Ok, i have saw this many times before. Sometimes it is a corrupted update and needs to be reset. Other times a password ***** can do it. Do not use any characters like * or ) or - etc.

Go to another device, browser and go to gmail.com. Then sign into your gmail and change the password ***** this.

https://support.google.com/mail/answer/41078?hl=en

Make sure the phone has data/wifi and put in the new password. Reboot if it doesnt take it. Then reply back.

(ignore remote request. that is automated by system)

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know. Reply with any and all errors or concerns referring to your technical issue.
