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 is taking ages to respond & then not formatting the page properly or displaying photos (which kind of defeats the object of Flickr). Happening on 2 different OS's & 3 different browsers on 2 hardware platforms & been going on all morning!!
Every other website is working just fine.

When using Chrome, Flickr keeps telling me there are Connection Problems when I try to upload images. My internet connection is hardwired and working fine on other devices.

When using IE 11 Flickr won't load at all past the sign in page.

Puspita Lie · 30 April 2014 - 21:06
Malaysia · Telekom Malaysia Berhad

I can't upload any pictures since the New Flickr came online. I use different platforms and still cannot upload anything. Took almost 48 hours to upload 20 pictures. 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. As other said, the problem is so many years of works there hence migrating is another problem.

For the past 48 hours, I have some issues trying to login as well. Now it's that annoying panda today. Flickr has been "faulty" recently. C'mon Flickr, pull yourself together already. What ever happened to the glorious days (prior to the big ugly update) -_-

I've been trying to log into Flickr for 3 days - via Google. I can't get in to upload photos. Anyone know what's up. The Yahoo "Contact Customer Service" area just brings up a page that says "No Data Received."

When I click on an image I get the message "Oops . An issue occurred while loading. Please refresh the page". I have tried that. Tried it in Firefox and Google Chrome and pressed CONTROL+F5 - all to no avail. Any ideas?

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.

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.

Colin Haycock · 4 February 2014 - 12:24
United Kingdom · Be Un Limited

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.

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 "" 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

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.

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!!
