Can't Access Flickr - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Flickr loading pages very slowly every single night. Daytime fine, nighttime terrible. If I didn't know any better, I'd think Yahoo has given up on maintaining the site. Please, someone responsible take Flickr off of Yahoo's hands!

Who do I believe? I have been a paid member since 2007 but I'm not so sure I will pay any more. So now I have over 20000 photos on a website I can't really use. Don't I look like a F-ing fool!

The new design makes it so slow to open anything as well. Check out online that so many people experiencing same problem. Feel cheated as I am paying member.

It won't let me log in with the new email address/account I had to create as its uncoupling from BT. I just can't log in now. As soon as I try to sign in it takes me to the BT page which doesn't recognise my newly created username (I had to create that username for Flickr to transfer my pics from BT/Yahoo to itself). No idea what to do now.

Edit: All sorted now. My fault.
