Google Playstore Errors

Playstore, the app market that has grown in leaps and bounds is the Android store fully loaded with apps for different purposes and new ones keep coming in to account for Android users. Playstore currently contains over 1.43 billion applications which most are free to download and some are purchase before service i.e. paying some amount of money before able to access some apps for download.

Not all the apps on playstore install and operate correctly on your Android smartphone or tablet. While the same app might be working on some other devices, it simply won’t download and install on your device. This is a very frustrating moment and it happens often. Funny enough, this is not the only Google Play Store error that the millions of Android users out there face, but there are other PlayStore errors out there but have gathered together some of this errors and possible solutions to them.

Error 919 (Out of Storage Space)

Error 919 only displays when your device is running out of storage space. In fact, this is a warning that the device has no space to save the downloaded file and installation files. To take care of this, simply free up some more storage space by deleting old files. To check available storage just go to Settings >> Storage.

Error 491

Error 491 occurs during uploading and downloading anything is not possible. Just like with the above case of Error 495, delete your Google account and re-add it after rebooting your Android device. Post adding of your Google account, go to “Settings>Apps>All>Google Play Services>Clear data” and that’s it.

Error DF-BFA-09 (Processing a Purchase Error)

As have already said that some apps are paid for before using but you may encounter an error while making payment. So if this happens to you, don’t be afraid or worried. However, one thing you shouldn’t do is waste your time trying to repeatedly download and install the app because it won’t work. The solution here is to head to the device’s settings and then check for the apps settings. Under the “All” section, tap on Google Services Framework and then tap on “Clear data” to solve this problem.

Error 498 (Cache Error)

Error 498 is common when the cache of your Android phone is full. Those using Samsung devices can press the power + home + volume down buttons to reboot the phone in the recovery mode, while the other Android users can do the same by pressing the power and volume down buttons. This will enable them to access the phone’s cache memory and clear it.

Error 941

This is a very common error, but only in cases when files completely fail to download. When this happens to your download, head to the device’s apps settings and tap on “All”. Navigate to the Google Play Store app and while there, tap on “Clear cache” and “Clear data”. The same should also be done for the download manager and once you are done with this, go back and download your file. This time round it should be successful.

Error 495

You will come across this error on instances when your mobile device fails to download an app from the Play Store. To solve this error, first clear the cache and data of the Google Play Store by going to the device’s “Apps settings” and then select “All”. The next phase involves deleting of the Google Services Framework data in addition to your Google account. Restart the phone and then add your Google account afresh by going to Settings >> Accounts >> Add Account >> Google Account and then fill in your Google details.
