2.While connecting USB cable to phone the screen gets on as phone starts charging.There is no problem with it.
3.Usb Cable can be used for charging as well as data transfer between phone and PC.
4 & 5.Try downloading App using 3G MOBILE DATA. If u r able to download then there is problem with ur broadband connection (Service PROVIDER-BSNL server's firewall might be blocking play store OR Firewall of Router).
SAROJ 93, 09 Jan 2015I bought canvas a1 on 7th Jan. I have the same problem that I can't download any app from play... moreError 495 is a simple one which can be solved by the following 3 methods:
1.Clear Cache and Clear Data in Google Play Store:
The problem is mostly with the Cache and stored Data so clearing the Cache or Data can mostly solve the problem for clearing the cache and Data of Google Play Store you have to follow the steps mentioned below:
Go to Settings -> Click on Application Manager or Apps -> Open “All” apps
You will be having a List of Apps on the right side from that find Google Play store App
You should click on the Clear Cache button and Clear Data button.
•Clear Cache and Data for Google Service Framework:
Follow the same steps as seen in the above tutorial and in the 3rd step instead of opening Google Play Store App you have to search for Google Service Framework and then follow the steps mentioned below
After going to the list of apps find Google Service Framework
Then in the Box on the right of Screen click on both Clear Data and Clear Cache buttonshow to solve or fix error 495 in play store
In most devices of Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorolla, Micromax etc the error 495 will be solved but if the error still appears you have to try this last drastic step which will surely fix the problem.
•Reset App Preferences:
This trick has worked according to some users and here is how you have to Reset App preferences in your Android device to fix error 495.
Go to Settings and then tap on Apps
Now you can see the list of Apps which are present in your device
Press the Menu key on your android device
This will bring a pop up box with the Reset App Preferences option which should be selected
Then you have to again tap on Reset Apps option
2.Remove Gmail Account from Play Store and Add it again:
Some times the linked Gmail account can also be the problem for error 495 to which we have to follow the steps mentioned below to solve it. This is the final solution for Error 495 in Play Store.
Open Settings -> then select Accounts which can be seen at the bottom -> Now click on Google
The click on Remove Account in the page which will be either present on the right side bottom or the Top left of the page present beside the cancel sync button.
Now go back to the Settings Page and Click on Apps and then follow the Tutorial mentioned above of Clearing Cache and Data for Google Service Frame work and Google Play Store.
Now again go back to Settings -> Accounts -> Google
Select Add Google Account -> Enter your Gmail account and Password (Select all terms and Conditions)
3.Activate Access Location in Google Settings App:
As one of our users has suggested by trying to activate Access location in google settings on your android device sometimes the Error 495 has been solved and did not appear as the location settings can alter with the play store and stop some apps from getting downloaded in countries where the app is restricted.
Settings > location access > enable access to my location > activate GPS
This should do the trick and get rid of the Error 495 and if you are still not getting rid of the error you ahve to try the next step as a last resort.
****Hard Reset your Android device:
This is the last resort and this will surely solve the error 495 problem in play store while installing apps. But in Hard Reset or also called as Factory Reset you will be loosing all your data stored on your device and your android device will be set to factory settings like new.
