The Google Play Store is one of the apps we take for granted, mainly because it simply acts as an intermediary between the user and his valuable apps. Hell freezes and the sky falls as soon as it stops working. How will you download the new app you were so desperately waiting for?
There is no specific manual on repairing the Google Play Store, but we've put together a number of tips and tricks that will most likely get your valuable App Store moving and running again. Let's jump right into the bare essentials before you go crazy without access to the Play Store!
Make sure this is a user issue
Before you take a series of steps to resolve a problem, make sure that the issue is not with Google itself. The best way to do that is to go to a place like the Down Detector to see if others are reporting problems. If enough people claim similar problems, this could be a temporary server problem that will resolve with some patience.
The problem could be Google
Close the Google Play Store
Sometimes a simple force is enough to close! You can do this by simply removing the Google Play Store from your multi-tasking app switcher. Or go to Settings> Apps> All and then go to the Google Play Store and click on "Force Stop" "840" height = "473" srcset = "https: //cdn57.androidauthority .net / wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Down Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 840×472.jpg 840w, https: //cdn57.androidauthority. net / wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Down Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 300×170.jpg 300w, https://cdn57.androidauthority.net / wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Down Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 768×432.jpg 768w, https://cdn57.androidauthority.net/ wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Down Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 16×9.jpg 16w, https://cdn57.androidauthority.net/wp -content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid-Android-Power-Off-Shut-Down-Reboot-Screenshot-Airplane-M ode-Power-Menu-32×18.jpg 32w, https: //cdn57.androi dauthority.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Paranoid-Android-Power-Off-Shut-Down-Reboot-Screenshot-Airplane-Mode-Power-Menu-28×16.jpg 28w, https: //cdn57.androidauthority .net / wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Down Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 56×32.jpg 56w, https: //cdn57.androidauthority. net / wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Down Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menus 64×36.jpg 64w, https://cdn57.androidauthority.net / wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Dut Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 712×400.jpg 712w, https://cdn57.androidauthority.net/ wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Down Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu -1000×563.jpg 1000w, https://cdn57.androidauthority.net/wp -content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shut Down Reboot Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 1200×675.jpg 1200w, https: //cdn57.a ndroidauthority.net/wp -content / uploads / 2016 /06/Paranoid-Android-Power-Off-Shut-Down-Reboot-Screenshot-Airplane-Mode-Power-Menu-792×446.jpg 792w, https://cdn57.androidautority.net/wp-content/uploads/ 2016/ 06 / Paranoid Android Power Off Shutdown Shutdown Restart Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 1280w, https: //cdn57.androidautority. net / wp-content / uploads / 2016/06 / Paranoid Android Power-Off Shutdown Shutdown Restart Screenshot Airplane Mode Power Menu 1340×754.jpg 1340w, https://cdn57.androidauthority.net /wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Paranoid-Android-Power-Off-Shut-Down-Reboot-Screenshot-Airplane-Mode-Power-Menu-770×433.jpg 770w "Size =" (max width: 840px) 100vw, 840px “/>
I'm not sure how much this works, but I've heard that many people say switching on Airplane mode and then shutting down the Google Play Store will be back on track , Hey, it's not a complicated process and it sure is. Why not try, right?
Turn Wi-Fi on and off
Just like Airplane mode, Wi-Fi could be the problem. Not to mention that your network may have simple connectivity issues! Turn Wi-Fi on and off and play with the Google Play Store for a while. It could only help.
Restart your router
I'm not an expert, but I've fixed one or two Wi-Fi issues by simply restarting my router. It may not always make sense, but try it out, and you can manipulate Wi-Fi magic to make things work again.
Restart your phone!
As in the good old Sometimes, modern electronics sometimes only need one hit to function properly.
As in ancient times, modern electronics sometimes only need one hit to function properly. OK, maybe not a real crack, but you have to use everything again, and sometimes a simple restart is enough. This takes a minute or two and often fixes problems.
Deleting the Google Play Store Cache
Cache memory is a fantastic tool. By storing data locally, the phone can reduce data usage and speed up load times. This is data that would otherwise have to be downloaded each time you access a page. This is not required if there are no changes! The bad thing is that sometimes older data can accumulate and they can misbehave. For this reason, it is recommended to clear the cache occasionally.
To clear the Google Play Store cache, go to your settings and select the "Apps" option. Just go to Google Play Store and tap it. You get a variety of options, including the Clear Cache button.
Clear Google Play Store Data
Is clearing the cache not enough? It's time to remove some of the bigger guns and make things cleaner. To delete related data, simply access your settings and go to the App Manager as in the cache to clear the cache. Instead of "Clear Cache", you click on "Clear Data".
Remember, this will clear the application. The next time he accesses the Google Play Store, he must log in again and collect all data.
Note that some apps are disabled
Note that some apps may require each other to to work properly. Especially when it comes to system apps like the Google Play Store. Have you recently disabled apps? This could be the cause of your Play Store issues.
Just go to Settings> Apps> All and scroll all the way down. This is where disabled apps go when they shut down. If you see disabled services, just enable them and see if this helps.
Checking Your Date and Time Settings
This may sound like a silly suggestion, but this can often be the cause of many problems in the Google Play Store. This may be because Google's servers have issues with date and time settings. Go back and turn it on automatically if it does not. If this does not help, try setting the time and date as accurately as possible. Just play with the time and date settings.
It may sound like a silly suggestion, but date / time settings are often the cause of Google Play Store issues.
Remove Proxy or VPN Settings
Many VPN / proxy users indicate that problems have arisen across the board. Did you try to disable them (if you use them)? The proxy settings are under WiFi and you can access them by long pressing the name of your router and clicking "Advanced". The VPN settings are in the "Wireless and Networks" section under "More."
Uninstall it is easy!
If all fail, it's probably best to uninstall the Google Play Store. The only trick is that this is a system app that you really can not easily get rid of. You can uninstall the updates and transfer the application to an older version. You can update it later, so do not worry – this is a safe procedure.
Just go to Settings> Apps> Google Play Store and tap "Uninstall Updates."
Could the problem be Google Play Services?
We could say that Google Apps are the engine driving Android devices. Yes, we're talking about this weird app that needs to be updated from time to time when trying to get another application. And many do not know what it is, but it's the backbone of your phone. Google's applications offer some of the most exciting features available, and all are supported by Google Play Services.
Like any other app, Google Play Services may fail, so it pays to play with it if you have any kind of Google-related issues. Delete both the cache and the data by following the same steps from above. The only difference is that instead of accessing the Google Play Store, you switch to Google Play services in App Manager.
Remove and re-enter Google Account
I do not have much faith in this account, but some suggest that you use your Google Account to resolve certain issues. I suppose it's worth a try before jumping to the last (and most extreme) tip. Just go to Settings> Accounts and select your Google Account. Tap the three-dot menu button and click "Remove." Then add your account again and try to access the Google Play Store.
I do not think much of this, but some suggest you could reset your Google Account system to fix certain issues.
Receive an Error Code
