    I've actually never had to delete market data I just delete service framework data and it works for me... try that first and see if it fixes your problem

    When I go to google services framework I get the same message. Will that mess anything up?

    Awesome, thank you. We had been having that problem ever since we got the tablet and since google talk authentication failed it wasn't allowing us to download from the android market. :D

    I have gotten the new LG android and I have gone through this feed and attempted every option given however, I still have the "google talk authentication failed" notice. Can someone advise me on what to do next? This was supposed to be a brand new phone and I do not like this already. Can I just delete the Google Talk somehow?

    make sure your entering the right password

    wipe data for everything google related

    wipe cache wipe dalvik if you know how

    reboot and you should be good...make sure you dont have tha double password deal setup with google..the info in the op should do the trick

    reinstall your rom...that would be what i would do next..make a backup..save apps with titanium and reinstall whatever rom your using after you do a full wipe

    I literally purchased this phone two days ago, hours after purchasing it started doing this. It should be the point of the matter that a brand new phone should not be doing any of these errors, I haven't even downloaded any apps..I should not have to completely wipe my phone and fix something that shouldn't have been broken in the first place. :S thanks for your help guys but looks like I will take this back after the easter break and demand a new one!

    i can completely understand your frustration bro...but i seriously doubt its something wrong with the actual phone..something isnt jiving with your google account..there are many types of google errors and codes that sometimes happen out of the blue..thats why i dont understand how if your wiping the data for everything google related, thats not fixing the issue..thats always takes care of that auth.error that you have..but if you were rooted and have cwm which i dont remeber reading in your op, you could just reinstall a rom..or atleast try factory resetting your phone from options..there are other things you could try besides taking it back lol..thats just my two cents bro, dont mind me

    I have a samsung galaxy s2 and recently the motherboard was replaced. The Android version was updated to 2.3.6. I got errors like "google account authentication failed' & "google talk authentication error". Whenever I tried to download any app it said " could not download because of an error" . Also market did not change to google play. I tried restarting the phone many times. Ultimately I did a factory reset. It worked!!!! Now I can download apps and though it still says market on the phone, it accesses the google play.

    There is another way to accomplish the same thing without having to factory reset, you can remove your current google account by using root explorer and going to /data/system and rename accounts.db to accounts.db.bak, simply reboot the phone after doing this and add your google account again upon opening up the market app. This always seems to fix it for me if the above clearing of cache fails.

    Worked for me:

    Cleared google services framework
    Cleared market (play)

    This worked perfectly... I cleared data on everything google related... Rebooted and worked fine... it auto force closes everything when you clear data... At least it did mine... Hope this helps any having problems with this...

    1. Press the ALL icon at the top of that page
    2. Scroll down (by pushing the screen up - alphabetical order) and
    3. Press Google Services Framework
    4. Press Force Stop and then Clear data
    5. Scroll down and click Market
    6. Press Clear Cache in the middle of the page
    7. Reboot the phone and you should be able to download again

    This is what worked for me, clearing the data and rebooting. Thanks Dave, and Heya for posting.

    Hi all
    Sorry to make my first post here a "help me!" post... :)
    I have a Huawei X3, have had it since Jan 2012 and it works fine, apart from a damaged screen.

    I purchased a new one yesterday and I can't make it accept my Google account - I have my own domain with Google Apps, and I get the "your domain does not have Google Talk enabled" message.

    Which would be fine, except that I know that it's currently working on my old phone... o.0

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I know it's theoretically possible to use the same Google account across multiple devices (smartphone+tablet for example)

    Thanks in advance

    Fantastic! Thank you so much for this thread! I was so sick of hearing my phone remind me in the middle of the night with audible notifications of
    "Google talk failed to login. if this is a google apps account, confirm that chat service is enabled for this account." Was afraid I would have to hard boot the phone and download everything again! Once again......THANK YOU!!!

    Thank you very much Davegrow.
    After official Samsung Kies update to GB, my mobile was working fine. I played with some system fonts and my mobile has gone into rebooting loop. I rooted, my phone and used Link2SD to increase my Internal memory. I revived my phone successfully, but I always got this "Gtalk authentication failed" error and couldn't download any apps from Market. I was thinking to downgrade my mobile to Froyo. Great thanks to you Davegrow. You saved me much mental agony.
    Thank you very much.

    I am loving my Galaxy FIt, its a great phone.:D
