    For some reason my syncing on my Google account just turned off, and I can't figure out how to turn it back on. Stock Android 4.1.1 Gnex. Looked for answers everywhere but can't find it...

    Sorry mods...finally found it. Took me forever to find it through a web search. Instead of being under the account it's under Data Usage>Menu>Auto-Sync Data

    I have no idea how that got turned off.

    Default Re: Google Sync Turned Off?

    My Samsung SPH-M580 running Android 2.3.6 only sync's sometimes.
    Manually initiating sync does nothing.

    Both Yahoo and Google accounts do not sync.
    Application sync--> google set to autosync

    Sometimes it works others not.

    Help!

    Remember that you can also select which Google services you want to sync by going into the Google account linked to your device and checking/unchecking the boxes you don't want sync'd.

    Selecting services to auto-sync via Accounts is only an option if you have Data Usage > Menu > Auto-sync Data checked.

    For some reason or another this can become unchecked and auto-syncing isn't possible until checking it again.

    From your homescreen > Menu Button > Settings (System Settings) > Data Usage (Under Wireless & Networks) > Menu Button > Auto-sync data. Make sure it's ticked.

    Then from your homescreen > Menu Button > Settings (System Settings) > Google (Under Accounts) > Tap your account at the top. You should see the list of things that are autosyncing. Make sure Calendar is ticked.

    Thanks. I had no idea why my calendar stopped syncing. It seems a weird place for that to be. I was out of the country and turned off mobile data. When I got back and turned on mobile data it must not have checked the sync box. I never would have found it if not for your post.
