On this Amazon Fire table, the instructions could not be followed as described. The Pandora app was removed and re-installed, and it now working. I have a message to the Pandora team. The error message was of no help. It stated: ……………. Waiting for connection. Try again: CANCEL RETRY …………… It provides no usable information. For example: Does the app have an internet connection? Can it contact the Pandora web site? Is the account valid? Show that account name. Is the password accepted? The Pandora team can come up with additional items that would be helpful to the user. Please improve your message.

Sorry for the delay, could not get back to this until now. Power cycled a few times. Left off overnight and returned to this, no progress. Viewed CNN.com, it updated. Type in pandora.com in the URL and get the Cancel Retry dialog. Swipe down to get a dialog, result was nothing like anticipated. There is a brightness bar with six icons below that. One looks like “Airplane mode” and another like a sleep mode. At the bottom is the options for “Manage Notifications” and “CLEAR ALL.” The latter returns me to the Pandora screen which does not connect. Found my way back to Settings. There is no “Apps and Games” but there is “Apps and Notifications” Go there and there is no “All” There is “Amazon App Settings” so open that. There is nothing like “All” or something to clear all data. Go to Pandora App to find a top level title of “Show Notifications” Open it to see some alerts. Turn on all alerts. Backup to the top level of Apps for Pandora. There is an UNINSTALL and FORCE STOP. There is a list of items: Notifications: On Permissions: No permissions granted Storage: 427 MB used in internal storage Data usage: 12.4 GB used since Mar 9 And some more general stuff that does not appear to be Pandora related. Did the force stop and went back to Pandora. Same thing, cannot connect. What should I try now? Reminder: This tablet worked for a couple of years and stopped when we moved. The network has changed and it has not worked on this new network. I can use the tablet to view sites such as CNN.COM, but still have concerns about network problems.

We purchased an Amazon Fire tablet, 8 inch, and use it only for music. It worked well for over two years then we moved. The WiFi connection was changed, and we have internet access. For example, cnn.com shows the news just fine. When we try to start pandora, it displays the pulsating P for a while then opens a small dialog with the text:
Waiting for connection. Try again?
It has two buttons, CANCEL and RETRY.
While writing this, Pandora is playing over my laptop so a connection is possible.
There is no information at all as to the problem. We don't use tablets much at all so please be patient and explicit with your replies.
Thank you for your time.
mod edit: changed title for clarity
