    You might need to force close the Google Play Store.
    Here's how;
    Go to Settings
    Select: Applications.
    Select: Running
    Select play store. -May be called Google Play or Google Play Store-
    Select: Force Close and Clear Cache.

    Hopefully this helps

    Well at least you know that now.. the other thing I was going to tell you to try is to go into Settings; Accounts and Sync; What ever google account your play store is used with, and sync that account. This is what I did with my phone and I have helped other people with this problem, and this usually solves the issue.

    Just letting you know

    Thanks for posting this. Turns out I was having the same issue. I assume if the devices date and time doesnt match up correctly then Google Services won't sync to your device. As a side note, this problem will cause your 4G and Wifi icons to turn grey because Blue icons indicate the phone is connected to Google Services.

    I must have turned off Automatic Date and time when I was on vacation and wanted the phone to show the time at home instead of the local time. Again, thanks for the tip!

    Why the hell does the date and time have to be set on auto for a tablet to connect to Google Play? That is Absolutely Absurd and Unbelievable!!

    Okay so I'm totally new here and hopefully I'm posting this in the right place. Here's a summary of my situation:

    Keep getting a notification a new version of Pandora is out, so I tried loading the Play Store. It attempts to load, but then force quits. This happened several times. I restarted my device and the same thing kept happening. I cleared the data, chose to force quit it myself and the same thing keeps happening. I even (accidentally) uninstalled my version and had to find another version of Play Store, but it just keeps force quitting on me.

    I have an old Samsung Replenish, 3G. The version of Play Store I re-downloaded (from "Android Police"?) is version 4.1.6 (Which oddly enough is taking up more space than the version I accidentally uninstalled. There's also currently no version of "Google Play services" as I long, long, long ago deleted this as it seemed useless and was taking up too much space. However, I don't believe *that* to be the problem, as between then and now I never had a problem updating or adding and deleting other apps.

    Um.. not sure of any other info that might be helpful. Thanks so much in advance for any help anyone might be able to offer.

    PS: I know the obvious answer is probably update my old, very outdated phone, but unfortunately, that's a last resort at this point as money is very tight.

    You could always root and update your phone to the newest android and get the play store working again.
