Google Play Services has stopped

“Google Play Services has stopped” error message started to pop up on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.  Shortly after, my tablet experienced a slew of weird behavior.  The most concerning, constant reboots.  So I decided on a factory reset.  If you do not know how to reset your tablet to factory settings click here.

After the reset I continued to get the – “Google Play Services has stopped” error message.  I decided to reinstall the package manually.

I will keep this short and sweet.

  1. Enable third party software installs
  2. Download Google Play Services and Google Play Store for your device on a computer
  3. Transfer the files to your device via usb
  4. Using a file browser go to the directory where you placed the files.
  5. Tap first on the google play services and then the google play store to install the software
