Xperia Z3 Calender - Birthday Sync Issues

I have a Xperia Z3 Compact and use the pre-installed Calendar App from Sony. For my contacts I use my gmail account.

 

I have linked my Xperia and my MacBook with my gmail account and use it for all my contacts and my calendar. I have 4 out of my 70 contacts where I don't see the birthday in my calendar. All other contacts birthdays appear in all my different calendars: online (gmail), on my Xperia App and on my MacBook. But a few contacts appear only on my Macbook and Online (Google Calendar and Gmail Adressbook). Whatever I do, the won't appear on my xperia calendar app (the birthday appears in the adress book).

 

All settngs are the same and I found some post with workarounds, but I don't want to delete all my calendar entries for an update of my contacts.

 

My software and android version are up to date.

 

If anyone has a solution, please help. It drives my crazy!

The Google Calendar App works - but I found a solution in a different post.

 

Cleaning the cache:

 

Apps - All Apps - Calendar - Clear Cache

 

That worked. Now all Birthdays are correct!

Re: Xperia Z3 Calender - Birthday Sync Issues

I can confirm this kind of problem after upgrading to Android 5.0.2 - in the calender widget, the birthdays are not shown! Sync is correct an in the calender i can see the entries but not in the widget - is this a bug?
