  • How to fix common Google Play Store error codes

    #1. Google Play - Error rpc:aec:0]

    Problem:You can't download an app.

    Solution:

    Remove your Google account. Remove all synced accounts. Go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store and select Clear data. Restart your device and try again.

    #2. Google Play - Error RPC:S-3

    Problem

    Can't download an app.

    Solution

    Remove Google account and re-add it, or try an alternate account.

    #3.Google Play – Error authentication required

    Problem

    Strangely, this problem is quite common on Android devices. But rest assured, we have three possible solutions to deal with it. One of these tips should resolve your problem.

    Solutions

    1. Enter the Accounts tab in the settings of your phone. Then remove the Google account and add it again. If everything works after this then it was a simple little error that's sometimes displayed after an update.

    2. Go into your Settings, tap Application manager then go into the Google Play Store. Delete the data from this menu (you can also clear the cache).

    3. Maybe the problem is not really in your authentication, but the Play Store itself. In this case, you only have to go to application settings (Settings> Applications), search the Play Store and click Uninstall updates. Maybe you need to disable the Play Store to get to this started. That way you get the version of the Play Store that you had when you purchased the phone, you just have to update it and then re-register.

    #4.Google Play - Package File Invalid

    Problem:Play Store error.

    First solution

    Go to Settings > Apps > All and select the app that's causing the problem, then select Clear cache and Clear data. Try again in Google Play Store.

    Second solution

    • Install app through Google Play Store website.

    Third solution

    • Disable Wi-Fi and download or update the app using mobile network data.

    Fourth solution

    • Go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store and select Clear cache and Clear data. Do the same for Google Services Framework.

    FIfth solution

    • Remove your Google account, restart your device, re-add your Google account and try again.

    #5. Google Play – Error 8

    Problem

    • This error occurs when you want to download an application and the download stops.

    Solution

    Make sure you have Google Play Services installed. If the problem persists, go to the application list and enter Google Play Services and disable the application. It will then ask if you want to restore the factory settings, you will just have to confirm. If this does not solve the problem, you should contact Google support.

    #6.Google Play – Error 20

    Problem

    • This problem occurs when installing or updating an Android app.

    Solution

    • To resolve this error, you must be rooted since you need to access a file named 'smd2tmp1' found in / mnt / secure / asec /. If your mobile is rooted, you can delete this folder this should permanently resolve the problem.
    • If you don't want to root your device, there is another solution. Delete the file / data / data of the application that caused you problems. Use file explorer to access the folder. For this, I suggest you check out our best file managers for Android article.

    Google Play - Error -24

    Problem

    Unknown.

    Solution

    You need a root manager to solve this one. If you have one, navigate to Data/data. In that folder, locate the package name of the app causing trouble (this can be found by looking at the URL of the app on the Play Store website). Delete the entire folder. Try reinstalling the app.

    Google Play - Error 101

    Problem

    Can't download app as there are too many currently installed.

    Solution

    Uninstall old and unused apps.

    Google Play - Error 110

    Problem

    The application cannot be installed.

    Solution

    Head to Settings > Applications > All > Google Play Store > Clear cache. If the problem persists, try downloading the app from the Play Store website.

    Google Play - Error 194

    Problem

    This error happens when you try to download games or apps from the Google Play Store.

    Solution

    One fix for this issue is to clear the cache data for Google Play Services and the Google Play Store. 

    1. Go to Settings > Apps or Application Manager
    2. Scroll across to All and then down to the Google Play Store app.
    3. Open the app details and tap the Force stop button.
    4. Next tap on the Clear data button.

    Now repeat the process above but replace Google Play Store with Google Play Services at step two and then attempt your download again.  

    If that doesn't work, don't worry, the issue has now been resolved and a fix is being rolled out in the next version of the Play Store app. Just make you have the latest Google Play Store APK and you shouldn't experience this error again.

    Google Play Error - 403

    Problem

    The download is impossible and the request is 'forbidden'. This usually happens when two Google accounts are used to buy applications on one device.

    Firs solution

    Go the Google Play Store with the correct Google account. Uninstall the application in question. Try to get the app from Google Play again and click the purchase button.

    Second solution

    Clear the proxy you have possibly set up, by going into the Settings, then choose Wireless and Networks (or More networks) and then Mobile Network. Select APN, which stands for Access Point Name and hit Clear Proxy Option. You can always reinstate the proxy afterwards.

    Third solution

    Another solution would be to erase your entire search history which you can do in the Play Store itself by choosing the Settings button. Next, select Clear search history.

    Fourth solution

    Try creating a new Google account and using it instead for the Play Store. Go to the Google Play, and select the menu button again. Then select Accounts and choose the New Gmail account. Then reinstall the app.

    Solution

    A classic clearing of the cache will hopefully do the trick. Go to Settings > Applications > All > Google Play Store > Clear cache.

    Otherwise, try again on a different network connection.

    Google Play - Error 413

    Problem

    Downloading applications or updates is impossible. If you use a proxy, remember that it may cause problems with the operation of the Google Play Store.

    Solution

    Under Settings, find Apps, then swipe to All and scroll down to Google Services. Here, select Clear data and then Force stop. Do the same on the Google Play Store app.

    Note: If the problem is not solved, try deleting the Dalvik cache. To do this, enter the custom recovery mode (only if you have root). Another solution is to complete a data wipe/factory reset. This option applies to all users and can be done in recovery mode. Beware, it will wipe your data so make sure you have backed up everything you wish to keep.

    Google Play - Error 495

    Problem

    Solution

    Delete your Google Play Store data in Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store > Clear data. Delete data from Google Services Framework as well (note: this will assign a new Google ID to your device, as if you had factory reset it, meaning your Google apps may temporarily act up afterward).

    Delete your Google account on the device, reboot your phone and re-add your Google account in Settings > Accounts > Add Account > Google Account.

    Google Play Store - Error 497

    Problem

    Second solution

    Disable your SD card, if you have one. Go to Settings > Storage > Unmount SD card.

To do so, open up Root Explorer, or a similar application, and navigate to System / app > Mount R / W > Delete application. Or you can play it safe and rename the offending APK to to something like GoogleSearch.apk.backup, so you can revert it if anything goes wrong.

    Google Play - Error 498

    Problem

    Interruption of downloads from the Google Play Store.

    The problem is that the cache of your device is full. Delete unneeded applications and files. Restart your smartphone in recovery mode by pressing the volume down, power and home buttons (for Samsung devices), or volume down and power (for most other devices).

    This mode provides a few more options. Select Wipe cache partition by navigating between options with the volume rocker. Confirm using the power button.

    Problem

The tool should present a window alerting you to which app is producing the conflict. This is the app you need to uninstall.
