    Default Stock weather widget not updating????

    Sorry if this has been asked or answered......my stock accuweather clock/weather widget the phone came with just stopped updating the other day. It stopped at 4:20 pm and I have tried evrything to get it to update and it just wont. I am currently using Android Weather but I do not like it as much as the stock widget. I have googled some and I see where plenty of people have had the same problem but no one is listing a fix, or solution. Anyone have any ideas?

    I have the opposite problem! Android weather won't update and gives an error when I try to update manually. Accu weather works fine. I wanted a smaller widget to save real estate o my screen.

    When that happened to me I had to turn off the phone and do a battery pull. Then it worked fine for me.

    I'm going to try the the battery pull. And, here I thought leaving my BB I wouldn't be finding the old reliable battery pull as little fixes. ;D

    I got it fixed! I simply deleted my location and then added it again. I did not have to uninstall. I really hope this does not keep happening though. What a pain it would be to do a few times a week!!!

    Cool Re: Stock weather widget not updating????

    On Samsung Galaxy 3, you may want to got into the Settings for the Weather Widget and make sure that the "Auto Refresh Tab" is enabled for Every 1,3,6,12 or 24 Hour(s)!

    You have to manually add your city, then in the widget swipe DOWN to get to that city. It will then update itself without location services on. You can tell if you did it right if there isn't a GPS icon next to the city.

    You can try the following:
    If you have any task killer - just uninstall or change it's settings.
    I resolve this problem by simply disable my task killer I have DU Battery Saver - I love this programme. In the saver menu - Smart module - I have option Auto clear Apps. By disabling this option, everything was running just fine again. So now I have my current city updated and updates every time with no problems.
    Hope this helps.

    This is very disappointing.

    I know this thread isn't new, but I think it might help others researching this issue. The problem is not with the weather widget, at least on 4.3, it's the Launcher.

    There's no need to pull the battery or reboot the device, just go to Settings > More > Application Manager > All, then go to TouchWiz Home and select Force Stop. That will force TouchWiz to close, restart & refresh.

    Simple as that. Now, that being said, we SHOULD NOT have to do this. This is a Samsung bug, not Android, app, or user error. This needs to be fixed.

    Thumbs up Re: Stock weather widget not updating????

    I tried what you suggested, delete the city and put it back on again. It worked like magic! Thanks.

    How do I add a location? I can't seem to do anything with a widget except delete it.

    On Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Go Settings, Device, Easy Mode. Go into the Weather widget, at the bottom is the little circle 'refresh' icon, do the icon, then go into Settings and make sure the 'auto refresh' is set for something useful.

    Yes ! You had the answer 1 Thanks
    This happened when Samsung did updates. Our locations were deleted and the weather widget had to use gps to report our weather.

    Talking Re: Stock weather widget not updating????

    I have this problem on my Samsung galaxy recently I don't know if your problem has been solved but it was the problem of DNS on my device if you are using a router then change your routers DNS to 8.8.8.8 and in next 8.8.4.4 its google DNS and its safe and you can change it directly from your phone too just go to your selected wifi network touch it and hold and in modify network config.< show advance option< in ip setting change DHCP to static and change your DNS to above said DNS servers in there but don't change anything else
    (NOTE: this solution is for a wifi connection only )
    peace!!

    If I may proffer my observations based on my s4 mini in South Africa. I have both Google and GPS enabled. I find that google only works in large cities. In a smaller town where I live it doesn't. Also the GPS doesn't work in the house but if I go out into the garden it works fine. OK?

    Nick, if you want good weather coverage in south Africa that does provide updating widgets, give the Accuweather app a try. If it does not find your location on first setup, switch the pbone's default device language to English (us) and try again. You can then switch back to your language.
