When I go to Google Play Store, it says it needs background data. After I've synced everything, it still doesn't work. What should I do?

Uninstall Google Play app and let the phone reinstall to its factory set. Done with SGS3. Now its working fine.

I tried a force stop and it did not repair the issue. It didn't even change the screen. I had to 'uninstall updates' and return to factory settings for this app and it works (for now).

This worked for me too. I just did the fore stop - I did not have to clear data.
Thanks. I know this is almost a year later, but it was really helpful to me.

For what it is worth, I did the same thing: Force stop, etc. This had the desired effect. It also caused a lot of software on my phone to be updated, and I had been trying to do that for some time. I was about ready to get a new phone, figuring this one was just too old. Phone is a SGS3.

Go to settings, on the connection tab, click on data usage. Scroll down to google playstore and click on it. Untick background restriction.
