    Hi guys, I noticed that my CNN, wpcentral, and Microsoft weather live tiles suddenly stopped updating. Anyone experience this?

    My Weather Channel live tile stopped updating yesterday, no idea why. It is still 'enabled' as a background task.

    Are all of your live tiles no longer updating or just the ones you listed?

    those are the only ones that I have, I'm guessing no live tiles work... I try restarting the phone, doing a reset by holding down vol down and power, and uninstalling/installing all the apps...

    Have you tried killing the tile and setting it backup? You aren't in battery save mode or no data mode or anything, right?

    All of mine are updating normally. Make sure you're not in battery saver mode.

    Remove tile. Replace tile.

    In addition to various live tiles not updating, if I try to run the CNN app it goes into the app, shows "Loading......" for several seconds and then goes back out to the main screen.

    This is a known bug. Unless you allow CNN app to run in the background (settings -> applications -> background tasks) it will constantly crash on start up. Sucks!

    Weather Channel doesn't update properly for me either, it only updates if I resize the tile or open the app. I don't have the background task blocked, either.

    I have opened a support ticket with the developer, I would encourage you to do the same so they can help take a look at the issue.

    My live tiles have been going thru this for the last few days as well. Some work, some don't, then none work, etc. I've tried all the known fixes (clearing IE cache, re-pinning tile, disabling/re-enabling the background tasks) with no steady success. To be honest, I thought I was done with this silliness.

    In my experience (Italian Lumia 920) you gotta open each app and enable the live tile by selecting the linked setting.
    Often in setting, in addiction to live tile enablement, you can find the option to display the original colors instead of the colors you choosed for your display theme.

    Hope it'll help you!

    As far as I'm concerned, "Live Tile" for 3rd-party apps means when you tap it, it comes alive. I've tried all the suggested remedies, and none work. They display the data from the last time you tapped it until you tap it again. Sigh.

    Hello all,

    Did anybody figure out what is causing this or how to fix it? My WPcentral live tile stopped updating this morning along with my weave news reader live tile.

    See if this helps. I posted my experience a couple of days back http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...ight-help.html
    In summary: Try a soft refresh, followed by a normal reboot and then wait a couple of hours to see if live tiles start updating
