How to Fix Avatar Not Working on Roblox

Can’t figure out why your avatar is not working on Roblox?

In Roblox, each player is given an avatar, a human-like character that reflects their appearance in every Roblox game. Players can customize their avatars with a vast selection of body parts, accessories, skin colors, animations, and more. 

With this, you can customize the way your character looks in any possible way you can imagine. 

However, if you’re reading this, the avatar feature on Roblox is probably not working. 

Based on what we know, this problem occurs due to several reasons. It can be related to Roblox’s servers, your installation files, or system configuration. 

Whichever the case is, not having your avatar while playing Roblox is annoying. 

To help you out, we’ve decided to make a guide for fixing your avatar if it’s not working on Roblox. 

Let’s jump right in!

1. Check Roblox’s Servers. 

When you run into errors or issues on Roblox, the first thing you should check is the status of its servers. Being an online platform, Roblox is highly dependent on its servers to keep its services and features available to the users. 

To check the status of Roblox, you can use third-party tools such as Downdetector

If there’s an ongoing issue with Roblox, we can only suggest that you wait for Roblox’s team to address the problem. 

On the other hand, proceed to the next solution below if Roblox’s servers are online.


2. Restart Your Computer. 

Some of Roblox’s resources are probably not loaded correctly on your system, which causes some features not to work. If this is the case, you can try restarting your computer to reload its resources and eliminate any errors that may have occurred. 

Follow the steps below to restart your Windows PC:

  1. On your computer, access the Start Menu on the Taskbar
  2. Next, click on the Power Options tab. 
  3. Finally, select Restart and wait for your system to reboot. 
Restart your PC

Once done, go back to Roblox and check if your avatar is now working. 

3. Try Recreating Your Avatar. 

Your avatar’s data on Roblox may have gotten corrupted, which explains why it’s not loading on any game. In this case, the only option you have is to redraw your avatar on Roblox Studio. 

While this will consume time, it can be an effective solution for fixing your avatar. 

Consider this a good time to make some updates and changes to your look as well. 😀

4. Clear Your Temporary Files. 

Like mobile apps, Roblox stores temporary data on your computer to improve its performance. However, these temp files accumulate over time or become corrupted, and your PC may have difficulties loading them. 

To fix this, clear your temp files on Windows to refresh Roblox’s data: 

  1. First, press the Windows + R keys on your keyboard to launch Run Command
  2. Next, type ‘%temp%’ and click OK to open the folder. 
  3. Lastly, select all the contents of that folder and delete them.

Go back to Roblox afterward and check if the problem is solved. 

5. Reinstall Roblox. 

If none of the solutions above worked for you, it might indicate that there’s a problem with Roblox’s installation files. To fix this, you’ll need to reinstall Roblox on your computer to ensure that its resources are working. 

Here’s how you can remove Roblox from your system: 

  1. On your computer, go to the Start Menu and look for the Control Panel
  2. After that, click on Open
  3. Now, select Uninstall a Program and find Roblox from the list. 
  4. Finally, right-click on Roblox and choose Uninstall

  1. Open roblox on anotter device or Android platform. Discriminates whether it’s device or website related.
    In the RBX**** files there might be info about files/folders on website not found and the 5000ms timeout.
    Deleting a bunch of background processes in task manager is the only solution that did work for us. And can be replicated. The little one discovered that.
    Don’t believe that deleting temp files ever works. They’re session related.
