    Android Market not working on LG Optimus after performing a factory reset

    I did a factory reset on my LG Optimus. Since then, Android Market app is not working on my phone. Whenever I try to open the app, it shows the message “Application settings are not responding”. How can I fix it?

    Navigate to settings from the application drawer and the select the option as "Applications" in that select the option as Manage applications and select All tab. There you have to scroll down to find the application as Play Store and select the option as Clear Data and Cache and try reloading the applications.
    Hope this Helps.

    Try to hard Reset the mobile, First turn off the mobile. Then Hold the Home and Volume buttons and then press and hold the power button till the device turns on... Follow the on-screen instructions... This will wipe all the data in the mobile and make it factory new.... This may solve your problem if not take it to the service center...

    Hello friend,

    You must try clearing your Play Store data/cache.
    Follow these steps:

    - Go to your menu and select 'Settings'.
    - Now go to 'Applications'.
    - 'Manage Applications'.
    - Now tap on the 'All' tab.
    - Search for 'Play Store'. Select it.
    - Now tap the 'Clear Data' button.

    This might resolve your problem. If not try flashing a stock ROM of your device.

    - Simply download the stock ROM, which you can get here.
    - After that download and install SmartFlash tool and your device drivers on your PC. You can get them here.
    - There is also a simple YouTube tutorial about flashing your Optimus device: How to Flash Stock ROM.

    If even this doesn't work out, you may consider rooting your device and flashing gapps(Google apps) file.

    - First of all find a proper procedure for rooting your device on XDA Forums.
    - Then install ClockworkMod recovery which is a secondary recovery tool for Android phones. It has more features than stock Bootmenu.
    - Now according to your Android version: Gingerbread, ICS, etc., download appropriate gapps.zip file from here.

    Now, here's how to flash the gapps file:
    - Place the downloaded your gapps.zip file on the root of your SD card.(Simply on your SD card).
    - Now Power off your device.
    - Press the power button and vol. down button to enter ClockworkMod recovery.
    - Now you can navigate using volume keys and select with power button.
    - Go to 'Recovery'.
    - Select 'Custom Recovery'.
    - Now select 'Flash zip from SD card'.
    - Navigate to your gapps.zip file. Select it.
    - After it is flashed, reboot your device.

    This might definitely solve your problem.

    Regards!
