Hello, Please click the link below and scroll to page 103 then follow the steps to Restore the Factory Settings on the Yamaha:

Set the unit up as if it were new and see if you can connect to Pandora.

If not, then uninstall the Yamaha App from your phone and reinstall it.

Let me know what happens.

Okay, I need to step out but will be back online later tonight.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Well, so far nothing worked. I reset the receiver and reloaded the app on my phone nothing worked. Receiver says it is connected but the Pandora app says not connected to the internet. (access error)
Expert:  Rusty replied 8 months ago.

Hi, my name is Rusty. I'm a different expert. Can you please verify that the receiver is connected to your network? Pandora can be connected, but you need to be connected to the internet before it can receive any content.
