Hi - seems to be a load of dicussion around similar topics here but i thought id ask if someone could help. Ive bought a tablet S second hand which the previous owner says (and i have no cause to doubt him as there were some downloaded apps on there) was working fine - in the interest of wiping the tablet i performed a factory reset and commenced setup from scratch.
First thing that seems strange after doing some research is that on the setup when you get to the page that states set up google account to use google services (or words to that effect) there are no options i cannot proceed unless i check the box set up accounts later - once i d this things proceed as normal. Then going to home settings accounts and sync there is no option in there for a google account all i have is corporate, email and sony entertainment network (ive synced corporate using my gmail account but this doesnt give you an option to add payment details for apps).
Next, going to apps and widgets there is no google play, just market and when you try to load this you get a blank white screen which momentarily says loading and then goes straight back to the apps and widgets page. I get the same thing with the Gmail app, Videos, Talk, Ustream.
Ive tried clearing cache on these apps, and done several factory resets and keep getting the same scenario. I cant load any apps (as i cant access the store) and as this is my first android machine i cant buy via my pc and transfer apps as i get google play (on the web) telling me ive not associated any devices with my account and i need to use the google play app on my device in the first instance - catch 22!
Sorry for the length of this (especially as my first post) but ive been tearing my hair out - any help gratefully appreciated. Im attaching a video (sorry its upside down) showing what it does when you try and load the apps.
Im running ICS 4.0.3 (release 1a) Kernel Version 220.127.116.11
