Default Android Market error (authentication required)

Well I am at a dead end right now. I am not sure what to do at this point. When ever I go to access the android market on the tablet it tells me that I need to authentication require in order to access. I did delete my account and add it again. Still nothing. I tried going into gmail and fooling around in there. No go. Now my only option at the moment is to factory data reset and not what I want to do. Also this is not rooted or have any custom roms on it. Just all stock with a few apps on it. Thank you for your time

Brad

Before doing a factory reset, try clearing your data for the market app. Settings > applications > manage applications > All > market > clear data

Just curious, can you log in to the web version of the market? https://market.android.com/

And if so, can you see your Xoom under devices when you go to install something?

Of course, you can't update apps through the web-based market, but that might provide a clue as to what exactly is broken.

I have Acer iconatab. I fixed it by clearing out the proxy when I exited from pdanet tablet application. Run the application, select the clear proxy button, hit the backspace button, then select the clear proxy button again. You will actually see the proxy settings the second time, select clear,save. No need to hard reset. Good luck.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I already did a factory reset. I did not know about any proxy reset or anything of the nature. If it happens again (god hope not) then I will try your way.

I had the same issue -> It resolved after a while and turned out to be a GRPS connection error. I DIDN't even clear the market's cache.
