    Hello

    I have been trying to figure out how to fix a Market problem I have. When I try to go into market, it does not get very far then says "Attention - A server error has occured" It then does a "Forced Stop"

    I have been dealing with this for a couple of weeks. The first thing I tried was to uninstall the updates. I did this because I could not find where to actually uninstall then reinstall the actual Market program. Thsi did not work.

    Then I upgraded firmware to 2.2. Same problem.

    I have had my Samsung Galaxy S for almost a year and it is just now acting up.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    *WARNING* I am a technological idiot so solutions have to be specific and in terms easy to understand for said idiot.

    Hey guys,

    I had a similar problem (well somewhat) with my Galaxy S when I first got it. You can find out more from this thread: http://androidforums.com/samsung-ga...count-android-market-after-factory-reset.html

    As the solution there suggests, you can try registering your google account via the youtube application (login with your entire gmail id). Don't know if this'll help you but it's worth a try.

    Anyone still having this problem (server error) try doing a factory data reset (home > menu > settings > privacy > factory data reset > reset phone (or reset tablet))
