Gamerpic not changing?!

Okay, so my gamerpicture is my avatar picture. I see the change, but even after a week or so of changing it, it still doesn't change.What I mean by this, is that none of my friends see the change. Even after months! It hasn't changed since I first made the account back in November.

 

What do I do?!

I'm confused, you can see the change, but it doesn't change? Can you clarify what you mean?

I have virtually the same problem. What the OP meant was that, after changing her gamerpic to a picture of her avatar on her xbox, her friends do not see the change on their own xbox's friends list (which the OP is on, obviously).

 

My issue is a little different in that  i took a picture of my avatar in a pose with the brown 1920's gangster-style suit on, and my gamer picture changed to one of the avatar in the same pose, but wearing the white suit. Very odd.

 

Since then, i bought and unlocked a few gamer pictures (the Bad Company smiley grenade, etc.) and changed it to one of them. The problem now is that when i took a new picture of my avatar, it overwrites the previous one (the aforementioned white suit pose) on my xbox profile, but on my friend's xbox, my picture (on his friends list) is still the white suit pose.

 

What is going on?!?

 

I should mention that this problem does not seem to be linked to the option of individually setting "public" and "private" gamer pictures - for the public and your friends to see, respectively - as i have tried to change both.

If you recover your account on your console, does that help at all?

For those users seeing a discrepancy in what avatar they see vs. what their friends see--when were these changes made? It might take some time for other users to see those changes on their end.

GreyPilgrim posted this in another thread (have to give them their due credit) and may resolve your issue, I'll also include a link to the full thread as well.

First thing is to make sure your settings are correct.

While signed in go to the 'my xbox' page on the dash and press A on your avatar.

Scroll right x2 and select change settings.

Customise.

Under Privacy...

Select profile sharing and select 'Everyone' or 'Friends only' depending on your preference.

Go down to content. (optional)

Profile viewing, 'Everyone'.

Member content, 'Everyone'.

Press B x1.

Press A on 'Save & Exit'.

Could you ask your friends if they can view it now?.

If this has not helped you could try these things in order then check to see if they have worked before proceeding with the next step.

1, Firstly clear your consoles cache.

Go to memory> highlight the HDD> press Y> select yes when asked if you wish to perform maintenance.

2, Secondly have your friends clear their consoles cache.

3, Finally delete and re add your friends.

thanks that did seem to work, I cleared my cache and had a friend clear his and that worked for him but for others it still is the same....it really isnt that big of a deal to have people see my gamerpic but seems like somting that can be solved easier by xbox, seems silly to ask all of my friends to clear there cache just to see my gamerpic....I called xbox and they said its a problem but just takes awhile to refresh on peoples profiles.. how long is awhile, I have had the problem for a week I hear people of having the problem six months and so on. thanks for the help everyone
