If you're a League of Legends player, you might have noticed some issues with the store recently. Some players are experiencing a blank or black screen when attempting to look at the online store.

No one wants that — so let's get into how to fix this annoying League of Legends store error.

How you fix the online store for League of Legends will depend on what kind of computer you have. Most of the time Mac OS users and Windows users have separate issues they will need to tend to, but there are a few solutions that apply to both.

One simple problem to fix is to make sure your clock on your computer is synced up to the correct time. If it isn't, your computer might have trouble connecting to the store. 

Another solution that applies to both is to try restoring your internet browser settings to default. Per Riot Games, here's how to reset Safari — note that even if Safari isn't your default browser, its settings still might be impacting the store's connectivity:

Open Safari. 
Select on Safari in your Safari menu. 
Select Reset Safari.
Confirm selection by pressing Reset.

And here's how you reset your Internet Explorer for Windows settings — again, even if IE isn't your default browser, it might be impacting your connectivity:

Open the Start Menu. 
Open Control Panel.
Open Internet Options.
Select the Advanced tab.
Click the 'Reset...' button and confirm the action.
Check the Delete personal settings checkbox. (Warning: This will reset your personal browser settings.) 
Click on the Reset button.

If these solutions don't help you, there are many other specific fixes that might. Luckily, there is a whole variety of potential solutions for both Mac and PC users on Riot's website.
