    There is one way i know to fix this problem without factory reset. It is to go settings ->application manger -> all-> and clear data on contact and contact storage in app manager. This will fix the problem.

    But... Your data for contacts will be wiped away. So remember to BACKUP!

    How to Fix: Unfortunately, the process android.process.media has stopped

    This worked for me.
    Go to Settings - All Apps - Media Storage - Disable (if enabled) - Force Close - Enable.
    If Enabled, then Disable - Force Close and Enable again.
    Reboot Phone.
    You should be good to go.
    Hope it works for you too!

    Thumbs up Re: How to Fix: Unfortunately, the process android.process.media has stopped

    I just updated my Galaxy Not 3 and of course I also got that dreaded error message - "unfortunately, the process.android.media has stopped" so for the last 2 hours I have been searching the web for a fix. This is how I landed here. After reading nearly all of the Q/As I was getting ready to do the unthinkable "Factory Reset". Then I came across Student6000 answer... Well I'm here to say Thank You, Student6000 solution worked. I tried several other so called "Solutions" but none worked But Student6000 DID!!! So thank you very much.

    I upgraded my SG-P6210 from ICS 4.0.4 to JB 4.1.2 two days ago & have been free of this problem after enduring it for at least a year. (Used method in How to Update Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (Wi-Fi) P6210 with Android 4.1.2 UBMH1 Jelly Bean Official Firmware - Honai of Android to upgrade & used method referenced by that article to re-root. I'm in the USA but used the JB version for Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru cited in the article.)

    On my Galaxy S5 I followed Student 6000's advice. But on mine the difference was after going to ALL, I hit Reset app preferences. Then the message stopped. Thank you all!

    Smile Re: How to Fix: Unfortunately, the process android.process.acore has stopped

    Mine error was 'the process android.process.acore has stopped' -- and it started giving that error when I deleted Yahoo.mail app, so it seemed that Contacts MIGHT have had something to do with it...

    I tried Student6000's solution in message #52, and it worked.
    I adore you!!!

    I know this post is old, but I found the solution to this issue for anyone else who is experiencing it!


    I ran into this issue when I logged out of my Gmail and again when an update happened to my Galaxy S4 (SGH-I337).

    The error message was "Unfortunately the processandroid.process.acore has stopped working."

    Clear the app cache and data:
    From the Home screen, press the Menu key.
    Touch Settings.
    Touch Applications.
    Touch Manage Applications.
    Touch All.
    Select the application that is having issues.

    Note: For the following errors:
    android.process.acore: Select Contacts storage.
    android.process.mms: Select Messages.
    com.google.process.gapps: Select Download Manager or Downloads (At the bottom of the list). Make sure the Downloads Manager is enabled. If it isn't, enable it before proceeding.
    TWlauncher process com.sec.android.app: Select TWLauncher.
    Touch Clear data and Clear cache if they are available. This resets the app as if it was new, and may delete personal data stored in the app.
    If you turned off sync, return to Accounts & sync and turn it back on. If necessary, import any contacts you exported to the SD card.
    Uninstall all third-party party task managers, battery saver, or apps that close programs. For information, see Manage Applications: Manage memory on Android.
    Restart the device.
    Open the app to test if the problem happens again.
    If the problem recurs, uninstall the app (if possible).
    Wipe the cache partition to clear system memory.
    Note: To find steps for your device, search Support Community for: wipe cache [device name]

    For more details, I got the following information from this website: Force close error or process stops unexpectedly... | T-Mobile Support

    Hope this worked!

    This worked on my Galaxy S5 (SM-G900T), with the exception that step #5 was tapping the menu key on the upper right hand corner of the screen and then selecting 'reset app preferences'.

    Do you mean phone contacts or just contacts from emails and social media? Thanx

    That pop up was very annoying, I have faced the same problem after a try to get my phone rooted (it was rooted but unfortunately, the pop up appears). I have tried this method just before I think about factory reset. I have fixed the problem by connecting my Galaxy Note 3 (SCL22) Android 4.3 via a USB cable with windows computer using galaxy kies software. After opening galaxy kies and put my mobile switched on and connected to the pc with galaxy provided USB cable (it is important to use the USB cable come with the device). It took several attempt connecting the phone, but at last it recognized and connected. After being connected, click on the 'Tool' button and then click Automatic upgrade to latest firmware. If you click 'upgrade to latest firmware', you need to provide all information (serial number, etc) of your device manually. Wait for a while, do not touch you mobile or disconnect from the pc. After boot, restart your phone and connect again. After that you will get rid of that annoying pop up and will upgrade your phone to 4.4.2 kitkat.
