    I had to reset my Gmail password, and it works on my PC and Tablet but when I try to log into Gmail on my Galaxy Ace it will not acceot the new password and will not sync, I tried deleting the data in the Gmail app but this did not help.

    What can I do to fix this?

    Go into accounts. Delete your gmail account. Create a new gmail account with the new password. That should get everything working.

    thanks for your help,

    turns out it was because I had enabled two stage authentication on my Tablet, and as it also turns out I could not access the Gmail from my PC either.

    Sorry to waste your time.

    I have the same problem. I reset my password and enabled the 2-step verification. I can access my gmail from the same phone if I go through the website, but not from the app. I can still login to my gmail from my pc.

    I've tried a force stop and clear data, in the application manager. I can't find an option to uninstall and re-install.

    I get the same password issue when I try to connect to google play store.

    Any further thoughts?
