The following is a list of troubleshooting tips for the most commonly encountered technical difficulties while playing Animal Jam:
- Close all browser windows—if you are using a Mac, you must fully quit the program through the menu—then restart your browser and log back into Animal Jam.
- If Animal Jam is taking a long time to load, we suggest closing all other programs or internet tabs. Make sure your computer isn't downloading anything else, as this will slow down your internet.
- Update your internet browser to its most current version.
- If possible, try logging in from a different computer to see if the issue persists. If it does not, the issue most likely lies with the computer itself.
- If you are experiencing a problem with your internet connection, verify that your network and computer hardware are in working order, then contact your internet service provider's customer support.
- If loading the game results in a black or grey screen, or if the loading screen get stuck at a certain point, make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer. You can visit the Adobe website at http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ to download the latest version.
- Clear your browser's cache.
- Verify that the time and date on your computer are accurate.
- Use a different web browser to log into Animal Jam. Please note that older versions of Internet Explorer may not be compatible with Animal Jam, and due to partial incompatibility with Adobe Flash, Safari will not show all of Animal Jam's effects properly.
- Update your Adobe Flash Player to its latest version. This is particularly helpful if loading Animal Jam results in a black or gray screen, or if the loading screen sticks at a certain point.
- Uninstall and then reinstall Adobe Flash.
