I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? Google Chrome Guide 10/29/08 6:21 PM

Re: I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? Google Chrome Guide 10/29/08 6:22 PM
Problems with Pogo.com is a known issue with the java plug-in. If you're running an earlier version of Google Chrome than 0.3.154.6, then try updating. 

Also, make sure you're running the latest version of Java. Please see our Help Center article for more information (linked below).

I don't think that answer is necessarily correct in every case; I can play Pogo games without any problems some days, on others like today, my game will freeze mid-way through and I have to back out and revert back to Firefox.  My Java is the latest version and Chrome is 1.0.154.42

It seems a little odd that a Google Chrome Guide doesn't know that Chrome updates itself... and no, Pogo games do not work, at least for me. It gives the error "Java Not Found or Not Working" Mac OS X 10.6.2, Chrome 5.0.307.11, and Java 1.6.0_17

That is cause you are using a developers release for Mac instead of a stable release and if you use a stable release then you will not have issues like that

To play POGO games on FireFox, if you are running it's popup blocker, you have to create an exception allowing Pogo.com to create popups.  When I try to play a Pogo games on Chrome, after I start the game, I can hear it running, but a window with the game board is not visible.  Is there any way to allow Pogo.com to open a popup window?  I have the latest version of both Chrome and Java.  I also did a re-install of Java when Pogo Game boards would not load.  That did not help.

My experience with Pogo was that I could get to a game window and after a few seconds it stops loading the game. Then there is a timeout about 2 minutes later and the window expires. I ran Pogo's java test and its pop-up blocker tests and passed both, so it does recognize my shiny new new stable non-beta Chrome Mac does have java.

pogo.com games not working here either with latest Mac release of Chrome. it opens the game window with the ad, but then nothing happens. It does not load the game room like it should.
Re: I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? jkarle1106 6/12/10 7:38 AM
I have the latest releases of chrome, and Java. I'm running windows xp. Pogo plays fine on ie and aol. The msg I get is "" Pogo.com games use the Java plug-in. You either do not have Java installed or you have a version that is incompatible with our games. It does not cost you anything to install Java.
Do you want to install the Java plug-in now?" Has anyone come up with a fix for this?

Might as well give up on this issue, google still isn't listening or replying, or has a clue about fixing the issue or don't even care. 10/29/08 is the date of the first post here, still no answers HAHAHAHAHA
Re: I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? melay1010 11/26/10 7:14 AM
I can load the games, but some of them my pointer doesn't work.  Any help.
Re: I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? cosmaximum 12/9/10 9:45 AM
It may be that your Java engine has got out of step with Chrome. Try uninstalling Chrome, then download it again. Simple as that. Post if it works for you :)

Cos.

I was finally able to figure this out. I'll use the game I was having trouble with for the example, which is High Stakes Poker.  When I went to the High Stakes Poker page and entered the room, I tried to *sit* at one of the tables, but the new window with the game/table I'd sat at wouldn't open.  Then I noticed on the room page that there was a small red "X" in the upper corner on the address bar.  It was blocking the game pop-up.  Clicking on the "X" allowed me to change settings to allow pop-ups, therefore letting me play with no further problems.

If you have the problem with Google Chrome and pogo where the window pops up but doesn't load. My son has found the solution. When you hold the ctrl button and then click on the game, it will come as an extra tab instead of pop up window and it loads. Good luck all.
Re: I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? PicklePumpers 4/6/11 3:09 PM
I simply stopped going to Pogo. If they don't care enough to make their site work I don't care enough to use it.
Re: I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? Mardiy Farley 5/24/11 4:09 PM
The window for the game, Everyone Wins Bingo only partially opens. you can see part of the cards, and the chat block. You cannot expand the picture.  There is a little world icon, and when I click on it, it says that my connection with Pogo is not encrypted, and the Pogo website has not been verified. There is no information on how to fix it except to see if the both Google, and Java are up to date. In my case both versions are up to date.    I have decided that I will just go to Explorer to play. It's inconvenient but Oh WELL

"I simply stopped going to Pogo. If they don't care enough to make their site work I don't care enough to use it."

Why is it Pogo's responsibility when it works fine on Firefox AND Internet Explorer?

The only browser it doesn't work on is Chrome.
Re: I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? kodiakwolf 8/21/11 5:43 AM
Seems the solution is to not use Google Chrome, unfortunate...Firefox here I come.

After saw some informations that Google fix this problem I do it manually an update to my Google Chrome and now I can play games again but I think that this update need to be automatic and not manually to Chrome users not go to other browsers, because nobody do it manually updates in a browser.
It's only my opinion to Google :) Put this in automatic and required Chrome update and not manually.

For about 10 days now I can play the pogo game I choose, until the end where it freezes - no jackpot spin, play again, etc. I THINK I have the latest google chrome and Java, but how the *expletive* can I even know? Companies keep changing and updating things all the time, without telling us! It seems we have to uninstall and reinstall everything every 2 weeks to keep them running right!  I am deeply disappointed they removed the "report a problem" option from the chrome tools menu a day or 2 ago!  I thought they cared about the problems. The "guides" answer is a joke.

log on to pogo fine. when click on game to play, erratically get this error message
No data received
Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this webpage later.
Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, so I don't think it's an issue with my computer settings, java, etc. Sometimes I can get into the game by going to the bottom of the home page, clicking on the category (like word games) and then clicking on the game I want to play. But today even that won't work.

All was fine until a few days ago. There WAS a large windows update (I run XP) around then - perhaps something got reset. Anyone have any ideas on what to try to fix this?

Boy, you ARE a RAT aren't you ? I have installed the latest version of snow lepoard in order to continue to play POGO. It is frustrating! I can't play using Chrome with my MAC, and have to use Safari and reload the
latest version of Java. All this phishing POGO allows finally let HACKERS invade and I had to pay to get the MAC cleaned up....THat has never happened!!! I think I may stop PLAYING POGO, also. IT seems "NOT OUR PROBLEM!" Is the answer these days.  We use MAC, cuz we know it filters better and DONT need expensive VIRUS protection.  I THINK some of these HACKERS work for the companies that sell you the Protection and Clean up the problems. I used to work for one of the Largest Communication company in the World, and I know it was ALL about Money and getting ADS out there..If they had a problem with acompany not allowing them to sell...They simply bought them out. (HOSTILE take-over).  I will also say, I witnessed a bill collection company also selling Idenity Theft Protection!! NO KIDDING! They operated out of a big warehouse in Fort Worth,TX. I was repairing a network problem they were having. It's an EYE OPENER working as a TECH. I have heard Mangement in a large company making bets with one another over how things would happen as they planned to Fire a long term employee in another room. They had been in there with a serious  face and then behind the closed door they were laughing and joking about it.
  LOTS OF RATS out there!!! They LIVE with GARBAGE!

I have a fix for this it seems to work fine.

Open up a new tab in chrome, type in chrome://plugins/

You might have to click the details thing to expand all the info.

Scroll down to the Jave section, there should be a little checkbox labeled "always allowed" CHECK THAT

Then in another tab go to pogo,sign in and select a game to play  java should prompt you probably 2 times about wanting to run something from EAGAMES or whatever...CHECK the always allow or don't ask for this publisher again checkbox, then click yes.

It should now load up the game you want. THEN, once that is done...test it by signing out of pogo, going back to the plugin for java tab were were in...and UNchecking the always allowed checkbox. Clear your history and cookies. then open a new tab and log back into pogo. All should be ok now as in doing what we just did basically told Java it was ok to run those scripts that pogo wanted to run.

I just followed my own steps above to check again and i'm logged back into pogo and playing games with NO problem.  Hope this fix works for you guys!

Have a good one!

Re: I can't play my games on Pogo.com, what's wrong? Janet Treash 10/8/13 7:43 AM
Every since People @ Best Buy downloaded Google Chrome my pogo games have been messed up. Having trouble playing several; had to allow pop up for Scrabble but yet when I tried to play again today it wouldn't even load.  And when I play Free Cell on my Windows from my Windows game, the cards freeze on me. I have my password checked to save but I have to put it in every time I try to play my games. If I cannot play pogo, I do not want google chrome.
