Pictures not showing in my watch list, again

Last Edited 05:10:34 PM

Once again, I have blank thumbnails in the watch list. Lost out on 1 of 3 items I wanted to bid on last night because I couldn't see the items. Seller lost a sell too. I thought eBay had this issue fixed? Its not just my laptop, it is the same way on mobile device. Anyone else have blank pics?

 

There is another thread on this issue so I'll put this thread to bed. EBay mods have responded that the tech dept is working to fix the problem. Thanks to all who have chimed in. I don't feel so alone in my frustration.

 

UPDATE: Another poster on another thread suggested using the All Lists tab instead of Watch List. Using All Lists brings all the pictures back! Good luck to all....

Me three! Thumbnails have been gone from my watch list for about a week now. Very annoying.
Anyone have a cure?

Same here! For a while I could get most of them to come up again by refreshing the page, but for the last two days I get nothing no mater how many times I try.

Changing to All Lists instead of Watch List brought the images back!!!! Thank you for posting the work around fix. Here's hoping Ebay fixes the problem with the Watch List.

My Watch List is the same way.  I have 13 items on my WL - 11 of them have no picture, and the other 2 show the picture normally.

Same problem here.

No thumbnail pictures of my watch list items.

Come on ebay, get your act together.

This should have been fixed in a few hours, not days or weeks! 

 

UPDATE: Thanks to cleverfoxjewelrybox we have a solution.

just hover over "My eBay" and click on "All lists"

Someone suggested clicking All List under your My EBay tab. I tried it and all my pics are visable! Crossing fingers this holds until a real fix comes along.

Yes, this is very annoying. Seems to me that Ebay needs to stay on top of things.  When things like this happens, it just seems to take longer and longer to resolve the problem.  Makes me want to stop putting things in my watch list.  Feel bad for the sellers when we can't see the items we are watching.

They send an offer to get 6% in ebay bucks yesterday, but today no thumbnails on watched items. Tried 3 different browsers and still doesn't work. Don't need it that bad. Sellers the losers when that happens.

Same here, no images in watch list, regardless of browser being used.

Same here - different machines and browsers yield same result - only one pic out of 80 items on my watch list.  Pics show fine in other views, searches, etc. - just not on watch list.  Obviously and eBay issue.  None of the other websites I visit seem to have a similar issue; just eBay.  I find this to be a recurring problem - it's really annoying and I don't understand why it keeps happening.

Funny how my first 4 pages have blank pics and the saved ended listings have pics. If I go to page 4, then back to page 1, the pics reappear. The only way I got to bid on 2 of the items I wanted was to go to the sellers listing. Unfortunately, the 3rd item was a different seller and I wasn't fast enough to nab it. All 3 of the items I wanted ending within minutes of each other. I really wanted all 3 compacts!!

same issue here too.  ebay not checking their webpages very accurately.  my images or thumnails are fine for purchases, just blank for watched items.

Experiencing the same problem.  A few days ago started with one image.  Then the list of invisible images grew.  This morning, my entire watch list is not visible.  I believe this issue has occurred in the past.  It usually lasted a few days to a couple weeks.  But never this bad.  Previously, the issue was resolved.  Has eBay responded to this issue, yet?  Maybe I missed it?

@milret1951 There is actually another thread on this issue. I didn't see it or I wouldn't have started another. But anyway, eBay did respond on the larger thread that the tech group is aware of the problem and working to fix it. Hopefully they fix it for good this time. It's been a problem off and on for a couple of years.

Having same problem! No pictures showing up in watch list has been going on intermittently (SP?) for several days. Makes it tough keeping up with items I'm interested in bidding on!!!!!!

The pictures in my watch list started disappearing a few days ago.  Now non of my Watched Items show pictures of the item!

Very frustrating when trying to bid!  Is it an Ebay issue?

No answer ... jsut a repeat of the issue.  Any solutions yet?

None that I've found. Another eBay gremlin that only eBay can fix I suppose. Another thread suggested running a malware check but I had already tried that and came up clean. Another suggested emptying the cache and refreshing but I didn't have any different results from that either. Maybe try those suggestions and see if works for you?

I suspect they are forcing bids.......check out your bid list.....you probably have thumbnails........your watch list sits blank.  coincidence, I am sure, but watching is part of bidding   ....right?  Think we just lost a tool.   lyn

Firefox not showing pictures on watch list but will show on all list.Works fine on my Google Chrome very strange.

I'm having the same problem as of today and it seems to only affect me while I use Firefox. All other browsers allow me to navigate eBay with pictures displaying properly. I wonder if it's just a browser issue and not eBay. I cleared my history and cache, but so far no luck. I haven't found any working solution yet after doing some research. This is so time consuming!

Wow... Having same problem......I was blaming Kaspersky...my internet security.......really think there should at least be a number we can call....Have always said I would never sell on ebay....just another reason to avoid these folks.......when all the business ends up on Etsy or Ruby Lane....they may pay attention......glad they do not have my contract.  lyn

I have been having the same problem with watched item pictures for quite a while now. Sometimes some, most of the time, none! but only on watched items... strange!

 

the "all lists" solution doesn't last... the next time you go to "my ebay", its all the same!

 

I doubt ebay pays any attention to these posts but I'll bet they have noticed how sales have dropped off to zilch. Lets see how much longer the CEO gets their $10,000,000.00+  per year!

I have been having the same problem for a month. Have talk to Ebay. But no one cares. Had Ebay call and hang up on me. I guess they do not care we are having problems.
