    Got a message from Verizon to upgrade OS. Now the graphics aren't showing up. I downloaded latest Flash but still no graphics. Any suggestion? I looked for the OS but can't seem to find that info.

    Welcome to DroidForums! What are the graphics that you are missing. I am guessing you must've updated to ICS because that is the latest upgrade. You can find that information in settings, about phone.

    I have been lurking for years but never had anything to offer and never had a question. If I didn't know better, I would think it was a flash issue since it reminds me of my iPad. The area where the images are are blank. Videos that used to play, are just blank. I have updated flash. Wish I could go back to previous operating system.

    Aww, you don't want to go back - then you're stuck in time! Give us a chance to help.

    Are you speaking of in your Browser there are no graphics / videos? Open Browser, then Menu>Advanced and make sure Enable JavaScript is checked, Enable plug-ins is Always on. Then back up and select Bandwidth Management and make sure Load Images is checked.

    Let us know if that works or if you can give more details on which app and which graphics are not displaying. A URL example would be great.

    Oh, sorry. I forgot to mention I'd checked the setting recommendations by SallyC and all were already there.

    That's a Flash object. If you have Flash installed, try clearing your cache (on your browser and on Flash) and seeing if that works. Also, I'd be interested if another browser - say Dolphin - works. It displays on my Razr using the stock Browser so it's definitely not an ICS issue.

    If it still doesn't work with either browser, try uninstalling Flash and then reinstalling it.

    Fyi, Adobe Flash is no longer on the Market. Btw, i have had the same problem since upgrading to ICS. I have tried several different browsers. It seems that Boat browser is enter one i have the most luck with.

    Here's the link for it on Market/Play. It's not going to be supported after ICS, but it's good now.

    Thanks for the link. Searching for it on the market/play you will not find it. I have posted about this issue a few days ago. I have tried everything, including removing and reinstalling flash, clearing cache, etc.
    The problem i have is watching videos. I used to be able to watch videos (for instance, those which are embedded in Yahoo news articles) now they just pop up a black screen stating that "flash is needed" (which i already have).
    Yesterday, someone recommended Boat browser from the market/play and it has been working pretty good with videos. However, when searching Yahoo for specific videos, i still have problems playing them. Was never like this before updating to ICS.

    I tried reloading Flash and clearing cache. Still couldn't get the radar to show. Loaded Dolphin- very cool browser- and I can see the moving radar again! Thanks!

    Okay, now you know it's something in Browser's Settings. If you still care, try clearing the cache again and make sure enable plug-ins is always on.

    If that's not it, I don't know what is but I'm glad Dolphin works. I like that app anyways. :)

    I have the stock browser, dolphin, boat and chrome browsers installed. I can see the radar on all off them except boat. For the real test, click on this link and tell me if you can watch this video or if the screen just remains black? I'm trying to watch it on dolphin and it just remains black.

    I was able to see images of the videos, in both stock and Dophin browsers, but could not view videos.

    There may be something specific to that page, as opposed to Flash on ICS. I couldn't view the video but could see the playlist running horizontally below. The video looked like it was hidden above, like a layer issue. It's not a mobile Site, so the coding may be the problem.

    But if I went to http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=M3640LR98W8 which is also Flash, I can view it on all my browsers.

    So I'm not sure that link is a good test.
