    A simple list, but there are probably an unlimited number of reasons:
    1. You have a subclass that over-wrote the default re-paint method and no painting is done in this method
    2. There is no reason to repaint
    3. You over-wrote the update method to not call repaint

    Well yea, I was asking because I had a problem before (Now fixed)

    The "repaint" wasnt doing anything, (I was like what the hell)

    I ended up just doing paint(getGrahics()); and it worked,

    Wrong approach. Never use getGraphics of a component in client code. This approach cannot and will not work consistently.

    To get better help sooner, post a SSCCE *
