    I have a galaxy tab 8.9 the att version and the play store keeps crashing everytime I try to open it. This happened to my sony tablet s with youtube and when I did a reinstall it didnt fix the problem. It just fixed itself a few days later. Any thoughts?

    Go into settings; Applications; All; Google Play Store; Force Close; Clear Cache.
    Should work, otherwise restart you tablet.
    Hope this helps

    Go to settings, apps, all. GO to Play Store. Clear cache and data. Reboot immediately. See if that does it

    Same thing has happened to me. I Force Stop, Clear Data then immediately reboot and still the app will not open, or it tried then force closes. One thing to note, I did have some strange Facebook thing downloading earlier and I did stop that. I might have screwed something up?

    I had this problem and called Google Support. They were very helpful. What I had done is disabled the Download Manager when trying to get rid of the Facebook download notification. Go into Settings...Apps....All...then find and click on Download Manager. Note that if it is disabled it will be at the very bottom of the list of apps. Once you click on Download Manager you can click to enable it again. This worked for my problem at least so I'm posting hoping it may help others.

    Thanks Dorie I also disable my downloads when trying to stop this mysterious Facebook update. I followed your advice and went to Settings < Application Manager < All < Download at the end of list and I enabled it. Fixed the issue but this FB download is still downloading.

    Any custom ROM or stock.
    First of all make sure there is no data limit active or reached by going in
    Settings >> Data usage.

    2. Make sure time zone in settings is set correct. That helps if u have travelled to other zone or is wrong selected.

    3. You can clear data of play store by going in Settings >> apps setting >>all tab >> google play store>> clear data.

    4. If this doesnt work and u are on custom rom then flash gapps again or if u are on stock then wipe / reset phone.

    You can also try enabling the Google Account Manager of your device. This worked for me. For detailed steps, you can also visit the link HOW TO FIX GOOGLE PLAY STORE LOADING ISSUE - News - Bubblews
