Can't Access Origin Store - 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.

Lukas Veikšra · 31 March 2014 - 05:21

I cant go into Origin web.. I try other browsers - its same. My friends can open it, but i cant. What problem?

Isobel Hughes Shaw · 30 March 2014 - 07:01

this is what is says when i try to get in from the origin website. origin is telling me i am not online from my desktop shortcut.

can anyone put the below error in simpler terms for me please?

Proxy Error
The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server. The proxy server could not handle the request POST /uk/login.
Reason: Error reading from remote server

Kyle Kedzuch · 25 March 2014 - 12:46

I'm trying to install SimCity and Origin is not going online to allow me to begin. Buy games, install games, play games... Sigh... Simpler times. Side note: I hope this doesn't interfere with the one player mode for SimCity. I want the patch, but I guess I'll have to wait until Origin gets it @#$% together.

Fokke Ettema · 25 March 2014 - 07:14

can't login to Origin to. I bought simcity 4 days ago and i couldn't log in :(

Adrian Toth · 25 March 2014 - 03:04

Can't login to Origin AGAIN!! Online login currently unavailable. Is it just me?

Sammi Hahn · 21 March 2014 - 10:28

i cant log in and it wont let me what going with your origin website. please let me know soon.

Robert Brumley · 16 March 2014 - 09:35

Origin is not working and will not let Sims 3 work either every time I try to get either to run it doesnt

Scottie Armani · 2 March 2014 - 12:29

What is wrong with their site??? I can't even navigate! Trying to redeem a product code. what ever happened to plopping in the program and running it without having to redeem online???

Mikey Jones · 28 February 2014 - 11:37

Can't log in. Never buying Origin/EA again after reading about all these other VERY UNHAPPY people. Great business model - rarely works and alienating your customers. Good luck with that.

Edward Rigby · 28 February 2014 - 07:56

in my case origin told me to run microsoft fix it and it will reset my host file support.microsoft.com/kb/972034

Henry Existance · 26 February 2014 - 04:07

you're full of bullshit man, Origin is down right now for everyone, and it's always got issues, and you're telling me it's up and working, LMFAO

Julieanne Isherwood · 20 February 2014 - 06:33

I am not impressed with being railroaded by Origin when i purchased the sims 3 at a shop. Cant download origin form net and if i install sims 3 from disc origin initiates update even when saying no and then it hangs and nothing further happens. Just let me play the game without origin.

David Stephen Anderson · 13 February 2014 - 15:57

Trying to activate my copy of MASS EFFECT TRILOGY. i am getting: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE: this action could not be completed. we may be eperiencing unusually high server load or undergoing maintenance. please try again in a few minutes. ive been trying for over an hour and your site says everything is working. i have less than 24hrs to get this installed or it will be a waist of my money and i will try to return it before i will be unavailable for the next 10 months. please fix this problem ASAP!

Biomechanoid Home · 7 February 2014 - 03:46

Damn, I can not play Mass Effect 3 coop for 4-5 days now!!! Every time I'm trying to launch origin it just loading forever and then I'm getting error


Lola Guin · 5 February 2014 - 13:41

Can't log in to The Simpsons: Tapped Out. It says "Origin network could not be reached at this time".

Carol Burgess · 5 February 2014 - 13:16

Thought if you download a game that you bought from origin you should still be able to play it without login to main server. Clicked on game and opens origin home page but not game and now it seems impossible to even get into origin on desktop over the last week. I hope they fix what ever there doing soon.

Steve Coffman · 5 February 2014 - 12:31

I can't get into Simpson's tapped out. It say origin network cannot be reached

Bory Jack Suh · 3 February 2014 - 09:24

i can't login to origin, origin wants to be moar like steam then have services like steam

Theresa Boyd Hardy · 29 January 2014 - 08:47

i cant log into origin so i can play the sims 3 can someone please help..

Zak Finch · 22 January 2014 - 06:54

Hey everytime i try and install sims 3 the wizard pops up before the language and then just disappears, ive tried everything i can think of! What do i do?! Any help please

Rebecca Irene · 2 January 2014 - 23:29

So Origin is up but SimCity servers prevent me from playing the game still. I just bought it like 4 hours ago and haven't been able to play it since. :(

Jesse Milliken · 2 January 2014 - 22:59

steam and origin aren't even the only ones under attack right now. This is getting out of control.

Luis Atlas Montano Chelsea · 2 January 2014 - 21:35

the worst thing is us ultimate team players just lost a bunch of coins thanks again EA

Kraal Davis · 2 January 2014 - 21:27

what really pisses me off... is i dont get a lot of game time and for the first time in ages i have the night to play... AND I CANT !!! these DDOS pricks are complete keyboard pussys

Luis Atlas Montano Chelsea · 2 January 2014 - 21:25

EA can defend their ass there full of shit worst servers but yet I buy their game every year, they should Improve with all the money we give to them (FIFA 14)

Kraal Davis · 2 January 2014 - 21:17

READ THIS BEFORE YOU COMMENT : kotaku.com/hackers-claim-to-have-broken-eas-origin-service...

Shang-Chi Manchu · 2 January 2014 - 21:14

Server down is one thing... definitely bad but happens whatever the reason. No update, acknowledgment, message, eta or status is horrible and inexcusable. WTF!

AK Bear · 2 January 2014 - 21:12

Amazing how many people here can't read. The servers are being DDOSed by some retards. That's why they can't be accessed. Duh!

If you blame EA for this, you should be banned from the internet for the rest of your life.

Tracey Rudd · 2 January 2014 - 21:10

DERP @DerpTrolling 2h
We've directed the Gaben Laser Beam™ @ the EA login servers. Origin #offline

William Fowler · 2 January 2014 - 21:09

What's sad about this is all they are really accomplishing is denying us access to play our origin bought games... come on man...

Chad Swarthout · 2 January 2014 - 21:02

@Armani Axe They are getting a DDOS attack from https://twitter.com/DerpTrolling

Bradley Lamb · 2 January 2014 - 20:58

No problem! Im now experiencing multiple problems with origin. My download did shut off and cancel!

Beth Cunningham Kelch · 2 January 2014 - 20:53

Origin will not launch. Says I'm not connected to internet but I am....

Bradley Lamb · 2 January 2014 - 20:46

It most likely will not affect downloads because the download is only paused.

Allison Mulcrone · 2 January 2014 - 20:43

I'm currently in the process of downloading three games and in the middle of the download it turns to offline mode. Is this going to affect my download in any way?

Malo Xmalox · 2 January 2014 - 20:38

twitter.com/AskEASupport/status/418957286543867904 They are under attack by DERP. https://twitter.com/DerpTrolling

Eugene Balykov · 2 January 2014 - 20:34

EA are you serious? Fkn NY holidays and origin server is down during days?

Brad Kalinoski · 2 January 2014 - 20:29

Cant log in to origin, this is BS. In three days Ive been able to play 2 times.

Tramesha Davis · 2 January 2014 - 20:28

even thesims3.com is down. I just got this game I want to play it!! -_-

Van Spear · 2 January 2014 - 20:26

Has EA made any statement about how long until this stuff will be fixed?

Richard Steinert · 2 January 2014 - 20:24

just as i booted a new OS and needed to redownload all the games.. At least Steam seams to work fine again.

Al Hudson · 2 January 2014 - 20:22

Yep both Origin and Steam are down thanks to: https://twitter.com/DerpTrolling Just like Matt said... I was playing BF3 then... bye

James Davon Smith · 2 January 2014 - 20:21

This is why I hate this new Security, i PAID money now I can't play my games when I have time to play them!!! what a rip off!!!

Matt Rowland · 2 January 2014 - 20:18

It's Origin and Steam because of these idiots! https://twitter.com/DerpTrolling
There attacking the login servers. DDOS EA/Origin login servers.

Ron Varga · 2 January 2014 - 20:17

Nothing is happening. I've tried to chat with C.S. (located in India - of all places) and never got a response. Something shitty is happening.

Seth Daniel · 2 January 2014 - 20:16

for the people asking what to do with these services down, you can join me and cry quietly to yourself because it was all you had planned for the evening.

Kraal Davis · 2 January 2014 - 20:14

what pisses me off... is the lack of information we get... if i got a message saying' we apologize but will be back up in 2 hours' i wouldnt be so pissed... communication is key

Ed Smith · 2 January 2014 - 20:13

Origin is being subjected to a denial of service right now, or so the hacker says on twitter

Emily Michelle · 2 January 2014 - 20:12

I thought something was wrong with my comp - but its Origin... as usual: "online login unavailable"

Ryan Gephart · 2 January 2014 - 20:12

All I wanna do...is play The Old Republic... worked all day, get home, take a nap, eat, go to the gym, get all excited to force choke some fools... and I find out that not only is Origin not working so I can't play TOR... but neither is Steam... or the EA PS3/PS4 servers... why, God, whyyyyyyy!?

Het Blum · 2 January 2014 - 20:01

Logged me out of my game saying I lost connection to Origin now I cant even get origin to load.

David Frisbey · 2 January 2014 - 19:58

When is EA going to get their s%^# together. I'm sure now, they are incapable of learning anything. As if BF3 wasn't a big enough fail. Here they go again with the stupid "origin" thing and the RIDICULOUS browser integration. EPIC FAIL!!! never buying EA again. I dont care how good the game is. OH, and I just sold my stock....so ....there...:P

Heather Carson · 2 January 2014 - 19:58

Origin and Steam are both down right now. I wonder if it has anything to do with the Winter Storm that is hitting right now.

Paul Zalesak · 2 January 2014 - 19:57

http://goo.gl/Quio7A WTF? I found out if i disconnect from the internet and Im pinging my PC is online :OOOOO

Matthew Nicol · 2 January 2014 - 19:56

this is why i think i prefer console gaming you dont get these issues all the time like u do with origin and u can still play the game without being online

Anan Dewa Awan · 2 January 2014 - 19:55

Long time ago, I'd go through all this crap to play Bioware games but ME3 will prolly be the last game I play that has anything to do with them. Cyberpunk 2077, Witcher 3 I'll get from GOG, Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity I'll get from Steam.

Bradley Lamb · 2 January 2014 - 19:52

Another thing, @www.origin.com won't let me login unless I add an item to my cart and proceed to checkout? And as soon as I cancel me checkout it logs me right back out?

Wolf Mason · 2 January 2014 - 19:49

Last time I pay to effectively rent a game from EA. (You know, since access to the product I PAID FULL PRICE FOR is entirely at their discretion.)

Jeff Fantin · 2 January 2014 - 19:48


An error has occurred while attempting to login. Please try again later.

I guess thats better then getting into BF4 and having it crash. EA Sucks!!!

Anan Dewa Awan · 2 January 2014 - 19:48

Origin...pfffttt. So unreliable. I wish they'd put some of their games on Steam. I've got more downtime from Origin than any other server I log into.

Tramesha Davis · 2 January 2014 - 19:47

I have windows 8 and online origin works but if I use the little app thingy it says I don't have an internet connection...anyone else have that problem?

Jarrod Paez · 2 January 2014 - 19:47

This might be why.. https://twitter.com/DerpTrolling They supposedly DDOS EA/Origin login servers.

Shang-Chi Manchu · 2 January 2014 - 19:46

no respect for it's customers :( Oh but wait... their store is up so you can buy more games! Gee how odd??? Arggg.

Jeffrey Faber · 2 January 2014 - 19:46

I think the government is implementing some new internet securities, more big brother on the way!

Bradley Lamb · 2 January 2014 - 19:44

Origin logged me off and wont let me go back online. Bought a game 3 days ago and it is now 93% and stopped and put me offline. Guess who's never buying anything from Origin again? This guy. Absolutely ridiculous.

Yüksel Deniz · 2 January 2014 - 19:42

EA is the wealthiest game company but can't set up a f#!king proper server

Kraal Davis · 2 January 2014 - 19:41

im just glad there is a site like this so i could see others too were having issues... eliminates me spending hours trying to debug

Armando J. ML · 2 January 2014 - 19:38

when I click any of my battlefield games, I just get that stupid origin loading circle and nothing happens...

Brodland Matthew · 2 January 2014 - 19:31

its a little weird origin says its up my computer says its down what is it I got multiple games that are off origin all paid for I am getting pretty upset for all this inconvenience I don't like it one bit if u cant keep the servers up then maybe someone should make a new game launcher. I work everyday just like the average joe and when I come home want to relax I just want to play my game fore a bit and cant half the time do to problems with origin or battlelog ext then maybe these things should not be sold or give the person there money back im done

Ian Potter · 2 January 2014 - 19:26

it keep getting EA disconnected errors and now orign wont even connect

Sara Harris Dykes · 2 January 2014 - 19:23

Yes both mine and my husband's won't load. Origin message says it's unavailable.

Ken Corley · 2 January 2014 - 19:22

Cannot connect. I uninstalled and re-installed thinking I messed something up.

Joey Grixti Jr · 2 January 2014 - 19:16

yep I cant log in either origin is down. I called them and they said its due to overwhelming traffic... that's great but I d like to play the games I paid for...

Scott Lawson Hamilton · 2 January 2014 - 19:06

Not used origin for a while and did a password reset as was not sure on it, the website page would never load properly took me 45 minutes just to get the login page to give me a pw reset, then when load up origin programme constant rotating circle

Edward E Baez Esparrech · 1 January 2014 - 08:16

I get a constant rotating circle after trying to login. The page never loads. It says online login not available

Elanas Bartulis · 31 December 2013 - 02:45

origin.com website won't open for me on pc. The images wount load properly. But when i try with my phone it opens just fine. And i cant login to origin account

Joanne Harpley · 29 December 2013 - 15:21

Trying to reset my forgotten password for EA Origin to load Sims 3 onto a new laptop. Origin gives the opportunity to re-enter a new code for varification and says they have just sent an email to for me to follow and reset a new password, but after 50 attempts, there is still no email in my inbox OR spam/junk box, like it suggests.

Erin Helton · 28 December 2013 - 17:46

My cart wont load. I'm trying to buy the sims 3 starter pack and the 70's 80's & 90's expansion pack and take advantage of the 40% off but I can't get into my cart to check out... :(

Henry Landivar · 28 December 2013 - 11:29

They should move on to steam instead of origin since EA has no idea what they are doing

Neto Okpala · 26 December 2013 - 19:15

it keeps saying i need to be online to loggin what the heck does that mean

Tes Ppls · 24 December 2013 - 20:01

I just bought Sims 3 and I am unable to activate my game siting technical difficulties, so disappointed even after I am logged in!

Víťa Petřík · 2 December 2013 - 05:41

Page not working for me, purchased The Simcity today, but can't create Origin account via SW and page is not working. OMG

Luke Melville · 29 November 2013 - 22:34

Unable to purchase anything off the site, gives me an error Ref#10048, have tried multiple browsers and computers

Kurt Johnson · 29 November 2013 - 12:50

Cannot get help from Origin. Site freezes even after deleting cache and cookies for Safari. Also tried Chrome and Firefox unsuccessfully. Since BF4 for PS4 is not working for me, impossible to get assistance from support that EA points to.

Christopher J. Allen · 29 November 2013 - 11:41

It let me buy something the 30 mins later tried to buy something else and now they wont process my payment

Tarha Selvidge · 28 November 2013 - 09:53

Still not working. Can't see ot add anything to the shopping cart!!!

Britni Danielle Whitson · 28 November 2013 - 09:10

currently can only log in "offline". Unable to go online... This happened right in the middle of installing my game -_-

Dustin Seals · 28 November 2013 - 08:56

I'm having the same problem as Christopher J. Allen I can login add items to cart but will NOT load cart need to fix this. How can you have a sale but than we can purchase anything that's on sale.

Christopher J. Allen · 28 November 2013 - 08:19

It will let me add things to the cart but then it won't let me load the cart

Ryan Walvatne · 23 November 2013 - 12:17

I am trying to redeem a product code and origin website sucks balls. It asks for me to enter a security question so I do then I press the save button and nothing happens. I have turned my computer off and on several times. this website blows monkey balls. I pay for a game and can't even play it!

Ark Ington · 19 November 2013 - 08:06

I hate you so much EA. who tells a customer sorry you are having trouble with a purchase we will have someone contact you in 2-3 weeks?

Nikolaj Lund · 13 November 2013 - 04:47

Same here! Unable to log on:-( Been the same for the last hour or two.

Robert Håkansson · 30 October 2013 - 15:36

Why in the f#!k does a program in the year of 2013 have so many issues like origin? I cant log into my already existing account, i can log in via EA´s hompage that "currently works for origin" as well, i cant create a new account, i cant verify my email, i cant do SHIT with this program and it is currently destroying my evening.. I dont know who developed Origin but if it breaks for nearly 95% of the PAYING COSTUMERS someone needs to get his or hers face slapped.. Dumbest f#!king thing ever to see that a program completly destroyes itself and connectivity AFTER a security update..

Jarred Owen · 28 October 2013 - 10:51

having issues trying to instal simcity everytime it says im not online when trying to login to origin anyone help please

C-One Muhd Mukhlis · 10 October 2013 - 08:07

dafuq. i cant login into origin as it said online login currently unavailable. how i can download fifa14?

Ryan Weckbacher · 1 October 2013 - 09:19

The Origin servers must be getting hammered or something, because I can't get into the store, through the website, nor the program.

Brarian Brayb Berry · 26 September 2013 - 12:01

i cant log into my account i just brought the new sim city game and i have the client but says im not online when im am.
