Pandora is one of the most popular music streaming services. Pandora is different from other music streaming platforms that require you to choose individual tracks or playlists. Instead, Pandora chooses songs, albums, and podcasts based on the user’s preferences.
The company has a large fan base due to its unique approach to streaming. Pandora strives to provide a pleasant experience for its subscribers, but there will always be problems.
While most of these problems can be resolved quickly without having to contact customer service, others may require some guidance. Below are simple solutions to any Pandora error code that you might encounter.
1. Pandora app is waiting for connection
This is the most common problem among subscribers who use Wi-Fi to access the service. Your phone usually comes with an antenna to help it connect to the WiFi router.
Your Pandora app will continue to tell you that your antenna is failing and will be replaced. You can verify this by clicking here
- Next, go to settings. Then click on the Wi-Fi icon to turn it off.
- After it has turned off for a while, turn it back on and open the app again.
- Resetting your device’s network connections is an option if it fails to work. This will delete any VPN or Bluetooth connections.
- Check if the Pandora app still has glitches by entering the passwords again.
If you are still having trouble connecting to Pandora after following the steps above, it could be that the problem is with your Wi-Fi connection, not the app. The app won’t connect if the Wi-Fi signal is weak or fluctuating.
- You can verify this by connecting to another network that seems more reliable.
- Log out and log back in if the problem persists.
If the problem is with the antenna, an iPhone repair technician will be able to fix it.
2. Pandora app does not work on iPhon
Restarting your iPhone will solve most problems. If your Pandora app doesn’t load or refuses to connect, restart your phone.
This is because your phone restarts and all apps are available again.
Here’s how it works:
- For at least three seconds, hold the power button.
- The screen will display a slider. To power off your device, swipe the red icon to the left.
- Allow your iPhone to remain on for at least two minutes before turning it back on.
- Simply press the power button to turn on your device. An Apple logo will appear on the screen.
The Pandora app should now be open. Try the troubleshooting steps outlined in the next point if it is not.
3. Pandora app won’t launch, isn’t responding, keeps crashing, buffering
You may need to troubleshoot if your Pandora app continues to crash after you’ve tried restarting your device or fixing your Wi-Fi.
Here’s how it works:
- Clear all app data first. Press the menu icon (not the app!) on your phone screen.
- Navigate to Settings and tap the icon of Pandora App. Scroll down until you see it, then touch it
- You will be able to choose whether to force stop, disable or uninstall the app. Tap Clear data.
- Log back into Pandora from the Pandora app’s home screen.
Try these suggestions if you still have issues.
- If you have an SD card or external memory, make sure Pandora is saved in your local memory. If the app is stored on external devices, it will not perform at its best.
- You should disable the Pandora app, or exempt it from the battery optimization tool if you use it often.
- You can also lower your audio quality settings. You can do this by going to Pandora’s homepage, clicking on the profile icon-select options- then click on the sound icon. Uncheck the box that says high-quality audio.
