    so I've been getting apps and stuff from market and then Google store with both my LG Optimus 3d and galaxy tab 10.1 for just over one year. the other day I noticed that the LG phone was no longer listed in play store under my devices. now I find I can't down load any apps but I can log on with the phone and browse apps. The Tablet is listed with all its apps.
    Anyone know what I've done wrong?

    Welcome pappj!
    Did you inadvertantly hide the device while in the play store? (from the computer)

    Hi Mike thanks for the quick response
    I went back into play store and couldn't find how to hide or un hide my phone. just a thing saying "cant see your device ?" when I click on this it just says to log on to play store with device and enter user name and password I've done all that and still not working.

    Go to the Play Store. Click on "my applications"
    Scroll down to the bottom and look for "my orders and settings"
    click on that.
    Then click on settings.
    You should see something like this:

    Where you can hide or un-hide your devices. :)
    See if it's there:)

    They generally update themselves. Did you uninstall Play Store (leaving the original Market app that was in the ROM)? Give it a day and see whether it updates.

    But Market should still be able to download apps, so there's still something odd.

    I had a similar problem.
    However, my reason was quite simple, my device is not supported because it is too old. It sucks...

    Are you getting a good signal? Perhaps connect your phone to wifi?
    Sometimes the PS has glitches. Does the PS indicate that it is installed on your device?
