There was I, browsing my way down a list after searching, when all of a sudden it decided that I didn't need to see the photos anymore

My search results page still has thumbnails on it, but when I click them there is no bigger pic. I've even been back to ones previously viewed, but they've gone AWOL too

Any ideas why?

Bizarre...

Have you got any other browsers installed? If you're on Firefox does it look OK using Internet Explorer?

Are you going to come along quietly, or am I going to have to use ear plugs?

If you don't have another browser to try I'd go for the old favourites of clear your temporary files (Tools -> Internet Options -> General tab) & restart the PC.

Unless you've got some other kind of advert or pop-up blocker or something which is going a bit nuts & blocking all external pics I'm at a loss at what could be happening...

Given that you can see thumbnails, this might not work, however...
If you are using XP, try IE > tools menu, internet options, advanced tab, scroll down to the multimedia section and see/change what picture options are enabled.

I got that on Friday, even though I'm running IE6 with the latest service pack and patches. I just switched to Firefox and all was ok.

Is it still happening after rebooting, Strix?

It happens to me sometimes, but usually corrects itself if I reboot.

However, was it the computer that's decided to hibernate until the weather gets warmer?

The re-boot seems to have fixed it - thanks for all the suggestions.

Ann - they're 2 different machines. The hibernating one is in work.

I didn't know PCs could hibernate

Old thread, similar problem..
I can't see photos on ebay.. I've tried looking on ebay help pages, but there are pages and pages of Q+A's on there to do with photos, that I thought it might be a bit easier and quicker to ask on here..

The pictures besides the list of items are coming up as the little box with the square, circle and triangle, then changing to the little box with a red X in it.. I've tried changing from list view to gallery view, tried doing the IE > tools menu, internet options, advanced tab, multimedia section and checking all boxes in there, I've tried right clicking the little box with the X in it and clicking on show picture and nothing is happening..
When I click on an item, I can see the pictures in the listing fine..

If anyone has any other suggestions on how to sort this problem out, then please please let me know as it's driving me crazy.. Cheers xx

Your JAVA is corrupted! Go to the JAVA website and install the free download, it only takes seconds.
The pics on Ebay will load instantly afterwards!
