- Sometimes a different version of google play works instead of one that you have on your machine. so try to find a different version of google play(older or newer version) and try.
 
6. Adam’s Solution
 
- Set your mobile in “fligt mode” just to get rid of all the error messages from Google Play Store.
- Go to your application manager, then scroll to the right to “all apps”. Go to the very bottom and check that there are no deactivated apps/processes there. If so, enable them.”
- Deactivate “flight mode”. Now it should work again.

 
7. Use a different market application
 
- You can also use a different market app like 1mobile: “http://www.1mobile.com/” or SlideME: “http://slideme.org/” There are so many different android market apps, and it is up to you which one you will use!

      • Did you mean there is no free space to install apps ? You can try to install it on a external memory too.

  11. 1. Set your mobile in “fligt mode” just to get rid of all the error messages from Google Play Store.

    2.Go to your application manager, then scroll to the right to “all apps”. Go to the very bottom and check that there are no deactivated apps/processes there. If so, enable them.”
    .
    3. Deactivate “flight mode”. Now it should work again.

    It seems like if some processes are deactivated that might be needed for Google Play Store this problem will occur under certain (unknown) conditions.

    Anyway, It worked for me. Good luck! :-)

  21. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks

    • Hello Jay,

      It is not your web browser issue. We are currently re-designing our website, and please if the compatibility option is turned on in IE browser, please turn it off. Thank you!

  29. Google Play had stopped on my new tablet (only had the tablet for a couple of weeks). Tried Google search looking for some kind of ‘heads up’ notice from Google or Android. Found your page through browsing. Tried the first suggestion, and viola, Google Play is working again. Thank you so much for a simple, step by step fix.
