I changed my Google Account password, and now there's a notification about trouble logging into my Gmail account on my Samsung Galaxy S. That's fine, I'd expect that.

What I don't expect is a pop-up box containing a CAPTCHA, that I cannot get past. I'm sure I got at least one of them right (despite the auto-caps for start of words tripping me up a few times). It just keeps popping up with another CAPTCHA.

What's going on?

Did you try from the Gmail client and the browser? – gary Oct 12 '10 at 10:17
Yeah, I did... no go. I tried it again just now, and it worked! Must have been something up server side. Thanks for the comment, tho. – cofiem Oct 14 '10 at 10:02

THis seemed to solve itself. After trying again just now, it worked. Must have been a server-side thing. Sorry I can't help anyone else that has this issue.

Try unlock the captcha: Then, go back to your android phone e retype o password.

I had the same issue with the endless Captcha. There is a solution though.

Go to on a PC or a web-browser and unlock the Captcha for your account. You will then be able to login again with username and password on your device.

Hope this helps
