    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

    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.

    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.
