The Raspberry Pi OS images come with the "Real VNC" server which supports encryption and stronger authentication compared to legacy VNC servers.  You can either dumb down the Rpi's VNC server or consider using the RealVNC client on your end devices.  Since you're using an Amazon device which is heavily restricted, RealVNC might not be on their app store:

This seems to be a function of that version of VNC I noticed. I tried other VNC clients, with no issues. But I haven’t found a solution either. I think it might be related to that Windows AD line….

I use my RPI4 headless mode on my PC every day. I also have it hooked up to my TV via HDMI cable in case I need it. 
At this point, I am just going to step away and take a break for a few days before I get too frustrated. I have tried to use two different Kindle Fires, and my cell phone with no luck. Right now I have been trying to get it working on my Fire and I usually get the following message:
VNC Connection Failed!
Server did not offer supported security type. 

Constant searches on Youtube and Google show a lot of people having no trouble at all so i know it works, just not for me YET. I am making a goof somewhere I just need to figure out where.
