Customer Question

I have signed up for Pandora and have a problem.

I have WiFi and my iPad is sitting right next to it. When I pick ad select a music genre, i.e. Whitney Huston the "scroll" sign appears and grinds away. Sometime Whiney will come up and begin to play. Other times the scroll will keep grinding on.

When I am fortunate and get a music genre selected and it beginning to play, most times is will stop after a few bars and then resume, starting-stopping-starting. OR THE NEXT IN LINE, THOUGH VISIBLE ON MY IPAD. WILL NOT PLAY AT ALL. This includes to evidence on the "progress scroll" that it is doing so without sound.

All other devices are working well on the WiFi I use.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

Try these things:

Make sure your iPad is either connected with WiFi or 3/4G cellular service.

Make sure iOS 5.1 is running on your iPad. IF not, update.

Delete the app by holding it down until it shakes and then touch the ( X ) in the upper left hand corner to delete. Reinstall the app on your iPad.

Try a hard reset by holding down the Sleep/Wake + Home button simultaneously for 10 seconds or more and shortly you will see an Apple logo appears on the screen.

Reply back if this does not fix the problem please.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
