At that point, the player screen should take you to Pandora -- if not, hit Enter.

Troubleshooting on Vizio

First make sure that your device has the latest Firmware by checking for a new update. If an update is available, try loading Pandora again once the update is complete.

Here are a few standard network troubleshooting steps:

  • Try connecting directly via an ethernet cable rather than wirelessly (if you have this option on your device), and see if that helps.
  • Try rebooting your modem and router and restarting the device.
  • Try removing and re-adding the app (if this is possible on your device).

If none of those steps help your issue, we've heard from some listeners that setting the IP address on the TV manually has helped.

Your success in setting a manual IP depends on your router. If a router is configured for DHCP, it might not always let you set a static IP. You might need to know your router's IP address to fill in all the fields, and pick an IP address that fits within the allowed range.

Instructions for manually setting the IP address:

  1. From the home screen, press the Menu button on the remote.
  2. Select Network
  3. Select Manual
  4. Under this menu, you should see your current IP address info (IP, Subnet, Gateway, Pref. DNS, Alt. DNS). Write it down.
  5. Set DHCP to Off.
  6. Fill in all the IP info that you wrote down again.

Usually it will look something like this:

IP: 192.168.0.[some number between 1-255 of your choosing]
Pref DNS:

Once you've done this, try loading Pandora again.
