I was finally able to make Pandoro work with my Samsung TU7000 t.v.
I had to go into my router and change the DNS setting to Cloudfare 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.
I also connected my wifi to the 2.4 ghz instead of the 5ghz. The T.V. kept suggesting to use the 5ghz which i was and it was causing problems.
Hope this helps out.
I have a Samsung smart TV. Pandora stops after playing any song that is more than 5 minutes long. It will continue only if I hit the next song button. This has been an issue for at least 12 months. I contacted Pandora techs but they offer no solution.
@oldmamallama I am not aware that it has been resolved. I have an Amazon Firestick and just use Pandora through that rather than directly through the TV. It works perfectly that way on all 3 of my Samsung TVs
"We understand how frustrating this experience has been for you, and we wanted you to know that both the Pandora and Samsung teams are working hard to resolve the problem."
working hard??? this is total BS. How hard can this be to fix? Its been over a year and still can't get any music to lay on the Pandora app.
Its kinda like Pandora don't really care or Give Sh** .
Not a happy customer.
Same problem with no sound and no time bar advance. I've played Pandora for 5 years and suddenly it's stopped. I suspect Pandora won't ever work again. I switched to Spotify on my TV.
It appears Samsung & Pandora have had a year and a half since this last update to resolve this issue; however, I just purchased a new Samsung TV and installed the app yesterday and … still no dice. What’s the solution, y’all? I have a hard time believing you have this many dissatisfied folks and haven’t prioritized a fix. Looking forward to hearing the resolution.
Had the same issue with my Samsung 55 series 8. Went looking after only the adds on the Pandora app had sound. Nothing sound from my saved stations.
Does Pandora support Samsung QN55Q7DAAFXZA SmartTv QLED?
Pandora app launches but not sound & song Progression bar shows 0:00_____0:00
once in a very long while, it will play 2 song & progression bar active. Once song is over, it reverts back to no sound & inactive progression. Deleted/Uninstalled/Reinstalled numerous times & still inoperable.
Add me to the list of unhappy Samsung QLED smart TV owners dissatisfied with their Pandora subscription lately.
Every other smart TV in the house (Vizio, Sharp), tablets (Samsung), Roku, and phones (LG, Samsung/Android) play song after song without issue. However, something changed earlier this year on this TV. Songs WILL load and play BUT it takes 5 to 10 minutes every time ~ regardless if it is the first song after loading the app or every next song ~ it is a buzz kill.
Guessing ~ I suspect there is a bug with security / subscription vs with ads logic. e.g. ~ IF I click on upgrade, the screen immediately goes black and it is over = Appears to crash the app completely: Back button will not save you but Home button will get you out and back to the Samsung Home menu.
Side note ~ When others here complain there is no sound, perhaps they being misled by the 'play/pause' status not showing as paused AND the little EQ gif that kind of misleads us into thinking a signal is actively being sent to the preamp. Wondering if those folks have waited 10 minutes to know if a song finally will eventually start playing.
Pandora won't play on my Samsung TV more often than not. It appears normal, the bar graph is moving, but the timeline for the song is not advancing and there is no sound. I have logged out of Pandora and logged back in. I have unplugged my TV. Nothing changes. I hold my breath when I log in because sometimes it works, but lately it more often does not. I listen all work day on my computer at work. I can get it to play on my phone, my home computer and my laptop. I do have another Samsung TV that behaves this way as well. Help!
I’ve basically had to give up. I believe the issue is rooted in the app and the way they are doing data calls. I notice the app will “give up” and move to the next song again and again after 15 secs or so. The Samsung apps are inherently slow so I’m betting this tricks Pandora into thinking it doesn’t have a quality connection.
fortunately for me my Samsung in the LR is using a ROKu which works perfectly. And is almost soooooo much faster when using any of the apps.
for the bedroom I simply run pandora on my phone and it broadcasts to the tv via airplay. Sound is exactly the same and I can control my volume on the tv from the phone.
Honestly, this works better as we put the TV on black screen when playing music and I can still control pandora without having to take the tv out of black. Which I would do even if the tv app worked.
just thought someone might appreciate the alternate work around ideas.
