Hi there and welcome Edwin

Can you please go to Settings, Applications Manager.

Navigate to the list ALL and locate Google Play Services.

Press it and press clear data.

Once done, restart the tablet and tell me if Gmail now works please.

I found play services and used the "clear cache" setting but still nothing.
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.

ok, you need to though press clear Data please

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
there is no data option the only highlighted options are disable or manage space. do I press disable?
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.

No, it means the service then is corrupted and needs to be remade.

To do this you will need to reset the device.

This is going to remove all data and return the device to new, so any photos ect you have on it you will need to backup

Emails it will download once the account is added again.

To do the reset, go to Settings, Backup and Reset.

Press on Factory Data Reset.

Complete the reset and when it is done, set up the device again and it should now function

Let me know the results please.
