I am having trouble with purchasing apps on my iPad, it is continuously giving me a message saying unable to complete purchase. What's happening and how do I fix it?

The App Store isn't allowing me to purchase apps and is coming up with a message saying "your purchase could not be completed" what's happening and how can I fix it?

Could be any number of things. What user trobleshooting have you tried? Restart (power off/on) reset, hold the sleep/wake and home buttons together until you see the Apple logo and then release. See if it works after the phone restarts. Next is a restore from a backup (make sure you made a current one), then restore as a new device, which deletes all data from your device. If it doesn't work after all that, then make an appointment at the Genius Bar at the local Apple store, it is probably a hardware issue.
I have seen something similar which is generally diagnosed as a hardware issue.

    You correct it by leaving Bridge alone until it finishes rebuilding its cache, overnight if necessary.

  • I just purchased a new Mac and I am trying to download my previously purchased songs.   I am only getting a portion of each song though.  What is happening and how do I fix it?

    I just purchased a Mac and downloaded my previously purchased songs from iTunes, however it only downloaded a portion of the song (about 1:15) and this appears to be the same on all of the songs.   What is happening and how can I fix it?

    Hello Pork Chop 2,
    Congratulations on your new Mac!  It sounds like your purchased songs are not playing completely after you downloaded them.  I recommend to following steps for an issue like this:
    Symptoms
    Occasionally, if a song purchased from the iTunes Store on a Mac or PC was not downloaded completely, the song may not play back fully. The song may abruptly stop during playback, and iTunes may start playing the next song in your library or playlist.
    Resolution
    If iTunes in the Cloud is available in your country, try the following steps to resolve the issue:
    Delete the purchased song that is exhibiting the problem from your iTunes library.
    Click on the Purchased link in the iTunes Store to view your previously purchased music.
    Download your previously purchased song from this list.

  • New project to DVD works fine, but sharing to a Blu ray fails, with a error message "video rendering error 60."  What is that and how do I fix it?

    getting an error message "video rendering error 60" when burning a new final cut pro project to Blu ray.  Burning to regular DVD works fine.  I have burned many other projects successfully to blu ray.  What is this message and how do I fix it?

    If this same timeline can be exported to other file formats and can be shared successfully to DVD, possibly it's the longer render time in the Blu Ray processing that is the problem. In the Finder in Applications, right click Final Cut Pro dot app, choose Get Info and verify that Prevent App Nap is checked. If it isn't, check it and try again.

  • My itunes music won't dowload anymore.  I used to be able to drag what was purchased from my itunes to my desktop, other devices, etc.  What's happened and how do I fix it?

    I used to have an ipod, but it died, and I thought the music died with it.  Then I discovered that I could still use the music I purchased on my new player (a walkman this time) by dragging the itunes files to my desktop, then loading them into windows mediea player (then into my sony).  Now, any of the music I didn't immediately transfer to my new listening device (or even to my desktop) is no longer available.  The message says the "codex" is not the right one, etc.  I bought this music and should be able to play it on any device I have.  I've looked online and sources seem to be indicating that I need pay extra to be able to download these now - that's totally unacceptable.  I won't be purchasing music from Itunes ever again if that is the case, and I've lost the music I've already paid for.  Hopefully someone has an answer for me!

  • Anyone else having trouble with the app store on iPad today?

    The app stor app is malfunctioning. Frozen in categories, wouldn't download updates. I shut my iPad down and tried again, synced it with my computer. Same result.

    Did you try quitting the App? Double tap the home button to get to the recent apps at the bottom. Tap and hold down on the App Store icon until it wiggles, tap the minus sign to close the app and then tap the screen above the task bar to return to the home screen
    Launch the App Store again and see if it works ok.

  • Having trouble with in app purchases after ios7 upgrade?

    I'm having trouble with in app purchases after ios7 upgrade

    I'm having the exact same problem.  Unfortunately, I can't tell you what is causing it, but I can tell you what it isn't(at least in my case).  I made an in app purchase yesterday using a MasterCard I had linked to my account with no problems.  This morning, my card from my new bank came in so I switched it over(American Express), and all of a sudden can't make IAP.  I thought maybe there was an issue with the card, so I tried it out on a .99 app, and it worked no problem.  So I got with tech support and they had me reset all of my phone settings -_-, then my network settings.  No change.  I tried restarting the phone obviously, closing the App and trying again, no luck.  They suggested I call my bank and make sure the address I had on file for the card matched what I supplied for my Apple account, and that didn't fix it either.  I tried IAP on two different apps and it was the same, could not connect to App Store error.  I'm still trying to figure it out, and I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but I hope I at least save you some trouble of trying these things.  If I find anything out I'll let you know.

    Hi there! Am I alone having troubles with kids' app Little Pets Shop? Crazy invoices with €89,99 the "Wonderful Mountain"!! Has anybody got an idea? Thanks a lot

    One of your kids made an in app purchase that you did not know about. Some apps include in app purchase and games do this quite often. The game itself is free, but you might have to purchase additional items to enhance the game or to unlock certain levels.
    You can prevent this from happening in  Settings>General>Restrictions>In App Purchases>Off.

    If you are saying that after signing into iCloud it is telling you device is not found, it could be for any number of reasons. If the battery is dead, if the SIM has been removed, or if someone else has the phone and they have restored it, it will not be shown. Also, if you located it once and then sent a remote wipe, it disables the abililty to locate the phone with Find My iPhone.

  • Having trouble with mail.app always cc'ing myself

    Having trouble with mail.app always reply all is cc'ing myself. Solution was to add another address under the account so that it recoginzes aliases as well as the primary account that you are sending from. Then it will recognize all the addresses and aliases associated with the account.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    In the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports (not "Diagnostic and Usage Messages") for crash reports related to the crashed process. The report name starts with the name of the process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents—again, the text, not a screenshot. I know the report is long. Please post all of it anyway.
    In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
    Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report—they're very long and rarely helpful.

    Mt computer has been freezing up on me lately and I think it messed up my Ipod when it quit right in the middle of downloading and got shut off.

    That's because you jailbroke your phone. You can't get help here.
