Just want to share this in case anyone else encounters this issue.

I suddenly got this problem that google play refused to connect, only showing the retry option, at the same time all other apps worked with internet.

I tried to update the app from 3.10.14  to 4.0.27, but this didnt help.

I did search for a solution, one common solution was to go to settings and clear the google play cache. This didnt work for me.

The problem in my case turned out to be the date setting had changed, so it was one week off. Setting the correct date and time fixed it, and google play worked fine again.

Brilliant!!  I have a Samsung Galaxy Proclaim and was having the exact same problem.  Never thought to change the date/time but as soon as I did (Settings, Date & Time) it worked beautifully.  It also solved the issue I was having with repeated Security warnings regarding non-trusted certificates.  You're the hero/ine of my day!

Hah, I guess our issues with the Open Pandora's version of Android apply to other devices as well.
