I am accessing an Android market and trying to download Free applications, when i have tried to download any application by clicking on "Install" button.

When i click on "Download" button, it always shows the downloading application with the message : "Starting Download", i am seeing this message since last 2 hours, but application is not getting donwload to my phone.

Whats the problem ?

@Bryan Denny that answer was regarding Cancel the download, whereas i want to donwload the applications but remain unsuccessful in downloading applications – Paresh Mayani Oct 4 '10 at 15:50
That's the catch. You have to cancel the download then try to run the update again. See if that resolves your problem. – Bryan Denny Oct 4 '10 at 19:11
@Bryan Denny ya i had done the same, cancel the download and try to re-download(update) , but remain unsuccessful on HTC Hero – Paresh Mayani Nov 11 '10 at 6:00

Ok, then you could try signing out of GoogleTalk and back in again. – keyboardsurfer Oct 4 '10 at 16:26
@Keyboardsurfer ya i already hard-restarted the phone twice – Paresh Mayani Oct 5 '10 at 4:53
Then there might be an issue with your accout and you should consider asking Google-Support for help. – keyboardsurfer Oct 5 '10 at 11:34
Did you successfully cancel the download, had it disappear from the "starting download" list, and start it all over again? – kkaploon Oct 14 '10 at 14:56
