Let me briefly explain why you need to do these procedures.
First Solution: Perform Soft Reset
Since, we are not sure what really caused the issue, the best thing that you can do is to perform a soft reset on your phone. Doing this will fix any system glitches and refresh the core services of your device.
To do so, just press and hold the Volume Down and Power keys together for 10 seconds or more and wait until the device reboots. After you did the procedure, open the Play Store and download an app. If the error 923 still prompts, then you can proceed to the next step.
Second Solution: Toggle your Wifi Off and back On
In this procedure, we have to verify if you have a stable internet connection. Because if there’s an interruption during the download or installation process that may be the reason that the error 923 shows on your screen. So, to eliminate that suspicion all you need to do is to turn off your Wifi Off and turn it back on. If the error still occur after you do the procedure, jump over to the next method.
Third Solution: Reset your Network Settings
Since, turning your Wifi off and back it on was unable to get rid the issue, the next thing that you need to do is to refresh your connection by resetting it. This method will disconnect your device from Home Wifi and all other wireless connections but it’s very effective in fixing problems like this. This is how to reset your Network settings:
- From the Home screen, swipe up on an empty spot to open the Apps tray.
- Tap Settings > General Management > Reset > Reset network settings.
- Tap RESET SETTINGS.
- If you have set up a PIN, enter it.
- Tap RESET SETTINGS. Once complete, a confirmation window will appear.
After this, open Play Store and try downloading an app. If the Play Store error 923 still pops up, try the next procedure.
Fourth Solution: Delete Play Store Cache and Data
Another possibility we have to look into is a chance that the error 923 is due to corrupt cache and data. By deleting these files, we are bringing the Play Store back to its default settings and newer cache and data will be created.
- Open your device’s Settings app.
- Tap Apps & notifications and then See all apps.
- Scroll down and tap Google Play Store.
- Tap Storage and then Clear Cache.
- Next, tap Clear data.
- Re-open the Play Store & try your download again.
However, if the issue continue to occur, follow the next step.
Fifth Solution: Perform Master Reset
If all procedures failed to resolve the issue the last option that you can do is to reset your Galaxy Note 9. This method will wipe out all important files and data saved in the internal storage and your phone will be brought back to its default settings. But before doing this, we suggest you to create a backup of all your files so that you can easily restore them after the reset. Also, make sure to remove your Google and Samsung accounts so that you won’t be locked out of your device after the factory reset. Follow these steps to reset your Galaxy Note 9:
- Back up data on the internal memory. If you have signed into a Samsung account on the device, you have activated Anti-theft and will need your Samsung credentials to finish the master reset.
- Turn off the device.
- Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
- When the green Android logo displays, release all keys (‘Installing system update’ will show for about 30 – 60 seconds before showing the Android system recovery menu options).
- Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe data / factory reset’.
- Press Power button to select.
- Press the Volume down key until ‘Yes — delete all user data’ is highlighted.
