A similar fault is happening with me. I'm listening on an iMac. When I open Pandora sound is on only for a few minutes then the sound mutes, but in all appearances the music is still playing, the sound icon isn't muted, and the song time indicator is moving. The only way I found to get the sound back on is to close and restart Pandora, or change the station. Please advise on how I might resolve this. Thank you
Hey, @Rickta. 👋

How are you listening when this happens?
In the meantime, here are some good steps to try out to see if it helps resolve your issue:

Pandora not playing on my PC with Firefox and Windows 10.
My account works fine on the iPhone. But on the PC I hit the play button and no sound, though I can tell the song is playing.
Here are a few things to check:
Pandora has a separate volume control. Make sure it isn't all the way down, the volume control is located in the bottom right corner of the Pandora page.
If that's not it, make sure you are plugged into the main speaker outputs of your sound card. Sometimes there are two outputs. Pandora may only play from one of them on machines with some sound drivers. Updated drivers have fixed this for many listeners.
If on a Windows machine, make sure that the "Wave Balance" volume is set at least 50% on your advanced volume control window. This is accessible by double-clicking the speaker in the lower-right corner of your screen.
If this doesn't help, I recommend running through the following troubleshooting steps: Firefox Troubleshooting

Hewlett Packard desktop -- no error messages, the music just stops yet the dots are still moving as if the music is still playing. This is occurring on every station. The music plays for a few minutes and stops as described above.
