Default Google Play Server Error

Hi,

Last night I was trying to download Dolphin HD browser from Google Play on my Samsung Galaxy Note. The download didn't start due to an error (Code -101). I closed Google Play app and reopened it, but it started to give out Server Error, Retry? I tried many things; Clear cache, clear data, uninstall the app and go to the old built-in Android Market. No avail. Any ideas? Thanks

Unhappy

Same just happened to me in my ASUS Transformer TF101! Got the same error when trying to download a free app and then suddenly the market says server error. Can't get it to work again no matter what I try!

Smile How I got mine fixed.

I've had the same problem since yesterday. I was trying to download a new app when suddenly I got the -101 error and then 'Server error' repeatedly after that.

Here's what I did that finally got it to start working..

1. I cleared the data for Google Play.
2. I then switched off my device and then removed the sim card from it.
3. I used a different sim card and switched my device back on.
4. As usual, it detects the new sim, then I opened up Google Play.
5. Accept the agreement, and the market finally loads.
6. I replaced my original sim, and voila, Google Play is finally working.

I'm not sure if this will help any of you guys, but it did fixed mine. I've tried every other way stated in the forums except factory reset which I think is unnecessary.

Do give this method a try, and I hope it will the lot of you. Cheers~

Good news, Google Play is working again. I didn't do anything, it has just worked on its own.
