Default Unable to download applications from Android Market (error 500)

Hi. I just purchased an Xperia Ray, but over the past few days I'm having problems downloading/updating applications from the Android Market.

When I try to download/update, I often get a prompt "Unable to download application due to an error. 500". It took me multiple tries over a few days before I could actually update my Gmail, Google maps, download Skype and so on... I've done what other threads have suggested, such as clearing of cache/data from market and the download manager, but they don't always work. Is there any way to ensure every download is a successful one?

Also, I read that the battery will adjust itself? That sounds pretty cool. I never really thought that was possible. Over the past few days I've been experiencing bad battery performance. If I set applications to refresh often, (like, maybe Facebook refreshes every 30 mins) will it severely drain the battery?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Since you already did the reset on the Market app, I'd suggest you to try a Repair Phone option on PC Companion just to confirm if this is a software problem.

And yes by settings the Sync frequency at 30 minutes it will use more battery since basically the internet connection will required to be active at all times and also it needs to sync with several apps. Hope this helps.

Angry Still not working

I have had the problem since i got my Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V.

1) I have uninstalled the market update (But you know how efficient they are and the new version is reinstalled almost as soon as i uninstall it)

2) I have factory reset the phone (Nada)

3) I have done a software repair (Nope)

4) Checked all my connectivity settings and proxy settings (well if the error were here i shouldnt be able to download any apps at all. I have been able to download a few of them without issue)

Any other ideas?

Do you have a problem with the Market while using 2G/3G mobile internet or a Wi-Fi connection?

You have mentioned sync settings. I have a similar question. Is it possible to disable background sync and allow specific apps like gmail to sync automatically? Is there an app for this?

Unfortunately no, if you disable the auto-sync feature, then you need to sync the apps manually.
