SharePoint 2013 MySite page opening blank for a single user

Sharing another live project issue that I faced with one of my customers..

A single user when trying to open SharePoint 2013 Mysite page, was getting a blank page. This was happening on some other Mysite pages also.

Also user was sometimes receiving error:

System.ArgumentException: calType
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPIntlCal.GetLocalCalendar(SPCalendarType calType)

Solution:

  • Go to My Site Settings in Central Administration
  • Edit the user profile for the user having the issue
  • The setting for ‘Set your calendar’ would be blank
  • Set this to a value like – Gregorian
  • Save the profile
  • User would be able to access the My site pages.
