Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

It sounds to me like you may just be stuck logged into your new account.

Please do the following:

Go to On the top right you should see the name of the account you are currently signed into.

Click on the name and a box will open, in that box click Sign Out.

At this point you will be returned to a log in screen. On this screen enter your old gmail account address and password XXXXX you should be returned to that account.

If you need further help please do not hesitate to reply back and let me know.

Thank You
