Thanks, but the same fix has already been posted on some of the numerous THREADS on the subject.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Select Applications.
  3. Select Manage Applications.
  4. Select Market.
  5. Select Clear cache.
  6. Press the back button (takes you back to list of installed applications)
  7. Select Download Manager.
  8. Select Clear data.
  9. You should now be able to download successfully from the Market.

I had this problem, too. But this fix didn't work, until I also uninstalled all market updates, as suggested in another thread:

settings -> applications -> manage applications -> market -> uninstall updates

I get this market problem all the time, and after trying EVERYTHING, nothing works, and I just have to wait a few hours. According to other people, it is a well known problem, and google have still done nothing about it

I've been having this DOWNLOAD UNSUCCESSFUL problem for days and I just resolved it (at least for now). I had tried all the clearing cache suggestions and nothing made any difference. I found the app I wanted on a different download site than android market and was able to download it from there. Then I went back to the market and tried the download of the same app and IT WORKED! So, maybe folks having this problem could try that??

I have not recieved errors displayed, however some of my downloads just disappear after 3 seconds or so and then nothing happens. If I check the same app in the market, it then says "cancel install". I can cancel it, then try to reinstall it and the same thing happens. It starts to install then disappears.

I have an X10 with Eminence on it, I can access the market and view it all fine but when it comes to downloading it just stays on 'Starting Download' and nothing happens, had it for a few days now and it's really grinding my gears. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I've searched forums and google for this problem but to no avail :/

You have all probably resolved this in one way or another since it has been months since the last post. If there is another user this has happened to, I posted my work-around in a similar thread here at androidforums: Market Download Unsuccessful

Default What about alternative approaches?

Since none of the suggestions in the other threads worked, I wonder whether one could sideload all the updates. (In my case, I can't even get the APKs to download so that I can install them manually--every time I try, I get an error message about the file's integrity.) I've tried commercial installers--they just don't work. Or what about a conflict--maybe between market and amazon, or market and appbrain?? Or just a conflict with another app? On the Pocket PC, it often happened that when you installed one app, another stopped working. I remember once it took about a week to track down the conflict, which was that I had changed the way the date and time looked in the task bar. (Who woulda thunk?)

Related question; if I delete all the data from the download manager, doesn't that give Market amnesia?

Did you allow installations from Unknown Sources? In the same section as turning on Debugging.

Usually just clearing the cache will clear any errors or things stuck in queue.

I have never had a problem with the Market, except after a custom ROM install. After I connected to wireless network, and disconnected and restarted the phone, everything worked fine.

I wish. The only thing I haven't tried is deleting market data because I don't know what the repercussions might be. I'm not happy to just sit and wait for the market to correct the problem because it's been going on for a week. I'm about to try the opera browser technique. who knows? It may work.

And if you are in a country that isn't in North America or isn't in the UK then it is possible the market is down in your country.

The market is unique to every country google has an office in. Hopefully it isn't some local problem.

Easiest I think would be to backup and reflash the phone.

If you could get the AppBrain apk installed on the phone....maybe that would help.

Do any updates on the phone. I know there was an update from Sony that changed the Market a while ago. So the Market has the Sony Xperia logo or something....I donno....my phone is rooted and doesn't have the standard Xperia OS.

I lot easier than troubleshooting would be to take the time....do a backup and reinstall/flash.

Default more questions...

You know, I suspect you're right. But I can't get appbrain to update either. And can't find Appbrain's Web Installer anymore (thank you, Google). And I hate the idea of going through all that hassle. I got this Streak 5 (from Dell) rooted and unlocked after I bricked a previous Streak trying to upgrade its ROM from 1.6 to 2.2. This came with Froyo out of the box. So I'm going to try to find the problem, even though it is probably a losing battle.

More questions:L why can't I download without installing from the Market, Amazon's appstore, AppBrain, or a bunch of smaller sites? And could having both the Market and Amazon's appstore on the Streak at the same time have caused the problem? And where do programs that are downloaded (and then installed) downloaded to?

Default partial solution

I know I'm talking only to myself here, but, just in case some future archaeologist happens upon this post, I though I'd report my meager progress.

I found a sparse few, painfully few, Web site that would let me download, in this case, Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons. So, then, I winrar-ed them (probably unnecessary) and transferred them by USB to my SD card. Then, I unrar-ed them, clicked on each apk and "viola, viola, girl, girl" (very old joke), each installed.

The problem is that there aren't many programs one can find that actually just download instead of download and then automatically install. And, you can't do this with paid apps. (I haven't visited warez or other pirate sites for decades, and don't intend to start now.)

Default Oh, more and more...

I've learned something useful, I think, but I don't know what it means. Used my oh-so-clever technique and then clicked on one of the APKs on my SD card and, um, got the same unsuccessful install. So it is not the market. It's something on my Streak. But what? And how come I can install freshly purchased apps, but not updates?

Default Another workaround

OK. This is my last communication on this subject. I've found that if I un-app-to-SD programs just before I try to update them, they do indeed upgrade and then I can move them back to the SD card. Tedious, but at least it works. I haven't figured out what to do about apps that always live on the phone (rather than SD card), but I will.

Hope this helps someone.

Default download error msg: Download unsuccessfull please try again.

Yesterday I went and purchased 2 brand new HTC Inspire phones ( I realize that these are not Sony X10 phones however I figured my discovery may help anyone who is having this issue.) Anyways my phone was and is still working perfectly whilst my gf's phone was getting said error msg. So I did what any rational person would do and started researching the error. After about 8 hours of failed attempts and frustration I logged into the Android market using the web not the app. Here I discovered after logging in using her gmail account that the market for some reason was trying to send the info to her old droid 2 phone. I saw an option to switch the phone after clicking the installed button next to the app selected and it did at this time download the app using the internet browser on her phone instead of the market app. After several more attempts with the market app not at all successful i tried doing a master reset and switching the gmail account to a brand new one since doing this we have not had ant problems but have posted to google about how they may b able to fix this issue. So essentially try switching your gmail account to a new one. Unless Google actually fixes the phone issue with the market this will continue to plague Android users. Hope this helps!

ok, i have a problem with my market... i cant find some apps which is getting pretty annoying... i know these apps exist because they are available on the online android market... i think this is because i recently had the 'starting download' problem so i cleared the cache n uninstalled market updates, so now i have the old version of the market... is there a solution for this, how to i get the newer market version? or can i just delete the one i have n install a new market apk?

You sure the apps you are looking for are still available for your version of android?

I would suggest checking the apps on AppBrain. Or give me a few examples.

You could try and download a new Market....or find the APK and install apps manually.

I just installed Ripple Lock Free and it was instant.

Last week I had a problem with just Winamp. For 2-3 days I tried to install it and it just wouldn't download. I chalk it up to winamp's redirect from the Market was probably down.

Everything else on my phone would update..I even downloaded another new app with no problem, but Winamp, one of the most popular music apps wouldn't download. Then I tried again on the 4th or fifth day and it installed within seconds.

Maybe it was ripple lock's site or file hosting.

Hope it works now...in the Market or AppBrain.

I found the answer to this problem after returning a tablet and buying another with the same problem. I changed my router firewall setting from "Typical" to "Minimum'. Works great now.

Red face lots of xooms

Ok, I'm getting the same issue and I'm sure it's because I'm loading the same software using the same Google account on several Xooms for classroom use. Not knowing a better method for installing the same educational apps on 84 Xooms, I started by creating a Google account that I add to a couple at a time and go through and install the apps via the Market. It had been working fine for about the first 20 but now I get "Error downloading xxxx. Xxxxx could not be downloaded." every time I try to download (through the Market) on any Xoom, including my finished ones. I know I have my google account locked up somehow, but I don't know how to fix it. Any ideas, or should I just create another Google account and push on from there?

First. This the forum section for Sony Xperia x10s. I don't know what a XOOM is.

If I were you I would try installing other apps from the Market. Sometimes some apps don't work. Even apps that have been downloaded millions of times, like Handcent. It had a dead link on the market for 2 days.


If I were you I would find the apps APK I wanted to install and then copy the xxxx.APK onto the phone. Then with a File Manager/navigator. I would open the xxxx.APK and run and install it. Not using the market at all.

If I had to use the market. I would create a real email account for each phone. Number each phone and create an account for each. But that sounds way too long. The APK way would be the quickest.

Reboot if you haven't tried. Try from a different network (WIFI or over 3G)

If I were you I would find the apps APK I wanted to install and then copy the xxxx.APK onto the phone. Then with a File Manager/navigator. I would open the xxxx.APK and run and install it. Not using the market at all.

If I had to use the market. I would create a real email account for each phone. Number each phone and create an account for each. But that sounds way too long. The APK way would be the quickest.

Reboot if you haven't tried. Try from a different network (WIFI or over 3G)
You're missing the very important fact that he's having this problem across multiple devices and if you've seen any of the multitude of threads about this issue on the internet you'd know that people haven't awakened yet to the significance of that fact, given how most suggested "fixes" deal with the individual device and think locally. This is not a local issue, and in my case it doesn't matter which app you're attempting to download or update. My tablet AND my phone (different carriers, same google account) are both unable to download or update via the market. They both started having this problem at the same time so obviously clearing the cache on one or the other, or any such similar nonsense, isn't going to do anything.

First, it wasn't you asking the question.

And second, if you have the APK, you don't need to access the market at all.

I tried to fix my phone by clearing the cache in market and then clearing data in the download manger, the result is a completely bricked phone. I can't get anything out of it now, won't start no matter what combo of uttons, battery load and aunload. no matter what I do the phone won't show a pulse at all. I don't know if I can get a new phone or not but I have got to give it a try.

does anyone have some magic thing to do that might get this phone to even blink?

Download PC Companion or Sony Update Service then run them and repair the phone.
