I’m not able to start Pandora version 4.2.1 from my Sony TV XBR-55X900F software version 8.0.0. It goes directly to a gray screen and then returns to the home page. I’ve tried clearing all data and cache, uninstalling and reinstalling, and doing a full TV shut down and restart. What steps can I take?

Hi @DPT_Archer! Thanks for posting to community, sorry for any trouble with Pandora on your Sony TV.
Sounds like you've done quite a bit of troubleshooting already. I've enabled a trace on your account to help us understand what may be happening.
I'd like to remove the Sony device association with your Pandora account and have you run through the set-up again to see if this will help.
In the meantime, I've passed along the information you provided to our engineering team for further investigation.
I've had this problem for months now, and I'm one frazzled nerve away from terminating my subscription. I have the same model SONY TV, XBR-55X900F, and I've repeatedly performed the same procedures as "DPT Archer" with little success. Pandora plays for less than an hour and then just stops on a blue Pandora logo screen. Frustrating!
I’m having similar trouble with my XR-65A80CJ. When selecting Pandora I get a grey screen. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, cleared cache, restarted my router and no help. If I unplug for 30 seconds it works until the next time. All other streaming apps work. If I switch to my Firestick, Pandora operates normally. It seems Sony and Pandora don’t work well together.
I just purchased a Sony Bravia 48 inch TV and having the same issue with Pandora. All the other apps I use work just fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Pandora app with no success. Has anyone else besides the one person solved this issue with their Sony TV?
I did get it solved. I was having issues with Pandora and HBO Max.
I have a Gryphon router. I got Gryphon support involved. They did a firmware update, then rebooted the router, then rebooted (cold boot where I unplug the TV) and then both Pandora and HBO Max worked as normal.
hope this helps
