Pandora Stoped working on my Sony Brava XBR49X800D
Saturday we were enjoying listening to Pandora while working. We got the "Are You Still Listening?" message and turned Pandora off because we were in fact getting ready to watch a movie (Coincidental Timing) We have been unable to listen to Pandora on this device ever since.
Tried clearing cache, clearing data, uninstall & reinstall, Updated Smart TV, Checked all audio connections. restarted the router, restarted the modem, unplugged and reset the Smart TV, all without success.
It shows the Equalizer display (the sound output graph) next to the name of the song that is "Playing" but the progress bag at the bottom does not change from 0:00 and you cannot advance to the next song. You can change the station and that will show a "New Song" is "Playing" but it doesn't actually ever play. I have tried most all my stations without success. It worked briefly after a Cache clearing but stopped at a minute in and hasn't worked since. Help!! What else can I try or am I stuck listening to over the air radio?

@belovedbyHim Let's try removing the device association from your account and running through the setup process again to see if that helps.

We got it working by rebooting and unplugging every device the whole system both from the power and from each other and letting it sit for 30 minutes. We then began slowly bringing each item back online. since everything was a "Factory Reset" we had to go slow. We started with bringing the router back up then the tv, then the reciever, each of the components for that set up and then finally logging back into each of the streaming services including Pandora. It took nearly 2 hours. It should not have happened. All that changed from the night before was that we went to bed at 1am and at 9:30 am the next morning when we turned everything back on, we couldn't get any sound or for Pandora to play at all. I didn't know that sleeping was a bad thing!
PANDORA: I'm having the same problem with my Android TV on our new Sony TV (song looks like it's playing, but is not actually producing any sounds while displaying triple zeroes for song length and time of song). I've used Pandora for years and am not willing to spend 2 hours rebooting everything - if there's not a quick fix, I'll use one of the many other available apps to stream music. Please advise.
