How to fix "blank" photos on Facebook. When you look at your friends' photos on Facebook, occasionally you will see a black screen. This is a Facebook fault and there is a solution. Enter the photo album you want to see. To move between photos click the photo or click the arrows on either side. When you see a photo all in black click to go the next photo and then click to go back so it loads again and is displayed correctly. If it does not work, leave the album and refresh your browser. If you have Mac CMD + R and if you use WIndows Alt + F5. This will help you look at photos without any problems.
