I'm experiencing the same "Access Error" across all (3) of my Yamaha devices all of a sudden - I can play Pandora fine on my PC through web page, and on my phone with Pandora app. This just started happening for no apparent reason. Network access from my Yamaha's is fine as they can play Internet radio stations just fine. I can't even log back in/or out - the Yamaha just refuses to even try to connect with "Access error" . I find it difficult to believe all three of my Yamaha Musiccast devices failed at the same time, this must have something to do with my Pandora account?

Hi there, @Bella2020. 👋
Looks like the device was already removed from your account. I do see that you were able to reactivate Pandora on your Yamaha device recently. This could indicate that you were in touch with a member of our team via email or live chat.
Let us know if you continue to have trouble. 🎧
Good morning @Adam
I have rebooted the modem and Yamaha multiple times and continue to receive the access error. I see that this problem appears widespread in the community. Is there a compatibility issue with Yamaha and Pandora, or are your engineers able to solve the issue?
Hi @candydoc! Sorry to hear this is still happening. We've reported your experience to our engineering team for further investigation.
In some cases, a device reset as helped past users. For specific steps on how to reset your device I recommend checking the user manual for your specific device.
Hi@hammelswest - Thanks for posting, sorry to hear this is happening. Users have reported that removing the device connection from their Pandora account has helped. I'm happy to do this for you from my end. When this takes affect, you'll automatically be logged. Let me know if you continue to have trouble after logging back in.
I know this is an old post but I began getting the same issue recently after changing ISP on my Yamaha RX-V575. I can see my receiver on the network and it did the update fine but if I go to use Pandora it gives me an "access error" on the screen and I can't access switching, adding, or removing a new Pandora account from the menu. I tried changing my password but it remains locked out. Please help!
Hey, @audiophile82. 👋
Sorry for the trouble.
I removed the Yamaha connection associated with your Pandora account. When this takes affect, you'll automatically be logged out. Can you run through the set-up and see if you're still having the same trouble?
Additionally, other listeners have mentioned that rebooting their network connection has helped with this issue.
Let me know if this helps. 🎧
I'm still having issues with the Yamaha receiver. We've reset the receiver, logged out and back in on Pandora within the receiver app. Again, it appears to be finding our account on the receiver but logging in through my phone continually shows an "Access Error" message at the bottom.
Are you receiving an error message when connecting to your Yamaha? In-home device like Yamaha are associated with your Pandora account by using a code that needs to be entered on a separate device for activation.
If you need to reset the connection with your Pandora account, I can do that from my end. Let me know.
Hi @devintrier - Sorry to hear that you're still having trouble.
We’ve unfortunately exhausted all of our known solutions. I’ve gone ahead and forwarded your experience to our engineering team for further investigation.
I would recommend contacting Yamaha Support for additional assistance.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
So I got around to trying to log in today and tried all of your steps to no avail. As a weird side-note, if I enter my password incorrectly it auto-prompts me to re-enter my password but if I enter it correctly it gives me the Access Error message immediately. Don't know if this helps
Request to have account removed from yamaha Music Cast. I signed out after getting processing login error. Now I am unable to reconnect to pandora. I recieve unable to register error.
Hi @BOsborne! Thanks for posting.
I moved your message over to a similar thread: Yamaha - Error message: "Access Error"
I've gone ahead and removed your Yamaha connection from your Pandora account. When this takes affect, you'll automatically be logged out. Please be patience as this may not happen immediately.
Let me know if you continue to have trouble.
