself? That is what I had to do with my original Kindle a few years ago.
