    Hello android tablet members!

    About A Week ago, I Was playing around With features of My tablet (an Acer Iconia A500 by the way) and then i bumped into date And Time. I changed my time zone to Moscow (Just for fun) and then changed it back. The next day, I Noticed the connection problem. I could get online,and use my browser, but I Cant get on my Gmail app, I can't use the play store (It will just say "Could Not Connect") Not only can't i use my home wifi, it doesn'T work with ANY wifi Spot.
    I'M pretty sure the time zone change had something to do with this. Is there a way to fix this problem?

    Thanks in advance Androiders!

    Welcome to the forum!

    I would go back to the Settings - Date & Time and then verify that they are set correctly, including the option to obtain time automatically.

    Welcome to the forum

    You're probably correct about the time zone change, but had you gone back in and made certain that it's stuck and that the time is correct. Try restarting your tablet to see if it straightens itself out.

    I would guess that since your tablet does not have the proper password for your account, this may be the reason you are not able to connect to the Play Store or other Google services.

    Not sure why the time zone triggered it.

    I would use a web browser or a PC to recover my Google account password (hopefully you have a 2nd email address to recover to).

    Nevermind, solved it!

    What triggered it was another app I had Used that changed my time zone. Then when I uninstalled it, and my time zone was permantely stuck to Moscow. I had to re-install the same app, so it could change my time zone back.

    Thanks anyway for the help ;)

    You still need to resolve the password issue. In case something goes wrong and you need it.
