Tread Travels:

If Mabel had not been able to see your photos or anyone else's she would have told you.
I can see all your photos, and have no problem seeing my own or anyone else's.

It seems that there are only two of you having this problem.
If everyone were having the same problem the Help Forum would be neck-deep in posts and threads about this.

So, the problem seems to be at your end (and the OP's).

Have you tried anything yourself to fix this?
If so, what?

Have you rebooted your computer or whatever device you are using?
Have you rebooted your router, if you are using one?
Have you tried (temporarily) disabling any adblocker or browser add-ons?
Have you tried anything at all?

My money is on an ad-blocker.
That's the commonest reason for this kind of problem on Flickr.
Even if that's not it, though, you are going to need to provide considerably more information than "I can't see any photos!" if you want anybody to stand even the slightest chance of helping you.

Nionyn_:

Thank you for the ideas and patronage.
- I disabled ad-blocker
- refreshed
- rebooted-cleared cookies
- rebooted router
- own multiple laptops and each have no access to images
- Googled if FLICKR was down
- Googled the issue and did a hard refresh Ctrl & F5
- inspected page elements
- sent page links to my email to see if link allows viewing

And clearly not the only person that remains with white blanket of no images appearing any-where on FLICKR. Best regards.

Perhaps it's the new garbage notification set-up

As noted by Nionyn I would have written "me too" or some such text if I had been in the "same boat" as OP. I added the links for OP to try, because sometimes navigating from a different location/link might make a difference.

I recommend using this link, already supplied by Viejito:

katie_ko says:

Harry Lean, Pao Navarrete Photos, Tread Travels:

Sorry to hear you're running into trouble here!

Although we're not currently experiencing widespread reports of photos not loading, we understand that there are many factors within your particular setup that can contribute to this frustrating experience.

As Nionyn_ mentioned, ad-blockers are a common cause of this symptom. Temporarily disabling them can help narrow down if this is the root cause!

Additionally, in the past we've found there is often some other security protection within the network or device that is preventing Flickr from being able to load correctly.

If your network security is blocking the staticflickr.com server, this would cause the main site and many site components to load, but not the photos themselves.

Please double check if you have any network security set up & ensure it will allow all items from both flickr.com and combo.staticflickr.com to load. (Both of these domains are needed to load the site properly.)

If you do so & continue to run into issues, please contact staff directly & we'll be happy to continue troubleshooting!

Viejito says:

Tread Travels:

Not very safe. Safer to just allow acces to flickr.com and staticflickr.com in whatever firewall or other security software you may have, and in your browser.

You could also try allowing third-party cookies.

Try one of these at a time, until one of them works.

I responded here in reply as I do not wish to fill out a request form.

If, as you have said, you want help from staff then you are going to have to do what staff have asked you to do, and fill in the form.
Otherwise you are posting on what is primarily a user-to-user forum here. When staff do happen to pop in to a thread they always ask people to contact them directly, using the form.

Pao Navarrete Photos:

the problem seems to be the same on my phone

More info needed if you want anyone to be able to help you, either staff or fellow members.
Is your phone connected to your home wi-fi?
If so, is this the same as your computer(s) on which you are also having the same problem?
On your phone, are you using a Flickr app or accessing Flickr via a web-browser?
Have you tried your phone connected via 4G or 5G (i.e. not via wi-fi)?
Have you tried all (and I do mean all) of the suggestions already made in this thread?

The more pertinent info you can give, the more likely it is that someone might be able to help you.
And as far as this is concerned, the same applies to fellow members and to staff.

Oooh! Well spotted, John!

To the posters having this problem in the Philippines: do you all perhaps use the same ISP?

As already mentioned, the more information given, the better the likelihood of a solution.

Tread Travels:

I'm on Globe Fiber too!

Is your phone connected to your home wi-fi? - yes and so are other phones

If so, is this the same as your computer(s) on which you are also having the same problem? - yes

On your phone, are you using a Flickr app or accessing Flickr via a web-browser? - phone, app, wifi, no photos. phone, chrome, wifi, no photos.

Have you tried your phone connected via 4G or 5G (i.e. not via wi-fi)? - yes. i disconnected my phone from wifi, connected to data, was finally able to see photos on app and chrome(slower loading on chrome though.) NOTE: my isp at home and my sim/data are both globe telecoms.

Have you tried all (and I do mean all) of the suggestions already made in this thread? - yes.

i switched back from data to wifi and app/chrome won't show any photos again. i am able to see some but they're the 'residue' of when I was in data. if i click on the shown photos, i either see nothing afterwards or just the thumbnail itself(not the bigger photo.)

I keep seeing more replies from you here, and I keep thinking back to your refusal to work with staff directly as they have requested. If you refuse to help them help you, it's hard to imagine you obtaining any progress on your problem.

Thanks for the additional details & reports.

The issue does seem to be location specific (John was on the right track!) & our engineers are currently digging deeper into the underlying cause here.

In the meantime, using a VPN may act as a temporary workaround.

Thanks for your patience & we'll continue to provide updates in this thread as they arise!

Meanwhile I have gathered from fellow members who are troubled by the same "no picture" issue, that you guys simply get blank pages, no error messages, no black placeholders, just blank pages.

I assume you have taken heed of the two Flickr staff posts in this thread?

Coincidentally, Is a "lady from Flickr group" a staff member whith whom you had email contact?

I added a VPN for Chrome and it is a mess. So slow and continuous full page pop-up that wants me to check list 30 odd questions on cookies to allow and other junk..and it's not even in English and Google cannot translate so I deleted the VPN. Tried others but some want you to download, trial to pay accounts,and just do not seem to find a VPN I am happy with. Still no images appear with-out a VPN. Just to update. Thank you FLICKR Staff.........hope yah solve this one out.

raininren says:

I'm having the same problem.
I can't see any photos on flickr using the following:
- app on my iPAD pro
- browser on iPAD
- browser on android phone
- browsers on PC
- browser on Macbook pro

I can however see them on:
- Flickr android app
- corporate laptop browser

I've deleted and reinstalled the app. Restarted my devices, cleared the cache. Didn't solve anything.

The only difference between the ones I can view and can't view on is that I regularly access Flickr on my android app and my corporate laptop for the past years since I've had those devices. (I don't know if this has anything to do with any of this.)

I only noticed the non loading this week because I got an ipad and then tried to check on other people's devices at home if I can access them.


I've sent an email to Flickr. Didn't get a reply.

Update:

I'm out of town and brought my iPad. Lo and behold, the app worked and Flickr now loads all photos.

The place has a different ISP.

Still it's weird since my android Flickr app and corporate laptop worked with my home ISP (Globe Fibre).

I'll find out next week when I connect again on my ISP if the iPad will still load the photos or not.

If this is indeed an ISP issue, how will this be solved? We can't just swap ISPs. :(

globe fiber and data won't show for me. i'm in las pinas. my wife in the uk has no problem seeing my portfolio. a globe technician who came here for a cable replacement tried to reconfigure the connection from my place, no luck. he said that there was a connection migration and different lines have different issues. this is the issue for you and me. some were not able to make video calls in fb messenger. i have an appointment with globe tomorrow about this and i don't plan to pay my bill in full if they can't fix this.

Pao Navarrete Photos:

Thanks for the response Pao. So it looks like an ISP problem after all. Yes, I also confirm that I also cannot access via data. Someone suggested changing the DNS settings. I will look this up and try it too.

In any case, I am also sharing the response from Flickr:

"The issue you are experiencing with images not loading has been reported to us by a small number of members.

I apologize for any trouble this is causing. Our engineers are aware of the issue and working on a resolution, and I added your name to the list of affected members.

I'll reach out to you once I have any major updates."

Please let me know if you have any luck, or received feedback from Globe.

chrome is my main/only browser so i cleaned all but the passwords. still cannot view photos on my pc.

i did a clean install of opera and firefox, still no pics.

i'd be ruling out globe/isp as the issue as on the same isp i can see pics on my phone via the app.

perhaps windows10 or this is a browser is the issue?

what os and browser are you using @francesbean?

were it not for the flicker app on my android phone, isp would have been the culprit. i cannot see photos using any browser on any os. odd that flickr for ios can't show pics but the app on android does not have problems.

sorry if i've flooded this thread. its 2am here and just had to run more troubleshooting to put an end to this matter. unfortunately the rabbit hole just got deeper. i guess i won't be going to globe anymore tomorrow/later as my fiber can show pics but only in the app on android.

As many folks here have pointed out, the issue being reported here is in fact an ISP related issue-- notably with those using Globe.

While it looks like some reporters are back in action, if you’re still having issues you’ll need to contact your service provider directly to let them know!
