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.

Unable to create slideshow as the create slide show link has dissapeared.

Sarah Boucher · 8 April 2014 - 03:02

i can't find every one of my friend's pictures due to redirecting to Stupid Sera Jon's brahms lullaby with singing angels and counting sheep in it.

Laura Abbott · 8 March 2014 - 11:10

Will not let me sign in to my account with my username and password.

Karen Kelley · 5 March 2014 - 10:42

App is stuck. I deleted the app on my iphone just now - reinstalled it and it's saying Flickr is unavailable

Elajitz Agren · 21 February 2014 - 16:06

I cant access my Flickr when i trying to login whit Facebook!.. any Clue ?

Carol Palmer · 16 February 2014 - 04:09

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.

Lauren Peeler Brice · 6 February 2014 - 17:12

Cleared cache - no luck - rebooted and Flickr is back. Also working on my cell phone.

Lauren Peeler Brice · 6 February 2014 - 16:36

I've been getting the BAD PANDA page since around 3 this afternoon while I was uploading an image. Can't get in since. Provider is Verizon. I log in directly.

Dave Gordon · 6 February 2014 - 14:39

Yep down here for a Yahoo signed in user in the UK also. Seems to be quite common of late.

Nathalie Duval · 5 February 2014 - 12:49

I had the same problem logging in Flickr with my Google account... I succeeded by using Firefox on Windows XP!!!

Iris Vanloon · 5 February 2014 - 11:53

I have the same problem since last night, can't sign into Flickr through Google with my Gmail account. Does anyone know what to do about this or how to solve this. Is this a Yahoo conflict or a Flickr Issue?

Linda Oliver · 5 February 2014 - 10:18

Also have not been able to sign into Flickr since last night. It would be nice to have some sort of information update when trying to log in.

Ericka Snyder · 5 February 2014 - 10:01

STILL not able to log in to Flickr using Google or FB. This is so frustrating.

Claudia Dricot · 5 February 2014 - 09:27

can't sign in to flickr with my google account. Error message:
Sorry, there was an error. Please sign in again with the same account or a different one.

Elphame Raynier · 5 February 2014 - 07:12

Cannot access Flickr with Google account I receive this message: "Sorry, there was an error. Please sign in again with the same account or a different one." Grrrrr

Ericka Snyder · 4 February 2014 - 19:19

Flickr will not let me log in. Keeps giving me an "error" message. UGH!!!

Kristina Krause · 4 February 2014 - 12:37

It seems that anything having to do with Yahoo in general is very slow to respond at the moment, from Flickr to Yahoo email.

Colin Haycock · 4 February 2014 - 12:24

Flickr website very slow to respond in general. Small uploads (5 pictures) timeout after 5+ minutes of waiting. Servers may be up but the service is down. I don't suppose anyone from Yahoo or Flickr is watching this so I suppose I will just have to wait until someone notices there is a problem and does something about it

Matthew Bowman · 4 February 2014 - 12:23

It would be neat for a paying customer like myself if they could give a warning, maybe via email, before I totally embarrass myself before a client.

Donna Kantaris · 4 February 2014 - 11:45

flickr is pretty much at a standstill.. got an error note that the server was closing down before the search for my photos was finished

Danny Smits · 4 February 2014 - 10:39

After being up for more than a week -thank you-... now bad again
Edit (+10mins) : That was the shortest down I can remember. It is up right now. I did like the Panda speaking Chinese.

Nessa Bixler · 28 January 2014 - 12:23

Menu on photos not responing - ie. adit in Aviary... That menu doesn't even pull up. The "..." just lights red and nothing. Same with getting HTML or BB code menu.

Margie Lange Frans · 28 January 2014 - 05:59

Flickr 'Uploader' is not working today, nor yesterday. Contacted Flickr via email.

Sam Salt · 22 January 2014 - 04:38

Reachable but the ugly ever-scrolling screen stops half way down a page and uploader not working,

Robert Jackson · 21 January 2014 - 08:25

Flickr is down in Nashville and South Carolina. Love the Panda picture.

Hernan Soberon · 21 January 2014 - 08:17

I can't see the home page. Most be under maintenance. The cute girl and panda picture is on.

Josiah Windler · 14 January 2014 - 17:13

Flickr is flickering to an end and my photos will not upload. The ubuntu photo competition is using Flickr uuuggghhhhh!!!

Steven Moreno · 30 December 2013 - 20:58

My Flickr account is getting harder to log in. I'm persistently told "503 server unavailable" but Flickr says it's only unavailable to me. I have no problems with any other sites.

Perhaps it's time to find another picture hosting site.

Jeremai Smith · 29 December 2013 - 23:39

Haven't been able to upload any photos to Flickr for the last three days. I get the message "You can't upload at the moment. Connection offline."

Mahendra Singh · 29 December 2013 - 09:01

Not able to access flickr at all. its ip is resolving but it is not usable at all. I have noticed this behavior several times during last week as well.

Karen Ang · 28 December 2013 - 18:07

unable to access flickr at all. the website keeps directing me to other websites like facebook and google, tried on different devices and it is the same. only accessible via mobile phone.

Michael Harris · 24 December 2013 - 07:53

Flickr may not be down but it is unusably slow ... any connection with their silly changes to allow embedding photos (messed up with their big logo) into web sites? If so it is TWO black marks for Flickr!

Hazel Owen · 19 December 2013 - 15:38

Flickr is down for me - getting error message: "Description: Unable to locate the server named "yts2fts-rw.www.flickr.com" --- the server does not have a DNS entry. Perhaps there is a misspelling in the server name, or the server no longer exists. Double-check the name and try again."

Keep getting this error message. I'm not typing "rw" btw.

Unknown Host

This is kind of a last straw deal for me and Flickr. Searching for other more reliable photo hosting sites now.

Hugh Hill · 19 December 2013 - 15:37

Looks like the P.N elves have been hack attacking their website rivals...

WFT is wrong with flickr these days?

Shankar Subramanian · 15 December 2013 - 00:05

Flickr is still down it appears. I keep getting the 'this page is taking too long to respond' and 'page not found' note for the past 4 days. However this happens only at home in Sharjah. I tried opening it here at work, and it seems to work here though. Strange. But so frustrating as I do all my flickr work from home.

David Cox · 12 December 2013 - 10:12

Flickr.com still seems to be down as in not completely functional somehow

Wanda Williams · 12 December 2013 - 09:46

this site probably just says flickr is working because the main page is for most people.. but then when you try to sign in, it automatically changes the address to "www.yfor.flickr.com" this is most likely because flickr and yahoo are changing flickr to the new layout that everyone hates! LOL why do you think the address says "yfor" that mean yahoo for flickr.. just put two and two together people! LOL

Manoel Moraes · 12 December 2013 - 09:36

I'm getting that same yfor.flickr error message that others have reported here in Brazil

Wanda Williams · 12 December 2013 - 09:34

man.. are they doing maintenance? or are the CHANGING flickr to that new layout!!! we shall see soon!

Rob Jennings · 12 December 2013 - 09:33

You can get to the sign on page but then you get the error message as described above

Ken Tang · 12 December 2013 - 09:31

I'm getting that same yfor.flickr error message that others have reported.

Lynda Higgs · 12 December 2013 - 09:31

DNS error message no service in Germany either - I was signed in and then it just disappeared!

Rachael Sherwood · 12 December 2013 - 09:30

I'm getting this message when trying to connect to Flickr. I know they've had issues the last 48 hours with view counts but it was up earlier.

"Unknown Host - Description: Unable to locate the server named "www.yfor.flickr.com" --- the server does not have a DNS entry. Perhaps there is a misspelling in the server name, or the server no longer exists. Double-check the name and try again."

David Quick · 12 December 2013 - 09:29

I'm in the UK and getting exactly the same error message as Patricia Crawford.

Billy Rehlaender · 12 December 2013 - 09:29

Unable to locate the server named "www.yfor.flickr.com" --- the server does not have a DNS entry.

Steve Ryan · 12 December 2013 - 09:28

Janell Hayes Hustead · 12 December 2013 - 09:26

Server Connection Closed

Description: The server "rw.www.flickr.com" closed the connection before the transaction was completed.

David Woodbury · 12 December 2013 - 09:25

Flickr may be up but constantly get a server timeout when trying to access different pages. Always full of glitches but very bad lately.

Using Windows 7, ie10 on my desk top, could not open flickr page, (site not responding). Fix- Hit f12 on keyboard, in browser mode tab switch to ie9 and then try flickr page again. Bingo!

Okianosboy Okan · 10 November 2013 - 23:10

I try to access the page, it gives the message to me "Hello- new account signups are temporarily unavailable from this network address space used by your Internet Service Provider." help!!!

Andrew Ward · 7 November 2013 - 14:38

Past two days... Flickr is broke... Just says: "Hold your clicks a moment please... Flickr has the hiccups. We're looking into the problem right now." It's been that way two days. Different browsers, different OS, Even after flushing cache. What is going on??? (not that it matters, but I'm in the same business-park as yahoo... I can see them by looking out my window. But they are BUSTED!

Danette Howes Holley · 6 November 2013 - 14:25

I can't view photos. When I click on a selected photo I get the Bad Panda message.

Karen McMechan Grande · 2 November 2013 - 10:31

After working in Aviary I can't get the redone photo to upload back to flickr :(

Shahril Dzulkifli · 28 October 2013 - 19:07

I am also having the same problem here. I thought my home's Internet connection went down before realizing that Flickr itself went down when I tried to login several times. Can anybody at Flickr fix this problem?

Matteo Prezioso · 28 October 2013 - 17:52

October 28th - flickr totally down. trying with Firefox & Chrome. Yahoo is ok, flickr down. That sucks.

Kevin Pashuk · 21 October 2013 - 07:47

Bad Panda is back... Monday October 21... API connections (Fluidr, Facebook) having issues too.

Deverne Coleman · 18 October 2013 - 11:17

the top yahoo bar and Flickr bar are visible, and whatever picture is currently just been posted by people I follow will show up, but the rest of the screen around it will be white, and it is completely frozen. I cant even refresh it, I have to click the close out tab on my Flickr icon on my toolbar. it is really messed up. it seems like other people are able to use it. Everything on my computer is working except for Flickr.

Bill Thomas · 16 October 2013 - 12:56

ditto, can't access my flickr account, even though I can get on yahoo

Ronda Broatch · 9 October 2013 - 21:55

Still getting the Bad Panda page when I log in. Says it's up and running, but not for me!

MY Photo · 9 October 2013 - 11:13

I couldn't get on through my links, tried different browsers, cleared my cache, restarted my computer. I had logged off and later clicked someone else's Flickr link, was on Flickr right away, able to log back on and navigate. Go figure. I'm starting to hate panda's though...

Drew Carpenter · 9 October 2013 - 10:29

Flickr is definitely DOWN. Again... seems like the new changes they are doing keeps messing up the site.

MY Photo · 9 October 2013 - 10:27

Down for me in the DC area, too. Baby pandas at the National Zoo are cool. Pandas on my flickr page are most definitely NOT cool.

Harriet Shakespeare · 8 October 2013 - 19:58

With Firefox I'm getting the bad panda. With IE, I'm able to use the site as usual. Try a different browser if you still can't get in.

Perry Pollock · 8 October 2013 - 19:44

flickr is down.. amazed that I still pay for this service. BTW I am on the east coast of the US.

Leon Olson · 8 October 2013 - 19:42

Bad panda, bad panda, bad panda. It's been down for at least an hour in SLC Utah, but it just fine in Tooele, Utah, where my friend has been accessing it just fine. Sigh.

Bryant Olsen · 8 October 2013 - 19:39

Flickr is down. Probably has something to do with the "new" photo layout they are testing. That's right, another total revamping of Flickr is in the works, and it sucks even worse than the last one.I'm really getting sick of Yahoo managment!!

Ross Chamings · 8 October 2013 - 19:38

Flickr is Down here in Wodonga, Australia too! Pity they didn't announce it beforehand...?

Stephen Dexter · 8 October 2013 - 19:36

Flickr has been down for about an hour. Those blinking Panda's. I am in London.

Chen-Li Tien · 8 October 2013 - 19:21

Server is up but it gives you the panda only... funny but I am not happy with it.

George Burgan · 8 October 2013 - 19:07

Flickr...down. Not "up" as reported here. Can't believe I'm paying for this.

Turquoise Crow · 8 October 2013 - 19:04

Yes Flickr is up if you want to look at a stupid panda bear.. That link works on Flickr but nothing else does and I mean nothing.

Turquoise Crow · 8 October 2013 - 18:56

What the heck does a panda have to do with anything ..La, la land where Flickr has gone ..Nothing happening here when connecting to Flickr

Woo Sang · 8 October 2013 - 18:39

Can't access Flickr. :-( Bad panda is now almost a permanent screen resident today

Eric Kogan · 8 October 2013 - 18:19

with flickr, one minute you're on top of the world, another minute it's crashing down

Tynan Phillips · 8 October 2013 - 18:02

Its down for me right after I uploaded some new photos and need it. Ugh bad panda indeed. :(

Bernie Millington · 5 October 2013 - 22:48

Hmm - can't seem to get into flickr this morning! Keep getting server error message. No problem getting into anything else - just Flickr - tried Chrome and Firefox - both same yet your site says it is up and reachable??

Kevin Prickett · 30 September 2013 - 10:35

When I sign in to my account on flickr the site is stuck on a blank page with a redirect url. Need access asap to forward photos to customer

Roberto Aloi · 26 September 2013 - 17:48

Cannot access flickr. Had a bad feeling as I was sending photos to my blog... Was really hesitating.

3d US Infantry Regiment FRG (The Old Guard) · 16 September 2013 - 08:44

Yes, that worked (from previous comment). Went to www.flickr.com/help/test/, all was green, then navigated to the pages I needed. Glitchy, but glad of the info I found here.

Manhattan DD Council · 16 September 2013 - 06:34

flickr has been has down almost continually yesterday & now today. The panda is annoying: not at all cute when trying to accomplish something. Anyone know what's up?

Sally Rush Murray · 16 September 2013 - 06:17

Don't know if this will help anyone else but it's worth a try: I tried to log in this morning: login proceeded without error but then I got the Panda. I then went to www.flickr.com/help/test/ and got in successfully - everything functioned OK and I was already logged in.

North Bank · 16 September 2013 - 01:39

Flickr highly unstable and hanging a lot this morning, am in UK.
Update: And now the Panda Screen is up.

Doug Cook · 15 September 2013 - 10:22

been down a long time, I just get the Bad, Bad Panda screen. Sunday is a good day for to use flickr, and I pay for it too. Why does it have so many problems lately?? They never respond to questions and just make things slower and broken. I would leave them in a heartbeat, but there is over seven years of my work there.

Scott Matthews · 15 September 2013 - 10:18

just getting that stupid panda page, unless I log out of flickr, then it 'works', as soon as you log in again it's panda time.

Raptor Hawkeye · 15 September 2013 - 10:00

@David Cummings : Yahoo owns Flickr and it was the Yahoo CEO (Marissa Mayer) that initiated these changes to Flickr! New Flickr came online May 20, 2013 and has been rapidly going down hill ever since. It is now a totally dysfunctional photo blog and I am afraid they will not recover!!

Flickr is down in eastern Canada on all supported browsers!

Bill Gracey · 15 September 2013 - 09:54

Flickr is down again in San Diego, and has been for the last half hour.

Nick Pound · 15 September 2013 - 09:28

Yahoo really are trying their utmost to kill off Flickr aren't they. What an awful mess it is now.

Jan Nagalski · 15 September 2013 - 09:04

The stinkin panda is the only thing working on flickr right now! it is DOWN!

Erin Perry · 15 September 2013 - 09:03

argh! please no more pandas today... and they have disabled their twitter feed to accept comments. no mention of why, what or when things will resolve! hiding their heads behind the panda!

Drew Jackman · 15 September 2013 - 09:02

Flickr is down. :( the Lego community's communication and sharing of ideas has been compromised! This website is misinformed.

Dave Gordon · 15 September 2013 - 08:48

I am going to start printing my images out and sticking them on the front of my house for people to see... more reliable.

Surely their Panda message is wrong? "Flickr is down for panda planned maintenance. We'll be back with the usual photo goodness at about 1 PM GMT." It's a'ready 16:51 GMT. Unless I am drunk again.

Chris Rivers · 14 September 2013 - 11:36

Their "Old Uploader" is working, so you have an alternative upload capability if you need it.

Kristina Krause · 14 September 2013 - 10:02

I can't upload photos either. It goes through the uploading process and times out when it gets to actually putting the photo on Flickr. I'm so sick of that "bad panda" screen that comes up when a photo fails to upload YET AGAIN.

Camille Carr · 14 September 2013 - 09:01

Flickr reports "We are aware of the issue and fixing it".. 9/14/13 at 12:00 pm.
