    My play store not working
    There must be a dozen possible fixes in this thread. Have you read the thread, and tried any of them yet? Do that first, and if it still doesn't work let us know. But don't ask us to repeat what you can read just as easily as anyone else.

    Maybe this might have been helpful if I could download ES File Explorer on the Play Store. Unfortunately, my Play Store is not working that's why I've come here. Thanks for the help anyway.

    I don't see anyone suggesting downloading ES from the Play Store. I do see half a dozen other suggestions. Have you tried any of them?

    Finally found a way to fix the store for me.

    **ROOT IS REQUIRED!**

    Here is a short fix for the No Connection Error on play store. It may not work on all devices.

    1. Download Total Commander from Play Store.
    2. Install it in your Device.
    3. Open Total Commander and goto Root of System. (/ )
    4. Open the etc folder.
    5. Find the file named "hosts", and hold it for 3 seconds. Choose edit file, and choose Total Commander Text Editor if prompted.
    6. Add ---> " # " <--- before 2nd line like this " #74.125.93.113 android.clients.google.com "
    7. Save the file.
    8. Reboot your device
    9. Add Google Account
    10. Done!

    I know it says download total commander from the app store but just go to this link since anyone here looking for a solution obviously can't access the play store.
    Total Commander - Android

    Once you download the apk move it to your phone via usb connection and then go to your phone and use any type of file manager app to access the apk and install it then follow the instructions listed above. This worked for me when everything else failed so i figured i would help anyone else in my situation.

    I had the same issue and I just had to fix the time and date. It was way off and the play store will not connect if it is wrong.
    May Google reward you with a bunch of money! You saved me a lot of hassle!!! Love you (nohomo ^^)

    Another thing you can try is: -

    Open the phone dialler and type *#9900# to open SysDump then press the "...fast dormancy" button.
    On my Samsung Galaxy Ace, this is the fifth option down.
    (If it was on, the button will show "disable..." - If it was off, the button will show "enable...")

    Maybe your mobile network (carrier) transfers data better with this off, or it's better switched on. Play Store can be very fussy about data connection quality, unlike a lot of other apps. Perhaps this is because it uses a constant stream of background data.

    This youtube video helped me.

    I am sure it is the best trick.. specially since the first instruction is to download ES Explorer from play stores... very smart indeed!! If I could download from play store, I would not be on this page

    Check your settings and toggle your airplane mode and also your mobile data should be on. Found my son turned off mobile data, even though I was connected to wireless nothing worked until that was turned back on!

    Hi Mior,

    Your English is fine.

    I just wondered: when you used the Android Device ID software to reveal the Google Services Framework ID (and various other IDs related to your device), what did you do afterwards to "fix" the Google Services Framework and hence the Play Store?

    Exactly what my problem was! Although, as I last used my tablet 2 months ago, and it was fine, I'm not sure how my date got changed to 1/3/2012 4:33am.. huh....

    Data and airplane mode fixes didn't work for me. But backing up to the beginning did.

    Opened google play app.
    Hit back button until it exited the app.
    Re-opened the app and it connected.

    To everyone complaining about the youtube video fix, google 'sideloading android'. In fact, sideloading isn't even necessary. You can download apps to your phone or tablet OTA from the Play Store by visiting the Play Store website on your computer and choosing to download to your device from there. This fix WORKS. I've had to do it myself a time or two. So seriously, do a little research and stop slamming the poor guy that posted it. BTW, ES File Explore should be an automatic install for everyone with an Android device. It is always one of my first five installs on a new device.
