I'm also now seeing this behaviour :-(

I have 2.3.6 and similar issue. And as ell ISBN is working.

I was using kdewallet in previous versions, but I have checked that my
tellico rc file contains the correct Amazon key info so hopefully hat's
not the issue.

However, I found in anther answer from Robby that:

My file is: /usr/share/apps/tellico/amazon2tellico.xsl
Date is

So looks good.

So I decided to recompile tellico with the hint you mentioned:

The result is here:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<ItemSearchErrorResponse xmlns="http://ecs.amazonaws.com/doc/2011-08-01/"><Error><Code>RequestThrottled</Code><Message>Request from blacklis t_ARWQJC846MJ3N is throttled.</Message></Error><RequestId>b33a61c7-0a89-452f-9b32-6359f736cd75</RequestId></ItemSearchErrorResponse>

Seems I'm blacklisted, but I have no idea how.when it happened. Any idea
on that ?
