Can't Access Yahoo! News - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Can't access any Yahoo News. Just starts to load and then freezes. This has been going on for at least a week.

Stefan Baartman · 25 May 2016 - 21:43

News page will not scroll down; tried a full refresh with Ctrl +F5. No change.

William Purcell · 25 May 2016 - 21:26

The scroll bar does not appear when I open a story in Yahoo News.

Rod Ruger · 4 April 2016 - 19:21

"My comments" button has disappears. Comment in order by "recent" will also not load.

When I try to access a story, I can see about one quarter of the page and the font is HUGE. I'd need a 40 inch screen to see it all.

Just how difficult is it to fix the news page so the stories flip like they used too?

I am having continual problems with various areas of yahoo. Lately, I'm getting "page cannot be displayed" error messages that I never used to get. Is yahoo just not compatible with internet explorer anymore?

Yahoo seems down. All other home pages work, all book marks work, Yahoo doesn't. And, as always their news is 24 hours old. YIKES.

Yahoo front page for news looks different.. Cannot see the drop down 'more section' cannot comment on any news stories. Says that "we are having trouble connecting right now"

Edit: The front news page keeps changing at different times when I go on line.. Can't see the more drop down window.. Can't make comments even though I am signed in..

yahoo news feed has been down/not functioning properly so long I switched my homepage from that to another, probably wont go back to it unless someone at yahoo says what was wrong. I also set up a gmail account and plan on doing away with my yahoo mail once I can get all my contacts transferred. So disappointed in yahoo, a simple note to all its users could have avoided their obvious loss of loyal customers. Someone at the VERY TOP should lose a job as a result, but as usual it will probabl be a little person....

Links to Yahoo News stories and to access "more" or "see all comments" or "reply" just links to the top of page. More often pages display only a BLANK page only.

My problem is with the Yahoo news site. I receive my notifications ok but when I click on "view all replies" or go to use the green/red thumbs it shoots up to the top of the page, thus enabling you to use it. This has been going on for a few days now and has stopped me using a site I, and many others, used to enjoy. Please fix this asap Yahoo or you're going to lose a lot of users.

Lp Johnson · 12 February 2013 - 17:06

February 12, 2013 This morning when read the News, the notifications boxes at the top of the page showed 4 new messages and 2 notifications for comments I'd made on News Articles. I didn't open them then, and now this evening when I open the News there are No notifications, No 'new' emails -neither in Notifications nor in the Inbox-and NO Comments showing at all on any News Article Page! Now, is that just me, or is Yahoo going through a serious spazz out this evening?
