My Pandora just stopped working. I tried many things. But so far the only solution I've been able to discover was to reset the fire stick back to mfg setting
This means I lost everything on the firestick had to reload every app I was using

I am having the same problem with my fire stick. Pandora will not load. I contacted Amazon, was referred to Pandora customer service. They gave me a new password, along with instructions to uninstall and reinstall. I can sign in, but Pandora will not load. I just get the spinning icon. Ended up paying extra for a Comcast upgrade so I can use Pandora on the TV. Wish Amazon and Pandora would fix this so I am not paying twice.

I agree I have 2 firesticks one older and one just this year the old one was working until they pushed out 2.0.11 not Pandora doesn't play on any of them but does play on kindle and any other device we have smart tv phones etc. Only issue I have is Amazon needs to work with Pandora to address a bug that spans different platforms like this not the customer.

If I disconnect the Fire Stick power supply for a short while and then plug it in again, Pandora then goes back to normal functioning....for a while. They I unplug/plug over again. Since all other apps are working, I suspect Pandora has a bug that they're not addressing.

After my call for support and a device exchange: Amazon has this very wrong. I am told that it is not an Amazon issue and is then sent an email:
"Thank you for taking the time to speak with me. Please contact Pandora as they are better suited to assist you in getting your problem resolved. If you need additional assistance or have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us again. You can reach Kindle Customer Support by phone or chat by clicking Contact Us on our Kindle support pages at:

Thanks for using Kindle.
An utter and complete disregard for your customer in this case and an unacceptable answer. I will certainly follow up with any other means. I am not angry, however, you provide a product / platform and it is not 100%, it is not my responsibility to help you with your service.

You, lee, had the opportunity to do several things:
1. offer to adjust the price I paid for the fire stick - offsetting the value of a nonfunctional Pandora app
2. offer to extend my membership offsetting the value of a nonfunctional Pandora app.
3. Telling me something, anything, other than for me to address the issue on behalf of Amazon.

Your company customer support is superior to nearly any other company and this single answer is still enough for me to change an entire way that I shop, support, use any and all of your products.

I am asking you to forward my email to your next level of customer support, copied to me, and continue to address this issue.

Same problem. Disgusted.

I posted a year ago with no solution. I use my laptop for Pandora if I am having guests and do not want to be embarrassed by my Amazon Fire 7. It is also much slower than my older Kindle fire.

I'm having the exact same issue. I called Amazon support they guy did exactly what I did (and you did by uninstalling and installing again) with no help. He then transferred me to Pandora's call center to log the issue with them. App developers don't fix bugs for individual users. It seems this is a common problem and Amazon and Pandora should fix it and send it out to their users.

Has anyone got an answer to this?

Having the same issue. Most frustrating!

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 26, 2016, 4:40:54 PM PST
This is probably because of the Automatic Smart Suspend feature, which you can turn off in settings under power :)

I have found that on the firestick use the Alexa app and to re-synchronize pandora app

That would be a question to ask the Pandora developers, not Amazon.

I'm guessing that Pandora doesn't supply the lock screen controls on the Fire for some reason.

Hi, I bought the Kindle Fire HD 8 on black Friday and I am pretty happy with it, but I do have one question. I use it to listen to Pandora all day at work, and not being able to control Pandora from the lock screen like I could on my Galaxy Tab 3 is really bugging me. (I have the version with special offers.) Does anyone know if the Pandora controls show on the lock screen if I pay to remove special offers?

Jim Ryan says:
Yep, just timed it, it stops after 1 hour. Weird, but because it is so exact I have to believe it's planned.

Jim Ryan says:
Both Pandora and Amazon music do the same thing with me. It plays for awhile, not sure how long, timing it now, but would guess about 30 to 60 min. Then it just stops. I can start it again, and it does the same thing. Sort of like if you have the free account, but mine is paid for.

How does one view their bookmarked tracks on Pandora?

Posted on Jul 13, 2016, 6:10:00 PM PDT
When I have Pandora playing on my kindle and go to play a game, the music stops. Anyone know how to keep the music playing?

Loaded pandora on my kindle fire and can't get any sound. What should I do?

Happy Guy says:
Yes, I bought an iPad Mini so I would have reliable use of Pandora and better apps. I now use the Fire 7 2015 as a an extra Kindle for reading. Sometimes the Fire plays Pandora; sometimes not. I don't know why; I had no problems playing Pandora with my Fire 7 HD.

I'm so glad ... we all love Pandora!!

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 2, 2016, 7:24:19 AM PDT
Thank you. Bought fire at black friday 2015 but just getting around to putting Pandora on it - and it wouldn't play sound. Did what you said and works perfectly now. Thanks so much for posting. Cheers.
